Integration of 3D Digital Technology: The Advancements in Today’s Dentistry

Description:
In today’s world of digital dentistry with the advent of new technologies to the field, the clinician finds himself daily in front of a vast array of new materials, hardware and software, which necessitates their comprehension and use to ride the wave of digital technologies in dentistry which is mounting into a tsunami. So in this Webinar Dr. Gamil will discuss the concept of Total digital solution, and how to understand, integrate and implement it in everyday practice, starting with the phase of scanning: CBCT, Intraoral or in lab optical scanners, face photos, digital models, impression scans and their integration. Then going through the phase of planning using the acquired data using specialized software, showing the added benefit and amazing potentials and ending with the different type of manufacturing such as: 3D printing, Laser sintering, Milling and their applications and how this pool forms together what we call the total digital solutions and how to be familiar with the workflow, implement and ride this wave of tomorrow becoming a reality today.

Excellent Presentation,well done Dr. Rami

Dear Band: 1-The accuracy of CBCT units in term of geometric resolution is measured in voxel size and it varies from 90 micrometer (0.09mm) up to 600 micrometer (0.6mm) and this differs from one manufacturer to another and according to the field of view used. Machines having special modes to scan models or impressions to digitize them can have smaller voxel size some say 50-70 microns. 2- Each 3D software has its advantages according to the specific application needed like implantology, Endodontics, ENT, Airway Analysis, Orthodontics, guided surgery etc... some software are more equipped for certain functions more than the others, it depends on what do you want to use it for. 3-As for the HU in CBCT , it is agreed thus far the they generate "pseudo-HU" or grey levels and not true ones, some research work is done to derive HU from CBCT grey levels by conversion ratios or algorithms like :"Deriving Hounsfield units using grey levels in cone beam computed tomography P Mah, TE Reeves and WD McDavid" It is a big topic both in discussion and research. Hope i answered all your questions.

Dr. Gamil; What is the accuracy of CBCT conebeam units in general? What is the best 3D software you have used? What is the accuracy of hounsfield units for bone density evaluation? thanks Band

Rami Gamil - (10/3/2013 3:06 AM)

Thanks all for your kind words, and I would be glad to answer any questions related to the topic. Best!

What Every Dentist Needs to Know About TM Disorders
Temporomandibular disorders (TMD) are a group of musculoskeletal disorders of the masticatory system. These disorders are common and dentists are the primary care providers. Therefore every dentist should have a sound understanding of TMD so that the most appropriate care will be selected for the patient. This presentation will overview of the role of dentists in the diagnosis and management of TMD.

The Role of Digital Technologies & Materials for Full-Arch Implant Reconstruction Premium Member Content

The Role of Digital Technologies & Materials for Full-Arch Implant Reconstruction
In prosthetic rehabilitations, we used for many years codified and widely described protocols in literature, with results that met our expectations and well above those of our patients. It is true that the advent of new technologies has enabled the dental team to use new material and new equipment that facilitated the production of an adaptation and an accuracy of the prosthetic rehabilitation that has, up to now, been difficult to obtain. In this presentation, we will analyze different cases, highlighting the operational differences that they have developed over time, with the increasing knowledge of the new materials and the daily developing of the new software's. It is also described how traditional materials and techniques have been replaced with other innovative new technologies, and how the results obtained with these are systematic and significantly better in updated generations prior.

Multitasking Digital Dentistry - Part 1 of 2
The "Digital Smile Design" is a technique codified and published in 2011 by Christian Coachman and Marcelo Calamita. This approach has radically changed the way we analyze the aesthetics of our patients and at the same time gave the clinician a great tool of communication with the laboratory and with the patient. In recent years, softwares and applications have been introduced on the market in order to simplify the workflow and make more predictable the outcome. The purpose of the lecture is to resume the current concepts about digital aesthetic preview, and to show new trends.

Prosthodontic treatment ofthe edentulous cleft palate patient presents the dentist with numerous challenges for achieving a satisfactory result for the patient. A technique is described for prosthodontic rehabilitation of a completely edentulous cleft palate patient using bone augmentation procedures, root-form dental implants, and a removable maxillofacial prosthesis. Dental implants may improve prosthesis retention, stability, and occlusal function when used in carefully selected cases.

Oral Soft Tissue Laser Ablative and Coagulative Efficiencies Spectra

Oral Soft Tissue Laser Ablative and Coagulative Efficiencies Spectra
The key to the success of soft tissue lasers is their ability to cut and coagulate the soft tissue at the same time. Present work is aimed to derive the wavelength-dependent differences in photo-thermal ablation and coagulation efficiencies for oral soft tissue pulsed dental Near-IR Diode, Mid-IR Erbium and IR CO2 lasers. Even though the soft tissue photothermal ablation has been extensively studied, there remains a discrepancy between (a) the widely proliferated notion about efficient Near-IR 800-1,100 nm laser ablation of the oral soft tissue, and (b) studies reporting the inefficient soft tissue Near-IR absorption/ablation. Indeed, the notions about “the key to the usefulness of the Nd:YAG is that this wavelength is highly absorbed in oral soft tissue”, and “all currently available dental laser instruments and their emission wavelengths have indications for use for incising, excising... oral soft tissue surgery”, contradict an observation illustrated here...
