The Key Role of the Provisional Restoration as a Blueprint in Esthetic Tx

Description:
Thru the direct Aesthetic Provisional Application technique, the provisional will serve as a preparation guide, aesthetic guide to both patient and lab as well as an occlusal guide. This gives the practitioner total control over the case, gives the patient a true visualization of what the permanent teeth will look like and gives the laboratory an accurate tooth position to be copied into final form. The d-APA is done with flowable compostite in the patient’s mouth thru a series of additions and reductions to the teeth to gain final position. Although challenging, the technique becomes very rewarding by placing artistry and control into the hands of the dentist.

Great Presentation!

hello dr apa, the luxatemp gave you enough resistance to manipulate it for the provisionals comparing from other brands? thank you for your great presentation. Regards from Mexico

great presentation, very practical and easy to do!! thank you

Ronald Goldstein - (1/5/2015 2:24 PM)

Very good presentation, Michael and the format is the new standard of esthetic dentistry today.

Chad Lazar - (1/5/2015 12:25 PM)

Interesting case. However, I would have corrected this pt's mal-alignment prior to placing veneers.

Yu Cheng Chu - (12/26/2014 7:24 PM)

Dr. Apa, do you have a course for this technique? Thanks!

R. Terry Councill - (12/26/2014 9:48 AM)

Great Technique. I have been doing this for a while and it truly is a motivating moment. When recreating a smile design, I struggle with the tooth form decision and seem to end up with the same design almost every time. When "simply" enhancing the smile, I tend to copy the original tooth form unless there are strong patient preferences. I wonder if you have away to predict proper tooth form without a lot or trial and error. I have been guilty of designing square teeth for men and rounded teeth for women.

I am Yao-Tsung Wu, a dentist from Taiwan. My dentalXP premium member period is end. How to upgrade my premium membership? I don't know my coupon code. Thank you Dr. Yao_tsung Wu

Minimally Invasive Approaches in Tooth Preparation and Prosthetics: The Role of Magnification
New technologies in adhesive, ceramic and digital dentistry are constantly shifting the restorative landscape. When it comes to utilizing these new technologies to develop excellence in restorative dentistry, optimizing the visual field is critical. This is true whether a clinician is looking at diagnostic analysis, tooth preparation, provisional fabrication, impression taking or evaluating the final restoration for cementation. This presentation will demonstrate the advantages of utilizing microscopes, both in macro and micro modes, for enhancing restorative dentistry as well as full-mouth rehabilitations. Optimizing the visual field is critical.

Digital Workflow for Anterior Implant Aesthetics Premium Member Content

Digital Workflow for Anterior Implant Aesthetics
We have seen excellent results in the aesthetic zone when immediate implant placement techniques have been used. A review of the current literature reveals and confirms the re-education of mid-buccal facial recession is best when an immediate provisional is used. If we can digitize this information and create a crown-root form matrix, we can allow tissue to maintain the exact 3D position of the crown and root of the tooth that is to be replaced. A technique using "dicom" files and "STL" files of the original tooth-root will be demonstrated. This will allow ideal healing of the surrounding hard and soft tissues in for any implants restoration.

Two Immediate Temporization Methods Exemplified: Flap vs. Punch Technique in Implant Surgery
Protocols and techniques for immediate tooth replacement in the esthetic zone have become more popular and predictable within the past decade. Two different clinical scenarios are presented where immediate temporization of implants placed into healed or augmented ridges is exemplified. The benefits of augmentation prior to implant placement and temporization are that flap elevation is not required; therefore, the blood supply to the labial plate is not compromised, thereby eliminating potential midfacial recession. In addition, the soft tissue subgingival shape of the temporary crown can be non-surgically sculpted at the time of implant placement since the patient is already anesthetized.

CAD/CAM Anterior Esthetic Implant Restorations: The BellaTek Encode Healing Abutment and CAD-Block Ceramics

CAD/CAM Anterior Esthetic Implant Restorations: The BellaTek Encode Healing Abutment and CAD-Block Ceramics
Digital design software programs for teeth and implant restorations have evolved over the past 5 years. Using CBCT scans and digital preoperative scans, the clinician can properly plan the placement of implant fixtures. Various software programs and intraoral scanners offer analysis of proper implant position, angle of implant placement, and depth of tissue and occlusal clearance. The utilization of coded healing abutments (BellaTek®, Encode®, Biomet 3i) may also add to the precision of design and calibration of all tissue contacting points of the emerging abutment. This article will introduce and describe a current model for fabrication of ideal abutments, and fabrication of CAD/ CAM restorations for the anterior esthetic zone.
