Thank you for an excellent reminder in fundamentals and principles.

david fox - (5/22/2010 2:49 PM)

title and content were not entirely consistent. Also in viewing many of the after photos I was troubled by seeing the extensive overbite ( vertical overlap ). When post op photos are shown I always like to comment if something in the clinical po photo. displays a large divergence from that of the normal biologic system. Additionally, with regards to tooth reduction three planes of facial reduction may make more sense than just two planes if both cervical and midfacial planes are addressed simultaneously the potential for greater than necessary reduction may occur.

GOOD PRESENTATION, THANK YOU VERY MUCH

David Garber - (1/9/2010 1:17 PM)

Parts 1,2 & 3 are simply a clear explanation of all the relevant aspects in getting that precise impression ; incorporating the biological understanding , preparation form,retraction and materials - - well presented for essential learning

paula finkel - (1/9/2010 6:25 AM)

It was indeed a very well articulated presentation on cervical preparation.

saurabh mehrotra - (11/5/2009 9:58 AM)

awesome

A very detailed explanation of the importance of periodontal parameters and tooth preparation for taking excellent impressions

Hi John,
In Part 1 of this series, I believe that Dr. Lowe is properly highlighting the necessary periodontal and tooth preparation parameters that are the first necessary steps to achieving a "Master Impression". Hemostasis, tissue retraction and a discussion of impression materials etc... will definitely be forthcoming very soon in upcoming sections in this series.
regards,
Henry Salama, DMD

Nowhere do I see any discussion of impression taking, yet the title is The Master Impression in Restorative Dentistry. What gives?

The Art of Impression Taking: A Comprehensive Review & Revised Clinical Techniques
Impression making is one of the most critical procedures in our daily practice. The quality of our tooth impressions will ultimately define the quality and longevity of our indirect restorations. But dentists still struggle with different materials and techniques trying to get better results while the dental technicians keep complaining about inaccuracies. This presentation summarizes relevant issues related to modern materials and techniques, demonstrating how a proper sequence of therapy can provide us with consistent and predictable results.

"The Rise of the Machines" Creating the Digital Dental Team: Man, Materials, and Machines
The new millennium has brought many advances in dental ceramics. None more important than processing techniques using Cad-Cam technology. These technologies have allowed the use of high strength glass ceramics and solid sintered Zirconia based ceramics that could not be used with conventional techniques. Thus, today it is possible to generate any type of indirect dental restoration with a Cad-Cam device. To date, no system has the ability to layer machined substrates to maximize anterior esthetics, which provides an excellent opportunity to use or combine the best of the human world with the best of the machine world to develop world-class anterior esthetics. This presentation will cover, “THE CURRENT POSSIBILITES FOR THE BOUTIQUE DIGITAL DENTAL LAB and IN-OFFICE DIGITAL DENTAL TEAM”, and the clinical and laboratory steps in the process for different types of restorations, along with esthetic enhancements for the use of these ceramics.

RUBBERDAMology: Tips and Tricks With Isolation
It is well known that all dental work must be under full control by operator. We always try to do our best during root canal treatment, or placing composite restorations, or luting bonded ceramic constructions. We pay a lot of attention to details and procedures, learn all new aspects of operative dentistry, follow all steps and protocols but… some time do waist our invaluable time due to challenging with moisture – saliva, bleeding, tongue, chicks, lips that are often on our way to reach the goal. And this competition is always more stressful then other most important components. Fortunately we have got great assistant for this “dirty” job that gives us stress-free conditions of working, saves our time and health and gives best ergonomics. It is rubberdam. During our lecture we will open all secrets how to use this most helpful system in operative dentistry controlling our main task – treatment.

The Role of Occlusion in Implant Prosthetics Premium Member Content

The Role of Occlusion in Implant Prosthetics
In this presentation Dr. Carlo Poggio delves into the biomechanics and clinical relevance of proper occlusal management in implant dentistry. Combining a thorough review of the literature with clinical dental applications, Dr. Poggio attempts to suggest a rational for designing the occlusion for implant restorations. Topics covered include comparison of occlusal management for teeth and implants. In addition, the importance of controlling the occlusal forces to protect the bone-implant interface from overload and the role of occlusion in peri-implant microbial infection.

Digital Impression Workflow & In-Office Milling Using CS Solutions
This course will describe a new reality in the creation of CAD –CAM generated restorations. Carestream dental has created a system which allows the user to generate ceramic restorations in office or through an internet portal to a dental laboratory. The system will allow dentist to create single unit ceramic restoration, implant abutments, printed models for orthodontics, and in the future precision implant surgical guides. The course will cover the CS3500 camera acquisition unit, its use, and export of images to the Restore software for restoration design to be milled in office, or export the image file to a desired dental milling laboratory. The design phase using the Restore software and the CS 3000 milling unit will be covered in depth so the viewer will be familiar with the CS system so they will be able to fabricate a milled ceramic restoration in either an open format, milling laboratory or a closed format in their office.

The Interdisciplinary Software Platform. The Key For Modern Digital Dentistry
The starting point of a facially driven interdisciplinary dental treatment plan is "The Smile Frame". A few crucial photos and steps will come together to create the ultimate template you need to communicate to your dental team, colleagues, and the patient to ultimately increase case acceptance and create the most aesthetic and functional method of rehabilitation to your patient. We will discuss how this paradigm shift of regular analog dentistry has shifted to this modern digital world and the benefits it provides. The protocol proposed will improve the diagnosis, communication and predictability of esthetic rehabilitation, from simple implant or restorative cases to complex cases, combining perio, ortho, and othognathic surgery. Emphasis will be given to the utilization of digital tools to enhance and facilitate the Dentist/Technician interaction and communication with the patient.

A Technique for Making Impressions of Deeply Placed Implants

A Technique for Making Impressions of Deeply Placed Implants
Precise fit between dental implants and the superstructure is important for the long term success of implants and implant-supported prostheses. One factor which may influence the accuracy of the definitive prosthesis is the stability of the impression coping in polymerized impression material. In some circumstances, an implant must be placed well below the gingival margin, meaning that most of the impression coping will also be situated subgingivally with no contact with the impression material. This can result in reduced stability of the impression coping, allowing it to rotate when fastening the implant analog. This article describes a simple technique that involves the use of a roll of composite resin, tray adhesive, and a small amount of occlusal registration material applied around a transfer coping in a direct implant impression.

Prosthetic Considerations with Periodontal Root Resective Therapy Part 1

Prosthetic Considerations with Periodontal Root Resective Therapy Part 1
Previousiy, the presence of a probable furcation with in a multi rooted tooth was considered an indication for extraction. Loss of attachment in the furcation has traditionally been described as classes I, II , or [ II, depending on the extent of horizontal penetration into the furcation. Tamow and Fletcher subsequently included a vertical component classification with its horizontal counterpart. Interestingly, both of these classifications are based only on periodontal probing depths rather than…
