Mastering Anterior Composites: 3D Layering Technique

Description:
Traumatic dental injury especially in childhood is a common problem. It occurs usually around 8-12 years old, in a male to female ratio of 2:1 / 3: 1 and affects 70% maxillary central incisors. Coronal fracture of enamel and dentin without pulp involvement is the frequent situation a restorative dentist has to manage, utilizing direct adhesive procedures. Successful shade matching in composite restorations is considered as one of the most difficult task to accomplish. It is based on a subjective comparison between a shade tab and the natural tooth and as direct composite restorations are realized within one single appointment, no "try-in" is possible. Therefore the search for a reliable shade matching procedure coupled with a predictable layering technique is still going on. The aim of this presentation is to present an individual three-dimensional layering technique with contemporary composites. This novel procedure is indicated in moderate to extensive crown fractures and is considered predictable after eliminating the parameter of thickness while layering restorative materials.

Esthetic and Functional Rehabilitation: A Case Report
Most people want to look beautiful. The ability to express feelings is fundamental to the quality of life, but expressing emotions is impossible without the freedom to smile. A patient with an ill-fitting removable denture and a fixed, porcelain-fused-to-metal bridge sought care to improve her smile. This fixed bridge was removed and direct provisional restorations placed, followed by crown-lengthening surgery and implant placement, waiting 10 months for the patient to heal. We waited one month to check occlusal stability and patient satisfaction and then made the final precision impressions and master casts. We cemented the final restorations; lithium disilicate allowed the creation of an esthetic result without sacrificing strength with use of both full-anatomy and layered techniques. Dental implants make it possible to have non-removable teeth that can be integrated esthetically and functionally, allowing the recreation of tooth color, form, and structure to reestablish a pat

Indications of In-Office Treatments: Topical Fluoride, Varnish, Foam and Gels Premium Member Content

Indications of In-Office Treatments: Topical Fluoride, Varnish, Foam and Gels
A study conducted in the 1990s, demonstrated a steady rate of decline of instances of coronal caries through the 1980s. This decline was attributed to an increase in oral health education regarding diet, oral hygiene and an increased awareness about the benefits of applying fluoride-containing topical treatments such as dental sealants varnishes, foams, or gels to the teeth of individuals of all ages in moderate-to-high risk groups for caries. This presentation reviews the history, efficacy, and indications. You will learn the history of all varnishes, differences in fluoride foams and gels as well as which fluorides work best for different patients and practices.

The Harmony of Pink and White

The Harmony of Pink and White
Advances in technology have created many options in dental therapy. Implant therapy is becoming widely used to improve patients' oral function and make them satisfied. Clinicians are discovering the anatomical relationship of implant and soft tissue with the limitations of implant therapy. On the other hand, patients are demanding more beautiful smiles. Therefore, it is necessary to consider the harmony of pink and white in esthetic and functional restorative therapy.
