The Role of Digital Technologies and Materials for Full Arch Implant Reconstruction

Description:
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. Today, intra-oral mapping technology is one of the most exciting new areas in dentistry since three-dimensional scanning of the mouth is required in a large number of procedures such as prosthodontics, implant dentistry and orthodontics. All the existing intra-oral scanners are trying to face the limitations and the disadvantages of the traditional impression procedure maintaining a high accuracy level in order to be used as an efficacious alternative to the conventional impression technique. 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.

Maurice, You can work with the DSD virtual lab, creating digitally the Mock up starting from the 2d DSD, switching it in 3D using a specific software such as Nemotech for example. With the same software You can combine then the CBCT data to analyze the best implant position following the anatomic scenario and obviously guided by the prosthetic project based on the mock up. If You want to guide the surgery You can ask the DSD Virtual Lab to fabricate the surgical guide as well.

Great job my dear friends, how do you utilize digital mock-ups to assist in planning the implants when remaining teeth are not in best position? Thanks Maurice

Restorative vs. Orthodontic Therapy; Alternative Management and Lab-Dentist Communication
Patients often refuse orthodontic realignment and correction due to the length of treatment required even if it may be the best or most conservative therapy. In same cases, patients will get anxious about having metal or even invisible ceramic braces in their mouth for even a short period of time. On other hand, cosmetic dentistry is able to satisfy the patients with the same needs by using porcelain-veneers as an alternative to orthodontics treatment. This presentation describes a patient who has rejected orthodontic therapy but continues to seek a improved cosmetic result. Porcelain veneers and crowns were an appropriate alternative in this case. Follow-ups of treatment display a successful cosmetic and functional result.

Stem Cells in Dentistry Premium Member Content

Stem Cells in Dentistry
Stem cells are undifferentiated cells, capable of renewing themselves, with the capacity to produce different cell types to regenerate missing tissues and treat diseases. Oral facial tissues have been identified as a source and therapeutic target for stem cells with clinical interest in dentistry. In this brief presentation, Dr Ana Paz presents stem cells and outlines the clinical applications of stem cells in dentistry. Although more clinical research in this topic is still needed, Dr Ana Paz believes that the main features of stem cells in the future of dentistry should be understood by clinicians.

OCCLUSION: Can We Possibly Simplify It?
Over the past 20 years, many of us have been confused, frustrated, unsure and crazy about ... “How do I get my occlusion philosophy on the right path?” At NYU FMR we have developed tried and true techniques that are guaranteed to make you understand occlusion, contact points and mandibular movement that makes sense, is easy to diagnose and systematically treat with success. In addition being comfortable Restoring OVD, understanding TMJ joint position and treating the worn dentition. Using our SOT methods and Level 1-10 Occlusion Classification we can show you how to become successful in the “Occlusion” of your patients.

Managing Technology for Best Outcomes and Productivity
Digital technology provides tools to improve planning, clinical execution, prosthetic design, manufacturing, maintenance, and cost of care. Dental professionals need to understand the value of individual technologies as well as the benefit derived from linking them together. During this presentation, a business model and clinical cases will be used to illustrate how a number of digital technologies can impact outcomes and productivity.

3-D Smile Designing with a Functional Touch: The Dental GPS Way
In this esthetic driven era, the responsibility of delivering something that is functionally and esthetically acceptable is of utmost importance. Today , we have something called Dental GPS which is a software that is available both in a clinician version and lab version. It is not only able to help us with the simulation of the proposed results in less than 5 minutes but also able to help us print the diagnostic M lines to help us mount the casts (using a digital facebow) for 2D wax ups and / or 3D virtual wax ups for 3D printed models. This presentation will highlight the usage, simplicity and precision of planning and execution using the 3D smile design software.

Effectiveness of a Super-Pulsed CO2 Laser For Removal of Biofilm From Three Different Types of Implant Surfaces: An In Vitro Study
As dental implants become a routine part of dental practice, so too will the prevalence of peri-implant diseases. Inherent to the treatment of peri-implant disease is the removal of microbial biofilms from the implant surface. Currently, there is no standardized protocol for application of any treatment modality directed at implant surface decontamination. In this in vitro study, we report on the effectiveness of a super-pulsed CO2 laser, delivering an average fluence of 6.3 to 113 J/cm2, to remove biofilm from three different types of implant surface topographies. Biofilms ranged in thickness from 5 to 15 μm. An average fluence of 19 J/cm2 was sufficient to achieve 100% ablation of the biofilm on hydrophilic sandblasted and acidetched surface specimens (SA). However, to achieve 100% ablation of biofilm on HA and highly crystalline, phosphate enriched titanium oxide (PTO) surfaced implants required an average fluence of 38 J/cm2.
