"The Rise of the Machines" Creating the Digital Dental Team: Man, Materials, and Machines

Description:
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.

As always, Dr. McLaren knocks it out of the park with his knowledge and skill. I'd love to here a follow-up lecture on his bonding technique and which cements and bonding agents he uses. Great presentation. Dr. Keith Reber

Thank you for this excellent course. Are your feldspathic porcelain baked on platinum foils or on refractory cast and dies?

The Digital Workflow in a Modern Clinical Practice
In prosthetic rehabilitations, we use for many years codified and widely described protocols in literature, with results that meet our expectations and well above those of our patients. It is true that the advent of new technologies has enabled us to use new material and new equipment that facilitate the production of an adaptation and an accuracy that has, up to now, been difficult to obtain. Today, intraoral 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.

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.

Occlusion: What Else? Premium Member Content

Occlusion: What Else?
Occlusion-Confusion, most of the dentist feel this way. Occlusion is one of the most important part of dentistry but also the most controversy. The balance and the restore of function of the stomatognathic system is often an everyday challenge during most dental treatments. Therefore it is essential to register and maintain the orthopedic stability of the stomatognathic system during the treatment and determine the musculoskeletal stable position during the dental procedures. In this lecture some common clinical problems that the dentist often has to deal with in the everyday practice will be presented and the treatment sequence to maintain the stomatognathic system stability will be presented.

The Hidden Value of Digital Radiography for Caries Detection Premium Member Content

The Hidden Value of Digital Radiography for Caries Detection
The webinar will cover the basic features of Logicon and how it works, our recommended protocol for using it, and its role in the treatment plan for the version (4.0) presently on the market, where the dentist selects the surfaces to analyze and initiates the analysis. The webinar will also describe a new version (5.0) presently under FDA review that raises digital caries detection to a new level where all the surfaces in a bitewing radiograph are analyzed automatically at one time to give the dentist (and patient) a more global view of the state of their teeth.

Introducing Choukroun’s Platelet Rich Fibrin (PRF) to the Reconstructive Surgery Milieu

Introducing Choukroun’s Platelet Rich Fibrin (PRF) to the Reconstructive Surgery Milieu
Platelet-rich fibrin (PRF), developed in France by Choukroun et al (2001), is a second generation platelet concentrate widely used to accelerate soft and hard tissue healing. Its advantages over the better known platelet-rich plasma (PRP) include ease of preparation/application, minimal expense, and lack of biochemical modification (no bovine thrombin or anticoagulant is required). PRF is a strictly autologous fibrin matrix containing a large quantity of platelet and leukocyte cytokines. This article serves as an introduction to the PRF “concept” and its potential clinical applications.

Using Air-Abrasive Technology to Diagnose

Using Air-Abrasive Technology to Diagnose
National Institute of Dental Research surveys indicate that the Incidence of pit and fissure caries constitutes a higher proportion of the total caries incidence among U.S. teens and children than in the past. Airabrasive technology may provide a more conservative alternative in the diagnosis and treatment of pit and fissure caries than traditional techniques using handpieces. The authors review characteristics of pit and fissure lesions and discuss methods for diagnosing and treating these lesions…
