Periodontal-Prosthesis in Modern Dentistry – Part 2 of 2
Clinicians must be aware of patient expectations when planning dental treatment. When full mouth reconstruction is planned, it is very important to satisfy such expectations in order to provide successful treatment. Patients are often concerned about the cost and duration of treatment, and the pain, esthetics, comfort, and function after treatment. However, we cannot assure longevity unless the treatment has a scientific basis.
Digital Smile Design and 3D Printing of Treatment Provisionals in Modern Dental Practice
The DSD Concept 2D is the portal to Digital Dentistry and Digital Workflow. Utilizing Facial Aesthetics as a starting point and ending with a functional, aesthetic and emotionally fulfilling Smile designed with Natural Algorithms via Keynote and translated via a DSD Planning Center into a 3D printed Wax-Up, or Full Arch Implant Guides and Conversion Smile. DSD protocol is special in that it fosters True “Team Synergy” between the Restorative Dentist to Laboratory and Specialist. This results in more predictable treatment outcomes from simple Smile Cases to Full Mouth Rehabilitations involving natural teeth to dental implants. Finally, by learning DSD’s unique connection to the Emotional component of Dentistry, you will gain skills on how to Consult, Present, and Gain High Levels of Case Acceptance.
Predictable Implant Aesthetics Utilizing A Custom Fabricated Provisional Abutment & Impression Coping
Mastering the art of predictable implant aesthetics can be challenging. One of the most stressful areas for most dentists is the process of creating a beautiful provisional that will guide tissue and predictably communicate the aesthetic outcome for the final restoration in the aesthetic zone. Combining the use of a custom fabricated provisional abutment, provisional restoration and a custom fabricated impression coping many of the aesthetics challenges can be addressed. This information can then be communicated to the laboratory to ensure the most predictable aesthetic outcome possible. This program is designed to simplify and streamline the entire process of implant provisionalization and impression. This program will provide a systematic, step by step approach to tissue management, provisionalization and impression of implant cases.
Modern Crown Lengthening: Classification and Clinical Application
Crown lengthening procedures are indicated to provide adequate tooth structure in case of subgingival tooth fracture or caries, uneven gingival level, un-esthetic short crowns due to the tooth wear, inadequate axial height, altered passive eruption ,forced eruption of a single or multiple teeth and finally in case of gingival smile.
The treatment modality for esthetic crown lengthening procedure should be based on detail diagnosis in each case because of the multifactorial etiology and because of the type of therapy selected by the clinician, will have a direct implication for the esthetic result.
Ceramic Material Selection for Tooth and Implant Supported Restorations: A Clinical Approach
This presentation will review currently available ceramic materials and discuss the clinical parameters and thought process used to chose a particular material for anterior and posterior tooth and implant supported restorations.
Restoring the Pink and White Esthetics. Clinical Case Presentation
Every esthetic case is a challenge. As clinicians we need to understand and combine different treatment modalities and materials to achieve outstanding esthetic and functional results. This clinical case will demonstrate the importance of the little details, and how they influence the final result. We’ll go step by step thought the analyze, planning surgical and prosthetic procedures with focus on the key points that I find to be crucial.
Minimally Invasive Protocols for Total Esthetic Reconstructions
One of the biggest challenges that we dentists have are those cases that require a multidisciplinary approach which traditionally were managed using invasive and long term treatments. Nowadays, and depending on the case, the contemporary dentist can offer minimally invasive treatments which allow us to modify the shape of the hard and soft tissues.
The combination of surgical lip repositioning with periodontal plastic surgery yields highly effective results in the treatment of gummy smiles. During patient examination it is important to establish the etiology responsible for the excessive gingival display. The combined technique can be considered as an alternative option to more invasive procedures. The prognosis is acceptable and the patient realizes that the esthetic problem has been minimized.
Correction of Tooth Defects and Discolored Teeth Using Direct Composite Resin
For over 50 years dentists have been making instant esthetic transformations using direct composite resin. That technology has been enhanced by the latest nano composite materials. Although the past decade has seen greater use of ceramic materials in esthetic dentistry, direct bonding with these new composites is still a highly valuable procedure. This video will deal with correction of severe tooth discoloration using nano composites. Immediate composite resin bonding can act as either the ideal correction or as an extended trial smile so patients can live with their new smile as long as necessary.
Innovative Sequencing for Interdisciplinary Aesthetic Treatment
Smile enhancement therapy has become an important facet of the everyday aesthetic practice. Aesthetic evaluation utilizing facial aesthetic design to diagnose tooth position demands effective communication between the periodontal-restorative team.
This presentation will review innovative sequencing techniques for interdisciplinary cases which require aesthetic crown lengthening for the treatment of excessive gingival display, and for gingival augmentation for root coverage, and the correction of poor gingival quality. Immediate implant placement with immediate non–loaded provisional fabrication will also be reviewed.
Adhesive Dentistry: From Direct to Indirect Restorations
Restorative dentistry has changed in recent years. A good esthetic and functional rehabilitation starts from the proper clinical evaluation of the patient and of his problems, planning all the clinical and laboratory procedures in order to reduce the possibility of performing a subpar restoration.
It is very important to have a synergy between the clinician, the dental technician and the patient and to make the right use of the protocols and a flow chart to address all patient needs. The goal is to achieve the right balance between biology, esthetic and function by applying a minimally invasive approach.
Restorative Material Selection in Modern Prosthetics
The scope of restorative dentistry is changing at a rapid pace. Technological evolutions in optical scanning, 3D printing, milling and new age materials is in a revolution versus old world concepts. What to choose, why and then when makes the dental team and lab a critical part of the material selection team. What materials are the strongest, most durable and esthetic are key elements in this new world. This presentation will provide you an up to date review of the current materials available and the scientific literature to support specific guidelines as to the selection process. Zirconium, Lithium Disilicates, alumina etc. will be discussed as well as the correct cementation materials with these new products.
At-Home Bleaching: A 25-Year Retrospective
The concept of at-home bleaching self-administered by the patient and supervised by the dentist became widely known in the profession about 25 years. At the time, little was known about bleaching except that application of a peroxide-based gel to the teeth could substantially lighten them in 4-6 weeks. Since then, a large volume of laboratory and clinical research have greatly expanded and enhanced our understanding of the process. This presentation provides a brief summary of what we have learned over the last 25 years, including how bleaching works and how long it lasts, safety issues, side effects such as tooth sensitivity, effects on teeth and materials, extended uses for bleaching, and over-the-counter options.
Single Dark Teeth Bleaching, Externally and Internally
Single dark teeth have some new bleaching options and materials, and the treatment options vary whether vital or non-vital. Restorative indications for anterior endodontically-treated teeth have changed, prompting a new interest in bleaching, with new techniques needed for maximum esthetics. Esthetic evaluations, bonding insights, and special tray fabrication designs will be explained, as well as when combination techniques are best utilized.
