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.

An Expression of Your Vision: High-Quality Photography

An Expression of Your Vision: High-Quality Photography
Digital photography is common in many of today’s dental practices, and high-quality dental images are paramount for laboratory communication and marketing dentistry. The purpose of this article is to define what a high-quality dental image is, and to give an overview of what these images are used for. In this article I will briefly go over all the steps involved in making these images and review in detail the equipment, camera settings, techniques, and post-production workflow using Adobe Photoshop Lightroom.

Digital Radiography: Asset for the Hygienist

Digital Radiography: Asset for the Hygienist
The hygiene practitioner plays an integral role in the evaluation of the cosmetic, as well as the functional, needs of the patient. Since time is a valuable commodity for both patients and the dental team, it is imperative that the armamentarium available assists in obtaining an accurate diagnosis in the timeliest fashion. One of these tools—digital radiography—is changing the face of patient care, contributing to safer, faster, and more effective means of dental treatment. The incorporation of…

Digital Restorative Technologies, Implants, Aesthetics and Occlusion
CAD/CAM technology has the advantage of reduced clinical chair-time and reduced laboratory costs. The accuracy of these techniques has improved to the point where they are now comparable to conventional techniques. This presentation will review the current technology which allows the fabrication of an implant abutments through streamlined digital fabrication, that maximizes aesthetics and minimizes time and errors. In addition, this impression does not require the removal of the healing abutment. The fabrication of ceramic full coverage restorations and veneers, with an in-office technique, will also be demonstrated. Occlusion principles will be discussed as they relate to new materials and their application in private practice.

A Complete 3D Strategy to Esthetic Cross Arch Restorations: Guide Surgery & Soft Tissue Interface Management with CAD-CAM Restorations
I will highlight the benefits achievable through the use of guided planning, guided laboratory procedures and guided surgeries, while maintaining the fundamental principles of osseointegration. My ten years of scientifically proven experience and clinical follow-up in guided surgery and CAD/CAM biomimetic restorations will be shared with the audience to support clinical protocols as well as practical tips and tricks with case studies demonstrating each clinical scenario. New surgical and prosthetic improvements and novel proof-of-concept techniques to enhance the natural soft tissue integration will be presented. Viewers will also broaden their knowledge of hard and soft tissue surgical management through the guided surgery, discovering the latest implant designs and prosthetic interfaces designed to achieve an ideal soft tissue seal and bone level over time.
