Two Immediate Temporization Methods Exemplified: Flap vs. Punch Technique in Implant Surgery Two Immediate Temporization Methods Exemplified: Flap vs. Punch Technique in Implant Surgery

Summary:

Protocols and techniques for immediate tooth replacement in the esthetic zone have become more popular and predictable within the past decade. Two different clinical scenarios are presented where immediate temporization of implants placed into healed or augmented ridges is exemplified. The benefits of augmentation prior to implant placement and temporization are that flap elevation is not required; therefore, the blood supply to the labial plate is not compromised, thereby eliminating potential midfacial recession. In addition, the soft tissue subgingival shape of the temporary crown can be non-surgically sculpted at the time of implant placement since the patient is already anesthetized.

Surface Roughness of Restroation Margin Preparations: A Comparative Analysis of Finishing Techniques
This study compared the margin profile and surface roughness created by the tips of four different finishing instruments: fine diamond, dura white stone, tungsten carbide, and ultrasonic diamond-coated tips (UDTs). The aim was to determine which of these instruments produced the smoothest finish and created the most evenly contoured margin characteristics. It was hypothesized that UDTs would produce a rougher dentin surface than a fine diamond bur, that a tungsten carbide bur would provide a smoother finish than a fine diamond, and that the dura white stone would produce an intermediate finish.

Smile Analysis - The Photoshop Smile Design Technique: Part 1
Computer design software will become the main communication technology between dentists and ceramists and a useful tool for showing patients the possibilities for enhancing their smiles. By understanding the elements of esthetics and learning how to incorporate technology applications into clinical dentistry, clinicians can predictably plan smile design cases and communicate anticipated results to patients and ceramists alike. This article, the first in a two-part series, introduces elements of smile design and reviews some timeless concepts. It discusses new, step-by step techniques for incorporating digital technology into the smile design process that can be accomplished in approximately three to four minutes.

Combining Implant Replacement with Esthetic Restorative Dentistry Premium Member Content

Combining Implant Replacement with Esthetic Restorative Dentistry
Achieving predictable anterior implant esthetics is often a challenge for clinicians. The creation of anterior implant restorations with harmonious gingival contour that emulate nature is a fusion of science and art. Understanding the biologic and physiologic limitations of the soft and hard tissue along with proper implant positioning facilitates predictability in both simple and complex esthetic situations. This presentation focuses on current implant treatment philosophies and methodologies for the replacement of missing or failing teeth in the esthetic zone. Equal emphasis is placed on the diagnosis and treatment planning, current protocols for optimal 3D implant positioning, periodontal plastic procedures, bone grafting maneuvers, and prosthetic management for optimal anterior implant esthetics.

Biofunctional Dynamic Occlusion
Overall, this lecture will create an understanding and relationship between the cervical spine and mandibular movements and the trilogy between Joints, Muscles and Occlusion. Most of the patients that we treat for dysfunction, were compromised during the early stages of growth and development. Overtime these created accommodations and compensations in the system induced by the physiology of the airway. After a proper structural, functional analysis, and diagnostic, phase II offers the alternative of orthopedic facial development where we can restructure the architecture of the face and the airway.
