DSD & Architecture of the Full Arch Patient; From Scan to Plan to Delivery

DSD & Architecture of the Full Arch Patient; From Scan to Plan to Delivery
This presentation will take the audience step by step through the entire full arch process from consult to evaluation to records and team interaction to final delivery. The importance of engaging our patients through DSD (Digital Smile Design) to gain their acceptance of our vision prior to the planning of our cases with the implant surgeon and lab tech will be featured. The process of prosthetic conversion on the day of surgery and the planning of bone reduction and implant positioning will be highlighted. The emotional side of this process from the patient's perspective will allow us a peek into the magnitude of our responsibility.

Surgical Management of the Full Arch Patient; Do's & Don'ts

Surgical Management of the Full Arch Patient; Do's & Don'ts
The responsibility of the surgeon is even more critical when performing a Full Arch Implant treatment. A thorough review of the anatomy is critical prior to the day of surgery to precisely assess the quality and quantity of bone/soft tissues as well as the location of critical anatomical landmarks such as the mandibular nerve, mental nerve, mylohyoid concavity, genial tubercles, floor of the nose, sinus floor, nasopalatine canal, greater palantine canal and pterygoid, zygomatic buttress. A thorough medical review is also a key element to avoid bleeding issues and a poor healing outcome.

"Real World Cosmetic Dentistry", Design, Preparation, Completion, & Patient Impact

"Real World Cosmetic Dentistry", Design, Preparation, Completion, & Patient Impact
The clinician's role in cosmetic dentistry is to evaluate the patient dentally, facially & emotionally. The design of the smile creates the path and ideal communication between the doctor, patient and lab technician. It is this process that allows for precision in preparation of the teeth and staging the smile within the lip perimeter and face. Digital scanning and 3D software allows us to frame the smile and to communicate our design to the mouth. Minimally invasive procedures from tooth prep to gingivectomy to frame the tooth shapes and gingival margin to the lipline will be discussed. Provisionals allow us to test our design prior to lab processing the veneers and crowns for final insertion. This multimedia presentation will highlight these stages of design and preparation as well as the vitally important process of patient management and expectations. Video and high quality photos as well as step by step process and tips will be provided.

Three-Dimensional (3D) Facially Driven Workflow for Anterior Ridge Defect Evaluation: A Treatment Concept

Three-Dimensional (3D) Facially Driven Workflow for Anterior Ridge Defect Evaluation: A Treatment Concept
The esthetic rehabilitation of anterior ridge defects and achieving patient satisfaction have become major clinical challenges for dentists and technicians. Poor diagnosis and treatment planning are frequently associated with multiple surgical procedures that fail to meet patient expectations. The loss of hard and soft tissues in anterior ridges results in an esthetically compromised zone that affects the rehabilitation prognosis. The presence of interdental papilla and papillary configuration play a decisive role in patient satisfaction.

CAD/CAM Solutions for Minimally Invasive All-Ceramic Rehabilitation of Extended Erosive Lesions

CAD/CAM Solutions for Minimally Invasive All-Ceramic Rehabilitation of Extended Erosive Lesions
Dental erosion is a global health problem that can lead to significant functional and esthetic impairments of the affected patients. Treatment of sever cases with augmented loss of the vertical dimension of occlusion (VDO) represents a challenge for both the dental team and the patient. CAD/CAM technology was used in the presented case to analyze the inter-occlusal space. The case report documents a practical, digital approach and discusses the advantages related to treatment time, ease of treatment, and predictability.

Surface Roughness of Restroation Margin Preparations: A Comparative Analysis of Finishing Techniques

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.

Enhancing Esthetics with a Fixed Prosthesis Utilizing an Innovative Pontic Design and Periodontal Plastic Surgery

Enhancing Esthetics with a Fixed Prosthesis Utilizing an Innovative Pontic Design and Periodontal Plastic Surgery
During the past two decades, significant advancements with the integration of periodontal plastic surgery into esthetic restorative dental procedures have received increased attention. While ovate pontics have traditionally been used as a restorative design following augmentation procedures to enhance esthetics, an alternate E-pontic design aims to predictably support and maintain the gingival architecture between a single missing anterior tooth adjacent to a natural tooth or an implant that is in harmony with the lip line and face. In addition, the E-pontic design promotes the gingival facial tissue to coronally migrate over the pontic, creating a gingival sulcus. This article describes an innovative new technique and a pontic design that predictably will develop, support, and maintain the gingival architecture to provide a long-term esthetic and functional outcome.

Surgical Management of Third Molars

Surgical Management of Third Molars
Removal of third molars, commonly known as wisdom teeth, continue to be prevalent in our society. Indications for removal vary from pericoronal infections to orthodontic treatment. Several factors such as age, position of the tooth and affected jaw can dictate the surgical technique. Proper diagnosis and management will be covered at length as well as impaction classification systems, value of imaging, instrumentation and surgical approaches. Post operative management and methods to recognize, avoid and treat potential complications will also be discussed.
