The Art of Impression Taking: A Comprehensive Review & Revised Clinical Techniques

Impression making is one of the most critical procedures in our daily practice. The quality of our tooth impressions will ultimately define the quality and longevity of our indirect restorations. But dentists still struggle with different materials and techniques trying to get better results while the dental technicians keep complaining about inaccuracies. This presentation summarizes relevant issues related to modern materials and techniques, demonstrating how a proper sequence of therapy can provide us with consistent and predictable results.

VEry nice overview of impressions. Dr. Jasper Ainslie, in my opinion the facebow transfer is very difficult to do properly, partly why i use arcus digma, but Dr Calamita showed just the right way to take facebow registrate - have the patient stand up and tighten the screws then. I even take an facial picture with retracted cheeks just to double check my facebow registrate after mounting the maxilla but i did not want to go off on a tangent, this topic could be quite long about facebows. Thank you for sharing Dr. Calamita

Excellent! Thank you.

Jasper Ainslie - (10/4/2013 12:01 PM)

So incorporated lecture big case walks in every thing went smoothly, but face bow. I don't trust my face bows. I noticed in video that patient bites down on Cotten rolls when you guys were taking FB? When patient bites are the biting in a forward position not seating posterior teeth so Cotten seats back of face bow arm? I want to feel more confident about the face bow technique any pointers?

Wonderful presentation. Are you using a putty or a heavy body wash material on your full arch upper impression?

One of the most educational and clinical update lecture to improve and refresh our daily practice ,especially highlitening the thecniques and their correct indications above the choice of the impression material , which in our days almost all present very good standard qualities . Thank you so much for sharing all this with us and best regards from Portugal . Paulo Nunes

Complex Case Rehabilitation in Light of New Technologies
This case report describes a step-by-step full arch restoration (upper and lower), rehabilitated utilizing new technologies in dentistry. CAD/CAM technology has changed not only the technician's working process, but also the clinician's, offering new benefits to clinical workflow.For example the possibility of using zirconia and its characteristics as a restorative material. The clinician's and technician's professional backgrounds and relationships are critical to achieving optimal aesthetic and functional results; while prosthetic success depends upon an in-depth knowledge of the materials and their properties and on carefully performed clinical procedures, which are still of utmost importance to obtain satisfactory results.

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.

Chu's Aesthetic Gauges: Proportion
The Proportion Gauge has the T-bar tip on one end and an In-line tip on the opposite end. The T-bar tip is used on teeth with normal alignment and the In-line tip is used for crooked or crowded teeth where the horizontal arm of the T-bar is obstructed by the rotated teeth. The instrument is used to measure the width and length of maxillary anterior teeth. The tip measurements have a predetermined ratio of about 78% (based on the study results on the average width, length ratio of the maxillary anterior…
