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

Description:
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?

Will incorporate lecture next time I take an impression. Thank you

Excellent presentation. Years of complicated impression talking experience condensed into 30 minutes.

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

Paulo Nunes - (9/28/2013 8:52 AM)

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

"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.

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.

Pure Dental Esthetics – From Titanium to Zirconia Premium Member Content

Pure Dental Esthetics – From Titanium to Zirconia
The replacement of a single tooth with dental implants, especially when the patient has a high smile line, has been an esthetic challenge in implant dentistry. Typically, it requires very careful stages to create the final restoration as natural as possible. When there is loss of soft tissues, carefully made dental-gingival prosthesis becomes an alternative of therapy. For all cases with high smile line, achieving perfection in color and texture of the restoration it's not an easy task. Currently there are some ways to achieve better aesthetic results, including digital scanning of colors. This presentation describes step-by-step the application of a protocol developed in our clinic. Several cases will be discussed. In addition, recent technologies such as zirconium implants are also be discussed.

Choosing Anterior Ceramics – The Concept of Restorative Volume - Part 1 of 2
In this lecture the author presents reviews significant literature and integrates it with clinical experience to select relevant factors that could provide a logical and practical guideline for restorative decisions in anterior teeth.The presented Concept of Restorative Volume is based on structural, optical, and periodontal factors. Each of these factors will influence the short and long-term behavior of restorations in terms of esthetics, biology, and function.

Relationships Between Different Tooth Shapes and Patient’s Periodontal Phenotype

Relationships Between Different Tooth Shapes and Patient’s Periodontal Phenotype
The purpose of the present study was to establish whether any correlation exists between tooth shapes and patient-related factors such as gingival and periodontal characteristics. Clinical measurements, including the width and the height of maxillary central incisor crowns, the apico incisal height of the keratinized mucosa, the buccal gingival thickness (GT), the depth of the sulcus, the bone-sounding depth (BS) and the height of the interproximal maxillary central papilla, were investigated in 50 healthy individuals. These individuals were then divided into three groups based on the shape of their maxillary central incisor crowns: triangular; square; or square-tapered. The results of this study indicate that different tooth shapes are associated with significantly different values for the extent of the KM, its bucco-lingual thickness and the height of the interproximal maxillary central papilla.
