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?

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

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.

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…
