Complex Case Rehabilitation in Light of New Technologies

Description:
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 the clinical workflow, as for example the possibility of using zirconia and its characteristics as a restorative material. The clinician’s and technician’s professional backgrounds and relationship are critical to achieving better esthetic 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 outmost importance to obtain satisfactory results.

Maurice, thank You as always for the positive feedback and the possibility to share our experience on Xp. As for Your question, the material decision is strictly linked to the new digital possibilities. Having the chance in fact to reproduce exactly the occlusion studied on the patient and done by the technician in wax, monolithic Zirconia is what we decided for this case, leaving only a thin .5 layer only on the vestibular portion to increase the final esthetic outcome. Literature is also telling us that when in the opposing dentition we have natural teeth, monolithic Zirconia shows the less wear along time. See You very soon my friend.

Gentlemen; great work. How do you decide on material selection in these cases? Thanks Maurice

Nice work. Why didn't you use an angled MUA for 22 so screw is more lingual?

How to Give a Painless Palatal Injection
Most patients are extremely anxious about any form of dental treatment however once they are in the chair and they have had the local anaesthetic administered they generally relax into the treatment. One of the reasons for this is the anxiety related to the local anaesthesia. One of the most painful injections is the palatal injections. There area number of devices out there that purport to give a painless palatal injection (PPI). In this short video we demonstrate a technique that shows how to give a PPI without any special instrumentation except time and patience. This is something that is quick to learn and a phenomenal practice builder.

Integrating Orthodontics with Orthognatic Surgery; From Virtual Planning to Clinical Excellence Premium Member Content

Integrating Orthodontics with Orthognatic Surgery; From Virtual Planning to Clinical Excellence
Dentofacial deformities in adults require the combination and skills of the orthodontist and maxillofacial surgeon. In order to achieve all the functional and esthetic goals. In digital dentistry’s days virtual planning of orthodontics and orthognatic surgical corrections has become a valuable tool. Results can be compared to planning both for reevaluation and sharing information with colleagues and our patients. Virtual planning account for more reliable and precise results in our orthognatic surgery. Orthodontic preparation is the gold standard for maximizing the surgical correction. Cases will illustrate our treatment protocol from A to Z for these complex and challenging situations.

The Importance of Facially Driven Smile Design in Modern Comprehensive Dentistry Premium Member Content

The Importance of Facially Driven Smile Design in Modern Comprehensive Dentistry
Modern dentistry is comprehensive, comprehensive dentistry is interdisciplinary, interdisciplinary dentistry is facially driven, Facially Driven dentistry starts with Smile Design. Facially Driven Natural looking Smile Design is the starting point of modern restorative dentistry and the key to improve diagnosis and decision making. The importance of understanding how to consistently create adequate smile designs in harmony with faces is underrated in dentistry and the notion that this topic is under control is overrated. We don’t know what we don’t know. The aim of this lecture is to highlight the challenges, evolution, and the important concepts to become a great smile designer and also how to use technology to streamline the process and deliver naturally beautiful healthy smiles consistently.

The Interdisciplinary Software Platform. The Key For Modern Digital Dentistry Premium Member Content

The Interdisciplinary Software Platform. The Key For Modern Digital Dentistry
The starting point of a facially driven interdisciplinary dental treatment plan is "The Smile Frame". A few crucial photos and steps will come together to create the ultimate template you need to communicate to your dental team, colleagues, and the patient to ultimately increase case acceptance and create the most aesthetic and functional method of rehabilitation to your patient. We will discuss how this paradigm shift of regular analog dentistry has shifted to this modern digital world and the benefits it provides. The protocol proposed will improve the diagnosis, communication and predictability of esthetic rehabilitation, from simple implant or restorative cases to complex cases, combining perio, ortho, and othognathic surgery. Emphasis will be given to the utilization of digital tools to enhance and facilitate the Dentist/Technician interaction and communication with the patient.

Elements and Utilization of Suturing Needles

Elements and Utilization of Suturing Needles
The primary components of every suturing needle include the attachment end, body, and point. Traditional complications caused by threading have been eliminated by the advent of needles that are permanently attached to the suturing material. The suturing procedure is further simplified by the attached and press-fitted end of the needle (swaged) that enables the clinician to draw it through the tissue with less trauma.

A Technique for Surgical Mandibular Exostosis Removal

A Technique for Surgical Mandibular Exostosis Removal
Exostosis, a slow-growing, benign bony outgrowth, is a common clinical finding and not usually an issue with patients. However, when removable prosthetics must sit either adjacent to or over these areas, pressure, food abrasion, ulceration, or limited tongue space can occur. This article describes a surgical technique for exdsion of exostosis through the presentation of a case. An 86-year-old woman had soft-tissue irritation caused by abrasion from food in the buccal posterior right quadrant. The…
