OCCLUSION: Can We Possibly Simplify It? - Part 1
Over the past 20 years, many of us have been confused, frustrated, unsure and crazy about ... “How do I get my occlusion philosophy on the right path?” At NYU FMR we have developed tried and true techniques that are guaranteed to make you understand occlusion, contact points and mandibular movement that makes sense, is easy to diagnose and systematically treat with success. In addition being comfortable Restoring OVD, understanding TMJ joint position and treating the worn dentition. Using our SOT methods and Level 1-10 Occlusion Classification we can show you how to become successful in the “Occlusion” of your patients.

The Aesthetic Cad/Cam Interface Premium Member Content

The Aesthetic Cad/Cam Interface
Computer aided design and computer aided manufacture has been involved in Dentistry for many years. Since the 1980’s we have been trying to produce in-surgery porcelain restorations with considerable variation in success. Common criticisms of this technique have been poor fits, poor aesthetics and poor occlusal control. Dr Julian Caplan has been involved in developing techniques utilizing this constantly changing technology to overcome these short falls. He has now reached a position where he is able to create beautiful, well fitting multiple restorations that allow proper functional control and he achieves this in a single day. This lecture will concentrate on Cerec technology and how he has utilized this over the last 10 years to producing highly aesthetic smile makeovers in a day.

The Smile Design Revolution - Management, Communication and Implementation
Treatment planning a full mouth rehabilitation is amazingly challenging. So many options and steps must be coordinated and controlled to achieve a successful outcome. Developing the Smile Design is just the starting point. Carefully integrating this design to function is the key. This presentation will show how this process is a complex brainstorm that needs to be guided by logical and rational steps to achieve consistent and predictable solutions.

Oral Soft Tissue Laser Ablative and Coagulative Efficiencies Spectra

Oral Soft Tissue Laser Ablative and Coagulative Efficiencies Spectra
The key to the success of soft tissue lasers is their ability to cut and coagulate the soft tissue at the same time. Present work is aimed to derive the wavelength-dependent differences in photo-thermal ablation and coagulation efficiencies for oral soft tissue pulsed dental Near-IR Diode, Mid-IR Erbium and IR CO2 lasers. Even though the soft tissue photothermal ablation has been extensively studied, there remains a discrepancy between (a) the widely proliferated notion about efficient Near-IR 800-1,100 nm laser ablation of the oral soft tissue, and (b) studies reporting the inefficient soft tissue Near-IR absorption/ablation. Indeed, the notions about “the key to the usefulness of the Nd:YAG is that this wavelength is highly absorbed in oral soft tissue”, and “all currently available dental laser instruments and their emission wavelengths have indications for use for incising, excising... oral soft tissue surgery”, contradict an observation illustrated here...
