Guided Preparations and the Future of Minimally Invasive Dentistry
An introduction to describe the use of digitally designed, 3D-printed guides to prepare teeth. This state of the arts technology allows dentists to efficiently prepare teeth and deliver the final restoration in one visit. The objective of this presentation is to provide the audience an introduction to with the advancement of 3D-printing in dentistry and it’s use as it pertains to restorative options. With computer aided procedures we can now digitally design and prepare 3D-printed guides to precisely prepare teeth and deliver the final restoration without the need for a temporary.

Enhancing Esthetics with a Fixed Prosthesis Utilizing an Innovative Pontic Design and Periodontal Plastic Surgery Premium Member Content

Enhancing Esthetics with a Fixed Prosthesis Utilizing an Innovative Pontic Design and Periodontal Plastic Surgery
This video addresses how to reestablish or maintain papilla height and the facial gingival tissue between a single or multiple missing teeth adjacent to a natural tooth or an implant by using an innovative pontic design termed the E-pontic. The anatomical shape of the E-pontic will predictably support and maintain the facial gingival margin and interdental papillae over an acceptable alveolar ridge. The E-pontic design fulfills the prerequisites for maintaining a healthy periodontium and its ability to achieve a predictable long-term esthetic and functional result. The emergence profile of this pontic design that is similar to that of a natural tooth ensures that no palatal gap forms which could potentially cause phonetic problems. Trapping of food particles does not occur because of its unique adaptive design to the pontic recipient site.

Color in Esthetics: The Science Behind Beauty
This presentation will be very different from programs in color matching, communication and reproduction of natural teeth that you may have attended in the past. The didactic part will emphasize the nature, principles and fundamentals of color, and tools that are essential to master a plan for successful color matching in both office and dental laboratory, together with step-by-step instructions. Examples and practical suggestions will be provided, including the latest changes recommended by the presenter. Dental Color Matcher, a color education and training program for esthetic dentistry authored by the presenter and used by dental professionals and students in 100+ countries, will be demonstrated.

Enhancing Esthetics with a Fixed Prosthesis Utilizing an Innovative Pontic Design and Periodontal Plastic Surgery
During the past two decades, significant advancements with the integration of periodontal plastic surgery into esthetic restorative dental procedures have received increased attention. While ovate pontics have traditionally been used as a restorative design following augmentation procedures to enhance esthetics, an alternate E-pontic design aims to predictably support and maintain the gingival architecture between a single missing anterior tooth adjacent to a natural tooth or an implant that is in harmony with the lip line and face. In addition, the E-pontic design promotes the gingival facial tissue to coronally migrate over the pontic, creating a gingival sulcus. This article describes an innovative new technique and a pontic design that predictably will develop, support, and maintain the gingival architecture to provide a long-term esthetic and functional outcome.

Prosthetic Gingival Reconstruction in a Fixed Partial Restoration - Part 1: Introduction to Artificial Gingiva as an Alternative Therapy
The Class III defect environment entails a vertical and horizontal deficiency in the endentulous ridge. Often, bone and soft tissue surgical procedures fall short of achieving a natural esthetic result. Alternative surgical and restorative protocols for these types of prosthetic gingival restorations are presented in this three-part series, which highlights the diagnostic and treatment aspects as well as the lab and maintenance challenges involved.
