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

Combining Implant Replacement with Esthetic Restorative Dentistry Premium Member Content

Combining Implant Replacement with Esthetic Restorative Dentistry
Achieving predictable anterior implant esthetics is often a challenge for clinicians. The creation of anterior implant restorations with harmonious gingival contour that emulate nature is a fusion of science and art. Understanding the biologic and physiologic limitations of the soft and hard tissue along with proper implant positioning facilitates predictability in both simple and complex esthetic situations. This presentation focuses on current implant treatment philosophies and methodologies for the replacement of missing or failing teeth in the esthetic zone. Equal emphasis is placed on the diagnosis and treatment planning, current protocols for optimal 3D implant positioning, periodontal plastic procedures, bone grafting maneuvers, and prosthetic management for optimal anterior implant esthetics.

The Implant Supra-Crestal Complex: Building the Foundation for Long-Term Stable Results in Implant Therapy - Part 2 of 2
The lecture reveals recent evidence to identify the impact of design features on both short-term clinical outcomes, as well as on the long-term health of the peri-implant bone and soft tissues. Prosthetic-driven implant placement is the prerequisite for the proper design of the ISC, which in turn can indirectly influence the structure and dimensions of the peri-implant soft tissues. Design features of the implant-prosthesis abutment complex such as the Emergence Profile (EP), Emergence Angle (EA) and Cervical Margin (CM), as well as the design of the implant-abutment and abutment prosthesis junctions and their location in relation to the tissues of the ISC can have significant impact in the maintenance of stable and healthy peri-implant tissues in the long term.

Due in part to the positive tissue response to metal-ceramic crowns fabricated with Captek™ substructures, clinicians can now provide an aesthetic restoration with healthy supporting periodontium for their patients. All indirect restorations, however, depend on an accurate impression of the preparation and proper tissue management throughout provisionalization. Even after careful tooth preparation, the restorative site often fills with blood, intracrevicular and intraoral fluids, and the delicate…
