Choosing Anterior Ceramics – The Concept of Restorative Volume - Part 1 of 2

Description:
The choice of the most appropriate restoration for anterior teeth is often a difficult decision. Numerous clinical and technical factors play an important role in selecting the treatment option that best suits the patient and the restorative team. Experienced clinicians have developed decision processes that are often more complex than may seem. Less experienced professionals may find difficulties making treatment decisions because of the widely varied restorative materials available and often numerous similar products offered by different manufacturers. In this lecture the author presents reviews significant literature and integrates it with clinical experience to select relevant factors that could provide a logical and practical guideline for restorative decisions in anterior teeth.The presented Concept of Restorative Volume is based on structural, optical, and periodontal factors. Each of these factors will influence the short and long-term behavior of restorations in terms of esthetics, biology, and function.

Great lecture... enjoy this a lot... really improve my knowledge....

Jorge Cardoso - (1/30/2015 3:21 PM)

Thank you very much Drs Goldstein and Salama. Part 2 will cover the application of the concept in several cases. These are not strict guidelines but a simplified thought process for clinical decisions and their risks both immediate and long term.

Ronald Goldstein - (1/30/2015 12:45 PM)

Very nice presentation...well illustrated and you make some very good points throughout the lecture. Too many times we look at a patient and too quickly make decisions about treatment without considering the various aspects you bring up! Looking forward to part 2.

Maurice Salama - (1/29/2015 3:42 PM)

Excellent Presentation....so many significant points made. Looking forward to Part 2. Thanks Dr. Salama

Aesthetic Design Preservation in Multidisciplinary Therapy
Complex perio-prosthetic cases that require multidisciplinary therapy often result in compromised aesthetics. Traditional treatment planning philosophies, as well as existing interdisciplinary relational patterns, do not promote the achievement of predictable aesthetic results. Implementation of a restorative-driven approach requires the development of an aesthetic blueprint that will serve as a guide through treatment. This article illustrates the clinical techniques and sequence for an outcome-based protocol…

A New View for Restorative Dentistry
The term endoscopy is derived from the Greek language and is literally translated as endon (within) and skopion (to see), hence the meaning, "to see within." Early endoscopists such as Hippocrates in 377 Beused primitive tube-like instruments for endoscopy. Arabs in 900 AD utilized mirrors to illuminate body cavities, and Nitze in the 1870s incorporated lenses with an incandescent platinum wire loop for illumination. All were restricted by the inability to transfer sufficient light distally into…

Relationships Between Different Tooth Shapes and Patient’s Periodontal Phenotype

Relationships Between Different Tooth Shapes and Patient’s Periodontal Phenotype
The purpose of the present study was to establish whether any correlation exists between tooth shapes and patient-related factors such as gingival and periodontal characteristics. Clinical measurements, including the width and the height of maxillary central incisor crowns, the apico incisal height of the keratinized mucosa, the buccal gingival thickness (GT), the depth of the sulcus, the bone-sounding depth (BS) and the height of the interproximal maxillary central papilla, were investigated in 50 healthy individuals. These individuals were then divided into three groups based on the shape of their maxillary central incisor crowns: triangular; square; or square-tapered. The results of this study indicate that different tooth shapes are associated with significantly different values for the extent of the KM, its bucco-lingual thickness and the height of the interproximal maxillary central papilla.
