Questions & Comments
Kirk Rathburn - (12/30/2017 9:41 AM)

What if the patient can't tolerate the MAD you have constructed? His financial expenditure has been significant and the device will end up in a vanity drawer. I might suggest a proof in concept approach utilizing a temporary device that the patient actually uses at home and an actual titration process is carried out. Great Lakes Orthodontics offers an inexpensive temporary device called a" My Tap" that allows for titration of VDO and mandibular advancement. Once the patient reports they are comfortable with the device and the symptoms have improved a final MAD can be fabricated, thus carrying thru with the proof in concept approach. With much admiration, Kirk R. Rathburn DDS

Bonding and Cementing Zirconia Restorations: Current Clinical and Scientific Information
Zirconia continues to play a significant role in modern restorative dentistry. From Implants to abutments all the way to frameworks and monolithic crowns. How we manage the process of bonding and cementing these restorations is extremely important to their long term retention and success. This presentation highlights the different approaches available today and specifically defines protocols with clinically relevant research.

Treating the Terminal Dentition: A Patient-Center Approach
In patients with terminal dentition esthetic and functional replacement is a necessary objective, but no longer a sufficient-objective: nowadays, due to the clinical and extra clinical characteristics of these patients, management of the therapy is as important as its conclusion. Respect of the principle of autonomy, reduction of treatment length, simplification of surgical procedures and prosthetic management of implant immediate loading are the cornerstones of this philosophy and are the object of this lecture.

Multitasking Digital Dentistry - Part 1 of 2
The "Digital Smile Design" is a technique codified and published in 2011 by Christian Coachman and Marcelo Calamita. This approach has radically changed the way we analyze the aesthetics of our patients and at the same time gave the clinician a great tool of communication with the laboratory and with the patient. In recent years, softwares and applications have been introduced on the market in order to simplify the workflow and make more predictable the outcome. The purpose of the lecture is to resume the current concepts about digital aesthetic preview, and to show new trends.

Quest for the All Ceramic Restoration

Quest for the All Ceramic Restoration
The all-ceramic, full-coverage restoration has long been the center of the profession's ardent quest for the consummate esthetic restoration. Over the years, we have come to acknowledge the optimal esthetics of the all-porcelain crown, but its tendency to fracture over time rendered it an "alternative" restoration for specifically selected cases when compared to the "workhorse" of porcelain-fused-to-metal restorations. The initial dental feldspathic porcelains exhibited low shear strength with a…

Advanced Esthetic Management of Dental Implants: Surgical and Restorative Considerations to Improve Outcomes

Advanced Esthetic Management of Dental Implants: Surgical and Restorative Considerations to Improve Outcomes
This article demonstrates the importance of proper surgical and prosthetic principles in achieving esthetic implant results.Successful dental implant therapy in the maxillary anterior dentition requires meticulous attention to surgical and prosthodontic measures. Proper diagnosis, extraction technique, implant selection, and placement significantly impact outcomes. Respect of hard and soft tissue physiology following tooth loss and implant placement requires specific steps be taken. Management tissue contours properly, via regenerative therapy, results in successful framing of the restoration. Provisionalization and definitive restorative therapy also impacts the level of esthetic success.The contours of the temporary abutment and crown develop soft tissue contours for the final restoration. Overcontouring can lead to soft tissue recession and mucosal asymmetry. Design of the definitive crown(s) is crucial for long-term maintenance of esthetically acceptable results.
