The Expanding Role of DNA and Bacterial Identification in Perio Therapy - Part 1 of 2

Description:
The treatment of periodontal patients has evolved over the years. Once considered a predominantly resective profession, we have developed over the past 30 years to evolve into a regenerative specialty. Today, our profession aims at targeting treatments based upon specific patient attributes which include DNA and genetic testing as well as bacterial identification and antibiotic therapies. This direction has allowed us to become a "highly" specialized profession aimed at stability, maintenance and evaluation of each individual patient beyond classic visual clinical parameters. This lecture will highlight the specific role of Salivary Diagnostics in a Clinical practice which includes an evaluation of PPT (periodontal pathogens), PST (genetic periodontal susceptibility) as well as the presence of HPV (human pappiloma virus) and how to best incorporate it into your clinical practice.

Maurice, I don't want to sound like Lt. Columbo, but please give us the details where we can obtain information in our respective places of practice where these test labs are. Thank you....Gerry Rudick Montreal

Gerald; I could not agree more. This is an older presentation but we have not changed utilizing this test routinely in our clinic. Thanks Dr. Salama

Excellent presentation. The results of these tests should be explained to people considering undergoing implant therapy; as they are as important as a blood test. The patients must be aware of what is living in their saliva , try to take action in their personal lives to improve their condition.....and the results of these tests kept and noted in the patient's chart.

Still a very important part of therapeutic perio therapy.

From 2D to 3D: The Benefits of 3D X-ray in the Different Fields of General Dentistry
In the last years, a continuously rising number of companies are presenting new CBCT models on the market with a increasing variety of indications. It becomes more and more demanding for the average user to hold a overview and even more difficult to differentiate between clinically relevant facts and “marketing-driven-issues” that are claimed to these new products.

CBCT-Guided Implantology- Improving the Accuracy and Success of Tooth Replacement Premium Member Content

CBCT-Guided Implantology- Improving the Accuracy and Success of Tooth Replacement
The integration of cone beam technology and 3D imaging has advanced the practice of digital dentistry. CT-guided implant planning combined with the use of a Computer Guided Surgery (CGS) implant placement kit leads to increased precision, accuracy and efficiency of implant placement. To realize the full advantages of CT guided surgery, it is important to have a thorough understanding of software and workflow, as well as the specific components of the Guided Surgery kit and their use. This session will demonstrate how the merging of implant planning software, CAD/CAM technology and CGS is enabling surgeons and restorative dentists to leverage the benefits of digital dentistry.

3-D Smile Designing with a Functional Touch: The Dental GPS Way
In this esthetic driven era, the responsibility of delivering something that is functionally and esthetically acceptable is of utmost importance. Today , we have something called Dental GPS which is a software that is available both in a clinician version and lab version. It is not only able to help us with the simulation of the proposed results in less than 5 minutes but also able to help us print the diagnostic M lines to help us mount the casts (using a digital facebow) for 2D wax ups and / or 3D virtual wax ups for 3D printed models. This presentation will highlight the usage, simplicity and precision of planning and execution using the 3D smile design software.

The Role of Digital Technologies & Materials for Full-Arch Implant Reconstruction Premium Member Content

The Role of Digital Technologies & Materials for Full-Arch Implant Reconstruction
In prosthetic rehabilitations, we used for many years codified and widely described protocols in literature, with results that met our expectations and well above those of our patients. It is true that the advent of new technologies has enabled the dental team to use new material and new equipment that facilitated the production of an adaptation and an accuracy of the prosthetic rehabilitation that has, up to now, been difficult to obtain. In this presentation, we will analyze different cases, highlighting the operational differences that they have developed over time, with the increasing knowledge of the new materials and the daily developing of the new software's. It is also described how traditional materials and techniques have been replaced with other innovative new technologies, and how the results obtained with these are systematic and significantly better in updated generations prior.

Multitasking Digital Dentistry - Part 1 of 2 Premium Member Content

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.
