"The Rise of the Machines" Creating the Digital Dental Team: Man, Materials, and Machines
The new millennium has brought many advances in dental ceramics. None more important than processing techniques using Cad-Cam technology. These technologies have allowed the use of high strength glass ceramics and solid sintered Zirconia based ceramics that could not be used with conventional techniques. Thus, today it is possible to generate any type of indirect dental restoration with a Cad-Cam device. To date, no system has the ability to layer machined substrates to maximize anterior esthetics, which provides an excellent opportunity to use or combine the best of the human world with the best of the machine world to develop world-class anterior esthetics. This presentation will cover, “THE CURRENT POSSIBILITES FOR THE BOUTIQUE DIGITAL DENTAL LAB and IN-OFFICE DIGITAL DENTAL TEAM”, and the clinical and laboratory steps in the process for different types of restorations, along with esthetic enhancements for the use of these ceramics.

The Digital Workflow in a Modern Clinical Practice Premium Member Content

The Digital Workflow in a Modern Clinical Practice
In prosthetic rehabilitations, we use for many years codified and widely described protocols in literature, with results that meet our expectations and well above those of our patients. It is true that the advent of new technologies has enabled us to use new material and new equipment that facilitate the production of an adaptation and an accuracy that has, up to now, been difficult to obtain. Today, intraoral mapping technology is one of the most exciting new areas in dentistry since three dimensional scanning of the mouth is required in a large number of procedures such as prosthodontics, implant dentistry and orthodontics.

Where does DIGITAL fit in today’s clinical practice? Premium Member Content

Where does DIGITAL fit in today’s clinical practice?
With the advances in digital technology dentistry has benefited in many ways. Faster more efficient workflows have been developed, making clinical practice not only better for the patient but also more profitable for dental practices. Basic treatment planning knowledge must not be forgotten or skipped. This lecture will approach digital dentistry from a clinical approach, focusing on material selection, treatments and workflows present in todays digital era.

Communication Protocols with Photography Premium Member Content

Communication Protocols with Photography
Digital photography is a very important subject in dentistry. It is hard to know where to start, especially when applying to dentistry. This lecture serves as an ad aid for the clinician and technician during the process of approaching the patient from treatment planning presentation to the process of integration digital photography into the color-matching procedure.

CBCT in Endodontics: Changing the Landscape of Diagnosis and Clinical Treatment
Radiographic imaging is essential in the diagnosis, treatment planning and follow-up in endodontics. The interpretation of an image can be confounded by a number of factors, including the regional anatomy as well as superimposition of both the teeth and surrounding dento-alveolar structures. As a result of superimposition, periapical radiographs reveal only limited aspects, a 2-dimensional view, of the true three dimensional anatomy. Additionally, there is often geometric distortion of the anatomical structures being imaged with conventional radiographic methods. These problems can be overcome by utilizing small or limited volume cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) imaging techniques which produce accurate 3-dimensional images of the teeth and surrounding dento-alveolar structures. This presentation will highlight the indications, advantages and considerations of the use of CBCT in endodontics.

Managing Technology for Best Outcomes and Productivity Premium Member Content

Managing Technology for Best Outcomes and Productivity
Digital technology provides tools to improve planning, clinical execution, prosthetic design, manufacturing, maintenance, and cost of care. Dental professionals need to understand the value of individual technologies as well as the benefit derived from linking them together. During this presentation, a business model and clinical cases will be used to illustrate how a number of digital technologies can impact outcomes and productivity.

Bisphosphonates and Their Impact on Patient Treatment

Bisphosphonates and Their Impact on Patient Treatment
There has been increasing discussion concerning a variety of implications for patients who have been administered bisphosphonates, which are FDA-approved chemical agents used in the treatment of osteoporosis, metastatic cancer involving the bone, and Paget's disease. I The first report of the biological characteristics of bisphosphonates was published in 1968, when scientists discovered that bisphosphonates have a marked ability to inhibit bone resorption. Bisphosphonates suppress or reduce bone…

Oral Soft Tissue Laser Ablative and Coagulative Efficiencies Spectra

Oral Soft Tissue Laser Ablative and Coagulative Efficiencies Spectra
The key to the success of soft tissue lasers is their ability to cut and coagulate the soft tissue at the same time. Present work is aimed to derive the wavelength-dependent differences in photo-thermal ablation and coagulation efficiencies for oral soft tissue pulsed dental Near-IR Diode, Mid-IR Erbium and IR CO2 lasers. Even though the soft tissue photothermal ablation has been extensively studied, there remains a discrepancy between (a) the widely proliferated notion about efficient Near-IR 800-1,100 nm laser ablation of the oral soft tissue, and (b) studies reporting the inefficient soft tissue Near-IR absorption/ablation. Indeed, the notions about “the key to the usefulness of the Nd:YAG is that this wavelength is highly absorbed in oral soft tissue”, and “all currently available dental laser instruments and their emission wavelengths have indications for use for incising, excising... oral soft tissue surgery”, contradict an observation illustrated here...
