Minimally Invasive Protocols for Total Esthetic Reconstructions

Description:
One of the biggest challenges that we dentists have are those cases that require a multidisciplinary approach which traditionally were managed using invasive and long term treatments. Nowadays, and depending on the case, the contemporary dentist can offer minimally invasive treatments which allow us to modify the shape of the hard and soft tissues. The combination of surgical lip repositioning with periodontal plastic surgery yields highly effective results in the treatment of gummy smiles. During patient examination it is important to establish the etiology responsible for the excessive gingival display. The combined technique can be considered as an alternative option to more invasive procedures. The prognosis is acceptable and the patient realizes that the esthetic problem has been minimized.

Ultimate Solution for Minimally Invasive Feldspathic Veneers
Full monolithic zirconia with external stain technique is one of the popular preference techniques used today. There are many selections of multi-layered zirconia disks and blocks available in the market, which enable dental technicians to produce faster and more esthetic results. When it comes to anterior fabrication, however, full monolithic is not always the best option to process the case. There are many varieties; unique translucencies and characterization that can be seen naturally, making it nearly impossible to achieve with just an external stain technique. That is to say, in order to achieve a natural and lifelike fabrication, a layering technique must be done. This lecture will speak about all ceramic layering technique with current technology of digital tools and how these technologies may be able to assist us.

Innovative Sequencing for Interdisciplinary Aesthetic Treatment
Smile enhancement therapy has become an important facet of the everyday aesthetic practice. Aesthetic evaluation utilizing facial aesthetic design to diagnose tooth position demands effective communication between the periodontal-restorative team. This presentation will review innovative sequencing techniques for interdisciplinary cases which require aesthetic crown lengthening for the treatment of excessive gingival display, and for gingival augmentation for root coverage, and the correction of poor gingival quality. Immediate implant placement with immediate non–loaded provisional fabrication will also be reviewed.

RUBBERDAMology: Tips and Tricks With Isolation
It is well known that all dental work must be under full control by operator. We always try to do our best during root canal treatment, or placing composite restorations, or luting bonded ceramic constructions. We pay a lot of attention to details and procedures, learn all new aspects of operative dentistry, follow all steps and protocols but… some time do waist our invaluable time due to challenging with moisture – saliva, bleeding, tongue, chicks, lips that are often on our way to reach the goal. And this competition is always more stressful then other most important components. Fortunately we have got great assistant for this “dirty” job that gives us stress-free conditions of working, saves our time and health and gives best ergonomics. It is rubberdam. During our lecture we will open all secrets how to use this most helpful system in operative dentistry controlling our main task – treatment.

Adhesive Dentistry: From Direct to Indirect Restorations
Restorative dentistry has changed in recent years. New materials and techniques allow the execution of partial restorations, direct and indirect, with metal-free techniques and started a true partnership between this discipline and prosthodontics. A good esthetic and functional rehabilitation starts from the proper clinical evaluation of the patient and of his problems, planning all the clinical and laboratory procedures in order to reduce the possibility of performing a subpar restoration. It is very important to have a synergy between the clinician, the dental technician and the patient and to make the right use of the protocols and a flow chart to address all patient needs. The goal is to achieve the right balance between biology, esthetic and function by applying a minimally invasive approach.

Reconstruccion Protesica Gingival

Reconstruccion Protesica Gingival
La apariencia saludable del tejido circundante y su arquitectura son componentes esenciales para lograr la estética dental. Para crear el efecto de DENTICION NATURAL, es indispensable que el tejido gingival, se vea similar al de los de los dientes circundantes. La cirugía periodontal, siempre y cuando sea predecible es y ha sido un tratamiento de elección, previo a la colocación de la prótesis definitiva. Pero en algunos casos la cirugía es imposible o indeseable. La utilización de la CERAMICA ROSADA, es una solución para defectos gingivales, no solo donde la cirugía gingival no es posible, sino como un tratamiento opcional no quirúrgico o como primera opción.

Surface Roughness of Restroation Margin Preparations: A Comparative Analysis of Finishing Techniques

Surface Roughness of Restroation Margin Preparations: A Comparative Analysis of Finishing Techniques
This study compared the margin profile and surface roughness created by the tips of four different finishing instruments: fine diamond, dura white stone, tungsten carbide, and ultrasonic diamond-coated tips (UDTs). The aim was to determine which of these instruments produced the smoothest finish and created the most evenly contoured margin characteristics. It was hypothesized that UDTs would produce a rougher dentin surface than a fine diamond bur, that a tungsten carbide bur would provide a smoother finish than a fine diamond, and that the dura white stone would produce an intermediate finish.
