Treatment of the Fully Edentulous Patient: Prosthetic Implant Solutions

Description:
Restoration of the completely edentulous patient with dental implant therapy is a rewarding treatment modality for the patient and dentist. In order to accomplish consistent and predictable treatment outcomes, an understanding of the fundamental principles of implant biomechanics, prosthetic, surgical and treatment planning considerations is required. Dr. Aldo Leopardi’s objective is to bring all of these factors into perspective, through an understanding of the current literature and how to apply it to clinical practice. Discussion will include, but not be limited to: Review of treatment planning for the overdenture patient. To understand the biomechanical principles in Prosthetic. Design: stress broken verses rigid design concepts. Discussion of fixed implant restorative solutions for the completely edentulous patient.

Thank you for this excellent summary of treating the edentulous arch. I particularly enjoyed that your addressed complications and patient (and doctor) expectations related to these treatments. Lastly, your comment that clinicians/patients are doing much of the research regarding full arch one piece zirconia frameworks because of a lack of actual data derived from long term research, is well made. In the case of one arch restorations (one piece zirconia) vs. a natural arch of teeth… and in cases of both arches restored with one-piece zirconia restorations, have you seen any complications as of yet? If so, what are you seeing? Where now is the weak link in the system? Thank you.

Invisalign Records for the Dental Team
It is evident there are a variety of malocclusion and health concerns that can be treated by orthodontic therapy. Factors from treating systemic issues to minor tooth movement can be addressed specifically to the patients’ needs and desires. Not only is it important for the dental team to be aware that orthodontics can improve one’s quality and longevity of life, but that the knowledge of current orthodontic therapy treatment modalities available will enhance the overall comprehensive care the patient receives.

Vertical or Shoulderless Preparations in Contemporary Prosthodontics Premium Member Content

Vertical or Shoulderless Preparations in Contemporary Prosthodontics
Tooth preparations without a defined finish line have been termed in several different ways, such as knife edge, feather edge, or shoulderless. From a biological standpoint, preserving a maximum amount of sound tooth structure, as it is done in vertical preparations, might also offer a more conservative alternative to a horizontal margin design in other clinical conditions such as endodontically treated teeth, vital teeth in young individual, teeth affected by caries at the cervical third. Vertical margins on zirconia crowns have been tested in vitro and clinical reports have been published. A re-evaluation of possible advantages and shortcomings of vertical preparation design in contemporary prosthodontics will be presented in light of recently published literature.

Indications of In-Office Treatments: Topical Fluoride, Varnish, Foam and Gels Premium Member Content

Indications of In-Office Treatments: Topical Fluoride, Varnish, Foam and Gels
A study conducted in the 1990s, demonstrated a steady rate of decline of instances of coronal caries through the 1980s. This decline was attributed to an increase in oral health education regarding diet, oral hygiene and an increased awareness about the benefits of applying fluoride-containing topical treatments such as dental sealants varnishes, foams, or gels to the teeth of individuals of all ages in moderate-to-high risk groups for caries. This presentation reviews the history, efficacy, and indications. You will learn the history of all varnishes, differences in fluoride foams and gels as well as which fluorides work best for different patients and practices.

The Interdisciplinary Software Platform. The Key For Modern Digital Dentistry
The starting point of a facially driven interdisciplinary dental treatment plan is "The Smile Frame". A few crucial photos and steps will come together to create the ultimate template you need to communicate to your dental team, colleagues, and the patient to ultimately increase case acceptance and create the most aesthetic and functional method of rehabilitation to your patient. We will discuss how this paradigm shift of regular analog dentistry has shifted to this modern digital world and the benefits it provides. The protocol proposed will improve the diagnosis, communication and predictability of esthetic rehabilitation, from simple implant or restorative cases to complex cases, combining perio, ortho, and othognathic surgery. Emphasis will be given to the utilization of digital tools to enhance and facilitate the Dentist/Technician interaction and communication with the patient.

The goal of this study was to quantify the apicoincisal extent of the proximal contact area (PCA) between the eight maxillary anterior teeth. PCAPs should be taken into consideration for clinical anterior restorations since they determine the papillary and incisal embrasures.

Efficacy and Persistence of Tooth Bleaching Using a Diode Laser with Three Different Treatment Regimens
Bleaching is the most conservative esthetic treatment for discolored teeth when compared to resin-bonded composites, porcelain veneers, or crowns. The purpose of this study was to compare the efficacy of power bleaching using a laser assisted hydrogen peroxide system, and to determine the stability of the color change over a 6-month period.
