Alternative Design for Resin Bonded Bridges: A Clinical Report

Description:
When replacing missing teeth, resin bonded fixed partial dentures (RBFPDs) are a routine, minimally invasive option for patients that cannot or will not move forward with surgical interventions. Debonding of RBFPDs, however, remains a significant clinical problem. In this clinical report, novel RBFPD designs are presented, to improve retention and esthetics.

Great presentation with a great outcome for the patient. I imagine that this is only possible with team work and an experienced mentor.

Wendy, Prudent approach with Great esthetic result - no real potential morbidity or loss of non renewable tooth structure The adhesive approach is a well documented technique with remarkable recorded longevity and today all too often overlooked as a viable tooth replacement option

Pure Dental Esthetics – From Titanium to Zirconia
The replacement of a single tooth with dental implants, especially when the patient has a high smile line, has been an esthetic challenge in implant dentistry. Typically, it requires very careful stages to create the final restoration as natural as possible. When there is loss of soft tissues, carefully made dental-gingival prosthesis becomes an alternative of therapy. For all cases with high smile line, achieving perfection in color and texture of the restoration it's not an easy task. Currently there are some ways to achieve better aesthetic results, including digital scanning of colors. This presentation describes step-by-step the application of a protocol developed in our clinic. Several cases will be discussed. In addition, recent technologies such as zirconium implants are also be discussed.
