"The Rise of the Machines" Creating the Digital Dental Team: Man, Materials, and Machines

Description:
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.

As always, Dr. McLaren knocks it out of the park with his knowledge and skill. I'd love to here a follow-up lecture on his bonding technique and which cements and bonding agents he uses. Great presentation. Dr. Keith Reber

Thank you for this excellent course. Are your feldspathic porcelain baked on platinum foils or on refractory cast and dies?

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.

The Hidden Value of Digital Radiography for Caries Detection Premium Member Content

The Hidden Value of Digital Radiography for Caries Detection
Digital radiography allows the dentist to use powerful image analysis tools to extract information from the image that might otherwise be missed by visual inspection alone. Historically interproximal caries detection is done by visually inspecting the radiograph for evidence of a radiolucency produced by the decay and visually determining if the decay is deep enough that a restoration is required.

Improving the Dentist/Technician Communication for optimum Smile Design and Ceramic Restorations Premium Member Content

Improving the Dentist/Technician Communication for optimum Smile Design and Ceramic Restorations
As modern dentists and dental technicians we need to keep abreast of the latest developments in dentistry and incorporate new techniques and materials into our armamentarium on an ongoing basis. Moreover, it is essential that all the team members participate proactively in the treatment planning process in order to ensure the best possible result for the benefit of the patient. Consequently, consistent interaction among the members of the dental team is required. Technicians should have a basic understanding of clinical procedures and the development of target-oriented communication protocols are essential prerequisites for a smooth workflow and the provision of high-quality service. Dentists should be aware that crucial treatment steps such as the diagnostic wax-up, the fabrication of the mock-up, shade selection, material selection, prep design, and the fabrication of temporary restorations, etc. can be greatly improved by taking into account the technician’s perspective.

The Proof is in the Laboratory; A Maxillary Full Arch Implant Supported Zirconia Prettau Comparison
The FP-3 “Implant Supported Hybrid" has proven to be an exceptional and highly specialized treatment option for patients with non restorable teeth or existing edentulism. The use of zirconia provides the ultimate outcome bringing with it a new standard of esthetics, function and, when done well, a long lasting prosthesis. This presentation will stress the importance of treatment planning, CAD CAM technology, and the all important need for the laboratory technician’s human touch. Surgical aspects, provisonalization during healing, and management of soft tissue are important components. The protocol for final fabrication of the FP-3 all zirconia prosthesis is detailed along with a description of this exciting new technology.

Non-Surgical Periodontal Therapy: Decision Making in the 21st Century
Non-surgical periodontal therapy is a vital part of everyday dental practice. Since the majority of periodontal therapy is performed by general dentists and dental hygienists, it is critical that clinicians have all of the requisite skills and information needed to perform these services at the highest level possible. The purpose of this presentation is to provide the latest evidence- and practice- based information on periodontal debridement and adjunctive therapies that can improve patient outcomes. Though surgical procedures may still need to be performed in some sites, the majority of inflammatory periodontal disease can be eliminated or reduced significantly using the techniques and protocols discussed in this educational segment on non-surgical periodontal therapy.

Aesthetic Design Preservation in Multidisciplinary Therapy
Complex perio-prosthetic cases that require multidisciplinary therapy often result in compromised aesthetics. Traditional treatment planning philosophies, as well as existing interdisciplinary relational patterns, do not promote the achievement of predictable aesthetic results. Implementation of a restorative-driven approach requires the development of an aesthetic blueprint that will serve as a guide through treatment. This article illustrates the clinical techniques and sequence for an outcome-based protocol…

Smile Analysis - The Photoshop Smile Design Technique: Part 1
Computer design software will become the main communication technology between dentists and ceramists and a useful tool for showing patients the possibilities for enhancing their smiles. By understanding the elements of esthetics and learning how to incorporate technology applications into clinical dentistry, clinicians can predictably plan smile design cases and communicate anticipated results to patients and ceramists alike. This article, the first in a two-part series, introduces elements of smile design and reviews some timeless concepts. It discusses new, step-by step techniques for incorporating digital technology into the smile design process that can be accomplished in approximately three to four minutes.
