Collapse Improved Predictability With Advanced Esthetics

Clinical success can be defined by achieving a result that is aesthetic, functional and predictable. Today's demand for such a high level of aesthetics and predictability require a collaborative effort between the dentist and technician. This seminar investigates the factors that allow a relationship between the dentist and technician to result in extraordinary and predictable results. Historically, restorations have been fabricated to work within an "envelope of function." Remember, when we chew, teeth actually don't touch. Given that fact, it isn't during the envelope of function that teeth or restorations fail. Instead, it is when we extend beyond and into the "Envelope of Parafunction" that destruction occurs. If we can create restorations that exist within this envelope of parafunction, we have better opportunity for success. This presentation introduces the "Outside/Inside" evaluation. This refers to seven specific steps that must be considered when developing any treatment plan. Following these steps result in restorations that are aesthetic and functional while improving predictability. Other factors that contribute to consistency and predictable restorations will be discussed.

    Collapse Solving Technician/Dentist Problems Through Mutual Understanding of Occlusion

    Solving Technician/Dentist Problems Through Mutual Understanding of Occlusion

    This course will focus on critically important issues that will make our dentistry more predictable and longer lasting. Many times the dentist misplaces the blame of the need for excessive adjustment when inserting new crown and bridge restorations. Often it is the fault of a moving condyle or an improperly misdiagnosed occlusal-muscle condition.

    Both dentist and dental technician must be fully schooled in the various possibilities relative to occlusal planning and occlusal conditions that can lead to much greater value of these restorations for our patients. When both of these team members have studied together and have clear occlusal objectives, then the results are greatly enhance, predictable and the working relationship is much improved. The result is a mutual respect and recognition that it is a true partnership.

    Collapse Techniques and Material Selection for Optimum Esthetics

    The challenge of keeping up with the rapidly evolving array of options in esthetic restorative dentistry can be daunting. It is critical that both the dentist and the dental laboratory technician maintain an understanding of the indications and limitations of the various systems.         

    In this presentation we will discuss the indirect restorative materials available, and identify the strengths and weaknesses of each. Additionally, we will cover critical communications that must take place between the dentist and ceramist, and how to determine what materials best satisfy different restorative situations. Subjects presented will include, determining when the metal-ceramic restoration is still considered the restoration of choice, what situations are best satisfied by bonded porcelain restorations, which all-ceramic restorative systems can dependably mask discolorations and metallic build-ups, and how some systems match particular shade and translucency situations better than others.
