Recent developments in digital technology are rapidly changing the way we approach planning and treating patients...See more with implant-supported restorations. Predictable outcomes are routinely derived through a coordinated effort between the restorative dentist, surgeon and technician. It is therefore imperative that the treatment team have common goals, knowledge of available technology and desire to incorporate this technology into the workflow to achieve optimal patient care and esthetic results.
This course covers concept and application process of gingival porcelain for a naturally esthetic outcome. In this...See more two day hands-on course, Jungo Endo will explain, demonstrate, and train you with the fabrication of a three unit bridge: How to achieve lifelike implant restorations with gingival porcelain; what possible problems may be present in highly esthetic demanding cases and how to solve these problems.
This diverse hands-on program focuses on the state-of-the-art prosthetic treatment of tooth and implant supported...See more restorations. The different techniques for treatment in the esthetic zone, from simple to complex cases, are the red line in this course and will be presented using scientific evidence and clinical experience.
Jill Haugo shares advanced CAD/CAM design techniques for creating a zirconia or other milled-ceramic restoration,...See more requiring no post-milling adjustments, including a variety of fine tooth characteristics and morphologies.
Aki Yoshida, RDT, shows step-by-step procedures for fabricating the porcelain build-up map, adjusting hue, chroma...See more and value after first bake, and verifying color reproduction for all-ceramic restorations. This presentation also provides new insights on the integration of color science and art.
CAD/CAM restorations are increasingly in demand for various reasons, from improved esthetics to greater efficiencies....See more Chris May, CDT, shares his secrets of success for gaining efficiencies in his lab and growing his business through the precision, efficiency and esthetics of the material portfolio available through the Straumann® CADCAM platform. May also includes his case examples.
Masayuki Saito, RDT, explains the material science of PFM, PFZ, FCZ and Pressed LD, and the crucial points of laboratory...See more procedures to minimize risk. He also discusses time-efficient methods and how to evaluate the most structurally sound and esthetically effective outcomes for each material.
Almost half of small lab owners work with family members. Of those family members, 68% handle bookkeeping and administrative responsibilities; 67% are responsible for pickup and delivery; and 40% work at the bench.
Specializing in implant borne prosthetics, Midwest Dental Arts has discovered a technique to improve soft tissue management that we want to share. This is the first of a 2-part article that illustrates how to create a soft tissue model, using an iTero milled model with the Straumann Repositionable Implant...
Both zirconia and metal lack fluorescent qualities, which we should attempt to re-create when restoring the oral cavity with fixed prosthetic restorations. When applying porcelain to a zirconia or metal coping or framework, it is helpful to use a porcelain material that has fluorescent properties to...
>When Aaron Hoffman, Troy Gooden and Eric Gooden, Co-Owners of Sunflower Dental Studio in Topeka, KS, first saw the impressions for a 20-implant reconstruction, they thought it looked like something from a sci-fi movie. It was the largest case Hoffman had ever had the opportunity to work on during his...
How about a round of applause for one- to three-person laboratory owners? With almost another decade to go before many of these operators feel "the calling" to retire, they are still very much engaged in the here and now and are clearly living the well-disciplined, well-balanced life. Bravo.
The majority of respondents to LMT's Small Lab Survey are enthusiastic about the outlook for their own businesses, calling their future "good" or "great." However, their prediction for the market segment as a whole isn't quite so rosy.
We used to associate CAD/CAM with zirconia but, today, almost any product you want to make can be envisioned through CAD/CAM--whether it's the entire product or part of the product," said Don Cornell, Vice President of Jensen Dental, during his program, Critical Considerations for Integrating a CAD/CAM...
More than 80% of laboratories offer CAD/CAM-fabricated restorations and nearly two-thirds of them outsource the understructures to another laboratory. LMT talks to these laboratory owners about how to get the most predictable, consistent results.
Nearly 50% of respondents to a recent LMT e-survey say they plan to invest in some type of cad/cam equipment within the next five years. If you're one of them, but are daunted by the options and don't know where to start, LMT's done your homework for
>Dennis Ouye, CDT addresses the importance of proper design and structural support.
Fractures in ceramic restorations have always been a challenge for technicians. Traditionally, they were caused by the lack of strength of feldspathic ceramic and insufficient bonding to the tooth.
