Digital Dentistry For The Private Practice
Digital Dentistry for Private Practice; Implants, Aesthetics and Occlusion
CAD/CAM technology has the advantage of reduced clinical chair-time and reduced laboratory costs. The accuracy of these techniques has improved to the point where they are now comparable to conventional techniques. This presentation will review the current technology which allows the fabrication of crowns, veneers, implants and designs of all surgical and restorative solutions. Scan bodies for all implant designs willalso be discussed. Full-arch restorations and Occlusion principles will be discussed as they relate to new materials and technologies in their application in private practice
- At the conclusion of this lecture the participant will understand the advantages and disadvantages of:
- Digital Work flow for private practice
- Digital scanning for teeth and implants.
- Patient experience in digital office
- Occlusion principles for Full Arch Restorations and Implants
Treating the Worn Dentition: Success without the Stress
Since our dental school education we were always told that “we could not open the bite”. Many clinicians avoided treating the “worn dentition” others had great success. This program will help de-mystify with practical methods of how to restore OVD position up to 10 mm. The long term success of these patients with these techniques has been documented and recorded both radio-graphically and with photographs with up to 15 year results. Using sound prosthodontic principles and digital analysis of the OVD, these restorations can become standard in our private practice. Anterior determinants and posterior determinants can show us the way through this gray area of dentistry.
Objectives of this program:
- Diagnosing worn dentition vs. attrition
- Radiographic determination of the condylar position
- Occlusion Vertical Dimension digital analysis
- Treatment options for restoring OVD
- Anterior and Posterior Determinants for OVD
- Classification of FMR
