A Systematic Approach to Full-Mouth Reconstruction of the Severely Worn Dentine

dental continuumThe restoration of severely worn dentine is one of the most challenging procedures in dentistry. In order for one to successfully restore and maintain the teeth, they must gain insight into how the teeth became so damaged in the first place. The wear and tear of teeth could be a result from abrasion, attrition, and erosion. Research has shown that these types of wear mechanisms rarely act alone and there’s nearly always a combination of the process.

When it comes to evaluation and diagnosis, one should always account for the patient’s diet, history of eating and/or gastric disorders, along with the present state of the occlusion. Emphasis must be placed on the evaluation of occlusal prematurities to prevent condylar seating into the centric relation position.

The Rehabilitation of a Smile | Publications

494183909One of the many dilemmas restorative dentists face today is how to successfully rehabilitate severely worn, mutilated dentition. Most times, excessive wear is the beginning of occlusal, functional, and aesthetic instability.  “The challenge to the dental profession, as a whole, is when to restore, how to intercept the problem it presents and what treatment modality will best accomplish the most stable and aesthetic result.”

In this publication, Dr. Michael Apa and Dr. Larry Rosenthal, have undertaken what they consider to be a severely dysfunctional occlusion. With the help of master ceramists at Frontier Dental Laboratories, Dr. Apa and Dr. Rosenthal were able to restore an almost hopeless situation into virtual, functional and aesthetic is less than two week.

Congenitally Missing Lateral Incisors | Publications

ThinkstockPhotos-464323669In this day and age, dental professionals are exposed to many complex esthetic, restorative and functional challenges. Fortunately, there’s an equal number of dental procedures and materials available to accomplish treatment of these complex challenges. Treatment alternatives are either termed traditional or nontraditional. For dental professionals who are dedicated to providing state-of-art solutions, treatment outside of “traditional” must be considered every now and then.

One of the most challenging esthetic restorations are the replacement of congenitally missing lateral incisors. When a clinician is presented with the replacement of congenitally missing lateral incisors, they must consider the types of treatments available, along with the possible outcome. The traditional treatment options include orthodontics, traditional 3-unit bridge, single tooth implant, or Maryland Bridge.

Patient-Driven Treatment Options | Aesthetic Advantage

dental continuumThe practice of dentistry allows its practitioners the opportunity to diagnose and treat many dental problems. The methods that dentists typically select are the ones they feel most comfortable with, the ones they know will provide immediate results, and the ones they know will last the longest. Dentists look at each individual case presented to them and seek an evidence-based solution to correct the problem.

Using Computerized Occlusal Analysis | New York, NY

dental continuumThere have been many advancements in dentistry over the years, one of those advancements include the way dentists go about completing an occlusal adjustment. Dental practitioners would rely on articulating paper to determine occlusal contact and force. However, this protocol had led dentists some dentists to make irreversible adjustments to the human anatomy. This happens because there is no further analysis or measurements of problems like bite force and timing. To complete a successful occlusal adjustment a computerized occlusal analysis instrument should be used.

The use of a computerized occlusal analysis instrument is an extremely accurate way to measure the time sequence or force of occlusal contact. But despite this technologies proven force reproduction capability, the instrument has been underused in the dental profession. This instrument can be used with any occlusal philosophy interocclusal relationships.

Aesthetic dentistry has created its own niche in today’s world. The value of dentistry, more importantly the perceived value of dentistry, and has taken on greater meaning. Aesthetic procedures now range from the “extreme” makeover to the “simple” makeover, both of which use various principles of the “Smile Lift.”

The “Art of Facial Aesthetics” is a routine phrase and approach in many contemporary dental practices. This phrase has even greater meaning when one considers the expansion of the whitening market and the increased use of aesthetic orthodontics (ie, Invisalign, Align Technology, Santa Clara, CA).

Certainly, the use of porcelain veneers and conservative crowns has enabled dentist to become a major player in the development or restoration of facial aesthetics.
