A Systematic Approach to Full-Mouth Reconstruction of the Severely Worn Dentition | New York, NY

Dental Continuum

Restoration of the severely worn dentition is one of the most challenging procedures in dentistry. In order to successfully restore and maintain the teeth, one must gain insight into how the teeth arrived at this state of destruction. Tooth wear can result from abrasion, attrition and erosion. Research has shown that these wear mechanisms rarely act alone, and there is nearly always a combination of the processes. Evaluation and diagnosis should account for the patient’s diet, history of eating and gastric disorders, along with the present state of the occlusion. Emphasis must be placed on the evaluation of occlusal prematurities preventing condylar seating into the centric relation position. Behavioral factors that may contribute to parafunctional habits and nocturnal bruxism are also important to understand and manage in order to successfully restore and maintain a healthier dentition. Once a complete understanding of the etiology of the dentition’s present state is appreciated, a treatment plan can be formulated, taking into account the number of teeth to be treated, condylar position, space availability, the vertical dimension of occlusion (VDO) and the choice of restorative material.

While all occlusions wear to some degree over the lifetime of the patient, normal physiological wear usually does not require correction. Severe or excessive wear refers to tooth destruction that requires restorative intervention. Severe attritional wear can result from occlusal prematurities that prevent functional or parafunctional movements of the jaw. This wear can be seen at the site of the prematurity or on the anterior teeth as a result of the “hit and slide” forward. Restoration of the worn anterior teeth then becomes a challenge as the availability of space for prosthetics becomes limited. If lengthening the teeth is a goal in order to achieve a more esthetic smile, then the question of the need to alter VDO subsequently arises.

Tobacco Is Killing the Good Ones | New York, NY

It’s nothing new – we all know that smoking is bad for you. And while there are lots of ways to quit smoking on the market, many still haven’t made the choice to quit. But this goes beyond lung conditions and cancer risks, smoking is also affecting our smiles and dentists have a hard time advising their patients on the dangers of smoking. In order to help sway the masses, let’s take a look at what can happen if you continue to smoke or use tobacco products.

A new study has indicated that there is a reason why smokers suffer higher rates of oral diseases. It has been discovered that in smokers, good bacteria are essentially ejected by pathogens created by smoking. Believe it or not, but our mouths are the frontline when it comes to keeping diseases at bay. These good bacteria in our mouth work by keeping bad bacteria that causes infections and diseases (pathogens) away. In nonsmokers, good bacteria will repopulate the mouth shortly after cleaning and acts a shield to protect your mouth from disease. In smokers, good bacteria will not resurface and instead the mouth gets colonized by pathogens (bad bacteria). And it is these pathogens that will cause infections and diseases will rapidly develop. If you see these symptoms or find that your mouth is changing for the worse, we advise to talk to your dental professional about seeking treatment. Prevention is the best medicine and can keep your smile healthy and radiant.

The Hands-on Aesthetic Continuum | New York, NY

Dental Continuum

Here is your chance to observe over-the-shoulder or participate hands-on with a patient. Our 4-day program is spread over two weekends with a focus on comprehensive aesthetic and restorative dentistry. Through our lecture series, participating doctors are able to listen to lectures on step-by-step prep techniques, smile design principles, impression and cementation techniques, patient management, treatment planning, material selection, lab communication for a more predictable result, and more.

On our first clinic day, participants may bring a patient and prep a live case or participate without a patient and observe over the shoulder up to 10 to15 cases being prepped and temporized. One month later, participants will return, and through our lecture series, listen to lectures on cementation, occlusion, advanced cases, and marketing.

The following day, they will seat their cases in clinic. Participants who chose to observe will watch over the shoulder 10 to 15 cases being inserted.

It has been shown that the graduates of our long-running aesthetic/ restorative programs have seen their practices grow and flourish even in these challenging economic times. Let us infuse your practice with a new philosophy and fine-tune your skills to become more confident and passionate about the practice of aesthetic dentistry, setting yourself apart from others in your community!

Patient-Driven Treatment Options | New York, NY

Dental Continuum

Before we wrap up 2019, let’s take a look at how treatment options are tailored to our patient’s needs. Not only are our patients coming to us for their dental health, but they also want to have a smile they can be proud of. For many, visiting the dentist is a dreaded task. We need to change their minds. This is why it is so important to offer our patients the best care possible.

The 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.

As new techniques and materials become available in dentistry, dentist now must choose between applying the treatments they are comfortable doing or to challenge themselves to learn to use new techniques and materials. By continuing education in a profession that’s constantly changing, dentists can provide endless possibilities for their patients.
