The Rosenthal Aesthetic hands on course is a class designed to give you day to day scenarios in which you will be dealing with aesthetic procedures as a dentist. This course is designed to give you hands on interaction with whomever you’d like to bring along as your patient. If you don’t want to bring a patient, you don’t have to and you only have to pay half of the tuition. There are two other levels that follow this course and it is encouraged that you take all three of them.

On our first day you will sit in on lectures on prep techniques, smile design principles, cementation techniques, patient management treatment planning, lab communication for a more predictable result, material selection and more. You may bring a patient and prep a live case or you will be able to audit (observe over the shoulder) up to 10-15 cases being prepped and inserted at this course, as well on clinic day. You will be able to return one month later to sit in on lectures regarding cementation, occlusion, advanced cases and marketing, then go to clinic the following day to observe 10-15 cases being inserted.

Aesthetic Advantage emphasizes the importance of hands on dental courses because of the many advantages they offer compared to a traditional classroom setting. If you are looking for a way to further your knowledge and expertise regarding dental education call Aesthetic Advantage today.

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.

Ensure Long-Term Protection of Patients’ Restorative |New York, NY

ThinkstockPhotos-464323669There are many challenges that clinicians face when restoring a patients smile. Not only do clinicians face initial issues such as worn dentition, but they also face the challenge of preserving the patients newly installed restoration. In some cases even after restorations are complete, there’s the chance that the patient could damage their new smile. This could be due to bruxism, an occlusal and skeletal disharmony etc. Fortunately, the use of an anterior splint device, known as BiteSoft™, can help effectively manage and preserve the patient’s restorative investment.

By taking advantage of these advancements in CAD/CAM and robotic technologies it has made final abutment fabrications and final CAD/CAM restorations more predictable for clinicians. Anterior restorations now can be fabricated in one visit, as where before it took many visits to match the shade characteristics. Furthermore, the use of this technology has enhanced the education experience of newly trained professionals.

Steps in Creating a Beautiful Smile | Aesthetic Advantage

close up smile red lipstickCreating beautiful smiles that complements each individual patient’s facial features is no easy task, but by utilizing a technique that uses facial landmarks to dictate where each tooth should be positioned it can be done. Not only can this technique enhance an individual’s features, it can also allow for a more conservative reconstruction.

By following simple principles concerning the special arrangement of the patients face, clinicians can provide a more natural smile. Some patient’s may be resistant to the technique till it’s explained to them fully. When this technique is done properly it provides natural results that creates a smile that looks like the one the patient was born with.

A Systamatic Approach to Full Mouth Reconstruction | New York, NY

Aesthetic-Dentistry

 

 

 

 

 

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/or 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/or 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 space availability for prosthetics becomes limited. If lengthening the teeth is a goal in order to achieve a more aesthetic smile, then the question of the need to alter VDO subsequently arises.

Ensure Long Term Protection of Patients’ Restorative | New York, NY

As the clinical challenges of debilitated dentition are addressed, clinicians must also consider the significance of occlusal rehabilitation and with this, occlusal protection. The following two case presentations represent different, but significant occlusal challenges. As each patient sought aesthetic improvement, often the solution involved major occlusal change. The use of an anterior splint device (ie, BiteSoft) to manage occlusal disharmony and Bruxism may often be required to achieve long term treatment success and preserve the patient’s as well as the clinicians’ restorative investment.

Through the advances of aesthetic dental procedures, materials, and technology, the future promises to be even more innovative and exciting, with extraordinary yet predictable results. In cases of occlusal disharmony and pathologic Bruxism, the use of anterior splints (ie, BiteSoft™) can aid in long-term comfort and success.
