Dental Excellence Video 19: Dental Implant Adventures

This is the 19th video from my Dental Excellence video series.

A couple of weeks ago I was prepping a rehabilitation case and we had a bit of an unexpected implant adventure. This new video will tell you all about it and offer a very nice solution.

 

Thank you again for being a member of my online community and remember.

You can do this kind of dentistry!

I believe that beautiful dentistry with precise fit and occlusion is not just for the gurus.

All the best,
Stephen

Severe Wear Patient Case Study

A couple of months ago a patient came into my practice with severe tooth wear relative to his age. His main goal was to have a nicer smile with longer, whiter teeth.

In the video below I am going to share with you some of the initial records for this patients case. As you are watching the video I would like you to consider how you would manage this patient if he entered your practice? What would be your main concerns for providing this patient with a nicer smile and longer, whiter teeth?

Two of the questions (of course there are others as well) that I think are important when you are planning a wear case like this are:

1. Would you alter the vertical dimension?
2. What kind of guidance pattern would you design?

I would like to invite you to a Complimentary New Training Webinar on February 13, 2013 at 8pm EST. The webinar is called Managing The Severe Wear Patient and I will outline the steps involved for treating the patient featured in the video.

During the webinar I will answer the two questions above and share with you how we designed the diagnostic wax-up, provisional restorations and overall Occlusion Design for this patient.

Best regards,
