Electroforming in Restorative Dentistry

New Dimensions in Biologically Based Prostheses

Author: Jakob Wirz,Andreas Hoffmann

Publisher: Quintessence Publishing (IL)

ISBN: 9780867153767

Category: Medical

Page: 430

Electroforming is a process that involves the deposition of layers of gold to form esthetic support structures featuring highly adaptable margins for a precise fit; when veneered with ceramic, these restorations also offer superb durability and functionality. Since electroforming can be used with titanium as well as with gold, this technology has broad potential for use with implant-supported prostheses.

The Dental Reference Manual

A Daily Guide for Students and Practitioners

Author: Geraldine M. Weinstein,Mitchell T. Zientz

Publisher: Springer

ISBN: 3319397303

Category: Medical

Page: 530

View: 4538

This book is designed to meet the needs of both dental students and dentists by providing succinct and quickly retrievable answers to common dental questions. Students will find both that it clearly presents the particulars which should be familiar to every dentist and that it enables them to see the big picture and contextualize information introduced to them in the future. Practicing dentists, on the other hand, will employ the book as a daily reference to source information on important topics, materials, techniques, and conditions. The book is neither discipline nor specialty specific. The first part is wide ranging and covers the essentials of dental practice while the second part addresses individual specialties and the third is devoted to emergency dental treatment. Whether as a handy resource in the student s backpack or as a readily available tool on the office desk, this reference manual fills an important gap in the dental literature.

Graftless Solutions for the Edentulous Patient

Author: Saj Jivraj

Publisher: Springer

ISBN: 3319658581

Category: Medical

Page: 434

View: 6816

This book, designed to meet the needs of clinicians, clearly explains the rationale and technique for the rehabilitation of fully edentulous patients utilizing traditional graftless concepts as well as zygomatic implant strategies when posterior support cannot be achieved by the former means. Considerations relevant to treatment planning and the biomechanics of immediate loading and zygomatic implants are first discussed. The techniques for placement of traditional tilted and zygomatic implants and for immediate loading of a full arch restoration are then described step by step. Detailed information and guidance are also provided on the different materials available for full arch restorations, laboratory aspects of the definitive restoration, maintenance of restorations, and management of prosthetic and surgical complications. The book concludes with a helpful series of clinical cases. Graftless Solutions for the Edentulous Patient is designed particularly for clinicians with experience in placing and restoring dental implants.

Publisher: John Wiley & Sons

ISBN: 1118608712

Category: Medical

Page: 200

View: 3811

Maxillary sinus elevation, followed by placement of a wide variety of grafting materials, has been the generally accepted surgical protocol for the development of bone in the sinus cavity. Over the years, various techniques have been proposed for maxillary sinus elevation, which differ in surgical approach, bone graft materials, and advanced technology application for hard tissue and soft tissue management. Dr. Kao and a team of experts begin by discussing anatomy, radiographic image applications and limitations, and then provide step-by-step clinical procedures for the lateral window technique, including piezosurgery, and the trans-alveolar methods, including balloon and controlled hydostatic sinus elevation. Also included are chapters on post-operative care and complication management.

Providing patients with a natural-looking smile is an important goal for the dental professional. However, obtaining an accurate shade match for restorations can be a difficult and frustrating experience. This book explains the basic science and art of color to help the reader better understand the mechanics involved in the shade-matching process. Moreover, it details the myriad clinical elements that can affect the perception of color. The authors also present easy-to-follow protocols for both conventional and technology-based shade matching, including tips for communicating with the lab technician and a recommended protocol that combines both approaches. Twelve case studies demonstrate this combined approach, which improves productivity and clinical success by allowing the clinician to achieve an accurate and esthetic shade match, in most cases with only one fabrication.
