Part of creating an optimal workflow involves the ability to reliably plan for variables that differ with each patient. 3D imaging gives the clinician the ability to view anatomical structures not seen in two-dimensional images. The following case study involving a male patient in need of a restoration shows the advantages of utilising 3D imaging and an integrated digital workflow.

The layering concept using IPS e. max Ceram power materials
August 10, 2018
Recently, several new ceramic materials were launched in the market due to the growing demand for safety and aesthetically pleasing prosthetic solutions. CAD/CAM chairside technology has been developed with the aim of manufacturing prosthetic structures with characteristics of constant quality. CAD/CAM technology not only offers the possibility of directly designing a restoration on a computer and automatically obtaining the final product, but also offers many advantages compared to the conventional techniques in terms of speed, precision and ease of use. The following case shows how MyCrown CAD/CAM chairside can change traditional dentistry by opening new ways of solving for both aesthetic and health issues.

The configuration of post-endodontic treatment cavities is typically deep. If the surrounding tooth structure is still intact, there will be a high C-factor (cavity configuration factor) due to the large surface area for the filling material to bond to.

Although the headquarters of COLTENE are in Switzerland, its endodontics plant is in southern Germany. At the factory, located in Langenau, a town between Stuttgart and Munich, 155 employees produce treatment auxiliaries and endodontic equipment in a fully automated and camera- and laser-controlled process. The German location houses an impressive logistics department thanks to the office’s central location. Dental Tribune was invited to learn more about the company’s endodontic products.

A 43 year old female came to my practice with a history of non-attendance. She was concerned about generalised sensitivity with her heavily-restored dentition, many teeth of which featured extensive composite restorations with recurrent caries detectable both clinically and radiographically. Certain teeth with extreme structural compromise were planned for bonded porcelain restorations, however, restorations like this large MOD were planned to be restored with direct composite due to financial constraints.

It is well established that caries levels in industrialized nations have decreased over the last few decades with the greatest reductions occurring on the smooth and approximal surfaces. Because of the complex occlusal anatomy, more sensitive and reproducible diagnostic tools for precise caries detection in children are needed.

Indirect restorative procedures can be time-consuming and complicated: many different processes from impression taking to cementation are carried out in the dental office, and in each of them, different strategies may lead to success. However, some of the available materials and techniques will involve a lot of effort, while others enable users to proceed quickly and simplify the complete procedure. A simplified workflow from prep to crown that really makes life easier for the dental practitioner is described below.

Female patient, 47 years old, presented with a clinical picture of extensive iatrogenic perforation of the furcation region of the dental element 36 (Figs. 1 and 2), associated with radiographic bone loss, vestibular fistula and pain on palpation. The patient reported history of having been previously subjected to an urgent intervention in this tooth by other professional, as it presented acute pain characteristic of pulpitis.

It becomes especially challenging for dental technicians to produce natural, age-appropriate reconstructions in the visible area of the mouth for older people. It is recommended to establish a very planned procedure based on the characteristics of the natural teeth for the individualization and characterization of such a restoration.

With the information now available to the general public through internet access, many patients often come to visit a dentist already armed with some facts they have researched. This also fuels the attitude of, “l'm too busy to keep coming to see the dentist- I need it all done in one visit."
