The material of the future for all kinds of indications

September 7, 2021

Implant prosthetics and dental prosthetics differ considerably, with the absence of periodontal ligament in the implant/prosthesis complex. This situation causes mechanical problems to the implants,  especially to the implant prosthetic material, due the lack of stress absorption resulting from the normal impact during chewing.1,2 Among the problems we face in daily practice is the unscrewing and fracturing of veneering material of the implant crown and fracturing of  implant/abutment components.

Simplified protocol for adjacent Class II direct resin restorations

January 12, 2021

Bioactive direct composite resin materials like the next generation high strength injectables and low shrinkage packable composites, when used with advanced matrix systems, provide clinicians with an opportunity to adopt a minimally invasive patient-centric treatment approach while preserving sound tooth structure. Material selection is an important step in treatment planning for posterior restorations. The use of bioactive composites under strict isolation with rubber dam helps to achieve aesthetics and function with long-term clinical success while minimising the risk of secondary caries.

IPS e.max ZirCAD Prime: Put to the ultimate test

June 9, 2020

Dental technicians routinely produce monolithic crowns and partially veneered mandibular posterior bridges. As a result, they get very excited when something different and highly challenging comes along, such as the individual incisor described in this article. In these situations, efficiency and profitability become secondary. The dental technician just has to take one quick look at the natural adjacent teeth to get the creative juices flowing. As the colour, anatomy and individual details of the teeth are registered, possible outcomes are immediately visualized. The following account is a case in point.
