UnBreakable
Article Date: Dec 09, 2014 Vol 13, No 9
Antonio Lazetera

When it comes to the arena of acr ylic prosthetics, particularly implant supported restorations, it becomes even more critical that a dense, durable acrylic with an adequate impact strength is used. Literature has shown that there is a 60% to 200% increase in masticatory force associated with implant retained and supported prosthetics over conventional dentures.

Removable Restorations with SR Nexco Almost as Fixed!
Article Date: Oct 16, 2014 Vol 13, No 8
Christian Hannker and Michael Maak

Asolution could be for a removable prosthesis on bar with SR Nexco. The result has impressed both the team that has done the treatment and at the same time, the patient: a natural reconstruction, almost as fixed! The patient has come in the office with mobility of teeth. A precise periodontal diagnostic reveals the need to remove all elements of the upper arch. The rehabilitation with a total prosthesis was considered inadequate by the patient, who instead wanted a fixed solution. After a detailed plan using Dental Imaging, diagnostic wax-up, and subsequent transfer into a model in polyurethane it was evident that it would be impossible to provide a reconstruction without fixed regenerative procedures due to excessive bone loss. However, this was then rejected by the patient. To get closer to having a more possible fixed solution we opted for a mobile prosthesis with a bar. On the ends of the anchorage six implants on the two sides in region 1, 3 and 5 were inserted. The surgeon’s advice was to splint the implants on 3 and 5. The anchoring of the prosthesis is carried out by means of a bolt to engage in the region of 6.

A Study in Poly Chromatic© Natural Enamel Shading©- Part 2 of 2

Jim Emmons CDT,FNBC

Up through 1960 (fig.12 /13) shading stains were oxides and then progressed to opaque base ceramic materials that require a clear glaze overlay to seal the surface, these stains leave a lifeless surface coloration that can actually appear muddy when the application is heavy.

Technological Innovations Related to Dentures
Article Date: Sep 26, 2014 Vol 13, No 7
Massimiliano Petrullo

This article describes the steps related for the fabrication of removable dentures made with a new type of resin Curing system. (V.L.C.). The protocol is part of the systematic integrated TRE, which has as its objective the replacement of methyl methacrylate with an auto- thermo-polymerizing (P.M.M.A.) that may be used in all procedures of the laboratories: removable prosthesis, fixed, orthodontics, with the these resins V.L.C.

CoCr Dry Mill- Easy as Wax
Article Date: Sep 26, 2014 Vol 13, No 7
Knut Miller

Powerful innovation is incorporated into the Ceramill Sintron® CoCr sinter metal from Amann Girrbach. This nonprecious metal revolutionises the manufacturing process, as the wax-like texture of the Ceramill Sintron® blanks (CoCr blanks) allows them to be effortlessly dry milled on in-house benchtop machines such as the Ceramill Motion. The labour-intensive and error-prone casting procedure and therefore time-consuming manual working stages are no longer required.

Functional Design Systematic Planning Removable Cast Partial Dentures, Part 2
Article Date: Apr 01, 2014 Vol 13, No 4
Dr. Dirk Brose, Dr. Roland Schecker

Even with today's state-of-the-art technologies, cast partial dentures remain an appropriate treatment method for prosthetic restoration of the residual dentition. An analytical procedure during construction planning allows for permanent treatment results with any initial situation.

Fixed dentures on implants Perfect Interdisciplinary Collaboration, Part I
Article Date: Feb 03, 2014 Vol 13, No 2
Christoph Schmelzer, MDT, Bernd Quantius

Case history The patient presented in the practice for the first time with a total upper jaw prosthesis and a telescopic prosthesis in the lower jaw, where only 33 was still present. The patient reported being very dissatisfied with both of his prostheses due to the poor adhesion, and he was having major difficulties when eating. The patient was also not satisfied from an aesthetics perspective due to the different colours in the upper and lower jaw. There was a lack of harmony in the occlusal planes; there was no Spee curve. This problem can be seen clearly in Fig. 1. The patient did not want a removable restoration in the lower jaw, but instead wished to have a fixed restoration in the upper and lower jaw (Figs. 1 to 5). He was advised on the possibility of a conventional implant and on the treatment method to be used for both jaws - with the All-on-6 treatment concept in the upper jaw and the All-on-4 concept in the lower jaw.
