Questions related to Esthetic Dentistry
What kind of material is Tera Harz TC-80DP for maxillofacial surgery? What is its composition? Where can I view SEM images of this material? Thank you!
Global outlook regarding restoration of First Permanent Molar with MIH
- Lets discuss with global perspective of dental practice treating patients with MIH condition.
- Scientific evidence-based most suitable full-coverage restorative option for permanent first molar with MIH condition
If a 73 year old patient presents to your clinic with chief concern of inability to eat. You find that the patient has unstable occlusion as a result of erosive tooth surface loss. Moreover the patient has a forward head posture with a stooping back.
Where should the final occlusion be set? and how?
Someone knows about a research about changes in properties of expired composites?
Sometimes in practice composites expired are wasted or trashed. i want to know if someone investigates changing in aesthetic properties, volumetric, adhesively....
Thank you in advance.
Dr John Mew (a strong proponent of Orthotropics therapy) has discussed extensively about the indicator line. Can we really predict position of maxilla based on this line?
Do we have any research in the solutions of the following problems?
1. The data registration and utilization into pre-CAD and in-CAD data or workflow of the in-streamline dental CAD/CAM systems:
1.1. - The condylar movement registration (non-CAD data format).
1.2. - The occlusion stress on bite plane (non-CAD data format).
1.3. - The relative movement of jaws in the biting (non-CAD data format).
1.4. - The facial & smile design capturing, in both 2D and 3D (non-CAD and CAD data format).
2. The open library for specific objects for special restorations:
2.1. - Wax-up morphology of dentitions or teeth by nationalities, genders and ages.
2.2. - On-implant customizable restorations.
I am conducting a research about Oral health related quality of life by using OHIP-14. One of my variable for conceptual framework is Knowledge,attitude and practice. I am having trouble with the literature part to support which model do I base on for the KAP part. Is there any model that support KAP and oral health related quality of life? I need to put something to support my variable for my literature review part. If anyone can help, please do. Thank you
Does bleaching, especially home bleaching either with Carbamyl or Hydrogen Peroxide cause calcium loss or degradation in tooth enamel?
I am writing a book about the intelligent design of the teeth, including the biofunctional mechanical forces of occlusion, and the method of construction of dental restorations, by copying the trilaminar pattern of the teeth. Any information about my question will be appreciated.
Current opinion is requested/is there a necessity to seal the orifice/orifices of endodontically treated teeth with glass ionomer to prevent microleakage under composite restoration or not?
There are many methods for predicting the vertical dimension of occlusion, However, until now there is no scientific method approved in this field.
We find such cases in our clinic. We may confused at that time what we should do. Many options like surgical clinical crown lengthening, extraction followed by implant placement, extraction followed by fixed partial denture or removable partial denture. For long term prognosis, it is very difficult to select the treatment option.
Is there any article discussing this issue and which technique is preferred, to redo the final impression, reline the crown or take pick up impression ?
Using ovate pontics extending into the extraction socket, as part of provisional bridgework, opposed to normal healing after extraction.
I have come across a new thing, Reverse Innovation. In this phenomenon, a technology is reinvented to carry out a task to suit the situations in lower and middle income countries. This makes the technology more efficient and cheaper. If we incorporate this into dentistry somehow, we can increase the volume of the patients, thus get more patients for the increasing number of dentists.
What do you think about it?
