Prevention 0: The best way to prevent peri-implant disease?

June 19, 2019

The philosophy of prevention in all medical professions is increasing from a global perspective. In fact, prevention of chronic non-communicable diseases, the major burden of illness and disability in almost all countries in the world, has been strengthened in recent years. The motivation is to ensure a better quality of life for people and to reduce public health expenditures. In dentistry, periodontitis is one of the major chronic non-communicable diseases. World experts in periodontics and science have published several principles regarding the prevention of periodontal diseases.

Anti-ageing medicine and orthodontic appliance therapy treatment: An interdisciplinary approach

May 15, 2019

Anti-ageing is a branch of medicine focused on how to prevent, slow or reverse the effects of ageing, thus helping people to live longer and healthier lives. Recently, however, more evidence-based medicine has led to antiageing becoming a multi-billion-dollar industry. In the past few decades, the market for anti-ageing products and services has grown into a global industry valued at an estimated US$261.9 billion in 2013, up from US$162 billion just five years before, according to BCC Research, a publisher of technology market research reports based in Wellesley in the US.

The complete digital implant workflow

May 15, 2019

Planmeca is known for high-tech innovations and continuous product development. The company’s powerful Planmeca Romexis software platform allows all stages of the dental implant and aesthetic prosthodontic treatment to be completed using one piece of software, from the computer-assisted design of patients’ smiles to the fabrication of surgical guides. The following clinical case, which I performed together with my colleagues Dr Ponomarev, Dr Kozhevin and Dr Yarokhin, illustrates how digital solutions can be used in prosthodontic treatment, implant placement and restoration design. According to our experiences, digital CAD/CAM technologies enable maximal functional and aesthetic results compared to traditional methods.

Optical impression and provisional prosthesis: Proposal for a new approach

April 21, 2019

The widespread use of intraoral optical impressions and constant improvements in dental computer-aided design (CAD) software today allow the practitioner to manage various kinds of clinical situations, from the simplest to the most complicated, by using different types of dedicated equipment (camera software, processors and, more recently, 3D printers) as part of a completely digital workflow. Arch scanning methods using intraoral scanners yield impressions that are comparable to those obtained with traditional equipment in terms of clinical precision because they eliminate the variations caused by the user, reduce the readjustment processing time and costs, and improve patient satisfaction and comfort.
