Dynamic navigation—The future of minimally invasive endodontics

March 11, 2020

Dynamic real-time surgical navigation digital imaging, diagnostics and impressions, and the use of computer-aided design/computer-aided manufacture (CAD/CAM) for prosthesis fabrication and lasers for soft and hard tissue augmentation are altering the developmental framework in dentistry. Nowhere is this more prevalent than in the foundational pillar of endodontics.

Digital face-bow transfer technique dentofacial analyser for dental aesthetics

February 14, 2020

Digital workflows are becoming more popular and are in demand among clinicians and laboratory technicians owing to the increased incorporation of CAD/CAM tools into the daily practice. Digitisation of records and data through cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) scans, intra-oral scans and model manipulation contributes to better communication processes for diagnostics, treatment planning, designing and manufacturing in dentistry.

Digital ecosystem: The future is not in five years, the future is now

February 5, 2020

At a time when venerable institutions in numerous countries, such as the UK’s National Health Service, are already setting up their own digital ecosystems and when not only companies but also private households are increasingly becoming almost paperless, it is certainly not too early to take an interest in the digitisation of our own dental practices. Many practices are already equipped with digital devices that replace or complete some steps of the traditional dental procedure in the daily practice. However, what I would like to highlight in this article is the potential that those clinicians who are willing to fully engage in the digitisation of their practices and to create their own digital ecosystems can realise.

Atraumatic extraction of maxillary second premolar

November 29, 2019

A 76-year-old female patient visited our clinic owing to pain in the left maxilla. She had a fistula in the buccal gingiva between tooth #25 and position #24. There were implants in positions #24 and 23. Tooth #25 already had a crown. The tooth had been affected by secondary caries earlier and had been repaired. A periapical radiograph showed an active inflammatory process in progress from the endodontically treated tooth that greatly worsened the prognosis and could have adversely affected the implants. The prognosis was therefore considered poor and we decided to extract the tooth.
