Wax-Up Techniques in Aesthetics and Functional Occlusion
Fabrication of posterior prosthetic teeth is an art that requires technicians to reproduce the minute details of occlusal form using difficult methods of wax-up. Written for students as well as experienced clinicians, this landmark book will change the way that technicians wax up teeth.
This book guides readers, step-by-step, through the author’s revolutionary wax-up technique to recreate the complex morphology of premolar and molar teeth. Lavishly illustrated throughout, each chapter builds technical knowledge with chapters on nomenclature, morphology, wax handling and application, functional wax-up sequences for maxillary and mandibular dentition, and adhesive cementation and culminates in a series of impressive clinical cases. A must-have resource for any dental technician wanting to review occlusal form and improve the functional morphology of posterior restorations.
Contemporary Protocols for Anterior Single-Tooth Implants
Gamborena, Iñaki / Blatz, Markus
This book beautifully showcases the concepts, materials, and techniques essential to mastering the most demanding of all surgical and restorative challenges, the anterior single-tooth implant. To achieve the long-lasting esthetic and functional results displayed in this clinical masterpiece, one must attend to the myriad details associated with each phase of treatment. Designed for a new generation of visually oriented learners, the book presents step-by-step clinical procedures that unfold like the frames of a film, so that readers may “watch” at their own pace and pause as necessary to contemplate these fine details. This experience will spark the curiosity, creativity, and imagination of even the most veteran surgeon.
Manauta, Jordi / Salat, Anna
Despite the many advances of contemporary dental research in biomaterials and tissue regeneration, no dental material can perfectly correspond to natural tooth. The authors of this dynamic atlas posit that it is the mastery of layering technique and not the material itself that is most important in recreating natural-looking restorations.
An A to Z Guided Workflow
This atlas synthesizes the latest technologic advances in esthetic dentistry and shows how to successfully integrate them into clinical practice. Part I begins with a chapter on dental photography that focuses on the correct settings and use of equipment needed to obtain high-quality images for documentation and communication with patients and the laboratory. Subsequent chapters present the steps involved in the esthetic preview, which provides the opportunity to try out a proposed treatment and make adjustments before undertaking any procedures, increasing patient acceptance and satisfaction.
