square_8 Beautiful Materials for Aesthetic Restorations
Our teeth are of paramount significance in our appearance as it is responsible for our radiant smile. They affect our self-esteem and influence our social contacts. Therefore, in addition to restoring the masticatory function, the aesthetic impact is also a very important criterion for the success of treatment - to the extent that some patients seek dental treatment only because they are unhappy with how their teeth look. Materials for aesthetic dentistry and dental prosthetics will be presented at IDS 2015, with many restoration examples.  Read More...

Besides that, many of these restorative materials were not aesthetic.  Read More... 
 

square_8 Management of Tooth Wear in General Dental Practice: ‘Minimal Intervention, Optimal Predictability
The progressive wear of dental hard tissues occurs as part of the natural ageing and physiological process. On the other hand, "pathological tooth wear" is a diagnostic term commonly used to describe a pattern of tooth wear that may be deemed excessive, given a patient's age. It is not uncommon for a general dental practitioner to see several cases of pathological tooth wear on a weekly basis, which goes for patients of all ages. It has been observed that patients today live longer - with their natural teeth being retained - even as their age advances. This is due to the more recent changes in lifestyle, as well as food and beverage consumption habits.  Read More...

Recently, a combination titanium and tantalum dental implant was developed by replacing the medial threads of a conventional tapered endosseous implant design with highly porous tantalum midsection. The tantalum material simulates the structure and elasticity of trabecular bone and its open network of pores enables vascularised bone formation inside the material.  Read More...
