Extensive rehabilitations on implants should be both aesthetic and functional. its adequate functionality strongly depends on using compex protocols. Dental aesthetics is a well explored field of dentistry, but functional occlusion is presented with redundant complexity making it difficult to be used on practice. It is till not always clear enough which factors are crucial and which ones are just additional. That is why it is so important both for dentist and for dental technician to find out and understand several important factors, which can lead either to success or to failure of clinical case both in aesthetics and in function.
Below topics will be focused:
- importance of integration of central incisions with patient’s face using dental-gingival-labial concept
- main role of definition and transfer of occlusal surface and why where are so many mistakes on this stage
- simplified using of articulators when it is really necessary
- when, how and why it is necessary to increase occlusal height and identify patients with high risk level
- understanding of importance of static and dynamic occlusion and related mistakes
The goal of this lecture is to show that total rehabilitation can be very simple and logical if one just concentrate and start controlling some crucial factors and if both dentist and dental technician will clearly understand them.
