Featured Clinician:

Alisa Neymark, D.D.S.

Member, American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry

 

Synopsis:

Through the combination of new and old technology, a paradigm shift inprognosis can occur. Laser decontamination and osteoblastic promotive techniques, alongside splinting, occlusal adjustment and root amputation, have resulted in improved outcomes. So why are we still taking out teeth that can be saved?

 

A restorative practice built around saving teeth can be both lucrative and satisfying. No replacement for teeth has come close to providing the confidence and function of natural dentition. Through a collaborative approach between specialists and the restorative dentist, a new prognosis model emerges. Learn how to treatment plan with certainty to improve outcomes for longevity of teeth that have confounding restorative, periodontal and endodontic disease.

 

Dr. Neymark will be discussing periodontal splinting using the Ribbond system and deep margin elevation, as well as touching on occlusal equilibration as an alternative to implant therapy. Upon successful completion of this lecture the attendee will:

  1. Learn how to splint periodontally affected teeth using Ribbond as an adjunct to grafting to improve outcomes

  2. Discuss the benefits of and indications for deep margin elevation
