Digital Work Flow. What Will Be the Tomorrow of Dentists Who Follows the Digital Systems and Who Does Not?

Digital dental technology is evolving rapidly. From Diagnosis to the final treatment we are using digital technologies. Restorative materials and production processes have significantly evolved. The popularity of ceramic restorations such as zirconia is increasing rapidly, along with the CAD/CAM processes used to produce them. Many labs have already been working with an important tool in the transition to digital workflow. In this lecture we will discuss the steps and problems of digital workflow processes in dental clinics.

Long Term Success Criteria in Prosthetic Restorations

Prosthetic restorations have an important role in the practice of dentistry. High-quality prosthetic treatment can only be accomplished, if it is based on several key principles and specific criteria. These principles and criteria influence success and allow patients to use restorations for long periods of time. Considering that prosthetic restorations are performed with a high budget in all dentistry treatments, long term success is the first goal of the physicians in the name of the patients. Success can be achieved in many cases, depending on extensive clinical evaluations and strategies that used to pass them on. Failure, sometimes is a result of overlooking standard applications and sometimes is a result of confronting unnecessary risks. It is also important to note that the long-term success is depend on establishing a correct treatment plan. Although the criteria adopted and the methods used for restoration of natural tooth loss, which usually occur due to tooth decay, trauma, abrasion, etc., are similar in the past, the treatments for tooth loss have almost completely differentiated today. In particular, dental implant applications and implant prosthetic applications should now be viewed with a completely different perspective.
