Intraoral pictures are generally considered particularly tricky; they require you to take a range of challenging details into account and professional teamwork is essential. Dr Arnd Peschke from Ivoclar Vivadent headquarters in Schaan, Liechtenstein has provided the following advice which will be of use to you and your dental assistant to create high-quality clinical photographs.

1. Planning is the be-all and end-all Intraoral pictures require careful planning; they are considered particularly demanding because they require a high level of consistency. Image area, orientation, depth of field, illumination, colour temperature and scale should all remain unchanged in the images across the entire sequence.

2. Attention to detail is key Your photography may be affected by the practical details of the clinical situation. For example, the placement of a rubber dam may result in a change in the light situation – and lead to deviations from the colour temperature and brightness compared to the initial situation. Manual fine-tuning is essential in such circumstances. This means that the exposure parameters and white balance should be adjusted as required.

DENTAL PHOTOGRAPHY: HOW TO MASTER THE ART OF TAKING GREAT INTRAORAL PICTURES

OptraGate retracts the lips and cheeks evenly and gently, allowing more effective, relative isolation of the treatment field.

3. Remember to include each step Detailed planning is especially important when shooting step-by-step sequences as it is often impossible to reconstruct a setting later on. Before starting the session, compile a list with all the settings that you want to photograph and then work through them systematically. Otherwise, it may happen that you forget to take pictures of a specific situation that will be difficult to recreate later on.

4. The environment should fit the subject Images can lose some of their value because the surroundings depicted on them do not match the subject on the picture. For instance, the image sequence of a highly aesthetic inlay restoration loses its appeal if it is shown next to a defective amalgam filling. Plaque, gingivitis or excessive saliva can also cause this problem. To avoid this, pay attention to the surrounding details so that your pictures convey the quality of your treatment and the materials you are using appropriately.

Top tip: It is often necessary to include instruments (e.g. brushes, spatulas, contra-angles) on intraoral pictures. For this reason, we recommend using an oral mirror with a long handle. Longhandled mirrors provide easy access to the treatment field and do not obstruct the access of light.

EFFICIENCY AND AESTHETICS IN THE POSTERIOR REGION Since bulk-fill composites have been on the market for a number of years, the time has come to take a look back at the introduction, development, current trends and future options of these materials. When bulk-fill composites first hit the market, they were considered a true innovation. We had been layering posterior composites for more than 40 years, yet many of us were not quite sure for what reasons the layering technique was mandatory. Understanding the reasons why a certain technique is applied is crucial for the correct assessment of the pros and cons of any technique.

bonded surface area. Although there is enough in-vitro evidence on the relevance of the C-factor, a clinical correlation has not yet been shown. This point can be easily illustrated by the fact that Class-I restorations have an unfavourable C-factor but a high survival rate while Class-V restorations have a favourable C-factor but a low survival rate. This example shows that the C-factor is only one of many factors that determine the success of a direct restoration - and frequently not the most important one.

Basically, the reasons were four: 1. Aesthetics: It is obvious that a layering technique involving dentin, enamel and effect shades leads to a better final outcome than a technique that uses only a single layer in a standard translucency. As regards the bulk-fill technique, this reason can easily be rejected because, objectively, most posterior restorations are almost always placed using one shade only and most patients are satisfied with the result. 2. Reduction of volumetric shrinkage: The less composite we place, the smaller the volumetric shrinkage. 3. Reduction of shrinkage stress: This reason makes sense and is based on the configuration factor. It is said that the shrinkage stress is reduced if the unbonded surface area of a layer is larger than the

6

4. Depth of cure: This is probably the most important factor because increments of only 2 mm could be applied before the advent of bulk-fill composites. Some studies suggest that the depth of cure of certain composites is even lower than 2 mm. This was the reason why all layers were restricted to a maximum thickness of 2 mm. If not, the composite material placed in the deeper areas of the cavity would never receive enough light to cure adequately. Having discussed all these factors, we may realise that we are not so far from the bulk-fill technique. If a composite is capable of reducing the stress when applied in thick layers and, at the same time, offers an increased level of translucency and a more effective light-curing process, the bulk-fill technique is feasible. In most cases, shrinkage stress relievers are responsible for the reduction of shrinkage stress. Shrinkage stress relievers are fillers with a lower modulus of elasticity.

w w w. i v o c l a r v i v a d e n t . c o . u k


Their function is to release the stress as the composite polymerises. The second aspect, i.e. the depth of cure, was achieved by making the composites more translucent with the effect of enhancing the passage of light through the material. As a result, the depth of cure was increased. This point has also been proven to be true. In addition, some companies such as Ivoclar Vivadent improved the polymerisation process in deeper areas by adding newly developed initiators (e.g. Ivocerin®) to the formulation. Nowadays, all major dental manufacturers offer bulkfill composites. Bulk-fill composites can basically be categorised into two main groups: first, flowable bulk-fill composites requiring a final capping layer and, second, sculptable bulk-fill composites. Generally, these materials increase the efficiency of the restorative workflow as they allow the fillings to be placed with either a single-increment technique (sculptable composite) or a two-increment technique (dentin replacement with flowable composite and capping layer with sculptable composite). These methods are obviously faster and easier to perform than conventional layering procedures. However, this advantage is undermined by the fact that bulk-fill materials are generally too translucent and allow discolourations to shine through the restorations, especially if they are used to replace an amalgam filling. Nevertheless, clinical evidence has shown that the results achieved with the new bulk-fill methods are comparable to the results achieved with con-ventional multi-layer techniques. Fortunately, new developments often pave the way for new technologies. By this I mean the Aessencio technology developed by Ivoclar Vivadent. The Aessencio technology allows a composite to be highly translucent prior to being light-cured and causes a drop in translucency as it polymerises. Once polymerised, the material exhibits a dentin-like translucency and is capable of effectively masking most discolourations. Practitioners can follow a very efficient procedure to accomplish fillings due to the Aessencio technology of Tetric EvoFlow® Bulk Fill and the combination with Tetric EvoCeram® Bulk Fill as the final capping layer. Two steps will be enough in most clinical situations. At the same time, patients will receive a sufficiently aesthetic restoration. In addition, the entire adhesive restorative protocol has become more predictable with the recent introduction of universal adhesives, as they have eliminated the need for dentin etching. Dentin etching was one of the reasons for the variability and sensitivity of the adhesive technique in the past years. A recently published meta-analysis showed the importance of predictable clinical protocols as the correlation between in-vitro tests and clinical performance is poor. Furthermore, there is growing evidence in clinical trials and elsewhere that self-etch protocols show a favourable performance.

Clinical case A 33-year-old patient presented with a failing amalgam res-toration on the upper right 4 with no interproximal contact (Fig. 1). After the amalgam filling had been removed and a rubber dam placed (OptraDam®), a matrix, wedge and ring were inserted (V4 Triodent). The enamel was etched with phosphoric acid (Total Etch) and then rinsed with water (Fig. 2). Subsequently, the adhesive (Adhese® Universal) was applied with the help of the new VivaPen delivery form and carefully scrubbed into the tooth structure of the entire cavity for 20 s (Fig. 3).

Next, the solvent was evaporated until a shiny immobile film resulted. Then, the material was light-cured using a Bluephase® Style third-generation curing light Tetric EvoFlow­Bulk Fill was applied to the proximal box and cavity floor. Initially, the material was as translucent as most other flowable bulk-fill materials. This translucency makes it difficult to mask discolourations (Fig. 4).

w w w. i v o c l a r v i v a d e n t . c o . u k


Figure 5 shows how the translucency altered in the course of the curing process and the material started to mask the discolourations underneath it. Then, a final composite layer of Tetric EvoCeram Bulk Fill was applied. Excess composite was carefully removed and the filling contoured to an adequate anatomical shape prior to undergoing final polymerisation (Fig. 6). This was all accomplished in a single step, as most of the cavity had already been filled before with Tetric EvoFlow Bulk Fill. After final curing, the restoration was polished with OptraPol. Then, Fluor Protector S was applied. The completed restoration rather closely resembles the natural tooth structure. It is virtually impossible to detect the margins from the occlusal and frontal view (Fig 7). The X-rays show the excellent radiopaque properties of both materials, i.e. the flowable and sculptable variant (Figs 8a and b).

Conclusion To sum up, the “bulk-fill technique” using Tetric EvoFlow Bulk Fill and Tetric EvoCeram Bulk Fill allows us to be more efficient with almost no compromises compared to the conventional layering technique. The C-factor is no longer an issue due to the shrinkage stress relievers. As expected, marginal gaps do not occur more frequently and are not larger compared to the conventional layering technique. Application is clearly quicker and the esthetic effect is in most cases similar to that of conventional composites. The differences in the translucency of materials for conventional posterior composite restorations are no longer of relevance due to the Aessencio technology. This sets a new standard in this group of composite.

Q&A

BLUEPHASE STYLE QUESTION & ANSWER WITH MINESH PATEL

WATCH THE VIDEO HERE

Ivoclar Vivadent’s Bluephase Style has been launched in a sleek and stylish matte black finish. The best-selling curing lights have an output of 1,200 mW/cm2 and a Polywave LED which optimally cures all types of dental photo-initiators and materials. They are used in numerous clinical studies as well as being ranked top by independent and renowned test institutes. Cosmetic dentist, Dr. Minesh Patel, has recently been experimenting with the Bluephase Style Black Edition. We visited him at his private practice in Thames Ditton to hear what he has to say about the popular curing light.

How would you compare the Bluephase Style to other curing lights? I’ve used similar types of light curing units in the past and what I found with this unit is that it doesn’t overheat. I’ve had a similar type of unit before and what I found when I’ve been using it constantly throughout the day, sometimes it did short-circuit because it was overheating but so far using this unit constantly day to day it’s been performing pretty well with no loss in intensity and no loss in battery life.

w w w. i v o c l a r v i v a d e n t . c o . u k


What have you liked about the Bluephase Style? In particular, I’ve been really impressed with the general ergonomics and style of the unit, it has an easy-to-hold handle and my nurses found it very comfortable to use. Also, the style and length of the curing tip is ideal, it’s around 10mm which is great for getting to those posterior teeth and inter-proximal regions, the curve of the light handle itself is ideally suited to reaching the back of the mouth. One of the good things about it is the multiple curing modes, you can have a 10 second, 20 second, 15 second and 30 second, so this is quite useful when doing quick-tack curing of e.max bonded restorations or your final increments of your posterior composite.

What results have you experienced since using the light? I have done a few tests on Typodont teeth where I have actually tested the surface hardness after curing with this light compared to the one I used before and it was surprising to see even on the ten second cure, you could feel an increase in surface hardness of the restoration. Another thing I liked about the design was the ability to use it as a wired mode because often we work in a practice with multiple different dentists and sometimes the unit might not be fully charged, so if this is the case you can un-clip the battery and then you can plug it directly into the mains power point so you can use it through the mains charging port as well which can be quite handy.

What would you say to someone who was considering purchasing a Bluephase Style? When buying a new curing light, we must think of it as an investment. We’re using this piece of kit day in and day out, so you must think about the benefits it has to our patients. There are cheaper units on the market, however we can’t guarantee that they are actually curing the composite as well as stated. With this unit, there are a lot of studies showing that it does have a broad spectrum of wavelength and it is a very powerful light so it is a good investment and my composites will be fully cured after using it.

THE 5-SECOND ‘TURBO CURE’ ALONE IS A GAME CHANGER After purchasing Ivoclar Vivadent’s Bluephase Style 20i, Dr Suraj Dhanda has been immensely impressed with both the speed and the predictability of this top-of-the-range curing light. Read what he has to say below:

In the past, I had always worked with ‘standard’ light cures, layering the composite in increments and curing for 20 seconds at a time. But with large restorations, this was becoming far too time-consuming and even when using bulk fill composites, I felt frustrated with how long they were taking. In came the Bluephase Style 20i. A late Christmas present to myself, but well worth the investment. Using the 5 second ‘Turbo cure’ alone has been a game changer and tack-curing crowns and bonding an adhesive bridge are too, a cinch. To be honest, I still cure my bond for 10 seconds with the Turbo setting (I’m just too cautious), but my overall treatment time has reduced by around 10-20%. This may not sound like a huge amount but it has definitely given me more freedom in my diary. The best part of the Bluephase isn’t necessarily the speed, but the predictability! The number of my patients suffering from postoperative sensitivity has dropped massively. Reading into this, I realised just how much I had underestimated the relation between complete depth of cure and post-op sensitivity and failure of resin restorations. My understanding of light cures was that they are created equally and simply branded differently, but making the move from a traditional light cure unit to the Bluephase Style 20i has made my working-day so much more efficient. I can now perform my restorations quicker, improving my hourly rate without increasing my fees; and now I don’t think I could work so well without it. Dr. Suraj Dhanda qualified from Manchester Dental Hospital in 2009, and has since undertaken a postgraduate Certificate in Restorative dentistry and received a Diploma in Postgraduate Dental Studies with Merit, from the University of Bristol. In 2014, Suraj become Principle Dentist at Foley Dental & Implant Centre in Kidderminster. Having worked in both NHS and Private Practice for a number of years, his main interests lie in Cosmetic Dentistry and he prides himself on keeping up-to-date with the latest advancements in dentistry to provide the best quality of care to his patients.

HIGHLIGHT

HARMONIOUS RESULTS WITH IPS E.MAX ZIRCAD MT MULTI The polychromatic IPS e.max ZirCAD MT Multi discs provide an ideal blend of high strength and natural aesthetics. Their exceptional properties are based on two decisive factors: the special material composition and the integrated progression of shade and translucency. Unlike other zirconia discs available on the market, IPS e.max ZirCAD MT Multi is composed of two different basic materials: 4Y-TZP with medium translucency (MT) and 5Y-TZP with high translucency (HT). The unique combination of these two components provide the discs with an optimum brightness in the dentin area and high translucency in the incisal area. In addition, the discs offer a high flexural strength of 850 MPa (typical mean value) and are suitable for the fabrication of three-unit bridges in the posterior region (Type II, Class 4 material). 5Y-TZP

EMBRACING THE DIGITAL EVOLUTION IN REMOVABLE PROSTHETICS Eric Kukucka, DD, explains the step-by-step process of restoring an edentulous patient, from initial preliminary records to the final prosthesis, using the Ivoclar Digital Denture System. Calling it a fundamental change to his approach to denture fabrication, the system consists of the CAD software for scanning and design, digital denture materials, innovative tools and workflow options and a CAM platform that gives the user total control.

Appointment 1 Clinical Steps

Preliminary impressions are taken using an AccuDent XD thermoplastic stock tray in conjunction with AccuDent XD impression material. You can also use Virtual XD PVS, which is more suitable for those without access to a scanner due to the dimensional stability of the material. (All three are Ivoclar Vivadent products.)

26

Preliminary jaw relation record is taken using the Ivoclar Vivadent Centric Tray.

w w w. i v o c l a r v i v a d e n t . c o . u k


Occlusal plane: The Centric Tray is used in conjunction with the UTS CAD, a tool similar to a Fox Occlusal Plane used to capture the patient’s occlusal plane. The planes of the instrument are aligned with the patient’s Camper’s plane and the bipupillary line, and the instrument’s numeric values are recorded and transferred to the design software. The maxillary and mandibular impressions, Centric Tray bite and UTS CAD measurements are sent to the laboratory.

Laboratory Steps

The trays are milled using the ProArt CAD Try-in Disc. These trays are designed to have a uniform relief of 2mm, allowing me to incorporate the final impression material for the functional impression that will be taken.

If preferred, wax occlusal rims can be milled using the ProArt CAD Wax Disc.

Appointment 2 Clinical Steps

Functional impressions: Using Virtual XD PVS material, functional impressions are taken. The initial impression is done using heavy body around the borders followed by a light body wash of the entire tissue-bearing surface.

Custom Impression Trays: The maxillary and mandibular impressions and Centric Tray records are scanned with the 3Shape D900 scanner and brought into the Ivoclar Vivadent Digital Denture Professional Add-on software. The scans are merged and virtual models are displayed on the screen; the UTS CAD measurements are input into the software to orient the virtual models to the virtual UTS CAD and the patient’s Camper’s plane and bipupillary line. Custom closed-mouth impression trays are designed and the virtual Gnathometer CAD centric recording device is incorporated into the design of the trays.

w w w. i v o c l a r v i v a d e n t . c o . u k

27


Scan and design: The final maxillary and mandibular functional impressions and centric record are scanned as one piece. The virtual models and bite registration are displayed and the UTS CAD measurements are reentered into the software to verify the occlusal plane. The desired denture teeth and occlusal scheme are selected and all 28 teeth appear in the virtual model setup in bilateral balanced occlusion. The setup can be adjusted by moving individual teeth to create the desired aesthetics. UTS CAD record and bite registration: The UTS CAD is positioned between the maxillary and mandibular trays to reconfirm the bipupillary line and Camperâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s plane measurements. The UTS CAD is removed and the Gnathometer CAD components are snapped onto the trays so the bite can be taken.

The gingiva is placed and contoured using the wax modeling tool. I also have the ability to replicate the natural rugae and create a base thickness.

The bite registration is fixed in place by injecting Virtual Bite registration material between the upper and lower rims.

Try-in: Using the ProArt CAD Try-in disc, a fully functional monoblock try-in is milled. If a wax try-in is desired, it can be milled using the ProArt CAD Wax disc; this option also allows you to invest and process the final denture using conventional methods such as IvoBase or Ivocap injection processing.

Appointment 3 There is also the option to take the bite registration using the milled Wax Rim.

Clinical Steps

Tooth and shade selection: I selected Phonares II B82 with Phonares II Lingual.

Laboratory Steps

Try-in verification of aesthetics and phonetics: In this case, I used a monoblock try-in. A layer of wax was added to the tissue area to differentiate the gingival margin and the apex of the tooth to facilitate patient acceptance. After getting the patientâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s approval on the aesthetics, function and phonetics, no modifications to the try-in are required. I then proceed to finalising the prosthesis.

Laboratory Steps

Appointment 4

Milling the final denture: The software splits the final design file into two parts - the denture base and the denture teeth - and then you have two fabrication options for the final prosthesis: the oversize milling process (see below for more details) or using premanufactured denture teeth, which is the process I used for this case.

Clinical Steps The prosthesis is delivered to the patient, at which time all centric and eccentric contacts are assessed. As you can see, the patient is very pleased with the prosthesis.

Using the IvoBase CAD disc, one side of the denture base is milled with the tooth sockets into which premanufactured denture teeth are individually bonded using IvoBase CAD bond. The disc is then re-inserted into the mill to finalize the intaglio and basal surface. The prosthesis is separated from the disc and the excess bonding material is cleaned with a dental handpiece and polished for delivery. This image shows the final prosthesis with a bonded tooth workflow. To enhance aesthetics, the gingiva is characterised using SR Nexco.

The Oversize Milling Process Renders a Virtually Monolithic Denture As part of its Digital Denture System, Ivoclar Vivadent has developed a unique patent-pending method, the “Oversize Milling Process”, to mill the final denture. It incorporates a milled monolithic arch of denture teeth, reduces labor time and increases the strength of the prosthetic teeth. This workflow is also ideal in situations involving reduced interocclusal space, where the bonded teeth would typically penetrate through the intaglio drastically; immediate dentures; and both removable and fixed implant restorations. Using the Ivoclar Digital Professional Add-on Software and a mill with Ivoclar Digital CAM V4 software, the denture base is milled from the IvoBase CAD disc to approximately 80% of its final size with the tooth sockets milled to their final precise size. The next step is to mill the SR Vivodent CAD, a disc made of DCL (Double Cross Linked) resin-material and approved for the fabrication of permanent denture teeth. A monolithic tooth arch is milled to approximately 80% of its final size with the tooth necks milled to their final size so the arch precisely fits into the sockets of the denture base. The tooth arch is then cut from the disc and bonded to the denture base using the Ivobase CAD Bond. The combined tooth arch and denture base disc is milled again to final size to clean up the excess bonding material and fine tune the occlusion, creating a final denture that’s virtually monolithic.

IPS Style The patented metal-ceramic material IPS Style offers dental labs maximum efficiency, easy handling and lifelike aesthetics. This is the first material in the history of dental ceramics to contain oxyapatite crystals. These crystals reflect a high amount of incident light and therefore give restorations a natural-looking depth. Oxyapatite crystals are contained in all the shaded components, ranging from the opaquer to the incisal materials. This allows the translucency or opacity of the restoration to be controlled as needed. The additionally contained leucite and fluorapatite crystals and the coordinated glass phases impart this low-fusing mixed-glass ceramic with unique handling and optical properties. Benefits • Optimised shrinkage behaviour and therefore high stability during the firing of the materials • Versatile modelling properties and individualised handling of the layering materials • Oxyapatite crystals for lifelike translucency and depth effect Indication • Conventional single and multiple layer veneering ceramic for the most popular dental alloys (including electroplating) in the CTE range of 13.8 – 15.2 x 10-6/K (25 – 500°C) • Veneers on refractory die material IPS Style comprises components for single and multiple layer techniques. The materials are all matched to the stains and glazes of the versatile IPS Ivocolor assortment.

Furncae blog post

So, you need a new furnace? But you’re uncertain about the model. What should you take into consideration when buying a new furnace? The selection is vast and making a decision can be difficult, but it doesn’t have to be. We have outlined the following five considerations to save you time and money and will hopefully make your choice much easier.

1. Firing behaviour and firing quality The most important aspect in a dental furnace is the way in which it will influence the firing behaviour and firing quality of ceramics. The temperature within the furnace should be evenly distributed and a furnace should be equipped with QTK muffle technology and a reflecting floor to help spread the heat evenly throughout the firing chamber. In addition, automatic double range temperature calibration involving two melting points (680 and 962° C) will ensure accurate firing of high and low-fusing ceramics. These are ideal prerequisites for achieving the best possible ceramic firing results

2. Infrared – a sensor for successful results If you’re afraid that a lack of process reliability in firing procedures could harm the consistency of the quality you aim to offer, then a furnace with built-in infrared technology will offer you peace of mind. This type of technology will allow you to achieve more reliable and in some cases faster firing results, thereby increasing your efficiency. Best of all, you will benefit from the advantages offered by the infrared technology during the preheating of the ceramic in particular. The pre-drying process controlled by the IRT feature will reduce the risk of cracks occurring in the ceramic during the closing process.

3. Handling – as easy as possible Is the furnace you have been using too fiddly and difficult to handle? In that case, perhaps you should be looking for an easy-to-use and intuitively operated model. We recommend looking for a furnace with a large, movable colour touchscreen, which will allow you to operate the unit without any fuss, using the same type of icon controls which you know from your mobile phone.

FIVE CRITERIA TO CONSIDER WHEN CHOOSING A DENTAL FURNACE

Furncae blog post

4. Energy-saving function: for the benefit of the environment Are you looking for a furnace that offers you helpful extras for greater flexibility and freedom? Two examples are presented below: You may want to look at a furnace that has an energy-saving function. Certain furnaces automatically switch over to a stand-by mode to save up to 40% energy. All you have to do is press a button and you are on your way to saving electricity and using other valuable resources efficiently and responsibly. In the process, you will protect the environment and reduce your electricity bill at the same time. Long-lasting, robust technology with high-quality components will ensure a long life and a good return on investment. As a result, Ivoclar Vivadent extends a warranty of up to three years on the company’s equipment.

5. Shade determination – leave nothing to chance Do you sometimes have the feeling that shade determination with a conventional shade guide is not always 100% correct? There is a way around this problem. Some furnace models can actually help with the shade selection process. The dentist takes a picture of the selected shades and the natural teeth with a smartphone and sends it to the laboratory. This is particularly useful when the dental practice and the laboratory are quite far apart and the patient may not be able to go to the laboratory to have the tooth shade determined. The DSA (Digital Shade Assistant) software of the furnace determines the final tooth shade, which is then reproduced in the ceramic. The DSA system does the work for you and minimises the risk of selecting an incorrect tooth shade.

Conclusion: If you are worried about how to finance the perfect furnace, you should know that excellent furnaces are available in a variety of categories and you don’t have to choose the most sophisticated model. Try to establish the features that are indispensable to you, the price you can afford and are willing to pay. Good firing behaviour and easy handling are the paramount features. Other than that, we are sure that good judgement will guide you. Ivoclar Vivadent have a variety of dental furnace offers available until 31st January 2019. please turn over.

IPS EMPRESS CAD MULTI Featured in:

The SKYN Concept has been running for almost five years and well-established in 13 countries. It was first introduced after Dr Paulo Kano had the idea to copy natural teeth manually and Co-Developer of Digital Smile Design, Livio Yoshinaga, introduced a digital format, bringing this notion to life. Livio wanted to create a digital database of natural teeth so there wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be a need to recreate or sculpt the teeth with a mouse. Livioâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s idea has since been developed by a team, including Tautvydas Butkus and Dr Robbie Hughes, under the concept of being able to replicate SKYN to others and to scale up the art of dentistry, which is not sculpting the teeth by hand but copying the nature through the database.

From left to right Livio Yoshinaga, co-developer of SKYN Concept Fabricio Guarnieri, Head of Clinical Education

We spoke to Tautvydas Butkus, who joined Livio and the SKYN movement over 18 months ago. Tautvydas owns Smile Design Laboratory as well as SKYN Lab UK, he also runs International courses and is speaking next at the SKYN International Symposium in Barcelona. With immense experience in Digital Dentistry, Tautvydas had his own vision on how to assist Livio to design, develop and improve the SKYN concept and technique. Here Tautvydas talks us through the benefits of this to both dentists and patients, as well as how to be amongst the first UK dental professionals to gain official certification.

In the vast field of dentistry today, what is SKYN concept and who is it for?

From left to right Tautvydas Butkus and Dr Robbie Hughes help to form the SKYN Concept Team.

SKYN Concept is a complete digital workflow, designed for and performed by dentists in regards to all clinical procedures as well as the Lab protocol. It advises the dentist on how to organise and operate their dental practise. Complete with a step-by-step process; from diagnosis, planning and selling as well as executing the clinical steps to deliver precise and high quality digital dentistry.

How does the SKYN concept benefit the dentist? The major benefit for dentists is that they will no longer be depending on time-consuming processes to order teeth or restorations. The digital protocol will deliver high quality at a higher speed, this will also affect their costs as the digital manufacturing process is much simpler and demands less people. Dentists will also benefit by offering a totally new experience for their patients, a non-conventional environment from the start as the first visit is conducted in the Design Room. Faster turnover and higher quality will deliver a much more enjoyable relationship with their digital laboratory.

How else does this benefit the patient? For the patient, the major rewards are the quality of restoration and time in which they will be treated. Digital is more predictable than hand-made restorations and patients can now participate in the design process by choosing their style of teeth.

What is unique about the SKYN Concept compared to alternative workflows? Starting from answering the phone, SKYN Concept focuses on delivering health instead of disease, this means aesthetics, although most of our patients also need a better bite/occlusion. It is through aesthetics that dentists can improve their communication. Surgeries and invasive procedures will be better accepted if their patient is fully motivated. The workflow continues with an Initial scan, where just 1 photo and 1 video is enough. Mock-up design in the computer will be delivered in less than 48hs, and after prepâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, the final restorations will be delivered in a maximum of five days. Straightforward protocol, fully digital and much more predictable.

How do you educate dentists who want to become clinically certified? Our first UK SKYN Certification course: Art & Technology in Digital Technology, took place over three days in June earlier this year with our next one in November. This takes place at Dr Robbie Hughesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s practice, Dental Excellence UK, as Robbie teaches the clinical side of SKYN. The first day is based around theoretical lectures and a live patient first visit. The following two days is practical and delegates will need to perform hand-on sessions in different areas whilst we treat the same patient from day 1 to show you every step of the process. Upon completion, we will officially certify you as a SKYN Certified Clinician. To find out more about SKYN Concept or book on to their next course: Art & Technology in Digital Dentistry, 23rd-25th November, please visit: www.skynlab.co.uk
