EP061: Non-Authentic Implants Components and Screwmentable Restorations


In this show I interview my friend and trusted Implant Rep, Scott Oyler from Nobel Biocare.  We discuss the problem of non-authentic dental implant components and the reasons behind their rise in use and the resulting problems.  Many times the restorative dentist is not aware that their restorations are made up of non-authentic components.  We also discuss Screwmentable restorations, defining this animal and chat about the indications and pearls of use.

EP054: QOD, Part 2 of Great by Choice, Complications from Coronectomy, F150 vs Cement Truck

Interesting Case ButtonThis week starts with little message about why a woman’s mind is cleaner than a man’s. I then go into part 2 of Great by Choice by Collins. Productive paranoia and the 20-mile march are discussed. I then go into an article review that discusses the risks with coronectomy or partial removal of lower third molars and why one would consider this and what can happen. This article is directly applicable to any dentist who sees patients with third molars.

The interesting case is a must see! This gentleman crashed head on to a cement truck while driving his F150 and sustained a severe naso orbital ethmoid fracture. I discuss the key elements of the surgery and repair and show some killer pictures. You don’t want to miss these!

ThInteresting Case Buttonis week starts with a quote by Don Marquis on procrastination. I then review an article discussing carotid artery calcifications found on CBCT scans.

I love Jim Collins’ work and this book on Great by Choice starts this week and is really a great read and review if I do say so myself! I have an interesting case of a young male patient who was, (minding his own business), skateboarding and fell and broke his jaw in two places and managed not to get any extra oral cuts on his face. I show some cool 3D scan of his bilateral mandible fracture and the final panorex fixed.
