Foundational periodontal surgery knowledge is essential for every dentist practicing simple procedures. When you extract teeth, you’ll know how to manage the extraction socket and how to place an immediate implant. When treating deep caries, discover how to lengthen surgical crowns in order to place restorations. Additionally, practicing soft tissue grafts around implants and teeth will steer you in the right direction.
- How-to manage extraction sockets
- Discuss procedures for successful immediate implant placements
- Review key steps for surgical crown lengthening
- Create best practices for soft tissue grafting

Tooth wear is one of the most obvious manifestations of underlying functional issues.
There is nothing more fun and rewarding than creating a new smile for someone that is in need. Yet many of the patients who are driven towards cosmetic dentistry, have an unattractive smile, because of underlying functional issues.
Learn how to make restorative treatment as predictable as possible.
Prosthetic treatment of adult patients often requires prior orthodontic preparation. With the loss or wear of teeth, they change their position. To make restorative treatment as predictable as possible and minimally invasive, previous orthodontic treatment is recommended. During the webinar, Dr. Robert will present on the basis of complex cases treated every day in the Stankowscy & Białach Dentistry office in Poznan, Poland and what complex orthodontic treatment looks like.
Harmonizing shades for indirect or direct restoration of limited treatment in the esthetic zone requires a mastery of understanding color, the optics of teeth and communication with photography. By determination of specific color coordinates of a shade, restoration materials can be selected that greatly reduce the need for interpolation by both the clinician and the laboratory technician.
- Understanding the objective determination of color coordinates in selecting a shade
- Understanding the eLab protocols in image capture
- Understanding the value of the calibration of images clinically with images recorded on the lab bench to facilitate a virtual try in
Digital photography is one of the most important tools you could have in your toolbelt for aesthetic dentistry. If you think about it, an esthetic case starts with a photo and it ends with a photo. But are you taking the proper photos to showcase your work in the best light? There are two common errors that I see with dental photography.

The gingiva are what's draping over our teeth or creating the scallop to showcase our beautiful porcelain work. So let's try to simplify this into three components.
