In the upcoming seminar we will discuss how to:
· Manage time more effectively and achieve higher patient satisfaction;
· Become more productive and get the best out of your working day;
· Reduce the time and expense of redo, extra parts and managing client expectations;
· Network with other attendees after the seminar;
· How to manage clinical cases using direct impression technique (clinical cases presentations).
The Seminar is to be held on 25th of September 2015, at The Holiday Inn Pointe Claire:
• Arrival time is at 9:15am for registration and refreshments
• Seminars will end at 12:00 pm including informal networking
• Minimal disruption to your working day
One question which came up was “If a person did not use the G-cuff, what would the typical result be?” In other words, what do you believe is the #1 benefit to the product?
Here is the answer on the most frequently asked question. Lately I was approached by an American dental supply company Practicon Dental Supply, and here is my answer:
Taking an accurate impression isn't an easy task, but once it’s taken, it is handled with an extreme care and delicacy. Unfortunately, these cautions are not so effective because when the impression is prepared for making a cast, some important irreversible changes produced. The installation of analogs involves pushing, twisting and rocking. The forces are way beyond what the impression can mechanically withstand. Once the deformations have produced, no matter how accurate we proceed with the further steps, the failure of the restoration is inevitable.
In the last 10 years, numerous studies were done on that subject and each and every one of them spotted problems of accuracy due to transfer impression. There was absolutely no solution to the problem, until we developed the G-Cuff. Now it is possible to take accurate impression without using transfers.
Today, G-Cuff is the only device on the market that allows achieving a gingival retraction around abutments without causing any damage to the tissues or the implants. It is also the only device that creates a 100% dry environment around the abutment allowing either digital clear scanning or accurate silicon impression. Additional important feature of G-Cuff is to create a physical barrier preventing the cements and adhesives from invading the tissue.
Every dentist knows that osseo integration of implants is the only one small part of the task, but the main part of the success depends on preserving the bone and preventing the implant from losing support in the long run. Taking transfers out from the impression process makes it possible.
G-Cuff is a multipurpose implant accessory with a unique size succession that makes it universal and compatible with almost any implant brand and system. Main features include:

Taking an accurate impression isn't an easy task. Once the impression is inspected and approved we handle it with an extreme care and delicacy. The reason for that is the vulnerability of the impression material that can easily suffer irreversible changes. Unfortunately our cautions are not so effective. Because when the impression is prepared for making a cast horrible thing happen. The installation of the analog involves pushing, twisting and screwing. The force is way beyond what the impression can mechanically withstand. Once the deformation has produced no matter how digital and how accurate we are, the failure of the restoration is inevitable.
There is no solution for these problems other than stop taking impressions with transfers.
New technologies require adjustment in work methods. However this not always happens. The purpose of the shoulder preparation is to be able to identify the the prominent line of the abutment. It is also known that shoulder abutments suffer from poor marginal fit. CAD/CAM technologies allow margin identification without having shoulder.
Wouldn't it be wiser to renounce the shouldered abutments when it comes to implant restoration?
