But it's actually taken off hugely for the management of white spot lesions anteriorly. I've been using icon resin infiltration for a few years now, and I've had some pretty good results. Jaz's Introduction:And so this stuff, this resin that infiltrates into these white patches, like our guest Linda Greenwell, the way she beautifully describes it with her soothing voice is that the white patch is like an air bubble, and she explains that analogy wonderfully throughout this episode. And it seems to be a really great, minimally invasive way to manage white patches, either after orthotics or MIH or of any origin. Hello, Protruserati. I'm Jaz Gulati and welcome back to another episode of the Protrusive Dental Podcast. That's right. We got Linda Greenwell back again after that amazing episode about the rules around whitening for under 18. If you haven't seen that, do check it out because it does tie in well with this episode because one of the things that Linda will teach us is the importance of tooth whitening before doing resin infiltration. In fact, Linda leaves no stone unturned. Every single micro step and the nuances and considerations, and even the troubleshooting. What if things don't go to plan? It's covered so comprehensively, so beautifully that I think DMG, the company that makes the stuff will probably host this podcast episode on their own website. We also answer burning real world questions such as, do you have to use rubber dam for this technique? And can you use any composite, like sometimes you actually have to have composite at the end of it.

Occlusion on Class IV Composite Restorations – PDP150
37:41What should the occlusion look like when you are restoring or replacing a Class IV restoration? This question is so basic yet so complex which is often not talked about enough. We go on all these composite courses and talk about the layering, but we don't talk enough about how to put the principles of occlusion into action. In this episode, Dr. Ibrahim will be talking about how Class IV Restorations can be optimised to get a long term predictable result.

Bruxism and the Airway – PDP149
39:56Occlusal appliances are commonly prescribed for the management of Bruxism - but they might be doing more harm than good if you have not screened for an airway issue. Dr. Aditi Desai discussed the link between airway and bruxism- could an airway problem cause bruxism? Why is it advised NOT to have a standard occlusal appliance if there is an airway issue? Did you know there are three levels of diagnosis for Sleep Bruxism? The 'Possible' Bruxist, the 'Probable' Bruxist and the 'Definite' Bruxist - in this episode Dr. Aditi Desai who also featured in PDP 139 on sleep disordered breathing and sleep apnea, will explain this and when it may be relevant to sleep apnoea. https://youtu.be/DozqYGEPNxY Watch PDP149 on Youtube The Protrusive Dental Pearl: Parafunctional Screening Sheet - A simple PDF that you can look for in terms of your extra-oral examination, intra-oral examination and the history - to give a clue that a patient might be a bruxist in just 2 minutes - download below: Parafunctional-ScreenDownload Download and Sign in to the Protrusive App on iOS and Android and head over to the freemium version of this episode and on The Protrusive Vault for those Protrusive Premium members (where you can get full CE or CPD Certificate by answering a few questions) Highlights of this episode 5:21 The Protrusive Dental Pearl6:28 Dr. Aditi Desai’s Introduction9:17 Airway in Dentistry12:49 Lack of studies with regards to diagnosing sleep bruxism16:32 Signs to look for to a possible bruxist and how to communicate with them27:01 Nomenclature of sleep bruxism30:51 Learning points to assess airway35:43 Cases that caused the patient to become apnoeic Get in touch for different Board of Sleep Medicine: UK: British Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine (BADSM)USA: American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine (AADSM)Australia: Australian Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine If you enjoyed this episode, you may also like Airway – Dentistry’s Elephant in the Room with Prof Ama Johal
Apicoectomy Tutorial – When, Why and How – PDP148
55:00You're faced with a beautiful crown with what seems like a decent root filling - but there's an apical infection present. Is the answer always endodontic re-treatment? When should we instead consider apical surgery so we can clear the infection WITHOUT drilling through the crown or having to dismantle posts? In this episode, specialist endodontist Dr. Peter Raftery and his associate Dr. Manpreet Dhesi will be talking about the Apicoectomy procedure that can be used to treat root-filled teeth using a 'retrograde' approach.

Let's face it, nothing in dentistry is a hundred percent predictable, and sometimes we are confronted with a scenario such as a beautiful central incisor crown and it's a root filled tooth, or worse yet a tooth and incisor, usually with a long thick post inside of it. Jaz's Introduction:Now, just because it looks good on the radiograph doesn't mean it was a good quality x-ray. We all know that. But anyway, let's say it looks like a decent root filling. There are no voids in it, and now you're really questioning whether it's really feasible to go down a root canal re-treatment, or is there another option? And sometimes that other option, which really comes into play in these scenarios is an apicoectomy where a flap is raised, the infection is curetted, and a bit of the root, a bit of the apex is chopped away, and then boney healing takes place. Now this is known as microsurgical endodontics. It used to be done a lot by oral surgeons in the UK at least many years ago. And now endodontists have reclaimed this territory and suggest that actually this is the way we do it to get high predictability. And that's exactly what we're got to discuss in this episode. Hello, Protruserati. I'm Jaz Gulati. I'm joined in this episode by Dr. Peter Raftery,

Jaz's Introduction:The patient will not go ahead and that's a disservice to the patient because you have your heart in the right place. You've trained for this. You've been on additional courses, but if you can't convey that to the patient, then it's an absolute waste. Hello, Protruserati. I'm Jaz Gulati. Welcome to this Interference Cast, this non-clinical interruption to help you grow as a dentist and do more dentistry on the right patients and get better outcomes. That's what it's all about with Protrusive, as has evolved over the last three years. The key word of this episode, that episode title I really purposely picked it is RECOMMEND, right? Recommending treatment plans with confidence. And I think the word recommend is so, so key because it's something that you, as a clinician, you earned the right and you'll see later in this episode why I use these specific words. You've earned the right, you've done their full examination. You've got all this training behind you, now you can make a recommendation to a patient. And I think a lot of dentists are guilty of not recommending. What I mean by that, I'll just expand a bit, is what if you've just finished your examination and instead of recommending something to a patient, instead of that, you are just splurging out. We can do a filling, we can do a sandwich, we can do a crown, we can do an onlay, we can do this, that and the other. And then really you give your patients choice fatigue. And you're not really guiding them, you're not advising them. You're basically like trying to give them all this dental knowledge and letting them decide for themselves. There's something not quite right about that. And the beauty of the word recommend is it empowers you, the dentist, to use all that information that you've gathered during the consultation to come up what is the best plan for that patient? I'm joined today by Prav Solanki. He's now a good friend of mine.
Internal Whitening Protocols Pt2 (Non Vital Bleaching) – PDP147
27.04.2023Following the cliffhanger from Part 1 where the theme was Diagnosis - we now discuss the two main protocols of internal bleaching: the Inside-Outside Bleaching technique and Walking Bleach Technique for non-vital teeth whitening. In this episode Dr. AJ Ray-Chaudhuri discussed how to prevent peroxide gel from entering the root canal system while performing non-vital bleaching. We cover every detail of the procedure and offer step-by-step guidance on how to make a tray, how much to charge patients, which gels to use and much more. https://youtu.be/5Pl238679j4 Watch PDP147 on Youtube Protrusive Dental Pearl: The full protocol workflow - summarised PDF of Part 1 and 2 of this Internal Bleaching Series plus the patient advice sheet AND lab instruction sheet by Dr. AJ Ray-Chaudhuri Click Here to Request the PDFs Download Protrusive App on iOS and Android and Claim your Verifiable CPD/CE by answering a few questions + You can get EARLY ACCESS to the episode + EXCLUSIVE content Need to Read it?

I'm Jaz Gulati, and you are listening to this episode because you've just finished part one and you are pumped to get into the full protocols for internal bleaching where Dr. AJ Ray-Chaudhuri, or you just clicked on. Jaz's Introduction:Because you've got a patient next week who's got a black tooth and you want to follow all the protrusive pearls shared in this full guide on how to actually carry out internal beach treatment, or you are in luck because we cover all those things today. In the previous episode, so part one of internal bleaching we covered about getting your diagnosis right, making sure you've got a really good root canal treatment, and also the difference between a yellow tooth, which is more likely be like a calcific metamorphosis versus an actual non vital tooth. Now, why one will not need a root canal treatment? So if you haven't listened to that one yet, please go back one episode and check that one out. Now towards the end of that episode, I left you on a cliffhanger because you got really saucy. We started talking about barrier materials. Like what material, what restorative materials should you put over your gutta percha before you put your whitening gel, right? Because the logic says that we need to put a barrier to prevent our peroxide gel from actually going into the root canal system. But you know what? I'm going to give you a spoiler now, right? What AJ actually practices is no barrier material, providing you don't have a scope because the problem is like, imagine you don't have a scope and you're going to provide some sort of a barrier. Like have you ever tried placing GIC deep down three millimeters below the CEJ? And how difficult it is not to smear that glass ionomer material all the way up the tubules. Because if you smear them, then how is that whitening gel? How is the proxide gel going to enter the tubules? And that's when you get ineffective whitening. That's when most of the tooth whitenings, but you get a neck that's still discolored. So his argument actually is really good. So we'll listen to that first thing up. But we also talk about my protocol and what I've done as well. We go through every single detail and step-by-step protocol of non-vital bleaching, including tray design,
Internal Whitening Protocols Pt1 (Non Vital Bleaching) – PDP146
31:57Non-vital bleaching or internal whitening comes in many forms, but it's often confusing which exact protocol to adopt. When you learn this technique you can make a HUGE difference to a patient's smile in a minimally invasive manner. Restorative Specialist Dr. AJ Ray-Chaudhuri covered the all-important diagnoses and indications of internal bleaching as well as how to treat tooth calcific metamorphosis (the obliterated pulp). We answer the key question: do you always need to have a root canal treatment present? https://youtu.be/mEHIypt-WW4 Watch PDP146 on Youtube The Protrusive Dental Pearl: When carrying out internal bleaching make sure to clean out the entire pulp chamber especially the necrotic pulp horns - clean the necrotic tissue inside using ultrasonics. Ensure the entire chamber is de-roofed - remember that these are mostly trauma cases and the pulp went necrotic in youth - hence large pulp chambers. No role for Ninja access here! Need to Read it?

It's something that you don't really often get to do, but when you get to do it, you get to make a huge difference to a patient smile. Jaz's Introduction:But there's lots of different ways to do it. It can get very confusing and the first time you come across a case, you end up going online and searching for all the different papers and different techniques out. And you just end up getting confused, which is why I've got this killer two-part series with Dr. AJ Ray-Chaudhuri, restorative consultant. We both discuss the indications, the diagnoses, so basically it's two parts. This first part you listen to right now is going to cover his journey as a restorative consultant. The diagnoses that you can make, like when you have a yellow tooth, and you take a peri-apical radiograph and you observe that, 'Hey, where's the pulp gone? There is no canal anymore.' That's a calcific metamorphosis, right? That's a sclerosed canal, and that can be a discolored tooth. Now, how do you whiten that, and how is that different to an actual non-vital tooth where you actually drill an access cavity if there isn't one already and you whiten the tooth from within the tooth? So your diagnosis is really important. And some of the big questions that we cover are things like, do you always need to have a root canal treatment present? Does that root canal treatment need to be perfect quality, even if the patient is asymptomatic? And then we go on to discuss about which barrier material. Barrier material is something that you put over the gutter percha before you put the whitening gel to whiten the tooth. So these are all the nitty gritty things that we build up to. And in part two next week, wow. That's really going to go into the full protocol for non-vital or internal bleaching. Hello, Protruserati. I'm Jaz Gulati. Those of you who are listening, I probably sound a bit different. And those of you who are watching, yeah, I look in a different place. So, I'm actually in between Reading where I work and live and West London at the moment becau...
Rochette Bridges and Provisional Prostheses for Implants – PDP145
38:41Rochette Bridges are a popular option for interim tooth replacement whilst implants in the aesthetic zone are 'cooking'. In this episode with Dr Pav Khaira we discuss his interim restoration protocols using Rochette Bridges and Dentures, as well as gaining an insight in to custom healing abutments. https://youtu.be/InBOBHfYxEA Watch PDP145 on YouTube Which cement is best for Rochette Bridges? How do you remove them? Ceramic or Composite pontic? When might we consider a Denture instead? We then expand in to soft tissue augmentation at the time of implant surgery to get the best pink aesthetics. This episode is packed full of gems even if you do not place implants - much of the benefits of soft tissue augmentation can be applied to non-implant fixed prosthodontics.

Click below for full episode transcript: Jaz's Introduction: If you've placed an implant or maybe your surgical colleague has placed an implant and now it's come to you as the restorative dentist, and you need to give this patient a tooth because they're not going to go for immediate loading, i.e, they're not going to have the temporary crown on this implant the same day. Jaz's Introduction:We're going to wait some healing, and therefore, how can you give this patient a tooth? It's going to be a denture or a bridge of some sort temporarily. There might be some other ways, but these are the two most common ways to do it. Now, you might have heard of something called a Rochette Bridge. Rochette Bridge is basically like a metal resin bonded bridge with HOLES in it. It's very popular way. A lot of the implant dentists use to TEMPORARILY have a tooth there so that everything can heal, the soft tissue can heal, the implant can osseointegrate, and then you can take off this bridge and continue on with placing a crown for that implant. But there's lots of nuances when it comes to Rochette Bridges. So I've got on Pav Khaira today to talk about Rochette Bridges. Talk about dentures, like how do you make sure the denture's not impinging on the soft tissues and on the healing abutment. Now if all these terms aren't making sense to you, then I'll make sure that Pav breaks down exactly what a healing abutment is. So really is the bare bones of everything and builds you up and we build up all the way towards the end. We talk about soft tissues and how in many cases soft tissue augmentation to get a nice papilla is so important and Pav will share with you a very interesting stat about the number of people that show their papillas. Have a guess, actually, if you don't know this already, when people smile, when our patients smile, what percentage of them will show a papilla? At least a papilla, one papilla anteriorly, right? So what percentage of patients will show papilla, at least.

Like for example, Cony, Cony Caravotas we met in Brighton and also at the Finlay Sutton course. Hope you're doing well. She said that she hasn't done an ID block since 2009, so that was 14 years ago. That is bloody impressive, right? I told you I do about one a month. Coney hasn't done once in 2009. She said, buccal articaine infiltrations all the way. And there were loads of comments just like that about how we're all getting really good results with buccal articaine. But of course, Dr. Wayne Williams suggested that it's only really appropriate for single tooth procedures. But I know many of you, including myself on many occasions, use it for quadrant dentistry in the lower molar. Now, I wouldn't use it, like I said in the previous episode of people with large bones, large heads, big bony exostosis. But for the average person, I think it does work well in my hands, and that's what it's all about. Don't change your technique if something is working well, unless there's more efficiency, more safety involved, or lower cost involved. But if you're not compromising a lot on those areas and something is working well in your hands, I wouldn't change anything about your protocol as long as you're safe, efficient, and cost effective. So more power to anyone who's getting great success with buccal articaine. I personally will say that by putting it in the attached gingiva. Now, something that, @ohheyitsdoctoralbert also said on Instagram is the importance of attached gingiva. I find that the attached gingiva retains it, and probably by going in the attached gingiva I'm entering that coal area that Dr. Wayne Williams talked about in the first episode, and therefore, these em mystery canals, these holes in the mandible to allow our anesthetic to get in the right place.
