Why are you worried about how they're going to pay for their treatment? That's not your worry. That's for someone else to deal with. Jaz's Introduction:Hello, Protruserati. I'm Jaz Gulati and this Interference Cast, we're going to cover the topic of treatment coordinators. Is it right for your practice? We hear from Emma Yates, who is a nurse turned into a treatment coordinator. And a treatment coordinator, if you haven't heard of this term before, is someone who is kind of in between the reception team and the dentist, right? They've got enough clinical knowledge to discuss the pros and cons of different treatment and help the patient in their journey to find out what's the best treatment for them and also help them to pay for their treatment, how to finance it and answer those niggling queries they sometimes have and sometimes patients have to wait some time to hear from the dentist. But that treatment coordinator is a friendly phrase, right? They're not the scary dentist. They're a friendly face. They're an advocate for the patient. And I've seen over the past few years, lots of different practices adopt the treatment coordinator model. Now, I'm not sure if it's just a UK thing or a worldwide thing, but this is definitely becoming more integrated in dental practices. So if you're a principal wondering if this is the right move for you, or if you're maybe a nurse thinking, hey, you know, could I be a treatment coordinator? Or perhaps you're an associate and you like the idea of your practice, having a treatment coordinator, and maybe you can send them this episode to weigh out the pros and cons of it as per the discussion that we have with Emma. So let's join Emma now. And at the end in my outro, I'll let you know how you can claim CPD for this episode. Main Episode:Emma Yates, welcome to the Protrusive Dental Podcast. How are you? [Emma]I'm good. Thank you. How are you? [Jaz]Yes, absolutely brilliant. It's a Saturday. I was working clinical this morning. I've had a couple hours of de stress, but now, I love, I'm doing the bit, which I love speaking to different people, learning, sharing. And today's topic is treatment coordinators of which you are for the past six years. As you told me before we hit the record button, I have so many questions for you, like so many practices could be employing this way of working. And they probably have so many questions. I'd be hesitant for some reason, so many concerns before doing such a big step.

It's a sign of Occlusal Overload. And in this episode, we're going to talk everything related to Fremitus with my good friend, Dr. Mahmoud Ibrahim. Jaz’s Introduction:Hello, Protruserati. I'm Jaz Gulati, and welcome back to another Protrusive Dental Podcast episode. If you're new to the podcast, welcome. Thanks so much for joining us. And if you're a veteran Protruserati, thanks for coming time and time again. We hope to make complex topics in dentistry tangible for you. Protrusive Dental PearlBefore we join the main interview with Dr. Mahmoud Ibrahim, I'm going to give you the Protrusive Dental Pearl, which I always do for every main PDP episode. Today's Protrusive Pearl relates to cramp operations, and in particular, getting better impressions or scans. Look, once you've placed the retraction cord, and I know many people like to use things like Expasyl or Traxodent, which are like the pace systems. I quite like using retraction chords and also in combination with PTFE tape, especially as I do lots of vertical preparations or VertiPreps. Now I have got lots of webinars planned in October. As part of the live series I'm doing for the Protruserati, the premium subscribers, it's going to be VertiPrep for Plonkers. So that's coming soon. And one of the strategies I use to be able to scan subgingivally is once I've got my triple zero cord in place, I will put some PTFE tape over that. But sometimes what can happen is that the gingiva it sulks, right? It sulks on to the PTFE and sometimes even contacts the prep. So when I scan it because the tissues because the gums are touching the preparation it creates a nightmare scenario for my technician who wants that gingiva well out of the way So at that point the pearl the tip i'm giving you is if you've got a laser, fine. Great. Use a laser. If you've got any fancy burrs, use them. But the cheapest thing you can buy is something called a Thermocut Bur.

What are the BEST GUIDELINES ? And on that note, the guidelines we discuss and the advice Emma offers very much based on UK guidelines, specifically the SDCEP guidelines, which I will make available to download below. Jaz's Introduction:And this might be different to those in the US or all around the world. Ultimately, you guys, Protruserati are an international community. So remember that a lot of the advice here is very UK centric, and there are some differences culturally and internationally in terms of guidelines. So just bear that in mind as we discuss Best Management for Children. Hello, Protruserati. I'm Jaz Gulati, and welcome back to the Protrusive Dental Podcast. We're covering a pediatric dentistry theme, which is something that we haven't covered in a long time. And I want to cover something that is really REAL WORLD, something that affects general dentists day in, day out, and children in pain. Like, I hate to see it as a dentist, as a father. I hate to see children patient who are in pain. It's also one of the most stressful things that a dentist can face because it's very difficult to get a good history. It's very difficult to do an exam. Like some children will just not let you examine their mouth properly. So how can you get the best diagnosis? In terms of managing them, there's so many different variables and considerations, which you'll hear about today. We talk about deep caries, reversible pulpitis, irreversible pulpitis, abscesses, and how best to manage those in your patients. But these can vary so much depending on the overall status of the child's oral health, the attitude of the child and the parent, and also how many teeth are actually involved. So remember that this episode is offering guidelines and I'll give you some good information about what to do at the emergency visit, but also how to do a comprehensive exam afterwards. Protrusive Dental PearlThe Protrusive Dental Pearl I have you is related to pediatric dentistry. It's the use of something called Fuji Triage by GC as an alternative to fissure sealants for actually sealing fissures. So let me give you more information about this. Recently I saw my son Ishaan, in the dental chair because he's got these super deep fissures. And I discussed this with Emma in the episode actually. He's got these super deep fissures and every time he eat...

Click below for full episode transcript: Jaz's Introduction: One of my mentors, Dr. Lincoln Harris, once taught me that easy dentistry on a difficult patient is still difficult, and nothing makes our dentistry more difficult than that patient who just can't open, or the patient that keeps closing their mouth. Like, it's impossible to do high quality work in that kind of a patient. Jaz's Introduction:Hello, Protruserati. I'm Jaz Gulati, and in this Group Function where we just focus on one theme, today's big topic is "Help! My patient Can't Open Their Mouth!" And you'll be amazed with some physio with some exercises with some training if you like your patient can actually open significantly more allowing you to do better dentistry and allowing the patient to get better outcomes. We're joined today by our first ever Israeli guest Dr. Greenbaum who is a physiotherapist who specialized in the area of TMD and he'll be coming soon to the UK. So I thought ahead of his visit, let's talk about a really important topic that I think is going to help you guys in the real world where our patients are struggling to keep their mouth open. What causes this and how can we get involved either just by yourself or working in tandem with a physiotherapist? Let's join the main episode now and I'll catch you in the outro. Main Episode:Dr. Greenbaum, welcome to the Protrusive Dental Podcast. How are you? [Tzvika]Hey, hi Jaz. I'm very well. Thank you very much. And thank you for inviting me to speak about my favorite topic, which is Rehabilitation of Patients with Temporomandibular Disorders. [Jaz]It's great to be able to help our patients in pain. And this is exactly what it's about, pain and discomfort. And I'm going to really try and extract all the knowledge and experience that you have. But just share with the Protruserati listening right now, what is your background? How did you niche into rehabilitation of temporomandibular disorders and psychogenic and in that area? [Tzvika]Well, my bachelor's degree was back in 2004 in Haifa University in Israel. And after that, I headed up to Australia, South Australia to learn a master's degree in musculoskeletal and sports physiotherapy and a very well-known degree. But in that degree, I started to get into the topic of cervical spine. Upper cervical spine rehabilitation of patients with headaches. It was a new thing for physiotherapists to rehabilitate patients with cervicogenic headac...

Click below for full episode transcript: Episode Teaser: And what you don't want to do is have to cover the costs of somebody else's mistakes. So, with an insurance pool, we put all the good dentists, so to speak, in one pool. And let's call them the distressed dentists, paying 30, 40, 50, 80, 100 grand in another pool. So, there's different risk factors and different prices. So, if something happens in the other pool, it's not having a knock-on effect on yours, so your premium doesn't go up. Whereas with a mutual everyone's in the same pool. So that's why you can be saying, I haven't had a complaint. Why is my indemnity going up, insurance going up every year? Now, obviously some of that's expenses, cost of living, but it's disproportionately high, but it's because you're paying for other people's errors and emissions. Jaz's Introduction:Indemnity vs Insurance. I don't know if it's like a UK thing. I'm kind of sure it is. Although when I was in Singapore, I was with dental protection. So let's give you a bit of background first, right? Indemnity is a bit like the big organizations, mutuals like DDU and dental protection, whereas Insurance are kind of like a newcomer in the last 10 years. There's these different insurance products. So what's the need for these? Well, when I was in Singapore, when I moved from the UK to Singapore, I was paying so much lower to be part of dental protection at the time, like, compared to UK fees, Singapore, it was so much easier to get protected as a clinician. This is because in Singapore at the time, dentists were getting sued way less than they are in the UK, which is nice, and also taxes are lower, which is really cool. Anyway, came back to the UK, and now that I've been paying way less in Singapore, to have to pay what I was getting quoted for with DDU at the time, or Dental Protection, or whoever, It was a bitter pill to swallow. So already I was thinking surely there must be a better way. Why am I a non-implant dentist who hadn't had any complaints at that point? Why am I paying so much so that it covers the high-risk dentist, right? Cause that's the way it works. These mutuals, they work because they've divided all the costs between all the members. And this is why your premium goes up year by year by year, even though you didn't really use their services. That's when insurances came my radar and my friend, Dr. Neel Jaiswal, who's a fantastic conscientious clinician. He started PDI, which is Professional Dental Indemnity. So, I had a chat with him, I went to their evening, I met the underwriters, the lawyers there, and I was very impressed with what he was setting up. But what he taught me and what I learned also from the Facebook groups and dentistry is that, oh, I had this complaint, and my indemnity organization is choosing not to defend me. Now that's a big eye opener, right? Because what we learn now is that these big mutuals, their cover is discretionary. Meaning that should they choose not to defend you, they won't. They're not obligated to. They're not an insurance. Okay.
Ovate Pontics for Bridges – The Complete Guide with Dr Jason Smithson – PDP158

Click below for full episode transcript: Jaz's Introduction: This episode will be the definitive guide to all things OVATE PONTICS. Now, we actually cover bridge pontics in general, and when we qualified from dental school, we only really learned the modified ridgelap or the ridgelap. Jaz’s Introduction:Look, they're okay pontics, they do the job, but they're ugly. Ovate pontics are egg shaped or bullet shaped, and they emerge from the soft tissues, and they look really natural. As well as that, they offer really good cleansability as well. So Ovate Pontic is the best kind of pontic you can aim for. But it's so difficult to find good content online when it comes to Ovate Pontics, until now. I got on, once again, Dr. Jason Smithson, who, to me, is the best dentist in the world. He is amazing. I've been to so many courses. He's taught me so much. And it's just always a pleasure to have him on the podcast. I tried to really extract as much as I could from Jason Smithson during this episode to try and cover a lot of depth, but also a bit more breadth around this topic. What I also did in the editing stages of this episode is I really stacked it with lots of visuals, because sometimes when you talk about topics like this, when it's not visual, it's very difficult to follow along. Now, for all my Protruserati audio listeners, don't worry, all of it can be followed along by audio, but when a visual is really going to enhance the learning, I've put that on the screen. So for those of you who are watching on YouTube or on the app with the premium notes, you're probably going to gain a bit more. So I encourage you if you can make the time to do this, like an on demand webinar kind of thing, right? Just study all the visuals that will really compliment what we're talking about. In this episode, we discussed case selection for ovate pontics and all the nuances, like how deep do you actually go into soft tissues, which kind of soft tissues are suitable. What if you don't have enough soft tissue and everything you have to do to actually develop your pontic site. At the end of the episode we also see the return of Am I Naughty If, because I shared with Jason a shortcut way of working with ovate pontics to try and bypass th...

Now, if you haven't yet listened to the first part of this episode, that's PDP156. Jaz’s Introduction:You should probably start there first because Dr. Devang Patel, our esteemed guest, he talks us through from the very beginning, like how do you assess the site that might be suitable for an implant and what to actually do if someone else's placed implant is coming to you for the restoration. And let me tell you, I learned so much. The episode is called an Idiot's Guide. I'm the idiot, right? So I was learning so much as getting along. He taught us about internal hex, external hex, conical, or butt joints, all these things I was learning about implants. Then we talk about impressions and scanning. And now we're going to be talking about what happens when the lab work comes back from the lab and you're going to assess it. You want to take a radiograph. You're going to actually screw the screw retain crown in. But what are you checking for? Do you have to give local anesthetic, for example? How much talk do you need to give at that point? How do you then restore the screw access hole? And what should be the follow up protocol going forward, as well as the all important troubleshooting? It's really important when you learn a new skill, that you learn about the troubleshooting. So any of the common complications that you can get ahead of it. Protrusive Dental PearlSo just before we go and join Devang for that Part two, I'm going to give you the Protrusive Dental Pearl. It's basically a summary of both these two episodes, so PDP156 and this episode, because I imagine as a learner, it can become quite overwhelming, especially if you're commuting, chopping onions, and then to try and remember and think, you need like an aid memoir.

If you remember Devang, he did a few episodes with us about full mouth reconstruction in 11 appointments and he went through appointment by appointment, and that episode is like a Protrusive Hall of Fame. Jaz's Introduction:In that same style Devang covers over the crosses two next episodes, the Five Different Stages of Restoring the Single Implant Crown. We're going right to the basics, starting from assessment all the way to screwing or cementing your implant crown, and we leave no stone unturned. Hello, Protruserati. I'm Jaz Gulati and welcome back to the Protrusive Dental Podcast. For me, implants are super confusing. When I was in the first few years after qualifying, I did go on some courses to learn about restoring implants, even learning about placing implants. But I just decided it wasn't my bag. It's not what excites me. Orthorestorative excites me, occlusion excites me, and implants are at the moment in my career is not something that I'm spending more energy and time on. I'm doing a lot more TMD now I'm doing restorative but who knows what's in store for my future. But as we know dentistry is a long game and that could change in the future, but I definitely needed to serve my patients better by learning more about implants in general. I think we can all do with foundational knowledge and where better to start than learning about restoring implants which is exactly what Dr Devangkumar Patel will do today. Now, please, no one be offended by the episode title, An Idiot's Guide. If you listen to the end of the episode where we discussed naming of this episode, it's a bit funny actually, but I mean this with the best intentions because actually when you listen to the interview, you'll see that I'm stopping Devang and I'm like, hang on a minute. When you say this, do you mean this? And I'm learning as we're going along. And when we're talking about internal hex and external hex, for me, that just got really confusing. So I made this analogy of like a belly button, like sticky-innie, sticky-outie. So, you'll see lots of Jazz-isms in there about me just trying to break things down, trying to make it tangible.

It is not a replacement for a tooth, because teeth are still the best, but the next best thing for a missing space at least, are IMPLANTS. Now, implants can get very complicated, different stages, surgical, restorative, but the very initial stages is all to do with ossteointegration, which is essentially, in a crude way to describe it, would be the fusing of the implant to a patient's bone. Jaz's Introduction:Or as I like to call it, how long it takes for the implant to cook, so it's ready to accept load. Today on the show, I've got Dr. Pav Khaira on again, he's our resident implant expert and a titanium nerd, and he's going to cover four techniques he uses, and most of these are very quick to act on, very simple, and something that you can apply straight away. One of them does involve you to buy some extra kit, but the reasoning is really solid, and it's something I hadn't heard of before, so it's four ways to BOSST your OSSEOINTEGRATION. That's the success rate overall, and the quality of your osseointegration itself. Like Pav taught me in this episode that most implants, when they're placed, about 56% of the implant is covered by bone, or rather 56% of the implant is actually directly contacting bone. And with his techniques, he's getting that much higher, which he believes results in a longer lasting, more successful implant. So he calls this all super osseointegration. Protrusive Dental PearlNow before we join Pav to reveal those four ways, I've got your Protrusive Dental Pearl. Now please bear with me because I do have an ulcer on the inner side of my upper lip. It's a little bit painful, but the show must go on. And my son is home today because of school holidays. So I'm hoping he doesn't barge in and have to record this all over again, but let's go, let's do our Protrusive Dental Pearl, which is not an implants one. I don't do implants myself, but I can tell you is about COMPOSITE BONDING. Here's a tip I picked up when it comes to anterior composite bonding. You need to evaluate what percentage of your appointment are you going to actually devote to the placement of your composite and what perc...
PDP154 – Post Crowns – Historical Technique or Necessary Solution for Compromised Teeth?
46:16When and why should you use post crowns in contemporary Dentistry? Surely they are a thing of the past? Dr. Dominic Hassall, a restorative consultant, shares valuable insights on restorability and the essential concept of ferrule. He highlights the significance of restorability and the role of fibre posts in dental procedures, emphasising the ferrule effect in crown and onlay preparations. The ferrule effect ensures predictable outcomes by transmitting occlusal forces through the natural tooth structure, reducing the risk of failure. https://youtu.be/zQNReIIJCG8 Watch PDP154 on Youtube Protrusive Dental Pearl: How to Bone Sound for Ovate Pontics -Imagine you have a missing upper lateral incisor, and you want to use an ovate pontic for an aesthetic bridge. To achieve the ideal emergence profile, Jaz demonstrates how to assess gingival thickness using ‘bone sounding’ using a periodontal probe (please see video). This technique helps determine how thick the tissues are overlying the edentulous area and whether an ovate pontic is feasible (or perhaps a connective tissue graft is necessary). Throughout the episode, Dr. Hassall's expertise shines through, making it a must-listen for dental professionals seeking a comprehensive understanding of restorability and ferrule in restorative dentistry.

Now, recently I had Dr. Pasquale Venuti on the show and he had some interesting opinions. He was quite a big advocate of the cast metal post crown in certain scenarios, where today's guest, actually Dr. Dominic Hassall, is well known restorative consultant, has a teaching institute, is a well-established educator, and he's very anti cast post crowns. [Jaz]He's very pro COMPOSITE FIBER POSTS. So you'll find out today what his views are on that. But we take a big, broader view of all things to do with posts in terms of when we should be placing a post. What about restorability in general? If you're thinking about placing a post, then you are also debating, 'Hmm, is this tooth even savable in the first place?' We also cover the very foundational concept of the ferrule, which is so, so important when you're considering if you can rescue a tooth or not. And also in terms of the long term outcomes for post crowns in general. Lastly, if you stick all the way to the end, we talk about this real world factor of communicating fees to your patient, because if your patient needs a root canal retreatment, and a post and a new crown, you're kind of in the implant money territory, you know? So this is like a tough thing to help our patients decide which is the best scenario for their tooth. Hello, Protruserati, I'm Jaz Gulati and welcome back to another Protrusive Dental Podcast episode. Every episode I give you a Protrusive Dental Pearl. Today's Protrusive Dental Pearl before you join the main episode is about bone sounding. So what is bone sounding? There's a couple different scenarios we can use it,
