Quintessence of Dental Technology 2021/2022

Series: QDT Yearbook, Volume 44

$285.45 ex GST

QDT 2021/2022 introduces new digital concepts and novel treatment strategies that are sure to inspire the dental technician and restorative clinician. New this year are links to informative videos to give readers a dynamic representation of the new techniques presented. Original articles in this year’s volume describe the digital alveolar support technique, digital impression strategies for more predictable final restorations, a modified All-on-4 concept that retains teeth for natural dentofacial esthetics, and a new crown-lengthening approach for optimal soft tissue healing. “Biomaterials Update” explores gradient multilayered zirconia for expanding the indication of monolithic zirconia to the esthetic zone. These are but a sampling of the articles in this beautifully produced annual publication.
