Articaine ID Blocks and the ‘CIA Technique’ for Local Anaesthetic – PDP143
There is a massive trend of Dentists ditching ID blocks in favour of articaine buccal infiltrations. For many that are still using ID blocks routinely, they are afraid of using Articaine due to fear of paraesthesia. Should we be doing less ID blocks? And when we do, is it ACTUALLY harmful to use articaine or is that a myth? I have to admit, the main reason I heavily switched to buccal articaine was to avoid ID blocks. Dr. Wayne William, our straight-talking, no-BS Prosthodontist guest will bust some myths and improve your daily delivery of safe and effective local anaesthesia. In this episode he taught us the Crestal Intraosseous Approach (CIA), a technique developed by Dr. Wayne to improve our buccal infiltrations. https://youtu.be/LbOxlXIZCkw Check out this full episode on YouTube 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 The Protrusive Dental Pearl: Check out the couple of videos I posted recently on YouTube and on the app https://youtu.be/yFfKVLmSr5Q Robin Hood Dentistry - a careful and well-considered enameloplasty https://youtu.be/3QLby2U_W3E No More High Restorations 2023 Update - Stop Grinding Away Your Composites!

So we need to get rid of that misconception as well. [Wayne]So not going down periodontal ligaments, let's get that one out the way straightaway. There is no such thing. It's a complete misnomer. There is no such thing as a periodontal ligament injection. Get rid of that. [Jaz]So intra ligamentry, as they call it, right? [Wayne]It doesn't exist, doesn't exist. It's complete misnomer. There's a lot of literature to back that statement doesn't- [Jaz]But what about that device, Wayne? You know that, I forgot the name of it. There's Projected Press, what's it called? [Wayne]There's 12. There's 12 of those at least. Yeah, there's 12 of them. Okay. There's Ligmaject, there's Peri-Press, there's Sigma Jet, there's, and so we can carry on. There are 12 at least of those. Quick Sleeper, however, is different. A quick sleeper wants to draw through the cortical bone, which is what I've just told you. We need to get through the cortical plate. So to answer your original question, buccal infiltration is fantastic for single tooth procedures. Jaz's Introduction: There's been a huge trend in dentists doing less and less inferior alveolar nerve blocks and to be fair, I've been part of this, right? I'm actually, I wouldn't say afraid. I'm not afraid of doing ID blocks. I'm just do 'em way less because I'm afraid of some of the POTENTIAL COMPLICATIONS that you see in papers and in opinion articles about the potential risk of paraesthesia and other complications from ID blocks, and therefore I've been a bit put off. So what I did many years ago is I started to do more and more articaine infiltrations, buccally, and to be fair like I told Wayne, Dr.

I'm Jaz Gulati and thanks so much for coming onto the app for part two or what was quite a brilliant part one with Dr. Sandra Hulac. Her energy is just absolutely amazing. Jaz's Introduction:Now, just a recap, we left you on a bit of a cliffhanger last time. We talked about, I asked Sandra about orthodontics. You know, how often does orthodontics come into it? Is it every single time? And the answer she gives is really pragmatic. So you'll hear that or see that in just a few minutes. But I just want to do a bit of a recap, what we talked about last time, right? So, a constricted chewing pattern is someone who really wants to bite here, but the teeth meet together here, so the condyle gets sort of pushed back, if you like. Right. So for this patient, the centric relation is actually further forward. So who's at risk? People who've got upright or retroclined upper incisors, right? And their jaw wants to be further forward, right? Maybe cuz of growth, the jaw wants to be further forward, which is why Sandra said that people who've had orthodontics and upper pre-molars extracted. The maxilla gets smaller if you like, and mandible start continues to grow and those patients may be at risk. So if you see those kind of traits, then maybe we shouldn't be using like a leaf gauge for centric relation on those patients. We should be using like a deprogramming appliance Lucia Jig or a Kois deprogrammer. If you fancy that one because that's what Dr. Sandra does. And what you find with these patients with a CCP is yes, their jaw gets shifted back, but you might get more wear on their edges. And that's not from bruxism. That's because the outside in movement. Right? Their jaw wants to be further forward. Now, this is similar. The cousin of this is the frictional chewing pattern who their condyle isn't getting forced back, right? Their MIP is okay. It's just that as they're chewing the outside in is causing this. So, let's say that's normal, the incisal edges are not worn here. Can you see? They're a bit jaggedy over here, right? It's just, to over here and over here. We see this all the time and let me show you some photos actually on th...

Stop Blaming Bruxism! How to Spot Frictional and Constricted Chewing Patterns (CCP) – PDP141
Do you blame bruxism for every time you observe attrition? As you know, I'm no stranger to occlusal appliances, but often they may be inappropriate for the patient who is causing their wear during FUNCTION and not so much during parafunction. Maybe it’s time for us to start looking at different aetiologies of attrition and this is what the wonderful Dr. Sandra Hulac breaks down for us in this banger of an episode. We also discussed the differences between frictional and constricted chewing patterns, which are often confused with each other. We share some case examples and discuss how to correctly diagnose these types of chewing patterns. https://youtu.be/ao0sqY6lXZ4 Check out this full episode on YouTube 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 The Protrusive Dental Pearl: Acknowledge, understand, and believe the fact that often our patient’s centric relation (CR) is NOT more distal/posterior to their maximum intercuspation (MIP) - it can actually be anterior to their MIP!

Now we know that sounds like a big task and a huge ask, but we did it. I think we did it. OBAB:We did it. We finally made OBAB, Occlusion Basics and Beyond. And we've really, really worked our butts off to give you an occlusion course that is gonna be applicable to real world dentistry. So, what's included in this pre-launch deal? We've got five different things for you. First of all is the OBAB starter kit. We're gonna send you a starter kit so you can start implementing the concepts we're gonna teach you straight away on Monday. It's got a Huffman leaf gauge we imported from the US and this is our favorite leaf gauge. It's also got a pack of shim stock in it, so you don't have to use your fat fingers every time. We're gonna send you a pair of Miller forceps as well. The start kit is worth a hundred pounds and we'll start shipping it once the course access begins on 7th of April. I think really anyone interested in occlusion, whether you are at the beginning of your career in the middle, or even getting towards the end would learn a huge amount from this particular program. The second benefit of this pre-launch deal is we're gonna give you 500 pounds off of the cost of the course, and you can take our word for it, that we are never gonna price it this low ever again. And this course truly has an unbelievable return on investment. The third benefit of the pre-launch deal is that instead of getting 12 months of access, we're gonna extend that. So you get two whole years of oab and that's a no extra charge, and we're gonna be adding lots of new cases and content as we go. I felt like I finally understood topics that I just struggled to wrap my head around for years. And that's purely down to the way in which the content's delivered. The fourth benefit of this pre-launch deal is you'll get one fully mentored case with us incl...

The Secrets to Finding a Passion in Dentistry – IC036
Dr. Karl Walker-Finch shares his journey of pain to passion as he reveals the secrets to finding YOUR passion in Dentistry. We started by discussing our crippling imposter syndrome as we left public Dentistry to practice privately. Along that theme we highlight the importance of taking control of your own destiny. Karl's new book, 'In The Loupe' raises money for Confidental (emotional first aid for Dentists) and is a powerful book for Dentists that wish to practise without fear and establish the right work-life balance. https://youtu.be/YPv71yr62tE Check out this full episode on YouTube 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 “We do not need thousands of specialists in full mouth rehabilitation” - Dr. Karl Walker-Finch Need to Read it?

Hence why the name of this episode. Now, some of the other titles that are also considered were GDPs, just Want to Have Fun. Jaz's Introduction:And the other one that describes this episode really well, which I almost considered was Fall in Love with Dentistry all over again. Hello, Protruserati. I'm Jaz Gulati and I'm the host of Protrusive Dental Podcast. This is a non-clinical interruption. We call this an Interference Cast. If it's your first time listening, thanks for joining me.

This episode is kind of like a feel good and an emotional exploration of your why and your purpose in your life and in your career. Some of the themes that we cover are things like imposter syndrome, my goodness. So I do get imposter syndrome less now than I used to, but when I get it, I get it in a big way. So we'll talk about how Karl experience is and how we both overcome that. We also talk about our journeys in moving to private density and how we actually felt bad about leaving the public health dentistry and what that kind of looked like. Our little roadmap. The other thing we discuss is how we both want to, we're both on a mission, Karl and I to infect you guys, you listening right now with enough positivity that you can head into work with excitement. In fact, the thing I love about protrusive and what it's become and you guys is the messages I get are kind of like in this vein here.

A Little Trick to Solve Anterior Open Bites after Occlusal Appliances – AJ003
I will reveal a little 'trick' that might 'recapture the bite' on a patient who develops an anterior open bite (AOB) after wearing a nightguard/splint/occlusal appliance. There is a degree of risk and uncertainty when we prescribe occusal appliances as it hinges on patient compliance and factors that are out of our control. There are certain risks that come with treatment that we should consent for, and this includes bite changes. Occlusal appliances are not an exact science - the evidence base is not high quality. That does not mean they do not work, it just means that we need more data! We don't even know the mechanism of HOW occlusal splints work as that is yet to be proven. Hello Protruserati! Welcome back to the third episode of #AskJaz where I answered three main questions from our Protrusive Dental Community - 1) developing anterior open bite after an occlusal appliance, 2) how to scan/bite register at a desired OVD, and 3) what should the occlusion look like on composite veneers or edge bonding? https://youtu.be/Li2W-ysYRIE Check out this full episode on YouTube 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 Dr. Mahmoud Ibrahim and I are currently working on a huge project called OBAB, Occlusion Basics, and Beyond – it will be the best occlusion resource in the Milky Way…and that’s our mission! We want to finally demystify Occlusion and make it Tangible AF! Join the waiting list HERE! Highlights of this episode: 1:51 Risk of having AOB after an Occlusal Appliance15:48 Trick to recover an AOB that has developed26:49 Bite Records for Stabilisation Splints30:25 Checking the Occlusion after Composite Veneers37:02 Occlusion Basics and Beyond Do join our Protrusive Dental Community Facebook Group.

If you enjoyed this episode, check out this episode with Dr. Barry Glassman - Do AMPSAs cause AOBs? Click below for full episode transcript: Jaz's Introduction: Occlusal appliances can be scary things. When we are given to our patients, we're at the mercy of their compliance. We don't really know if they're going to get along with it or not. [Jaz]We don't really know if it'll help their pain. If pain is the reason that we are prescribing in occlusal appliance, and a lot of times we are taking on a bit of risk because there are certain bite changes that can happen after occlusal appliances. And despite what you think, you know, you might think, oh yes, anterior only appliances, they're the big culprits here. They're the ones, those shifty devices, they're the ones causing all the bite changes. But actually, you can get a bite changer. A patient can get a bite change from any type of occlusal appliance. So, I see this quite frequently on the Facebook groups from dentists and also lots of dentists message me and share some of the cases where they've had some bite change. They're trying to get their head around what exactly happened. So, in this Ask Jaz episode, I'm going to cover three main themes. The main, the big one. The first one is, a patient who develops an anterior open bite after an occlusal appliance, and I'm going to teach you a trick that you can use if this happened to your patient to recover their bite. Okay? So that's number one. Number two and three, a shorter one. The second one is how to scan or record using silicon bite registration paste, the patient's centric relation record at the desired vertical dimension for something like a Michigan splint, for example, and the third one. What should the occlusion look like on composite veneers? These are three questions, or the last two are questions that were sent in by you guys. The first one's something I promised Professor Paul Tipton, that I would do,

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.

Best Practices in Social Media for Dentists – How to Stay Out of Trouble Yet Be Impactful – IC035
'Doing' Social Media is HARD work!' Do you find it difficult to make time for this? Do you worry about professionalism and ethics on social media? How about the blurred boundaries between professional and personal life? Dentistry is no exception to the trend of using social media in today's culture. Dentists are using social media to connect with their patients and create new opportunities for patient education. However, dentists face ethical challenges such as how to best communicate with patients online, and what is the best level of consent to get from patients when we post their photos and videos? In this episode, Dr. Alessandro Devigus also suggests how to use social media as a business tool and how to keep your personal life and professional life separate. https://youtu.be/TEBmlDlybLE Check out this full episode here 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 “React and interact with your audience how they WANT you to see” - Dr. Alessandro Devigus Need to Read it?

If you're listening to this, I'm sure you're involved in social media in some way or another. Jaz's Introduction:It's NO EXCEPTION for dentistry, but this creates new problems and dilemmas, new ethical dilemmas for us dentists. How do we best communicate with patients online, and what is the best level of consent to get to patients when we are posting their photos and videos? And where exactly do you DRAW THE LINE between PERSONAL and PROFESSIONAL? These are the burning questions we cover with Dr. Alessandro Devigus, who not only has a huge following on social media, but he's such a level-headed guy as an extremely experienced, successful clinician. One of the topics we discussed, which you may resonate with Protruserati is HOW to MAKE TIME for SOCIAL MEDIA. Many of you are struggling to find the opportunity throughout your busy lives to actually have a presence online. And so when I ask this to Alessandro, he had a really good answer, and it involves doing a bit of work, a bit of an audit of your time. So that's something we cover towards the middle and end of the episode. Hello, Protruserati. I'm Jaz Gulati. Welcome back to an Interference Cast. This is like a nonclinical interruption.

These are some of the things that have become quite an area of interest in dentistry and for all the right reasons, because as dentists, we're in such a brilliant position to SCREEN for AIRWAY ISSUES beyond just snoring. Like we don't wanna just treat snoring. Jaz's Introduction:We want to ADD YEARS to our patient's lives. And if we can diagnose or we can't diagnose, but we can screen for sleep apnea and airway issues and get the patients the help, and then we can be involved in potential therapy such as removal appliances to bring the mandible forward and that way we can have a huge impact in someone's life. I was always taught that the two times you can save someone's life dentistry is A) if you detect or diagnose a mouth cancer, or B) a barrett esophagus or someone's got acid reflux and for them to get investigated and have a camera to explore that area. However, I think a third one that wasn't mentioned to me in dental school, but definitely should be there is sleep disorder breathing or sleep apnea because on average that can take 10 years off of your life expectancy. And in case you think that sleep apnea is a disease of the fat old man, you are totally mistaken. So whether it's in children or in adults, this episode with Dr. Aditi Desai, who's just the most incredibly passionate woman ever on this topic, it's gonna open your mind.

Is Caries Detector Dye BS? – PDP138
Some dentists disagree with the use of Caries Detector Dye in Restorative dentistry. They say that they are experienced enough to know what is infected dentine and affected dentin. However, this episode might change your perspective— CCD can be an incredibly useful tool to provide objective data and increase your bond strengths! In this episode, Dr. Germán Dorgan spoke to us about caries detection dye and helped us understand how to use it properly. He also shared the evidence base behind this test and how to interpret the data that you get by using it. https://youtu.be/L8fScyRTet0 Check out the full episode here 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 Protrusive Dental Pearl: How can you remove the appropriate amount of caries to get the best bond strengths possible WITHOUT risking removing too much dentine and causing a pulp exposure: Use your perio probe and measure key landmarks. Measure 5mm from the cusp tip and 3mm from the adjacent marginal ridge - do not remove caries beyond this point. As a guide, this will help you not expose the pulp so you achieve very clean dentine for highest bond strengths, without worrying about 'when to stop'.

Jaz's Introduction:Is there actually any sign or useful applications because caries, as some colleagues would say, I just use my high magnification, my good lighting and my probe. I don't need a fancy dye to tell me if I got caries or not. I'm experienced enough to know that I've removed caries. Now, you know what? I kind of felt that way. I was like, do I really need a dye? I'm think I'm pretty good at moving caries and too fair. Since I've been using it, it's kind of confirmed that I'm pretty good at removing caries. Okay. I'm happy to say that I'm proud enough to say that. However, one in five, one in six times I see a pink haze where it shouldn't be. You'll find out what that pink haze means in this episode, but it's really useful objective data. So we'll speak to Dr. Germán Dorgan, all about caries deck to die, how to actually use it properly.

Hygienists are NOT Scaling Machines – IC034
Hygienists working without nurses and feeling like scaling machines - it's about time we covered this elephant in the dental surgery. I brought on my dear friends and exceptional hygienists Morgan Williams and Louise Brake - they have faced career struggles in the past in the quest to finding the right environment and have so much to share with us. The biggest takeaway of this episode will be to consider 'leading from the bottom' - if you are feeling stuck and don't just wait around for good luck (I'm such a poet!) - take action. You'll be inspired by some of the ideas from our discussion! https://youtu.be/X7GBKUawq4A Check out the full episode here Need to Read it? Check out the Full Episode Transcript below!

If you enjoyed this episode, you may also like another episode with Laura Bailey: Why You Need to Take Massive Action for Success in Dentistry Click below for full episode transcript: Jaz's Introduction: What's the best way that hygienists and dentists can work together? Well, when I was in Singapore, I didn't know a single hygienist. It wasn't really a model at the time that was used there. Jaz's introduction:Whereas in the UK, we depend so much on our hygienists. I feel like we work together well with hygienists. However, I sometimes worry and hygienists I speak to worry that all they become is a SCALING MACHINE. And so, I talked about that today with Morgan and Lou. Two lovely hygienists I use to work with in Oxford and they share their struggles, how they had to work in quite a few practices where the environment just WASN'T RIGHT FOR THEM to thrive in as part of prevention minded hygienists. And I think what they have to say, well, if you're a hygienist, listen to this. Or maybe a dentist has said this episode to you, then this is gonna be a real source of inspiration from two lovely ladies who've been in the game for a little while. They know what they want and they're gonna tackle those difficult themes such as HYGIENISTS working WITHOUT NURSES like. Where does that stand now in 2023? My practice now where I work as an associate, only now is it starting to really implement a nurse working with a hygienist. Whereas I've worked with a few practices for where there is no such thing. It's unheard of for the hygienist to have nursing support and I know lots of young hygienists who tell me that they feel really uneasy about working alone and really, is this the best way to deliver ideal patient journey that's safe and effective? I don't think so. But then again, a lot of you will say, 'But Jaz, you are not a practice owner. You are not paying the bills.' And I totally get that. I respect that. As an associate, it's easy for me to say that, but I'm hoping after this episode with Morgan and Lou, though, you understand why it is so important for our profession to work together with hygienists to get the best outcomes, and I do believe that starts with a hygienist being provided a nurse. Now, what I don't want after this episode is lots of hygienists handing their notice or dentist getting pissed off and saying, 'Jaz, what the hell do you do? Why did you encourage my hygienist to think a little bit differently and inspire him or her a little bit too much?' I mean, I want to inspire. I want to get the word out. I want to help these hygienists through Morgan and Lou and what they have to say in learning from their journeys.

What I was wearing is just like, really emphatic advice to me at the time. It's just stuck with me throughout my career, and it's not too different to the advice that Finlay Sutton gave. A few episodes ago.

Hello Protruserati. I'm Jaz Gulati, and welcome back to another episode of Protrusive Dental Podcast. This time, it was actually a rare face-to-face episode that I recorded. I drove over a hundred miles to see Graham, my technician, and the theme was to answer your questions that you'd sent on the Facebook group, everything you wanted to know from a technician. But NEVER ASKED. We covered things like digital versus analogue. Is digital there yet? Should we be opening contacts for veneers? Heck do technicians like it when we open the contacts for veneers?

These are all the questions we'll be covering in today's episode. Hello, Protruserati. I'm Jaz Gulati, and welcome back to your favorite dental podcast. It's not often we do an episode on sedation. It's quite a niche thing, but it complements some of the previous episodes we've done such as the one about hypnosis with Mike Gow. You have to listen to that one. And Mike and Roy, today's guests are actually really good friends, and it makes total sense. You know, Roy was a fantastic calm communicator. I would feel very safe in his hands as a patient.

This is just something that I've been very much in tune with myself.

'Hey, Jaz, I'm starting to make this venture into digital dentistry.' And it's overwhelming, right? Jaz's Introduction:There's so much out there in terms of different types of scanners, different requirements, so which is the best scanner? Which is the most appropriate scanner for your clinic and your requirements? Well, that's exactly what we're covering today with Dr. Gulshan Murgai. If you haven't listened already to IC027, it was his story that we covered and it's titled, 'He got Sued and he won.' So essentially, it's his entire legal case how it led to that. And we learned so many different medical legal lessons and it was just great to hear about his triumph. So, if you haven't listened to that, please do listen to that. But if you've clicked on, because of the title of digital dentistry in which scanner to buy, there's so much meat in here because Gulshan has tested and tried all these scanners, and now he's gonna summarize for you which scanner he thinks is the best and why that might change depending on your needs and the needs of your practice. Now, Gulshan doesn't keep it a secret or hide it or anything. He has got some financial interest in a digital scanning company. But I still think there's so much of meat in terms of gaining the knowledge to know what are the differences in the different scanners and how you can choose which scanner to invest in. Let's join Dr. Gulshan. I'll catch you in the outro. Main Episode:Dr. Gulshan Murgai, after that really enlightening episode about how you triumphantly won the case and so many lessons shared.

Biomimetic Dentistry – What Actually Is It? – PDP135

Dr. Taylor Paton will discuss his journey in Biomimetic Dentistry: how it differs from Adhesive dentistry and how it can be used to develop innovative treatment strategies for patients.

I think in the last few years it's become like a buzzword in clinical dentistry. Is it the same as adhesive dentistry? What is this decoupling time or decoupling with time? And how can we follow simple steps to improve our bond strengths? Jaz’s Introduction:Because essentially, from my understanding of BIOMIMETIC DENTISTRY, it is like EXTREME BONDING. Basically, it's extreme adhesive bonding and using a set of philosophies and guidelines following the literature to get the best bond strengths possible. Today I've got on Dr. Taylor Paton, and I love him because he's a young dentist, like he's super young, and I respect that a lot because he's got something to share. He's got fantastic online resource, all about his passion and his learning and his journey with Biomimetic dentistry. And sometimes what happens in education is that the grand master, the king of any discipline within dentistry, they are so far removed from the plight and the struggles of that learner that sometimes they may not be the best person anymore to introduce someone to that topic. So, I think Taylor, what he presents today is a young Scottish dentist and I just love his energy and his knowledge. You know how much I love geeky dentists, and so therefore I've got him to talk about Biomimetic dentistry, answering my questions from the lens of a young dentist who's just very well read up and very keen in this field, and that way he's also learning and therefore, as us, we are all learning together with him. I think this episode is more impactful as an introduction to Biomimetic Dentistry than if I got on an established superstar that's already well known. So, Taylor, keep up the good work, my friend. Hello, Protruserati. I'm Jaz Gulati and welcome back to the Protrusive Dental Podcast. If you're listening to this, I love you. Thank you so much.

Which Intra-Oral Scanner Should I Buy? (Digital Dentistry) – GF018
One of the most common questions I get from colleagues is 'Which Intra-Oral Scanner should I buy?' - I don't have the breadth of experience of testing all the scanners out there, but Dr. Gulshan Murgai does! We discussed which scanner is best for your practice and how to choose the correct one for your needs. I hope you gain insight into the differences between the different scanners and help you move forwards a decision.

But the thing I always enjoyed the least I guess is DENTURES, complete dentures because I had a bit of experience. And I did a restorative post and I did loads of complete dentures I quite enjoyed. Jaz's IntroductionBut chrome dentures, for whatever reason, demographics exposure, didn't get enough chance to practice the art of chromed dentures. And to be honest with you, I never got on with surveyors and I never really understood denture design. Now fast forward many years, and I started to get a more elderly patient base and the demand for good quality denture work increased. So, I had to match that demand. And I've been relying too much on my technicians to help me with the denture design and touchwood, I've had some good results so far. And what that did, it inspired me to learn more, I want to take control of the denture design now, hence why I've got Finlay Sutton coming next month. So, now it's December. In January 2023, he’s coming to Reading I'm bringing him down south because I'm allergic to the north. And I'm just so excited to start implementing everything he's teaching, but this episode will go a long way in teaching you about the philosophy of SCANDINAVIAN CHROMED DENTURES as well as for the younger dentists, every single sequence of Chrome Denture Provision, what is done at each appointment and why you do it in that order.
