Reflecting on My Dental Teaching Journey

Reflecting on my journey, it was almost five years ago that I was given the opportunity to teach at the dental school.  At the time, I had been in private practice for almost fifteen years.  At the time, I didn’t know if I could teach….But I always remembered how stupid I felt in dental school…how […]

Missing the Signs of an Occlusal Collapse

I often looked at this case and pondered how I missed the signs of an occlusal collapse. I was in my auto pilot mode and have been seeing this patient for many years. I never thought of this patient as a rehab patient. He was a patient I inherited from the previous owner.   This […]

Staging This Full Mouth Reconstruction

Staging this FMR   Excited to be finishing this full mouth reconstruction.  I was referred to treat the non restorable canine.  But when I looked at the dentition, I thought he needed a full mouth reconstruction.  Luckily the patient is in agreement to this reconstructive treatment. I decided to treat the anterior segment first.  Now […]

Jaw Relation Appointment for A Full Arch Implant Bridge

I always tell my students that learning how to do a complete denture is fundamental to everything in prosthetic dentistry.   Specifically,  the step in jaw relation is very critical in determining how to set the teeth in space. This step will ultimately influence the patient’s aesthetic and functional outcome.   In this video, I am doing […]

A Difficult Crown Impression

Making Immediate Dentures

  I know that there is a lot of push for immediate implants and immediate provisionalization for cases with terminal dentition.  All on four can be a predictable treatment option for some cases.  But there are some cases where the prosthetic references are lost and the teeth are so unstable and unreliable for both the […]

The Power of A Smile

Recently, I was reminded again how fortunate I am to be in a position to change people’s lives.  This patient was very shy when she first came to see me.  During the first examination,  I immediately understood the possible reason behind her timid behaviour.  With a front tooth looking so badly discolored, she may not […]

The Things I would tell my Younger Self

A recent Facebook post reminded me that I moved back to Toronto seventeen years ago….which means I started my prosthodontic residency in Pittsburgh twenty years ago. I started going through some pictures of my graduation to remind me of what mindset I was like at that stage in my life.  I found this one picture […]

The Unaesthetic Black Triangle

When I first started practising dentistry many years ago, I didn’t know how much people hated the black triangle.  The black triangle that can develop as a result of gingival recession leading to the loss of the interdental papilla.  So much research has been around to determine what contributes to supporting the interdental papilla.  All […]
