    Facebows – When and Why (Not) To Use Them – PDP097

    Facebows – When and Why (Not) To Use Them – PDP097

    The best articulator is the patient's TMJ, but you knew that already, right? As a dental student I was always confused by Facebows in Dentistry and their role. Lots of clinicians I respect used facebows....but many others do not! What role do Facebows play in relation to Articulators? How can we make sure that articulators mimic the human articulation as accurately as possible? I am joined by Dr Salman Pirmohamed to end our confusion with Facebows!

    Protrusive Dental Pearl: If you're planning to increase the occluso-vertical dimension (perhaps for multiple restorations or an occlusal appliance) and you know the final vertical dimension, try recording your Centric relation record (or whichever bite religion you follow) AT that desired vertical dimension and NOT at the 'first point of contact'. This is because traditionally when we send the technician a first point of contact bite, they will open up the pin to give you the space that you need for the restorations and optimal aesthetics. The problem with this is that it introduces an error because the arc closure/opening of the patient is likely going to be different (even with the best Facebow in the world) to the arc on the articulator. Therefore, reduce that error by doing your bite registration, not at the first point of contact, but doing it at where you want to finish. Read that again!







    In this episode we discussed:







    * Implant cases in MClindent in prosthodontics at Eastman 8:32* Microbrush Technique (Stickbite) 12:24* The ‘Putty Bite’ technique 16:05* When to use the ‘Putty Bite’ technique? 18:29 * What is the role of a Facebow? 20:52* Benefits of a Facebow registration 23:41* Communicating to the technician in terms of using an average Value Articulator 25:23* Making Facebows a part of your Clinical Practice 31:02* Kois DentoFacial Analyzer 36:40 * Guidelines for using a Facebow 38:34

    Opening Snippet: So that makes the best type of articulator, which is the patient, the patient is the best articulator. Like when you have temporaries or mock up so you can try something, you know, you've got complex restorations, just putting temporaries in the mouth, but lab provisionals checking the patient, if it will make sense, cement them in temporaries, see how it goes and when you're happy, just take a copy and use that because that's actually the best articulator you'll get...

    Main Episode: In this very first Occlusal Adjustment, I'll be talking about how to plan your CPD. My opinions on which is the next course that you should do. Hello, Protruserati, I'm Jaz Gulati and welcome back to another episode this one is an Occlusal Adjustment. So basically the whole point of an Occlusal Adjustment is sometimes I have these amazing guests on and I am just captivated by their story. And when they're speaking and I'm listening, you've probably seen it for those of you that catch me on the video episodes is that I've got these facial expressions like I'm in deep thought. And my brain is like absolutely bouncing with so many activities and thoughts. And sometimes I want to ask certain questions or take in a different direction, but then we end up going on a tangent. So what an Occlusal Adjustment is about is an episode where I get to go a little bit deeper and give you my perspectives and my opinions. And that's all it is really. It is very much my opinion. So everything I say on anything that I say on my podcast ever, always take it with a pinch of salt, okay? There's just me and my opinions and my paradigms, which I'm very happy to share with you. But always remember the philosophy of listen to everyone and do what feels right to you. So this is an Occlusal Adjustment for the planning your CPD and burnout episode I did with Emma Courtney, it was just so great to hear her story and how she fought burnout and now she's come back with a vengeance. She's so passionate and purposeful, everything she does, and she's doing a great podcast, herself. Fang farrier should definitely check that one out.







    Now, what I want to tell you about is my favorite type of learning as a dentist, my favorite way of getting my CPD hours in and something I like to call just in time learning. Okay? So very much the opposite of just in time learning is that, for example, many years ago, I didn't know anything about Crown Lengthening surgery. And so one day I say to myself, Okay, I don't know anything about Crown Lengthening surgery, so therefore,

    Finally, Some Clarity on Teeth Whitening for Under-18s with Linda Greenwall – PDP096

    Finally, Some Clarity on Teeth Whitening for Under-18s with Linda Greenwall – PDP096

    If you refuse to whiten under-18s without any exceptions (perhaps because you are blindly following shameful legislation) - then you may be denying children their human right to health. Sorry if that stings - it's the truth. The impact that white and brown spots on teeth can have on teenagers can be very negative for their mental health. I hope that in this episode with Dr Linda Greenwall you will find answers and gain confidence in treating patients who are in dire need of teeth whitening for health reasons.

    Burnout and Continuing Education in Dentistry – PDP095

    This episode is deep. Burnout is a syndrome of chronic workplace stess that has not successfully been managed. It is unfortunate but it does and can affect so many of our colleagues.

The second half of this episode is about planning your CPD/Dental CE appropriately.

    “One of the the components of burning out is that emotional exhaustion - that kind of depersonalizing and trying to distance yourself from things” Dr Emma Courtney







    In this episode we talked about:







    * Dr Emma’s journey moving to New Zealand 7:42* Dr Emmas’s personal experience with burnout 18:02* Dr Emma’s source of stress and burnout 26:03* How to overcome burnout  34:56* How stress and burnout affects Dr Emma’s dentistry life 39:21* The importance of help even outside Dentistry 50:27* How to think differently about your CPD 56:04

    Opening Snippet: The physical injury turning into complaints turning into a lack of faith in my own treatment and trying to avoid more complicated treatment leading to probably borderline supervised neglect because it was easier not to do risky treatments than to feel like I was risking a complaint...







    Jaz's Introduction: So we've all heard about burnout in dentistry and how it can be really catastrophic for your career. Now, the guest I have on today, Emma Courtney went through a period of burnout which was cause interestingly, by a major earthquake. So all the different things that could affect your life is fascinating her story based in New Zealand how a major earthquake rattled her life so much, excuse the pun, that it set her in a cascade of events, and she experienced a burnout and she left dentistry thinking that she would never join dentistry ever again. She's now a passionate dentist, she's a fellow Protruserati and it's great to always have Ems' support and feedback on the podcast. So Ems, thanks for being with the journey of the Protrusive Dental podcast over the last three years or so. You've been a big part of it. You've been early adopter. So thank you so much. In this episode, we discuss Ems and how she moved from UK to New Zealand to practice dentistry. And what are the cascade of events that lead to burnout and how we can look out for the signs of burnout. So if you're in a difficult patch, right now, EMS and I will hopefully discuss in a way, that'll help you to identify the signs of burnout and how you can overcome it. And it's interesting that we talk about burnout and CPD because the other theme that we're gonna explore in this episode is picking your CPD and deciding what's part of your personal development plan. And it's interesting anytime in my career,

    “Always put learning before earning. Increasing your knowledge is immensely, immensely powerful, and it will never hold you back.” - Dr Ferhan Ahmed







    In this episode we talked about:







    * Ferhan’s journey from dental school to medical school 5:57* Advice to young dentists in pursuing Masters or medical school 9:33* Power of visualization 16:09* Kind of learning styles 22:26* Takeaway message of the book ‘Unstoppable’ 29:17* Rewarding yourself 35:38* Communication tip 38:55

    Opening Snippet: Hello, Protruserati. I'm Jaz Gulati and Welcome back to an interference cast. Now, if you're new to the podcast, welcome. It's great to have you. An interference cast is a non clinical interruption. And if you're a usual listener, welcome back...







    Jaz's Introduction: In this episode, we have Ferhan Ahmed. Now Ferhan is an awesome clinician. And he wrote this book called 'Unstoppable', which is a great contribution because it does so much for charity. But it's one of those books, which is very much in the realms of personal development. I'm a sucker for personal development books, I love anything in that genre of personal development. So the reason I like this book by Ferhan, is that it's personal development book, but it talks to me. It talked to me as a dentist, because he is a dentist, turn medic. And now he focuses on full arch implant work. And it was very inspiring. I think it's something that you know, we need to focus more on the non clinical sometimes, be it the mindset. So what do you expect to gain from this episode is to explore a little bit about your learning style, what is your learning style, and really focusing on bigger picture type stuff. And one of the biggest takeaways, I think, is the power of visualization. Now, let Ferhan do the honors explain a bit. But yeah, the times where I use visualization is like, macro visualization,

    Click below for full episode transcript:







    Opening Snippet: Welcome to group function, where the Protruserati worked together to find good solutions to worthy problems in dentistry with your host, Jaz Gulati...







    Jaz's Introduction: Tuberosity fractures are super scary, like, you know, when we did the first group function with Chris Waith about dry sockets, dry sockets don't worry me, okay? When it comes to OACs, Yeah, a little bit concerning, but after that episode, I feel much more confident. But when it comes to Tuberosity Fractures, man, I have to tell you, I'm really worried about causing them. And I've seen on social media people posting these photos, you know, I try to take out the upper left molar, and then the whole premolars and all the molars came out with it. And that is a scary sight. So in this group function, we're going to ask Chris Waith, how to prevent and how to manage that dreaded tuberosity fracture. Let's hit it.







    Main Interview: [Jaz]Then the next one is and the last one is tuberosity fractures. Like, this is scary when you see on social media, some you know, sometimes a big group of people posting their tuberosity fractures, and you see the first molar, the second molar and a third molar, come out with this massive chunk of maxilla. I do not want to ever be in that position that must be so stressful and like how do you even begin to have that conversation like you know, we always warn our patients before doing an extraction, maxillary extraction about these kinds of things. But Never Have I Ever warned a patient that look me taking out this wisdom tooth, I might also take out three other teeth while I'm doing this, for example, it's just so rare, unfortunate. So what are the risk factors? How can we manage it when you hear that crack, and so on and so forth.







    [Chris]So, I've been in that scenario of having a big unit, I think, if ever, you're taking out an upper six, or upper seven. And if there's a really tight contact between those three molars, the two tooth you're extracting, just spend a minute skimming the contact points out. So drill the contact points, make a physical space in between that tooth and the two neighboring teeth. Because then when you're Elevate,
