The Importance of Assessing Facial Esthetics: An Insight for Dentists

Three key rules to consider for whole face beautification and optimal long-term results. Despite being a cosmetic surgeon focused on injectable based treatments, I have come to appreciate the importance of a beautiful smile and the role it plays in facial esthetics. The lips are an important esthetic subunit in repose, but the smile in animation is equally, if not more, important.

If the Boot Fits

When Dr. David Little walks into a room to begin a lecture, his students can’t help but take a look at his feet. That’s because they want to see what custom-made boots he’s wearing this time, whether it’s the pair with his practice logo, the ones promoting Little Implant Co., or a brand new creation they’ve never seen before. Repeat students know the story behind the San Antonio-based doctor’s boot collection, and many have even asked where they can get a pair for themselves.

Better Estimates, Better Results: Part 1

Using digital radiography to estimate pre-operative root lengths can help clinicians better evaluate endodontic cases. An estimate is nothing more than a prediction. It is an approximation or projection of something based on experience and/or available information, with the understanding that all the facts remain uncertain. Depending on the content, an estimate can be leveraged to address multiple goals. In the context of endodontics, that leverage comes in the form of digital radiography.
