Magne receives JPD’s Judson C. Hickey Scientific Writing Award
22 Feb 18
Associate Professor Pascal Magne has earned a 2018 Judson C. Hickey Scientific Writing Award from the Journal of Prosthetic Dentistry for “Simplified treatment of severe dental erosion with ultrathin CAD-CAM composite occlusal veneers and anterior bilaminar veneers,” an article he wrote with co-authors Luis Schlichting and Tayane Holz from the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro.
In the clinical report, Magne and his co-authors showcase the way CAD/CAM technology, coupled with adhesive dentistry, can be used to fabricate missing parts of teeth.
Magne’s innovative approach would change the way severe dental erosion and caries are treated.
Typically, dentists must remove significant portions of healthy dental tissue (both inside and outside the tooth) to place a dental crown. The process can leave margins, or tiny gaps, between the crown and the gums, making it necessary for the dentist to extend the crown to hide its margin below the gumline.
Magne’s approach requires bonding thin CAD/CAM-designed veneers directly to a patient’s existing tooth, leaving the healthy portions of the tooth largely intact and avoiding the need to hide unsightly margins. “Those thin shells of material — composite resin and ceramics — blend very naturally with the existing tissues,” the dental esthetic expert said.
Magne joined Ostrow’s faculty in 2004. He teaches Ostrow’s first-year DDS students the fundamentals of biomimetic restorative dentistry using a 2D–3D–4D approach, through which students learn to restore the form, function and esthetics of natural teeth by completing drawings, wax-ups and finally layering exercises. He is the author of the textbook, “Bonded Porcelain Restorations in the Anterior Dentition: A Biomimetic Approach.”
The Judson C. Hickey Scientific Writing Award is bestowed annually upon the writers of of the most outstanding articles — in three categories: research/clinical sciences article, clinical report and technical article — published in the Journal of Prosthetic Dentistry as determined by the publications’ editorial council.
The Journal of Prosthetic Dentistry has a current impact factor of 2.095.
