A graduate of Paris Descartes University (now the University of Paris), Dr Léon Pariente currently runs a private practice in the French capital that specialises in implantology and periodontics. In an upcoming free webinar, he and Dr Karim Dada will discuss how various digital technologies, such as CBCT imaging and CAD/CAM, have replaced traditional modalities and enhanced the aesthetic aspects of restorations. Pariente spoke with Dental Tribune International about this topic ahead of the presentation on Thursday, 25 June.
TÜBINGEN, Germany: Given that teeth are often the best-preserved part of human skeletons, researchers across many disciplines frequently rely on them to reconstruct genetic affinities among ancient populations. A pair of researchers have now discovered which dental features are most likely to indicate genetic relationships and which features are more likely to reflect environmental adaptations or natural selection.
