We are avid champions of the principle “first do no harm” in dental or medical treatments promulgated by Hippocrates long ago, as well as many others, and have for close to three decades researched the procedures required for the replacement of missing teeth without complicated, time consuming, invasive and costly methods. People, generally, are in a quandary as to what path to take, root canal therapy for their infected tooth or extraction, traditional tooth cutting fixed bridgework to replace a missing tooth, removable partial bridges for missing teeth, the various strategies for a quick fix snap on smile, or an implant replacement system. Most people are unaware of the simple, safe, effective, durable, and efficient alternative of the Carlson Bridge® “Winged Pontic” tooth replacement system.

Old hands in dentistry know the value they create in rebuilding dentitions (mouths) by replacing missing and broken teeth, their contributions in time and money for their patients. They are also aware of the costs of maintaining a modern dental practice on an hourly basis. This “hourly basis” is just one standard upon which dentists base their fees that work together with other expense factors and value offered/created.

Let us look at one procedure, the single tooth fixed replacement of a missing tooth, to demonstrate the synergetic impact of modern dental materials and processing times in a new fixed bridge innovation—Carlson Bridge® “Winged Pontic” Tooth Replacement Systems.

We define synergy as:

• The interaction of elements that when combined produce a total effect that is greater than the sum of the individual elements, contributions, etc.; synergism.

• Physiology, Medicine/Medical. The cooperative action of two or more muscles, nerves, or the like.

• Biochemistry, Pharmacology. The cooperative action of two or more stimuli or drugs.

This principle in life, synergy, is observable in this true life example: during World War II, the search for lightweight, superstrong, durable and easily worked with metals for the production of airplanes was of prime importance. What scientist found in trial and error chemical structuring of metals such as iron, steel, cobalt, aluminum, etc., was that often the strengths of the end products combined were 5 to 10 time greater than expected. They anticipated a result that might have been expected of a tensile strength 10,000 lbs. / inch2. ; but, what resulted from this combination was 100,000 lbs./ inch2.

Baffled by this the aerospace industry termed this phenomenon synergy as they called upon “Bucky” for clarification. R.B. Fuller (Bucky) wrote about this extensively in his book SYNERGETICS published in 1975. Other scientific researchers called it “doing more with less or more with less-ing.”

We meet with “synergy” every day of our lives little aware of its profound impact. In a sense Synergy is Creativity, the act of experimentation and thoughtfulness as to a vision of a much better service we may offer the dental patient. We present this principle, synergy, as observed in the profession of dentistry as demonstrated in Table 1.
