  • He also presents courses and works with industry personnel to advance the practice of dentistry.

Favorite Komet USA Product

The H379G.FG.023 egg-shaped carbide has found a permanent place in Dr. Yaste’s toolkit.

This golden-shanked workhorse is unmatched in its ability to cut the chimneys off of hybrid prostheses without generating heat; heat causes fatigue to the internal workings of the hybrid prosthesis and in turn can lead to fractures.

Since incorporating this Komet bur into his technique, Dr. Yaste has not had a single appliance fracture.

The future of Dentistry

“For me personally, I plan on continuing my clinical practice but increasingly limiting my time to procedures that are dental-implant related and working with the edentulous population. I also aim to spend more time in speaking engagements and consulting. For dentistry in general, implant-retained overdentures and hybrid fixed appliances are going to continue to grow in popularity and, I believe, become the treatment of choice for the Baby Boomer generation, who did not grow up with the dental advantages or sophistication that following generations have had. This is the future of dentistry for that generation, so this procedure will remain very popular for the next 15 to 20 years and possibly beyond. Centers are popping up all around the country, with more in the works, and more and more courses on the procedure are being held.”
