Summary:

Of all developments in dental technology, fulfilling the esthetic and functional demands of a patient is still a challenge for both dentists and dental technicians. This becomes more difficult for patients with a previous treatment history that is not ideal. This case presentation demonstrates reconstruction of an anterior zirconia resin-bonded fixed dental prosthesis (RBFDP) for the mandible with a combined treatment approach utilizing veneers for harmonized space distribution on the abutment teeth and an implant-supported zirconia fixed dental prosthesis in the anterior segment of the maxilla. Adhesive cementation if the restorations is also presented in a step-by-step approach based on the current state of the art.

Surgical Crown Lengthening in a Population With Human Immunodeficiency Virus: A Retrospective Analysis
This report investigates the outcome of CLS procedures performed at an urban dental school in a population of individuals with HIV. Specifically, this retrospective clinical analysis evaluates the healing response after crown lengthening surgery (CLS). Of the 21 patients with HIV examined after CLS, none had postoperative complications, such as delayed healing, infection, or prolonged bleeding. Variations in viral load, CD4 cell count, smoking, platelets, and neutrophils did not impact surgical healing. In addition, variations in medication regimens (highly active anti-retroviral therapy; on pro-tease inhibitors; no medications had an impact. The results of this retrospective analysis show the absence of postoperative complications after CLS in this population with HIV. Additional investigation into this area will help health care practitioners increase the range of surgical services provided to this group of patients.

Adhesive Dentistry - A Full Time Practitioner’s Perspective

Adhesive Dentistry - A Full Time Practitioner’s Perspective
Adhesive dentistry has provided techniques and materials for conservative and esthetic options in every restorative practice. The understanding of the process of etching to form microscopic undercuts and infiltrating these gaps with resin to create an adhesive interface between tooth and restorative material has demonstrated long-term durable and well-sealed interfaces, resulting in excellent clinical results.

Aesthetic Enhancement of Pontic Sites for Fixed Partial Dentures

Aesthetic Enhancement of Pontic Sites for Fixed Partial Dentures
An adequate alveolar bone base is the prerequisite for functional and aesthetically optimal reconstruction of the soft tissue architecture for a fixed partial denture pontic site or dental implant site. If the horizontal and vertical dimensions of the ridge deficiency are within 3 mm of their original contour, acceptable results can he achieved by soft tissue augmentation procedure only, ie, connective tissue grafts, onlay grafts, or an inlay rolled graft. These procedures are usually performed…

The Changing Paradigm of Digital Implant Dentistry: Today’s Technology and Tomorrow’s Concepts - Part 2 of 2
Digital technology has revolutionized implant dentistry but not without frustration. Recent advances with hardware, software, and materials now present integrated solutions for the implant team through planning, placement, and restoration. Single implant treatment will be presented for every-day practice, as well as more advanced partial and fully-edentulous techniques. The most efficient and precise workflows through Keystone and its industry partners will give you concrete digital solutions ready for implementation in your practice. At the conclusion of the lecture the speaker will define some different “team structures” for how the surgeon, dentist, and lab could invest in technology and work together.
