A Technique for Surgical Mandibular Exostosis Removal A Technique for Surgical Mandibular Exostosis Removal

Summary:

Exostosis, a slow-growing, benign bony outgrowth, is a common clinical finding and not usually an issue with patients. However, when removable prosthetics must sit either adjacent to or over these areas, pressure, food abrasion, ulceration, or limited tongue space can occur. This article describes a surgical technique for exdsion of exostosis through the presentation of a case. An 86-year-old woman had soft-tissue irritation caused by abrasion from food in the buccal posterior right quadrant. The removal of the exostosis is illustrated through the use of a device that serves as an alternative to a scalpel, offering a safe, predictable outcome.

The Socket-Shield Technique: First Histological, Clinical, and Volumetrical Observations after Separation of the Buccal Tooth Segment – A Pilot Study
The “socket-shield technique” has shown its potential in preserving buccal tissues. However, front teeth often have to be extracted due to vertical fractures in buccolingual direction. It has not yet been investigated if the socket-shield technique can only be used with intact roots or also works with a modified shield design referring to vertical fracture lines. The aim of this study was to assess histologically, clinically, and volumetrically the effect of separating the remaining buccal root segment in two pieces before immediate implant placement.

Applied Techniques for Predictable Suture Placement Part 2

Applied Techniques for Predictable Suture Placement Part 2
Precise suture positioning is critical for adequate tissue healing and can be facilitated using a variety of techniques for closure. Part 1 of this article presented a discussion on the various interrupted, continuous, and periosteal suturing techniques for tissue maintenance. This article will present additional modalities available to ensure predictable healing and flap security fallowing a variety of surgical invasions.

Elements and Utilization of Suturing Needles

Elements and Utilization of Suturing Needles
The primary components of every suturing needle include the attachment end, body, and point. Traditional complications caused by threading have been eliminated by the advent of needles that are permanently attached to the suturing material. The suturing procedure is further simplified by the attached and press-fitted end of the needle (swaged) that enables the clinician to draw it through the tissue with less trauma.

Smile Design 3D vs. 2D: The Evolution of Precision in Esthetic Digital Dentistry
In the digital dentistry era, trials never stop to achieve a full digital workflow to fabricate aesthetic restorations based on predictable and accurate facial guided smile design methods but the existing techniques present limitations in the process of transferring the design from 2D to 3D as they are mainly based on 2D Photography and 2D to 3D superimposition and transfers. In this presentation a review of the available techniques and technologies is presented as well as a novel technique that has been used to design a 3D smile frame using 3D face scans, 3D intra oral optical scans, CBCT and multiple software to overcome the limitations of already available 2D smile design systems offering predictable, more accurate and easier to use workflows for success in analysis, planning, design and execution in everyday clinical practice.

Is There One or More Reasons to Optimize the PRF & PRP Protocols? Future Trends in Dentistry, Orthopedics and Facial Aesthetics
The “Advanced” PRF (A-PRF) and “Injectable” PRF (I-PRF) protocols were designed with this new concept. Indications are numerous in all medical fields where we need regeneration: bone, cartilage, skin etc... However, the use of growth factors is not a guarantee of long term stability, as they are active only at the beginning of the process. Numerous rules of tissue engineering have to be applied to maintain the regenerated bone through an adequate blood supply: this lecture is an enlightenment on the biological and mechanical conditions for long term stability of the bone: “grafted bone” or “bone around implants”.

The Interdisciplinary Software Platform. The Key For Modern Digital Dentistry Premium Member Content

The Interdisciplinary Software Platform. The Key For Modern Digital Dentistry
The starting point of a facially driven interdisciplinary dental treatment plan is "The Smile Frame". A few crucial photos and steps will come together to create the ultimate template you need to communicate to your dental team, colleagues, and the patient to ultimately increase case acceptance and create the most aesthetic and functional method of rehabilitation to your patient. We will discuss how this paradigm shift of regular analog dentistry has shifted to this modern digital world and the benefits it provides. The protocol proposed will improve the diagnosis, communication and predictability of esthetic rehabilitation, from simple implant or restorative cases to complex cases, combining perio, ortho, and othognathic surgery. Emphasis will be given to the utilization of digital tools to enhance and facilitate the Dentist/Technician interaction and communication with the patient.

Horizontal Augmentation Through the Ridge-Split Procedure: A Predictable Surgical Modality in Implant Reconstruction
In this presentation, the author concentrated on the ridge-split procedure (RSP) as a form of a ridge modification (widening or augmentation), the technique that offers many possibilities and has many advantages in oral pre-prosthetic implant reconstruction. There are many modifications of the RSP. This presentation is a description of classical ridge-split procedure in maxilla and mandible that has been successfully employed for many years in author’s surgical practice.
