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.

Barriers in the Surgical Suite: Standards Required
Dental implant, periodontal , and oral surgical procedures or any potentially hemorrhagic procedures put the practitioner and staff at risk for exposure to blood-borne viruses (eg, AIDS, Hepatitis B, Hepatitis C), as well as saliva and blood-transmitted pathogens (eg, Mycobacterium tuberculosis, Staphyloccus, Streptococcus, cytomegalovirus). There are also a number of viruses that may infect the upper respiratory tract. In these cases, infections may be transmitted through direct contact with blood…

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.

Chu's Aesthetic Guages: Crown Lengthening

Chu's Aesthetic Guages: Crown Lengthening
The Crown Lengthening Gauge has the Biologic Periogauge (BLPG) tip on one end and the Papilla tip on the opposite end. The BLPG tip is used to achieve the propermid-facial clinical crown and biologic crown (osseous crest to incisal edge position) length during surgical crown lengthening procedures. The Papilla tip follows the use of the BLPG tip to establish the correct aesthetic position of the interdental papilla fromthe incisal edge before the flap is closed and sutured.

Complex Case Rehabilitation in Light of New Technologies Premium Member Content

Complex Case Rehabilitation in Light of New Technologies
This case report describes a step-by-step full-arch restoration, upper and lower, rehabilitated utilizing new technologies in dentistry. CAD/CAM technology has changed not only the technician’s working process, but also the clinician’s, offering new benefits to the clinical workflow, as for example the possibility of using zirconia and its characteristics as a restorative material. The clinician’s and technician’s professional backgrounds and relationship are critical to achieving better esthetic and functional results, while prosthetic success depends upon an in-depth knowledge of the materials and their properties and on carefully performed clinical procedures, which are still of outmost importance to obtain satisfactory results.
