Summary:

A patient presenting with severe microstomia (PDI Class IV) was unable to insert a maxillary complete denture. Sectional final impressions were made using two impression materials and an interlocking custom tray. A folding record base was used for maxillomandibular relationship records. A novel folding maxillary denture with a custom hinge and plunger attachment to lock the denture in the open position was fabricated. The patient was able to insert the collapsed denture, open it intraorally, and enjoy successful masticatory function.

Quest for the All Ceramic Restoration

Quest for the All Ceramic Restoration
The all-ceramic, full-coverage restoration has long been the center of the profession's ardent quest for the consummate esthetic restoration. Over the years, we have come to acknowledge the optimal esthetics of the all-porcelain crown, but its tendency to fracture over time rendered it an "alternative" restoration for specifically selected cases when compared to the "workhorse" of porcelain-fused-to-metal restorations. The initial dental feldspathic porcelains exhibited low shear strength with a…

Surgical Veneer Grafting - Compensation for Natural Labial Plate Remodeling After Immediate Implant Placement

Surgical Veneer Grafting - Compensation for Natural Labial Plate Remodeling After Immediate Implant Placement
Contemporary implant therapy aims to provide highly esthetic and predictable treatment outcomes while decreasing treatment duration and complexity. The clinician must therefore be cognizant of circumstances with a predisposition toward esthetic outcomes and treatment plan accordingly. Preservation of the surrounding hard and soft tissues associated with an immediate postextraction socket implant to replace a nonrestorable tooth in the esthetic zone is one of the greatest challenges facing the dental team. A case report of a hopeless maxillary left central incisor in a patient with a thin periodontal phenotype illustrates this new surgical and prosthetic approach. Clinical, radiological, and esthetic parameters were recorded to evaluate primary treatment outcomes.

Multitasking Digital Dentistry - Part 1 of 2
The "Digital Smile Design" is a technique codified and published in 2011 by Christian Coachman and Marcelo Calamita. This approach has radically changed the way we analyze the aesthetics of our patients and at the same time gave the clinician a great tool of communication with the laboratory and with the patient. In recent years, softwares and applications have been introduced on the market in order to simplify the workflow and make more predictable the outcome. The purpose of the lecture is to resume the current concepts about digital aesthetic preview, and to show new trends.
