Summary:

This article, the first of a planned three-part series, outlines a new surgical & prosthetic approach for treating cases involving two missing adjacent teeth in the esthetic zone. These type of cases, particularly when combined with a three-dimensional ridge deficiency, represent one of esthetic dentistry's most challenging dilemmas. A Clear understanding of the unilateral and bilateral defect concept is necessary to properly evaluate each particular case, understand surgical limitations, perform a better risk assessment, establish an esthetic prognosis, develop the best clinical-laboratory strategy, and adjust patients' expectations. While not recommended for every case, represents a useful, economical, and predictable alternative that decreases the umber and complexity of interventions.

Controlled Restorative Treatment of Compromised Anterior Dentition
The aesthetic appearance of the maxillary anterior dentition is determined by the relationship between the shape, contour, color, position, and arrangement of the teeth to the healthy labial gingiva and the interdental papillae. When restoring the anterior dentition, the objective of a harmonious natural appearance of the teeth, surrounded by healthy soft tissue, should be achieved through a controlled predictable treatment protocol. In periodontally compromised teeth, the prognosis of each tooth…

Effect of Different Cementation Techniques on Retained Excess Cement and Uniaxial Retention of the Implant-Supported Prosthesis

Effect of Different Cementation Techniques on Retained Excess Cement and Uniaxial Retention of the Implant-Supported Prosthesis
The aim of the study was to identify the different techniques of cementation (half filling, practice abutment, and venting) that will reduce the amount of retained cement and the effect of these techniques on retention of implant supported prostheses. The venting and practice abutment techniques are suitable methods of reducing retained excess cement with optimal retention values.

Alternative Design for Resin Bonded Bridges: A Clinical Report
When replacing missing teeth, resin bonded fixed partial dentures (RBFPDs) are a routine, minimally invasive option for patients that cannot or will not move forward with surgical interventions. Debonding of RBFPDs, however, remains a significant clinical problem. In this clinical report, novel RBFPD designs are presented, to improve retention and esthetics.

Modern Crown Lengthening: Classification and Clinical Application Premium Member Content

Modern Crown Lengthening: Classification and Clinical Application
Crown lengthening procedures are indicated to provide adequate tooth structure in case of subgingival tooth fracture or caries, uneven gingival level, un-esthetic short crowns due to the tooth wear, inadequate axial height, altered passive eruption ,forced eruption of a single or multiple teeth and finally in case of gingival smile. The treatment modality for esthetic crown lengthening procedure should be based on detail diagnosis in each case because of the multifactorial etiology and because of the type of therapy selected by the clinician, will have a direct implication for the esthetic result.
