A true master- I was honored to have presented a case when I was a senor at Penn for the annual award named after him and still on my wall. He touched the lives of many and will certainly be missed.

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.

Mastering Surgical Principles: Key to Constant Success
Clinical success depends on material and technique selection, but no material or technique will succeed if surgical principles are not respected. Attention to detail is imperative and mastering surgical principles is key to constant success. This course aims to review principles of flap design and elevation, as well as degranulation, debridement, suturing and wound stabilization of the most commonly performed periodontal, implant and advanced bone grafting procedures. Pharmacologic protocols and anesthesia will also be discussed.

Controlled Ridge Splitting (CRS) Premium Member Content

Controlled Ridge Splitting (CRS)
To demonstrate a new technique of controlled ridge splitting (CRS) in severely atrophied maxillary cases as an alternative to autogenous block graft. Twenty cases were completed using a controlled ridge splitting (CRS) technique with a total of 65 implants were placed in severely atrophied Maxillae and followed after the implants were loaded. Results: The CRS technique was used in very complex cases, where the alternative method will be autogenous block graft. A total of 65 tapered implants were placed. The implants diameter ranged between 3.25-5mm with a length ranged between 10-13mm. The implants were restored and were followed for 1-3 years. All implants achieved osseointegration and continue to have successful prostheses. Conclusion: The CRS is a predictable treatment option and could be a good alternative to autogenous block grafts is severely atrophic maxillae.

The Magnetic Mallet and It’s Use in Daily Practice - Clinical Perspective Premium Member Content

The Magnetic Mallet and It’s Use in Daily Practice - Clinical Perspective
This innovative machine called the Magnetic Mallet is a device based on a EU/US patent of invention in oral surgery. It uses magnetism to generate a very impressive acceleration of the osteotomes that maximizes the forces applied to the bone (making the procedure fast and efficient) and in the meantime minimizes the inertia and discomfort for the patient. Such speed doesn’t cause any bone heating therefore irrigation water is also not needed!

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.
