Stefano Ardu
Different approaches ranging from veneers and crowns to employing the more conservative use of freehand resin composites have been proposed to correct esthetic problems caused by enamel fluorosis (EF). However, the protocol of mega-abrasion followed by microabrasion may be used as an alternative. It is less invasive and can minimize the unesthetic brown-to-whitish spots caused by EF. This article describes an easy and low-cost technique for managing enamel defects in a patient with severe enamel fluorosis.

Epidermolysis bullosa belongs to a group of genetic diseases that present with skin disorders and is characterized by generalized blister formation in response to mechanical trauma. This article reports on the management of a recessive dystrophic epidermolytic patient with four remaining periodontally compromised maxillary teeth. Treatment involved placement of four maxillary implants and use of computer-aided design/computer-assisted manufacture techniques to fabricate a fixed full-arch implant-supported prosthesis...

PURPOSE: To compare bleeding on probing (BoP), probing depth (PD; ≥ 4 mm), radiographic (peri-implant crestal bone loss [CBL]), and immunologic inflammatory (interleukin-1beta [IL-1β] and matrix metalloproteinase-9 [MMP-9]) parameters around dental implants with cement-retained (CR) and screw-retained (SR) implant-supported crowns. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Based on the mode of retention of the restoration, 51 patients were divided into two groups: Group 1, consisting of 26 single implants restored with CR crowns, and Group 2, consisting of 25 single implants restored with SR crowns...

Intraoral digital impression is a viable alternative to conventional impression techniques and has been proven to be even more accurate than conventional materials. Nevertheless, there are cases in which the rheologic properties of conventional materials can be helpful. This article describes a method to overcome an insufficient sulcus-depth reading of intraoral scanners in challenging cases.

PURPOSE: The aim of this study was to describe the histologic and histomorphometric features of a retrieved, functional endosseous zirconia implant in a human subject. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A maxillary zirconia implant (ZV3) placed in a 52-year-old man was retrieved after 2 years of uncompromised service and prepared for light microscopic evaluation. RESULTS: Histologic examination demonstrated good osseointegration. Bone contact measurements revealed a mean percentage of bone-to-implant contact of 55...

PURPOSE: This in vitro study evaluated the reliability of a surgical guide with regard to different levels of operator surgical experience and implant site. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A stereolithographic surgical guide for epoxy resin mandibles with three edentulous molar sites was produced using a computer-aided design/computer-assisted manufacture (CAD/CAM) system. Two surgeons with and two surgeons without implant surgery experience placed implants in a model either using or not using the CAD/CAM surgical guide...

PURPOSE: The aim of this study was to assess the evidence of a correlation between the expertise of surgeons and the survival rate of dental implants. MATERIALS AND METHODS: An electronic search in four databases (MEDLINE, EMBASE, SCOPUS, and the Cochrane Library) was performed for publications from their inception to May 2016 and was supplemented by manual searches. Prospective and retrospective cohorts were included if they met the following criteria: (1) the presence of an exposed group (inexperienced surgeons); and (2) the presence of a control group (experienced surgeons)...

PURPOSE: The objective of this trial was to compare short-term patient preference for two mandibular complete denture (CD) fabrication techniques: neutral zone (NZ) and conventional (CV). MATERIALS AND METHODS: A prospective, within-subject, randomized crossover trial was performed on a sample of 37 edentulous patients with complete denture experience. Two new sets of CDs were made for each patient, one set with a CV and one with a NZ mandibular denture. After consecutively wearing each set for at least 2 months after the last adjustment visit, patients indicated their preference (CV, NZ, or none)...

PURPOSE: The aim of this study was to determine whether dentists are able to discern and identify increases in occlusal vertical dimension (OVD) in dentate subjects without apparent loss of OVD. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A total of 10 dentate subjects had mandibular overlays fabricated at 2-, 3-, 4-, and 5-mm openings of the anterior guide pin (AGP) of a semiadjustable articulator. Standardized frontal and profile photographs with subjects wearing each of the overlays were made...

PURPOSE: Edentulous patients benefit significantly from implant-supported overdenture prostheses. The purpose of this systematic review was to evaluate the cost-effectiveness of implant-supported overdentures (IODs) for edentulous patients. MATERIALS AND METHODS: The search was limited to studies written in English and included an electronic and manual search through MEDLINE (Ovid, 1946 to November 2015), Embase (Ovid, 1966 to November 2015), Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials (CENTRAL) (to November 2015), and PubMed (to November 2015)...

PURPOSE: Precisely designed jaw reconstruction rehabilitation (JRR) is important to the integrity of the jaw structure and oral functions. Advanced three-dimensional (3D) digital surgical design and simulation (SDS) techniques have the potential to reduce time to reconstructive and dental treatment completion, thereby promoting early functional oral rehabilitation. This study investigated the use of SDS in JRR procedures. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A retrospective chart review was conducted on adult head and neck tumor (HNT) participants who completed JRR treatment with a fibular free flap (FFF) reconstruction...

PURPOSE: The purpose of this study was to fabricate a prototype nonmetal clasp denture using computer-aided design/computer-assisted manufacture (CAD/CAM) technology. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A partially edentulous mandibular working cast was scanned using an optical scanner. A sectional denture separated by two parts was designed on the scanned cast. These parts were milled and combined, and adhered using an adhesive luting agent. RESULTS: The completed denture was delivered on the working cast and provided an excellent level of fitness...

Digital impressions can be a useful option that reduces patient discomfort and simplifies clinical procedures such as accurate impression recordings. In this report, a patient with a partial maxillectomy was managed with a metal frame fabricated from a digital impression through an intraoral scanner. The final impression employed the altered cast technique for the fabrication of the obturator.

The aim of this study was to identify mechanical complications associated with Nobel Biocare's angled screw channel (ASC) restorations following provision of the definitive crown. All ASC restorations provided between 1 January 2014 and 19 January 2016 were identified. Patients' clinical records were reviewed for demographic details, implant characteristics, occlusal considerations, and complications. A total of 84 implants placed in 60 patients were included. Three patients (4%) returned with mechanical complications, but the majority (n = 81; 96%) had no recorded complications...

PURPOSE: The aim of this study was to examine whether psychopathologic profile is related to the location of pain in temporomandibular disorder (TMD) patients with myofascial and/or temporomandibular joint pain. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A total of 75 painful TMD patients (39 women and 36 men) participated in the study. Participants were divided into three groups (myogenous, arthrogenous, and mixed) using the Research Diagnostic Criteria for TMD (RDC/TMD) Axis I guidelines for assessment of TMD signs and symptoms...
