#1
Rania Livada, Jacob Shiloah, K Mark Anderson, William R Callahan
The lateral periodontal cyst is a rare benign lesion that is generally asymptomatic and commonly discovered by routine intraoral radiography. Reports on proper management of this lesion are readily available. However, the literature is sparse regarding the long-term outcomes following surgery. A traditional radiographic technique does not provide an adequate image of the healing, and a patient may resist the prospect of a reentry procedure. The current report is the first to utilize a cone-beam computed tomography scan to evaluate the healing potential of a freeze-dried bone allograft approximately 18 months postoperatively...

Jeffrey M Rosenberg
The concept of minimally invasive dentistry is based on preserving tooth structure, especially enamel. A conservative method to treat discolored teeth that have diastemas is a freehand additive technique using composite resin. While selecting the correct shade of resin can be challenging, newer composite resin formulations are being developed with optical properties that enable the material to more effectively blend into the dentition. This case report describes the use of conservative approaches and materials to treat discolored, unevenly spaced teeth and restore harmony and balance to a patient's smile...

Nancy E Hartrick, Steven R Acker
This case demonstrates how a fully digital technique was used to restore the mandibular arch to proper function and improved esthetics. The initial treatment plan to restore implants replacing the lower right molars had to be altered due to space limitations. A direct deprogrammer was utilized to determine the proper jaw relationship at an acceptable occlusal vertical dimension. A computer-aided design system was employed to digitally create and fabricate implant/abutment-supported cement-retained lithium-disilicate crowns, toothsupported lithium-disilicate crowns, and screw-retained hybrid abutment lithium-disilicate crowns in one visit...

Of all the modalities reported to decrease orthodontic treatment time, corticotomy-accelerated orthodontics (CAO) is the only evidence-based approach. The aim of this article is to critically review the available evidence and to summarize the pros and cons of CAO. Articles published in the last 15 years related to CAO were screened and critically assessed. Based on the literature, CAO results in acceleration of the orthodontic treatment rate as much as three times on average, in addition to many benefits not commonly recognized by the profession or reported in the literature...

Mark Donaldson, Jason H Goodchild
Though uncommon, medical emergencies in the dental office are harrowing occurrences that can be the result of adverse drug reactions. Pharmacological antagonists have been developed for administration as reversal agents in emergency situations in which patients may have an untoward effect, typically caused by too much medication. Dental practitioners should be familiar with these agents to keep patients safe and help mitigate drug-induced medical emergencies. This article reviews the pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic principles of pharmacological antagonists; it emphasizes six specific reversal agents as they relate to the clinical practice of dentistry: naloxone, flumazenil, epinephrine, diphenhydramine, phentolamine, and atropine...

The human papillomavirus (HPV) family has been associated with many cancers, including oral cancer. Recent studies have also revealed HPV presence from healthy adult and pediatric patient saliva samples, though much less is known about the oral prevalence of high-risk HPV in healthy children and adolescents. The primary goal of this project was to assess the prevalence of HPV within a pediatric dental clinic using non-invasively collected saliva. In brief, saliva was collected and DNA isolated to screen for HPV strains HPV6, HPV11, HPV16, and HPV18...

Clinical application of zirconia has been expanding due to the high strength properties it offers. Initial use of zirconia was as a coping or substructure material replacing cast metal. More recent formulations have been introduced for monolithic zirconia contour designs. New chairside computer-aided design and computeraided manufacturing (CAD/CAM) technology has made it possible for dentists to deliver 3-unit bridges in a single appointment. This case report will present such a clinical application.

Depending on the case, predictably seating today's esthetic indirect restorations can be challenging. Ultimately, the cementation and adhesive materials selected, combined with the techniques used for their placement, can greatly affect the quality and efficient delivery of laboratory-fabricated restorations. New adhesive bonding and cementation materials have the potential to simplify the delivery of indirect restorations and simultaneously reduce and/or eliminate many of the challenges clinicians face during the placement process...

The quality of the bond at the tooth-restoration interface is crucial to the clinical success of composite restorations. Not only is the adhesive crucial, but equally or even more important is the application. This article addresses pitfalls in the bonding technique, such as over-wetness/over-dryness, over-etching, airthinning, and evaporation. Dental adhesives that are considered forgiving are less technique sensitive, thus potentially yielding more reliable bonding under various clinical conditions.
