Typically, dentists spend many years training to learn how to prepare teeth for restorations. Whether the restoration comprises a filling, veneer, crown, inlay, onlay, or bridge, teeth often require preparation to allow adequate space to accommodate the thickness of the restorative material. However, dentists may face a dilemma if a patient inquires about receiving an enhanced smile without tooth preparation. In such cases, the dentist needs to determine the optimal course of action for the patient. This also raises the issue of removing enamel, which is perhaps the most prized commodity in the dentition...

Implant stability is a key consideration when determining the point in time a dental implant should be loaded. Often a change in implant stability is observed as healing progresses from initial mechanical stability to biologic stability, ie, osseointegration, during the bone modeling/remodeling process. This change in stability can be objectively measured using resonance frequency analysis (RFA). Because bone healing varies from patient to patient, the timing of this sequence may be unpredictable; in a small subset of patients the drop in implant stability can be quite precipitous and profound...

As digital technology evolves, an increasing number of tools are becoming available to improve team communication during the treatment planning and provision of restorative dentistry. The esthetic relationships among the face, teeth, and tissue can be analyzed using high-quality photographs, presentation software, and video capture, all critical elements for cases requiring digital dentofacial integration. Video capture communicates maximum lip movement and tooth reveal during speech with precision and ease...

Whether or not a second molar should be replaced after its removal is debatable. To assess the evidence and discuss the pros and cons of replacing a missing second molar with a dental implant restoration, the authors searched the literature for articles that evaluated the following factors: chewing efficiency, tooth loss, super-eruption, extrusion, over-eruption, and occlusal interferences. The data indicated that replacing a second molar provides some increased masticatory performance, but first-molar occlusion facilitates 90% chewing efficiency...

Collaboration with other health professionals can be challenging when attempting to coordinate healthcare before, during, and after pregnancy. However, advantages of interdisciplinary and interprofessional collaborative approaches include facilitation of accurate and timely diagnosis and optimally sequenced treatment for improved health outcomes. This article reviews the current guidelines fostering collaboration between dental professionals and members of the perinatal team and identifies the roles of healthcare providers to support the care of women around the time of pregnancy...

Paul S Petrungaro, Gregori M Kurtzman, Santiago Gonzales, Carlos Villegas
Treatment of severely resorbed partially or completely edentulous maxillae can include the utilization of the zygomatic process for immediate implant fixation and stabilization with immediate function. This approach may alleviate the need for significant grafting to enable implant placement in the posterior maxilla and allow implants to be placed into denser, more stable bone. Zygomatic implants, which have been used clinically for the past 20 years in the treatment of the severely resorbed maxilla, allow implant placement to support fixed prosthetics...

Paul Fletcher, Dennis P Tarnow
Treatment of peri-implantitis is typically most successful when a full-thickness surgical flap is elevated to access the contaminated implant surface and the bone loss that has occurred. This approach, however, can be problematic. Primary flap approximation can be challenging after a regenerative procedure, especially with a shallow vestibule, thin mucosa, or minimal zone of keratinized tissue. Incomplete wound closure and soft-tissue dehiscence can lead to membrane and graft exposure. In medicine, minimally invasive techniques have been developed and are being used in an increasing variety of procedures...

Over the course of several decades implant dentistry has evolved to include 3-dimensionally (3D) planned and guided surgery. One of the latest innovations is dynamic navigation, which may allow surgeons to place implants with accuracy similar to stereolithographic guides based on 3D, prosthetically directed plans. Benefits of dynamically guided surgery include real-time feedback, a streamlined digital workflow, improved surgical visualization, and adaptability to intraoperative findings. This article discusses the technology and workflow of dynamic navigation and its application for guided implant placement...

Hom-Lay Wang, Ann M Decker
Trauma from occlusion remains an important concept in dentistry. Traumatic occlusion affects the biological system through a series of events that induces an aseptic inflammatory response and bone resorption. Clinical evidence of these biological events is present in the form of active traumatic lesions or adaptive mechanisms. If these clinical signs are not identified prior to periodontal surgery, failure of the procedure could result due to an exacerbated leukocyte presence and unresolving wound. However, if traumatic occlusion is adjusted, evidence demonstrates that even large inflammatory events such as replantation of an avulsed tooth can be successful...

P D Miller
Published more than three decades ago, the original classification of marginal tissue recession described four classes of recession. For example, in Miller Class III recession, there were different scenarios in which complete root coverage could not be achieved. Today, however, newer surgical techniques have made it possible for clinicians to potentially achieve complete root coverage when interdental bone loss exists. Currently, dentistry has a better understanding of the role of interdental papilla. Therefore, this article presents a new classification of papilla form that emphasizes the significance of the width and height of the papilla...

Loss of interdental papilla due to trauma or inflammatory periodontal diseases presents significant esthetic-zone challenges to clinicians. Miniscule working spaces and limited blood supply to these areas render conventional surgical techniques somewhat unpredictable. The implementation of vertical releasing incisions can further jeopardize blood supply and leave unattractive scarring upon healing. This article discusses a surgical technique utilizing microscopes and microsurgical instruments to more effectively achieve esthetic results...

Many papillary preservation flap techniques exist for both resective and regenerative purposes. This article describes a papillary retention design based on palatal access showing a successful long-term outcome. The papilla preservation approach detailed here, which is a modification of Friedman's beveled flap for the palate, circumvents any manipulation of interproximal or buccal tissue, leaving papillary tissue untouched. Indications for this approach are very specific and its application is somewhat limited...

Bradley S McAllister, V Thomas Eshraghi, Kyle A Malloy
Beyond the traditional monotherapy of connective tissue grafting, the combination of orthodontic therapy, soft-tissue grafting, and bone grafting with biologics may provide ideal treatment for complex recession defects with root prominence, thin tissues, and buccal plate dehiscences. The authors propose the benefits of performing a preoperative evaluation of complex mucogingival defects with cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT) technology and then considering surgical management with modalities like bone grafting and orthodontics in addition to the classic soft-tissue grafting approach...

Dental treatment for periodontally compromised patients can be highly complicated and challenging. This article addresses the effectiveness of contemporary periodontal treatment modalities by depicting clinical cases of periodontal restoration and health that have been maintained for 20 or more years. The cases incorporate four key steps vital to achieving successful treatment of chronic adult periodontitis: debridement, occlusal stabilization, pocket elimination, and maintenance. These cases demonstrate proof of principle that if the treatment is carefully planned and executed precisely, the natural dentition can be maintained for long periods of time even in periodontally compromised patients...
