REVIEW
Hamdan S Alghamdi
Nowadays, dental implants have become more common treatment for replacing missing teeth and aim to improve chewing efficiency, physical health, and esthetics. The favorable clinical performance of dental implants has been attributed to their firm osseointegration, as introduced by Brånemark in 1965. Although the survival rate of dental implants over a 10-year observation has been reported to be higher than 90% in totally edentulous jaws, the clinical outcome of implant treatment is challenged in compromised (bone) conditions, as are frequently present in elderly people...

This case describes a female patient with agenesis of the maxillary right lateral incisor, with her permanent canine in its position and the deciduous canine retained. Additionally, she presented with a maxillary left peg lateral incisor. To solve her functional and esthetic complaints, a multidisciplinary approach involving perio-restorative procedures was proposed. Periodontal surgeries were performed to align the gingival contour, and the restorative approach utilized ceramic veneers. At the 18-month clinical and radiographic follow-up, the treatment outcome was stable, with maintenance of the clinical results achieved and without any sign of deciduous tooth resorption...

The creation of healing gardens for persons with Alzheimer's disease and related diseases (ADRD) offers vast potential. They can play a role in the scaffolding of cognitive disorders, emotional stress, sensory processing, sense of harmony, and appeasement. These effects are achieved through a distributed interplay of psychological functions with the immediate environment and local culture on the one hand, and dialogue on the other. The garden, a natural canvas created by man, shares with art the ability to foster an esthetic sense for which the perception can be measured by functional neurological imaging exploration...

The prosthetic rehabilitation of a large anophthalmic socket is always a challenge. It demands an equally sized ocular prosthesis to replace lost tissue volume. A conventional solid acrylic ocular prosthesis may be deterrent to retention and esthetics because of its weight, which can be reduced by eliminating the mass of material within it. This article attempts to present a simplified and accurate technique to fabricate a hollow ocular prosthesis using silicone putty cavity form. It is removed prior to final processing and serves to ensure appropriate uniform thickness of acrylic resin and optimal weight reduction of the definitive prosthesis without compromising mobility, esthetics, and structural integrity...
