Vertical ridge augmentation in the posterior mandible is a technique-sensitive procedure that requires adequate anatomical knowledge and precise surgical skills to minimize the risk of complications. One of the most important but also challenging aspects of the surgical technique is proper flap management to allow for passive flap closure and reduce the chances of postoperative complications affecting deep anatomical spaces. This article presents a detailed description of a novel lingual flap advancement technique and its validation via a split-mouth, comparative study using a cadaver model...

Interest has recently developed in the purposeful retention of root fragments with their periodontal apparatus to support bone and soft tissue at immediate implant sites in the esthetic zone. This methodology is designed to avoid bone grafting, connective tissue grafts, and the use of membranes and may have short-term benefits in terms of tissue preservation. However, it is not completely without long-term risks. At times, implants may be unintentionally placed into edentulous sites where root fragments remain...

Leoney Andonissamy, N Sri Vidhya
Implant dentistry has provided a lot of surgical as well as prosthetic techniques for improving the success of the implants. The surgical technique commonly followed now prior to implant placement is bone grafting procedure. One of the commonest techniques is the use of autologous block graft harvested from mandibular chin region. However, interference in healing as well as excessive bone resorption due to the use of removable provisional prosthesis over the bone grafted region has been commonly observed/reported...

PURPOSE: The greater and lesser palatine nerves and vessels supply the hard and soft palates, and the roots of these vessels and nerves run through a bony structure. However, the arrangement of blood vessels in the maxilla requires attention during clinical treatments, but detailed morphological information about changes in the greater and lesser palatine arteries and nerves during aging is unavailable. We therefore need detailed investigations of the morphology of the donor cadaver palatine using cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT) and macroscopic observations...

The production of removable dentures from intraoral scans has been problematic. In addition, the digital design and fabrication of a single-arch denture cannot be routinely managed. The workflow presented provides a proof of concept that an optical intraoral scan of the edentulous maxilla is feasible and that a functional single-arch maxillary denture can be designed and fabricated using a digital protocol.
