She came to my practice with an unsatisfactory tooth 21, and wanted this tooth replaced. 21 was previously root-filled and restored with a post and metal-ceramic crown.

By | 2017-08-17T08:29:38+00:00 October 21st, 2016|Clinical Cases, Dental Implants, Digital Dentistry|

Successful immediate implant placement associated with immediate loading remains one of the biggest clinical challenges. In addition to the placement of an implant into a tooth socket concurrently with extraction, the creation of a screw-retained CAD/CAM provisional prosthetic restoration is critical for the esthetic outcome. Currently, the procedure can be achieved using a conventional [...]

By | 2017-08-17T08:29:39+00:00 October 10th, 2016|Clinical Cases, Dental Implants, Dental Prosthetics|

Self-Directed Learning (SDL), a process by which individuals take the initiative – with or without the assistance of others – in diagnosing their own learning needs and formulating learning goals, has been identified as an essential skill for clinicians. As dental clinicians, our busy patient schedules and time constraints prevent us from updating our [...]

"Esthetic rehabilitation of the anterior segment is one of the biggest challenges of modern restorative orthodontics. An artificial gum can be a quick, simple and cheaper solution for missing gum tissue restoration. It makes guided bone regeneration and mucous, gingival and periodontal surgery unnecessary, options which may not be suitable for some patients. It [...]

By | 2017-08-17T08:29:44+00:00 July 20th, 2016|Clinical Cases, Dental Implants, Science|

Zirconia (zirconium dioxide, ZrO2) is a popular material in restorative dentistry for implant abutments due to its superior mechanical properties compared to other ceramics (Manicone et al., 2007). The whitish color allows for highly esthetic dental restorations especially in the anterior maxilla and for patients with thin mucosal biotype. An increasing number of third-party [...]
