Conventional and immediate loading with final n!ce screw-retained crowns

September 4, 2019

Thanks to the very high accuracy of modern intra-oral scanners, excellent design software and reliable production systems, restoring an implant with a chairside model is now a reliable treatment with numerous advantages for the patient. The same-day solution with final materials produces excellent implant crowns in a chairside environment.

Torsional resistance of two nickel-titanium rotary instruments: A comparative study

August 19, 2019

This study explores how heat treatment less significantly influences (increasing or decreasing) torsional resistance when compared to the high increase in flexibility and fatigue resistance reported in many published articles. Moreover, torsional fracture occurs extremely rapidly when an instrument’s tip becomes blocked.

The KATANA Zirconia Block—Clinical experiences from Italy

June 14, 2019

Earlier this year, Kuraray Noritake Dental invited dental professionals from all over Europe to a symposium in Berlin in Germany that highlighted the newest research and clinical findings on the KATANA Zirconia Block, the latest addition to the KATANA family. One of the presenters was Dr Nicola Scotti, an assistant professor at the Department of Cariology and Operative Dentistry at the University of Turin’s Dental School and operator of his own private practice.

Edelweiss PEDIATRIC CROWNs: A new and innovative approach to restoring primary teeth

May 27, 2019

The management of dental caries in children is necessary because caries is a progressive disease which can eventually damage the tooth and can be detrimental to the permanent teeth and the child’s general well-being. As outlined in this clinical case, edelweiss PEDIATRIC CROWNs are a simple solution which is aesthetic but also functional in providing an effective treatment option for the restoration of decayed primary teeth.

Orthograde apical application of an MTA plug in a tooth without constriction

October 8, 2018

The minor apical foramen should be maintained at its initial position and size after chemomechanical endodontic procedures. If the apical constriction is breached and transported, cleaning procedures will be compromised and obturation significantly difficult to carry out well.

This clinical case describes the latest equipment, materials and evidence-based techniques that are available to help dentists optimise all clinical stages of indirect adhesive restorative procedures.

3-D Virtual Planning Concepts: Maxillary Implant Supported Removable or Fixed Prostheses

July 21, 2015

“Pre-surgical prosthetic planning” can be defined as the process of accumulating diagnostic information to determine which course of treatment should be considered for the fully edentate patient. The first step in patient evaluation should include conventional periapical radiographs, panoramic radiographs, oral examination, and mounted, articulated study casts. In the completely edentulous patient it is essential for the clinician to assess several important aspects of the individual anatomical presentation including vertical dimension of occlusion, lip support, phonetics, smile line, over-jet, overbite, ridge contours, and a basic understanding of the underlying bone structures. The accumulation of preliminary data afforded by conventional diagnostics provides a foundation to prepare a course of treatment for the patient. However, if the review of findings is based upon a two-dimensional panoramic radiograph, it may not be accurate in appreciating the true spatial positioning of vital structures such as the incisal canal, the floor of the nose, or the maxillary sinus. To fully understand each individual patient’s actual bone anatomy, it is essential that clinicians adopt an innovative set of virtual, threedimensional tools.

Forensic odontology— Broader than just identification

June 3, 2015

Nowadays, most people will associate forensic dentistry primarily with identification and bite mark analysis. These areas do indeed form the majority of an odontologist’s workload. There are, however, other aspects of the discipline that are just as important but perhaps less well known. These include cranio-facial trauma analysis, age estimation for both living and deceased individuals, dental manifestations of child abuse, dental malpractice investigations, as well as dental insurance fraud.
