    ABSTRACT: When patients seek cosmetic dentistry, their main concern is how their new smile is going to appear. In trying to achieve a patient's desire for a more beautiful smile, a careful and comprehensive analysis must be completed to insure the desired outcome is achievable and will function for many years to come. The clinician's primary goal is to restore the patient's dentition to ideal form and function. Full mouth rehabilitations need to be done in a systematic way to ensure all the parameters of an esthetic and functional outcome are achieved. Copyright © 2015 Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved.

    ABSTRACT: Previously dentists focused on repair and maintenance of function. However, the emphasis of many patients and dentists is now on esthetics. Often there is a need for the disciplines of orthodontics, periodontics, restorative dentistry, and maxillofacial surgery to work together in order to achieve optimum results. Currently the sequencing planning process begins with esthetics and then function, structure, and ultimately biology. Copyright © 2015 Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved.

    ABSTRACT: This case report presents an interdisciplinary approach to achieve functioning occlusion and an aesthetically pleasing smile. This patient's concerns were spacing between upper front teeth and a gummy smile. The case was evaluated, and treatment was planned using a multidisciplinary approach. The patient rejected the option of orthognathic surgery to correct a skeletal problem. Treatment included orthodontics, osteoplasty, gingivoplasty, and porcelain veneer restorations to achieve the desired aesthetic result. Comprehensive orthodontics resulted in a functionally stable occlusion. Space distribution between maxillary anterior teeth with adequate overjet and overbite relationships allowed for conservative preparation to receive porcelain veneer restorations.

    ABSTRACT: Gummy smile cases are always esthetically demanding cases. This article presents a case treated with an interdisciplinary treatment approach and Digital Smile Approach (DSA) using Keynote (DSA), to predictably achieve an esthetic outcome for a patient with gummy smile. The importance of using questionnaires and checklists to facilitate the gathering of diagnostic data cannot be overemphasized. The acquired data must then be transferred to the design of the final restorations. The use of digital smile design has emerged as a powerful tool in cosmetic dentistry to help both practitioner and patient visualize the final outcome. Copyright © 2015 Elsevier Inc.

    ABSTRACT: A 26-year-old woman was referred to a periodontal surgical practice for concerns related to gingival recession. After several consultations among the orthodontist, periodontist, and cosmetic/restorative dentist, she decided to have surgically facilitated orthodontic therapy as part of a collaborative, interdisciplinary treatment planning process to correct her constricted maxillary arch form, augment thin dentoalveolar facial bone, simultaneously with gaining root coverage as well as improving attached gingiva width and mucogingival thickness. As a consequence of changing the arch form, an improvement in the buccal corridor space was gained which optimized her smile display. Copyright © 2015 Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved.

    ABSTRACT: The standards of dentistry are being elevated, with a greater emphasis being placed on esthetics along with functionality. Minimally invasive dentistry has become an essential component in creating restorations that are functional and have increased longevity. In the case discussed in this article, the patient underwent 9 months of orthodontic therapy to correct her improper overbite and overjet, and the spacing of her dentition so the teeth could be positioned for future minimally invasive restorations. Orthodontic therapy was paramount in positioning the teeth so that the future restorations would have ideal axial inclinations and be as minimally invasive as possible. Copyright © 2015 Elsevier Inc.

    ABSTRACT: Patients are concerned about dental disease and their appearance. Clinicians often must decide not only the type of restoration, but also the type of material for restoration that will provide aesthetics and longevity. A modern practitioner should know the pros and cons of different types of crowns and veneers. They are also responsible to provide treatment for patients with complicated medical histories. Risk assessments include current conditions, risks of recurrence, and suggestions for maintenance of restorations, as well as guidelines to promote the future health and well-being of the patient.

    ABSTRACT: Dental implants provide completely edentulous and partial edentulous patients the function and esthetics they had with natural dentition. It is critical to understand and apply predictable surgical principles when treatment planning and surgically restoring edentulous spaces with implants. This article defines basic implant concepts that should be meticulously followed for predictable results when treating patients and restoring dental implants. Topics include biological and functional considerations, biomechanical considerations, preoperative assessments, medical history and risk assessments, oral examinations, radiographic examinations, contraindications, and general treatment planning options.

    ABSTRACT: Dental implants have had tremendous improvement since their initial introduction into clinical practice. With ongoing advances in implant technology and materials, better data emerge to allow shorter time between placement and restoration. This allows the restorative dentist and surgeon to provide improved treatment options to patients. Most evidence that exists supports the practice of immediately placed (after extraction) and immediately loaded implants. Additional high-quality studies are still needed to develop specific guidelines for a standardized approach to immediate rehabilitation. Copyright © 2015 Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved.

    ABSTRACT: The structural and functional union of the implant with living bone is greatly influenced by the surface properties of the implant. The success of a dental implant depends on the chemical, physical, mechanical, and topographic characteristics of its surface. The influence of surface topography on osseointegration has translated to shorter healing times from implant placement to restoration. This article presents a discussion of surface characteristics and design of implants, which should allow the clinician to better understand osseointegration and information coming from implant manufacturers, allowing for better implant selection.

    ABSTRACT: Clinicians worldwide are increasingly adopting guided surgical applications for dental implants. Clinicians are becoming more aware of the benefits of proper planning through advanced imaging modalities and interactive treatment planning applications. All aspects of the planning phase are based on sound surgical and restorative fundamentals. As an integral part of the implant team, dental laboratories have now moved from analog to the digital world, providing the necessary support to the new digital workflow.

    ABSTRACT: The deficient alveolar ridge has been an impediment to the placement of dental implants in the past. A greater comprehension of bone biophysiology and biotechnology has greatly increased the surgical options available to rehabilitate these patients. Technology and regenerative science has also allowed clinicians to simplify some of the approaches to these patients. This article presents the authors' perspective on the current surgical treatment methodologies that have been most beneficial in reconstructing atrophic alveolar bone. Copyright © 2015 Elsevier Inc.

    ABSTRACT: Autogenous bone harvest is the gold standard for restoring deficiencies of the recipient site. A deficient site requires adequate grafting before placement of implants; therefore, proper understanding of the wide variety of grafting options is the key to successfully planned implant dentistry. This provides general dentists with a better understanding of autogenous bone harvest and the variety of techniques available to provide the best outcomes for the patient.

    ABSTRACT: Pneumatization of the maxillary sinus secondary to posterior maxillary tooth loss is an extremely common finding. Significant atrophy of the maxilla prevents implant placement in this region. For several decades, sinus augmentation has been used to develop these sites for dental implant placement. The main techniques for increasing the vertical bone height of the posterior maxilla are the transalveolar and lateral antrostomy approaches. The clinical and radiographic examinations dictate the appropriate method for each clinical situation. Both techniques have been shown to have high success rates. However, practitioners must be aware of potential complications and how to address them. Copyright © 2015 Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved.

    ABSTRACT: Injuries to branches of the trigeminal nerves are a known complication during dental implant placement. These injuries tend to be more severe than those experienced during other dentoalveolar procedures. This article reviews the types of nerve injuries and areas and situations of which clinicians should be cognizant when placing dental implants. Strategies to avoid injuries, and a management algorithm for suspected nerve injuries, are also discussed. Copyright © 2015 Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved.

    ABSTRACT: Allogeneic hematopoietic cell transplantation (allo-HCT) is used for the treatment of a variety of disorders, primarily hematologic malignancies. Graft-versus-host disease (GVHD) is a significant complication following allo-HCT and a major cause of morbidity and mortality. The oral cavity is frequently involved in GVHD, leading to pain, functional impairment, and reduced quality of life. Early diagnosis, management, and long-term follow-up of oral GVHD are important components of overall patient care.

    ABSTRACT: Nitrogen-containing and non-nitrogen-containing bisphosphonates have been implicated in the development of osteonecrosis of the jaw (ONJ), a condition termed bisphosphonate-related OHJ. Other antiresorptive drugs have been implicated in the development of OHJ, hence the new term antiresorptive drug-related ONJ. The underlying pathogenesis remains unclear, and no definite diagnosis or cure has been established for this debilitating condition. This article reviews some of the most common antiresorptive drugs with their associated risks of ONJ and the current understanding of the pathogenesis ONJ, and summarizes current clinical guidelines.
