A restoration using Lava Plus and VITA VM 9- Prosthetic Implant Perfection
Article Date: Oct 16, 2014 Vol 13, No 8
Gerhard Neuendorff, Master Dental Technician, Dr. Karl-Ludwig Ackermann,Christine Hammerl-Riempp, Master Dental Technician

In the group practice run by Dr. K. L. Ackermann and Dr. A. Kirsch, a 30-year-old patient presented requesting a natural and balanced anterior appearance (Fig. 1a and 1b): tooth 12 was not worth retaining. The condition of the bone was inadequate, the contours of the gingival margin were uneven, and the teeth in regions 12 and 22 were not the same width. On consultation with the patient, the width of the crown on tooth 12 was to be tailored to match tooth 22, and accordingly, a gap retained between tooth 11 and 12.

Beyond 3-D Four-Dimensional Implant Placement and the Microgap
Article Date: Sep 26, 2014 Vol 13, No 7
Robert Salisbury, RDT

There are three parts to a two-piece implant. Of course, there is the actual implant (part one) and the abutment with screw (part two), as seen in Figure 1. But it’s the third part that has been the focus of discussion in recent years. This third part forms only when the first two are assembled: it’s the microgap, which resides in what is called the trans-mucosal zone or the emergent profile. See Figures 2 and 2A. The microgap is the place where the implant and the abutment meet, above the bone but below the tissue. Of primary concern, it’s where bacteria can breed, causing maintenance and hygiene issues, or even implant failure.

Forced Friction Friction from telescopic implant, Part II
Article Date: Mar 03, 2014 Vol 13, No 3
Axel Muhlhauser

The case: One of four abutment teeth falls out and reduces the friction of the telescopic denture in the anterior region. In addition, the patient is missing parts of their forward gums due to illness. An immediate implant has already been installed. In the second part of his article, Axel Mühlhäuser describes the production of the secondary construction.

Milled Bar Overdentures Protocol and Procedures
Article Date: Feb 03, 2014 Vol 13, No 2
Dennis Urban, CDT

When full implant dentures requiring a milled bar is prescribed, the proper protocol and procedure are of extreme importance. The proper impression, bite registration, verification index, denture tooth set-up, internal framework and bar design are of the utmost importance. There are too many instances where the doctor wants to take a shortcut by eliminating the verification index or the set-up. Both of these procedures are a must for a successful overdenture case.

Complex Oral Rehabilitation on Implants
Article Date: Jul 01, 2013 Vol 12, No 7
Cristina Petri, DT

There are situations when in the total edentulous arches after implants were inserted, fixed dental works may be
achieved. The patients want fixed, metal ceramic or zirconium – based works most frequently, but in some cases, when due to patients’ osseous substance, implants insertion may be achieved only in certain areas without applying augmentation or bone grafting, and in these situations we have to adapt to the case. Typically for these situations, fixed prosthetic works can no longer be achieved and different types of anchored works by means of telescopes, spherical systems, locator or Dolder systems are considered.
The aesthetic setup of this type of works is ensured by light materials of composites kind.

Virtual Construction of an Implant Bridge Successfully Computerized!
Article Date: Jul 01, 2013 Vol 12, No 7
Kay Amberg, MDT, Knut Amberg, DDS

Especially for crown and bridge prosthetics CAD/CAM manufactured restorations have become standard. The use of digital techniques allows us to economically create reproducible prostheses of high quality. There is a
wide range of usable materials available, from acrylics to ceramics and metals. In addition the range of  indications increases have also expanded the field of applications for this technique.

A Complex Implant Case: How to Make Long Term Temporaries for a Bridge
Article Date: Apr 01, 2013 Vol 12, No 4
Jason M. Rogers, Luke S. Kahng, CDT

Introduction
Patients with implants may need a long-term temporization solution while the clinician manages the tissue and gum area and waits for it to heal. This can take some time and may require quite a bit of patience on everyone’s
part. Our case study patient understood that it would take some time to restore her teeth and that temporization was an important step in the process.

Conventional Implant Treatment Efficient and Aesthetically Pleasing

Carlo Borromeo

These days, good organisation and optimal timing combined with the correct use of materials and technology are essential if dental work is to be a success. Standards of precision and safety must never fall, despite today's
increasingly tough price competition. Therefore, we should wherever possible use materials that can help us to maintain these standards.

Nothing is Impossible
Article Date: Feb 15, 2013 Vol 12, No 2
Dr. Jean M. Meyer, Gilles Philip, DT

The diagnosis of hypodontia of the lateral incisors usually requires using implants to replace the missing teeth, yet this method is only applicable if the initial situation is ideal. In the following article, the authors discuss a therapy approach for a more complicated initial situation.
