Clinical Reports

Digital technologies have enabled simplified and predictable protocols for interdisciplinary treatment planning, surgical placement and prosthetic implant rehabilitation. This case study highlights how to use the TRIOS intraoral scanner and 3Shape scan bodies, and seamlessly transfer the digital data to 3Shape Dental System software for the design process of...
Carestream Dental’s CS 8100 3D features the CS MAR (Metal Artifact Reduction) technology, which drastically reduces metal artefacts caused by dental restorations, implants, and fillings. As discussed by Dr Hanke Faust in the following case, this feature can compare images dynamically to obtain a more accurate and advanced diagnosis.Dr...
The advances in digital technology have evolved dental models into highly reliable tools for human identification. Addressing the limitations of traditional stone models and DNA analysis, it is now possible to utilise 3D digital palatal model to distinguish monozygotic (MZ) twins.By Dr Botond Simon, Dr Ajang Armin Farid, Dr...
Technological advancement in dentistry has opened up more treatment possibilities to achieve better clinical results and upgrade patient comfort. The following discusses how the Er:YAG laser system can stimulate the healing process and reduce post-operative complications in cases of endodontic microsurgery.By Dr Igor KriznarA 46-year-old female patient was referred...
There are numerous ways to restore someone’s smile, and a one-size-fits-all solution is almost impossible. Thus, the following addresses the common dilemma of clinicians in restoring a “borderline” case and how effective communication between patient, dentist and lab ceramist is crucial in achieving the desired results.By Dr Mansingh PatilMinimally...
Mectron COMBI touch combines a multifunctional piezoelectric scaler and a jet polisher in a single device designed for complete dental prophylaxis. To achieve excellent results, this article discusses the operating procedure of this device and how air-polishing can be reliable, effective and efficient in the mechanical removal of bacterial...
A variety of factors have to be considered when performing implant restorations on the anterior maxillary region given its high aesthetic demands. Dr Kuoching Chen (Taiwan) shares three cases to discuss novel techniques addressing the challenges of anterior implant placement.By Dr Kuoching ChenCase 1A 50-year-old male patient with fair...
Due to bone resorption secondary to tooth extraction, clinicians commonly perform maxillary sinus lift procedure to restore missing upper first molar with an implant, especially if the site is left untreated for a long time. But an alternative and more conservative treatment approach using a “short and fat” implant...
The internal anatomy of human teeth often consists of a highly complicated network of multi-planar curved and anastomotic canals. Thus, reaching the biological and design objectives of root canal instrumentation in severely curved canal systems might be extremely challenging. In this paper, Dr Antonis Chaniotis discusses a safer and...
The following clinical report is a part of vertical ridge augmentation (VRA) case series using different techniques by Drs Chang I C Teoh and Kevin Ng. In this paper, they addressed a vertical bone defect on an area with high aesthetic demands by employing guided bone regeneration (GBR) technique.INTRODUCTIONDental...
