Summary:

Proper diagnosis of tooth size for each patient is critical in treatment planning for aesthetic restorative dentistry. The goal of this study was to determine the clinically relevant range and mean distribution frequency of individual tooth width of the maxillary anterior dentition within a given population of patients. Mean values for restoration of tooth size were not interchangeable for the different group size of patients or respective tooth groups. The results of this study suggest that there exists a range value of maxillary anterior tooth width for both males and females. Gender differences are a critical factor in restoring an aesthetically pleasing smile.

Learning Objectives:

This article will discuss the clinical significance of tooth biometry and distribution frequency, in which size for tooth restoration may vary among patients of different age, race, or sex. Upon reading this article, the reader should:

  • Become more familiar with the range of individual tooth width of the maxillary anterior dentition and their mean distribution frequencies.
  • Understand that gender differences may exist affecting the width of maxillary anterior teeth.

Intraoral Autogenous Block Onlay Bone Grafting for ExtensiveReconstruction of Atrophic Maxillary Alveolar Ridges

Intraoral Autogenous Block Onlay Bone Grafting for ExtensiveReconstruction of Atrophic Maxillary Alveolar Ridges
Autologous bone grafting used with dental implants was originally described by Bränemarketal in 1975, and is now a well-accepted procedure in oral and maxillofacial rehabilitation.Placement of an endosseous implant requires sufficient bone volume for complete bone coverage. Furthermore, the pattern of ridge resorption contributes to an unfavorable maxillomandibular relationship, requires angulations of the implants and/or angled abutments, and affects the proximity of adjacent facial concavities(maxillary sinus, nasal cavity) and vital structures(mandibular nerve).

Modern Occlusal Concepts in Esthetic & Implant Dentistry

Modern Occlusal Concepts in Esthetic & Implant Dentistry
Occlusion is probably not one of the most popular topics in dental meetings and conferences nowadays especially if compared to implants and esthetics. Indeed it was considered in dentistry much more important just a few years ago than it is now. There is growing distance between the evolution of scientific research in the field, including available recent literature and several popular clinical approaches. It seems even difficult to have universal definitions related to this topic: the term “occlusion” itself is often associated with different adjectives to define it and many other terms are used with quite often differences in meaning, each of us gives a different meaning to the same terms, according to differences in treatment philosophies or in different specialties.

Pure Dental Esthetics – From Titanium to Zirconia
The replacement of a single tooth with dental implants, especially when the patient has a high smile line, has been an esthetic challenge in implant dentistry. Typically, it requires very careful stages to create the final restoration as natural as possible. When there is loss of soft tissues, carefully made dental-gingival prosthesis becomes an alternative of therapy. For all cases with high smile line, achieving perfection in color and texture of the restoration it's not an easy task. Currently there are some ways to achieve better aesthetic results, including digital scanning of colors. This presentation describes step-by-step the application of a protocol developed in our clinic. Several cases will be discussed. In addition, recent technologies such as zirconium implants are also be discussed.

Microscopic Dentistry; Practical Use in Restorative Dentistry Today
Restorative dentistry has changed in recent years. New materials and techniques allow the execution of partial restorations, direct and indirect, with metal-free techniques and started a true partnership between this discipline and prosthodontics. A good esthetic and functional rehabilitation starts from the proper clinical evaluation of the patient and of his problems, planning all the clinical and laboratory procedures in order to reduce the possibility of performing a subpar restoration. The use of high magnification in the right steps can improve our clinical result and optimize the session with the patient. The goal is to achieve the right balance between biology, esthetic and function by applying a minimally invasive approach.
