Summary:

The treatment of advanced furcation lesions may require the removal of a portion of the crown and its associated root, or resection of only one root from a multi rooted tooth. This resective-type of therapy is a definitive treatment because it predictably enables clinicians to better access the remaining tooth structure for periodontal and subsequent prosthetic therapy. The morphology of tooth preparation for hemisective periodontal therapy is critical to facilitate the patient's ability to perform optimal long-term maintenance of this affected area. Prosthetic treatment planning is often complicated when periodontal attachment loss, caries, or tooth fracture involves the furcation area of the multirooted molars. Although such involvement invariably diminishes the long-term prognosis of the affected teeth, extraction is not necessarily an option. Hemisective periodontal therapy, which involves removal of the involved root and its associated crown portion, is one of several treatment modalities that can be used in such cases.

Acquiring and investigating diagnostic information can be analogous to piecing together a puzzle. As each piece fits, a picture begins to emerge. but if the puzzle contains too many pieces and inherently becomes more complex, frustration mounts and elucidating the pIcture becomes more difficult. Therefore, the practitioner must…

Using Cross-Sectional Tomography to Perform Exploratory Radiography
Since osseointegration was first introduced by Branemark, dental implants have been used increasingly to replace missing teeth. The high predictability of implant success has been well documented. Unfortunately, there are numerous failures in implant dentistry. The primary failure on endosseous dental implants include improper diagnosis, treatment planning, and/or sequenceing; poor periodontal tissue management and/or maintenance; improper implant position at surgery; and aesthetic requirements…

From 2D to 3D: The Benefits of 3D-X-ray in the Different Fields of Dentistry
CBCT(Cone Beam Computed Tomography) has developed in the last years from a highly specialized used subject used mainly by specialized surgeons and implantologists to a wide field of indications, used mostly by general practitioners, periodontists, endodontists, general implantologists and orthodontists. The picture quality has increased drastically so the 3-D X-ray techniques are able to show aspects that 2-D X-ray-techniques are unable to present. 3-D X-ray systems are linked today to other diagnostic and electro-mechanical systems as there are automaticised software measure and diagnostic tools, intra and extra-oral scanning systems and CAD-CAM-milling-systems. That increases the diagnostic and treatment possibilities this systems offers to the users.

Non-Surgical Periodontal Therapy: Decision Making in the 21st Century Premium Member Content

Non-Surgical Periodontal Therapy: Decision Making in the 21st Century
Non-surgical periodontal therapy is a vital part of everyday dental practice. Since the majority of periodontal therapy is performed by general dentists and dental hygienists, it is critical that clinicians have all of the requisite skills and information needed to perform these services at the highest level possible. The purpose of this presentation is to provide the latest evidence- and practice- based information on periodontal debridement and adjunctive therapies that can improve patient outcomes. Though surgical procedures may still need to be performed in some sites, the majority of inflammatory periodontal disease can be eliminated or reduced significantly using the techniques and protocols discussed in this educational segment on non-surgical periodontal therapy.
