6. Creeping Attachment After Xenogenic Collagen Matrix Placement for Multiple Recessions Treatment: A Discussion of Two Case Reports
The combination of coronally advanced flap (CAF) with a subepithelial connective tissue graft (SCTG) is the gold standard for root coverage treatment. Xenografts represent a viable alternative to the SCTG. The following cases represent the application of repositioning of the cementoenamel junction (CEJ) where a xenogeneic collagen matrix (CM) was used in combination with a CAF for the treatment of multiple recession defects. The combination of CM, repositioning of the CEJ and strict post-operative protocol showed creeping attachment twelve months post-operatively. The creeping attachment noted, ranged from 0.5-2mm.
16. Effectiveness of a Novel Approach for Soft Tissue Augmentation in a Severe Reabsorbed Alveolar Ridge
Severe deformity of the alveolar ridge occurs frequently after traumatic teeth loss, causing severe bone resorption, esthetic/functional compromises, and represents a challenge for surgeons. This article aims to present the effectiveness of a novel approach for soft tissue augmentation in which a pedicle graft and connective tissue graft are used to rehabilitate severe defects in the aesthetic zone.
24. Histologic Analysis of the Newly Formed Bone after Maxillary Sinus Augmentation witMh Xenograft Material
The objective of this study was to evaluate the vitality of newly formed bone after maxillary sinus augmentation completed with Xenograft (NuOss XC SinusTM) Bone Composite. A histomorphometric analysis determined a clinically evident presence of vital, newly formed bone in the specimens with the average of 97% (by the area of examination). Clinical radiographic analysis of the pre-augmentation and post-augmentation measurements established that in all augmented sites a consistent and statistically measurable increase of the bone structure was achieved.
32. Rehabilitation of Partially Edentulous Patient with Mandibular Teeth Supported Bar Overdenture: A Case Report
The teeth-supported overdenture is one of the best and most comfortable modalities of treatment for the patients with few remaining teeth. The use of attachments can further increase the retention of the overdenture prosthesis, but is usually limited by the insufficient space available and cost factors. The availability of different types of attachments has enabled a wide variety of treatment options. Therefore, the modern clinician must consider use of overdentures whenever possible.
