    6. Osseofuse HexaPlus Dental Implants: A 6-Year Retrospective Follow-Up of Over 250 Implants

    Advances in technology have allowed contemporary dental implant systems to achieve success rates that routinely exceed 95% across all brands and models. With such predictable success, clinicians often base their choice for dental implants on certain unique features associated with different systems. While some clinicians focus on costs associated with dental implant systems, others seek ease of use and simplicity. The following retrospective report documents use of more than 250 Osseofuse® HexaPlus™ dental implants by multiple private practicing clinicians and provide a discussion regarding the unique attributes that compelled these clinicians to choose this system over others.

    16. Immediate Implant Post-Extraction of Impacted Maxillary Canine: A Clinical Case Report

    This clinical report outlines the surgical and restorative steps involved when a patient presented with an impacted maxillary canine. The patient was treated with extraction and immediate implant placement. This was a challenge due to the bone resorption frequently associated with complex tooth extraction that often necessitates bone regeneration in these cases. This report suggests that this treatment for maxillary impacted canines with dental implants is viable with a good outcome both functionally and aesthetically, although more work is needed to strengthen an adequate protocol of this treatment alternative.

    22. An Economical Approach to the Establishment of Occlusal Guidances: A Case Report

    Whenever treatment is performed on a patient that does not have a concrete foundation of evidence in the literature, one must always consider the ethical considerations before performing irreversible treatment. At all costs, respecting patient autonomy and practicing within a standard of care that is nonmaleficence must always occur. The topic of occlusal rehabilitation and the value of the literature available on the topic are of much discussion in dentistry. After an exhaustive literature search, the same conclusions can be drawn time after time, more research is needed, however many of the research articles analyzed gave recommendations to provide a functional and optimal standard of care when modifying or establishing occlusal scheme in a patient.

    30. Prosthetic Implant Management of Extraction Site after the Removal of a Single Anterior Tooth

    The EDS classification has its importance in helping the clinician in establishing appropriate plan for surgical implant treatment. This classification came short and no detailed recommendation of the provisional stage was described before and after surgical treatment for the esthetic zone. The purpose of this paper is to describe all possible provisional techniques available to restore a single tooth in the anterior esthetic zone and to give recommendations to the preferable techniques during site development and implant placement according to the EDS classification. It is strongly advisable to have a preplanning session for the preparation of a vacuum heat formed template and ovate pontic(s).
