    6. An Innovative Approach for the Selection, Generation and Recording of a Custom Emergence Profile Around Implants

    Currently the clinical dexterity required along with the time and cost involved has been a constant obstacle for the evolvement of the process of custom emergence profile development to a standard of care. This is the first report on the protocol of use of a novel system (VPI EPMS) that can assist the clinicians select, generate and record a custom emergence profile in a predictable way and a time and cost effective manner. 1 year post treatment evaluation, the hard and soft tissues were clinically and radiographically within normal limits.

    20. Partial Enucleation of the Nasopalatine Canal for Implant Placement: A Novel Procedure

    One of the anatomical obstacles for dental implants placement in the upper anterior region of the oral cavity is the incisive canal or the nasopalatine canal. Presence of the incisive canal jeopardizes the ideal position of the implants placement. As a result, enucleation of the canal content and placement of bone graft or substitute are necessary to improve the bone bed. In order to prevent any change in sensation (even a temporarily one) and having bone augmentation at the same time, partial removal of the canal’s contents and placement of allograft bone is presented in this case report.

    26. Clinical and Radiographic Evaluation of Short Dental Implants in Posterior Atrophic Ridges with a Follow-up Period of 1 Year after Loading: A Controlled Clinical Trial

    Objective: to evaluate clinically and radiographically the performance of short dental implants in the posterior atrophic ridges (maxilla and mandible) with deficient vertical bone height as an alternative treatment modality to other more invasive procedures. Conclusion: Short dental implants seem to be an effective alternative treatment for atrophic ridges with a very high success rate in the mandible. They minimize the need for bone grafting procedures and increase the patients` acceptance, as well as, maximizing dental implant placement possibilities.

    36. A New Standard Classification System for Dental Implant Drills and Role of Implant Drills in Successful Osseointegration

    Implant drill use is common and clinicians are acutely aware of the implant drills for the system which they are using. It is the demand of the time that we should formulate a classification system to categorize these drills for ease to remember and identification. Attempts have been made through this article to shed some light on various types of implant drills along with a simplified system of their classification. Another aspect included in this article is various factors influencing the drilling process and causing overheating in osteotomy site.
