    15. Case of the Month: Dental Erosion Caused by Aspirin Swishing and GERD:           A Clinical Report on Full Mouth Rehabilitation

    Dental erosion is the progressive loss of tooth structure by chemical processes that do not involve bacterial action producing defects that are sharply defined, wedge-shaped depressions often in the facial and cervical areas. Prevalence, distribution and clinical appearance of dental erosion vary due to regional, environmental and behavioral factors and are estimated to occur in 2-18% of the population. The cause of dental erosion is varied. Relationship of aspirin to dental erosion has been reported. The patient described in this report demonstrated severe erosion of all teeth caused by effect of acid reflux and chronic swish- ing of aspirin powder dissolved in water.

    27. Staged Sinus Floor Elevation Using the Crestal Core Elevation (CCE) Procedure: A Review of the Technique

    In the moderately to severely atrophic maxilla, trephined cores measuring 3 to 6 mm in height and 5 to 6 mm in diameter may be apically displaced to facilitate sinus aug- mentation and staged implant placement. The crestal core elevation (CCE) procedure incorporates specially designed core osteotomes to minimize membrane perforation and the malleting force associated with core intrusion. This report reviews the technique, instrumentation and indications for CCE and presents two clinical cases clearly demonstrating the efficacy of this less invasive alternative to the more commonly used lateral window osteotomy.

    45. Orthodontic Extrusion, Immediate Tooth Replacement, and Removal of Gingival Discolorization: A Case Study

    n implant dentistry, an esthetic result can be achieved successfully through minimally invasive surgery, especially in the anterior region. This concept reduces surgical time, trauma, complications, scarring, and preserves soft tissue architecture. Proper treatment planning is essential and may take advantage of the patient’s regenerative capacity to minimize the invasiveness of the total treatment.
