    6. The MIMS Technique – A Case Report: A First Look at a New Method for Optimizing Esthetic Gingival Grafting

    Suturing in the esthetic zone can be unsightly and difficult for patients post-operatively. Moreover, when clinically presented with a very thin tissue biotype needing soft tissue grafting to repair a mucogingival defect, approaches may be far and wide. Therefore, this article shows a new method of suturing that was created to address both lack of tissue resiliencyand esthetics when working the smile zone. When presented with thin tissue biotypes and/or mucogingival defects in the esthetic zone, utilizing the Modified Internal Mattress Sling technique can greatly aid in securing and concealing soft tissue grafting for patients.

    12. Socket Preservation Using a Small Particulate Xenograft: A Case Report

    Soon after tooth extraction a cascade of bone remodeling starts which result in bone resorption. Procedures such Socket Seal Surgery can be employed to preserve future implant site. There are various grafts which can used for the same purpose. The best method to observe a graft’s healing is surgical re-entry and or histopathology. The aim of this Case Report is to document the use of Smartbone ® xenograft for socket preservation. After 5 months of healing, histopathological core sampling revealed good osteoconduction of the graft.

    18. Crestal Bone Loss: A Comparative Study Among Men And Women In One Stage Dental Implants

    Dental implantology is the state of the art technique to replace missing teeth. Crestal bone loss along implant surface jeopardizes its longevity and success of treatment. The present study was performed to evaluate and compare the crestal bone loss along the implant surface between men and women six months after the implant placement. Six months after the implant placement, radiographic evaluation on digital IOPA showed a mean crestal bone loss of 0.66 mm on the mesial side of implant and 0.46 mm on distal side of implant. Gender had significant difference in bone loss

    30. Maxillary Split-Crest Technique with Immediate Implant Placement in a 13-year old Patient with Two Years Follow up: A Case Report

    This case report presented a divergent approach in which a modified split-crest technique using the piezoelectric tip, one drill and tapered implants was applied. The split-crest surgery was performed with immediate placement of two tapered self-tapping dental implants in the anterior maxilla of a young 13-year old female patient. The patient lost four of her maxillary anterior teeth as a result of an accident at the age of 9 years with subsequent severe alveolar ridge resorption.
