    6. Dental Rehabilitation of a Patient with Neurofibromatosis Type 1

    Neurofibromatosis not only manifests in several physical issue but may also affect the oral cavity. Rehabilitation of the dentition will likely involve several dental specialty disciplines in coordination with medical colleagues. This case report demonstrates the coordination of treatment of a neurofibromatosis type I (NF1) patient to correct her dental issues along with efforts to improve her facial deformity.

    14. Prosthetic Implant Management of Extraction Site Following Removal of Anterior Tooth

    The Extraction Defect Sounding (EDS) classification has importance in helping the clinician in establishing an appropriate plan for surgical implant treatment. This classification sometimes comes up short and no detailed recommendation of the provisional stage is described before and after surgical treatment in 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.

    28. A Novel Technique to Optimize Screw-Retained Implant Restorations

    This paper discusses the challenges of fabricating screw-retained implant supported restorations in clinical situations. Due to either non-ideal anatomy, or inadequate surgical alignment, screw holes for restorative retention often emerge out of restorations in poor position. As clinicians are faced with mounting evidence of peri-implantitis associated with cement restorations, screw-retained restorations are becoming more prevalent in clinical situations. There is an increasing need for technologies to assist in optimizing restorations where implant placement is non-ideal. The new angulated screw channel technology has provided a workable solution to satisfy the clinical requirements for excellence while employing screw-retained restorations.
