    6. Preserving the Buccal Plate with a Novel Bone Graft Material for Immediate Implants in the Esthetic Zone

    Implant placement into immediate extraction sockets can present with clinical challenges especially in the esthetic zone. Preservation of the buccal plate is critical to maintaining the position of the gingival tissue so that recession does not compromise esthetics. Position of the implant with respect to the buccal plate is important to allow sufficient thickness of bone, which in the extraction socket will result in a gap between the buccal socket wall and the implant.

    14. The One Functional Position, Implant Level, Indirect, Impression Technique: Description of the Technique and a Case Report

    Several implant impression techniques have been proposed and evaluated involving conventional and digital protocols. The conventional protocols involve two main methods, the direct and the indirect technique, where the latter is widely used for clinical cases involving less than three implants. One of the most significant problems of the implant level, indirect technique relate to the accuracy of three dimensional impression post installation into the impression along with the stability of the impression post into the latter upon pouring of the stone model.

    24. From Single Discolored Tooth to a Full-mouth Reconstruction

    A full mouth reconstruction and rehabilitation is a reality. Predictability and success can be achieved if the golden rules of healthy, functional, dynamic occlusion are tested and implemented in a structured, orderly manner to secure the multiple intricate phases of treatment. How do you address healthy, functional occlusion to a person who doesn’t have any pain, discomfort, or concern? This is one of the greatest challenge that facing dentists who try to achieve and provide optimum dental care for all their patients.

    32. Complications of the Sinus Lift Procedure

    The sinus lift is one of the most common procedures performed to increase the height of posterior maxilla for placement of dental implants. It is a sensitive area which is prone to complications, the most common being sinus membrane tear and bleeding. The most common being sinus membrane tear, placement of implant in deficient bone height and dislodgement of implant in the sinus cavity.
