    19. Case of the Month Multidisciplinary Restoration of an Aging Smile

    Background: Increasingly, more mature patients are seeking ways to enhance their appearance. Worn and discolored dentitions make patients appear less youthful. Years of harmful choices such as coffee, tea and red wine and smoking can have cumulatively detrimental, esthetic affects on one’s teeth. This case report demonstrates the use of a multidisciplinary approach using restorative dentistry and adjunctive endodontic, periodontal therapies to reverse the appearance of an aging smile.

    29. Predictable Maxillary Guided Bone Regeneration with a Bioabsorbable Membrane and Particulate Allograft: A Case Series Spanning Extraction to Final Prosthetics

    Background: Guided bone regeneration (GBR) is an increasingly reliable method of addressing particular types of ridge resorption prior to and after implant insertion. Use of more convenient and body-promotive materials including bioabsorbable barriers, particulate grafts and bioactive molecules (i.e., growth factors) curtail surgical pressure as well as patient com- fort. Spacemaking and small to moderate nonspacemaking defects benefit from treatment with GBR, the sequence details and results of which are documented in this case series.

    47. Oral Precancer and Early Cancer Detection in the Dental Office – Review of New Technologies

    Background: New technologies have provided an exciting new array of clinical diagnostic tools for localizing or emphasizing abnormal mucosa in the dental office, especially leukoplakia and dysplasia. Some of these technologies claim to identify atypical cells prior to biopsy, even before there are clinically visible mucosal changes, hence, can allow a more confident assessment of risk and localization of the most “suspicious” area to biopsy. In essence, molecular-level detection of dysplastic oral mucosal change appears to be moving into the practitioner’s office.
