    6. Vertical Bone Augmentation and Soft Tissue Management on the Anterior Maxilla, Before and After Implant Placement: A Case Report

    Complex bone defects could be challenging and implant placement difficult after a complicated extraction. Treatment planning should include implant placement, bone augmentation and soft tissue grafting in horizontal vertical and transversal relationship. The aim of this study is to evaluate clinically the result of a staged -treatment planning for bone augmentation and soft tissue management before placing the implant and after implantation.

    16. Clinical and Radiographic Evaluation of Short Dental Implants in Posterior Atrophic Ridges with a Follow-up Period of 1 year After Loading: A Controlled Clinical Trial

    To evaluate clinically and radiographically the performance of short dental implants in the posterior atrophic ridges (maxilla and mandible) with deficient vertical bone height as an alternative treatment modality to other more invasive procedures. Short dental implants seem to be an effective alternative treatment for atrophic ridges with a very high success rate in the mandible. They minimize the need for bone grafting procedures and increase the patients` acceptance, as well as, maximizing dental implant placement possibilities.

    26. 2% Lidocaine with Epinephrine Versus 0.75% Ropivacaine for Local Anesthesia

    It is common practice during removal of wisdom teeth to administer local anesthetics to the surgical site.Lidocaine is the most commonly used local anesthetic. Ropivacaine is longer-acting,but it is infrequently used in the dental setting. This study aims to compare post-operative pain and patient preference after extraction of mandibular third molars using 2% lidocaine with 1:100,000 epinephrine or 0.75% ropivacaine.

    36. A Novel Approach to Repair Severe Damage in the Esthetic Zone for Dental Implant Treatment

    The following case reports documents use of platelet rich fibrin (PRF) and titanium mesh for guided bone regeneration (GBR) to facilitate dental implant treatment in the esthetic zone. A 40 year old male patient with a severe hard and soft tissue combination defect in the esthetic zone of the anterior maxilla is treated and photo documentation of the procedure is provided.
