A healthy and adequate band of keratinized periimplant mucosa is key to long-term biologic and esthetic success. Yet in about one-third of implant patients, its formation requires connective tissue graft procedures. Such procedures may be considered impractical for patients who need retreatment of failures, those who are not willing to go through multiple surgical steps, or those receiving multiple implants that would thus involve multiple connective tissue grafts. This article introduces the buccal pedicle fl ap technique, a new surgical approach for boosting the soft tissue around dental implants without connective tissue grafting...

Obstructive sleep apnea is a medical syndrome with multifactorial pathophysiology. Surgery can be the primary treatment option when anatomic factors are identified with narrowing at specific or general levels of pharyngeal airway. The surgeries are directed to the etiologic anatomic structure to achieve greatest effectiveness. Body weight, Mallampati scale, and tonsil grade are key evaluations to select effective surgical procedures. Surgical weight reduction, maxillomandibular advancement, and pharyngeal soft tissue surgeries are considered for the patient with obesity, maxillomandibular retrognathism, and tonsillar hypertrophy, respectively...

Implant placement is a challenge in the anterior maxilla if the available bone is reduced and esthetics is challenging. The ideal implant position should be considered in all three dimensions: mesiodistal, apicocoronal, and orofacial. This article includes a review and a case report for the anatomical and clinical perspective of implant placement in nasopalatine foramen (near incisal canal). In this case report, the edentulous space is mutilated in between the area #12 and #21 teeth. Therefore, only one, 3...

Dental esthetics need to be defined from the scientific perspective in order to obtain predictable treatment outcomes and avoid the effects of subjectivisms on the part of the dental profesional. It can be deduced that the ideal dimensions in the maxillary anterior sector are difficult to establish. Therefore, the primary purpose of this study was to define the dimensions of the maxillary anterior teeth and the relationships between them. In addition, an analysis was made to reinvestigate whether they complied with the Golden proportion, the RED (Recurrent Esthetic Dental) proportion and the Golden percentage...

Orthodontic treatment has been transformed by the introduction and overwhelming adoption of clear aligner therapy (CAT). Many patients are demanding esthetic and metal-free treatment alternatives, including those requiring orthognathic surgery (OGS), to correct their dentofacial deformities. The adoption of performing OGS for CAT has been cautious and challenging for many reasons. Intermaxillary fixation, postoperative occlusal control, preoperative decompensation management, and long-term stability need to be tested and assessed...

BACKGROUND: There have been many reports about venous flaps, which are often used for the reconstruction of soft tissue defects after finger injury because such flaps are simple to elevate. Recently, high viability rates and nearly normal histological findings were reported for venous flaps, although the mechanism of flap survival remains unclear. This study investigated the esthetic outcomes after the reconstruction of volar finger defects with free medialis pedis venous flaps, which are venous flaps that elevated between the submalleolar and medial plantar regions...
