1/15. Supraoccluding cobalt-chrome onlays in the management of amelogenesis imperfecta in children: a 2-year case report.

    Children suffering from the inherited dental anomaly amelogenesis imperfecta frequently present with sensitive, discolored teeth and decreased lower facial height. The aim of treatment is to reduce sensitivity while maintaining the maximum amount of hard tissue possible until the patient reaches an age at which advanced restorative techniques can be used to rehabilitate the dentition. A case is presented in which amelogenesis imperfecta in the mixed dentition was managed by the placement of adhesive cast restorations. These restorations have been in place for 2 years.

2/15. Desensitization of exposed root surfaces using a semilunar coronally positioned flap.

    A definitive treatment is described for cervical dentinal sensitivity, featuring a semilunar coronally positioned flap to cover the denuded root surface. Many patients who complain of having sensitive teeth from exposed dentin secondary to gingival recession can be easily and conservatively treated with a semilunar flap procedure.

3/15. Restoring function and esthetics in a patient with amelogenesis imperfecta: a case report.

    amelogenesis imperfecta is a hereditary disorder that affects enamel on primary and permanent teeth. It is a rare dental disease but represents a major restorative challenge for the dentist. A 14-year-old boy presented with sensitive, discolored, and mutilated teeth and a decreased vertical dimension of occlusion. The aim of treatment was to reduce dental sensitivity, to restore esthetics, and to correct the vertical dimension of occlusion. To modify the occlusion, and to protect the dentin from chemical and thermal attacks, nickel-chrome onlays were placed on the molars. To improve the esthetics of the incisors and premolars, resin composite restorations were applied. The patient was regularly recalled during the postoperative period. Radiographic and clinical examinations 10 months posttreatment revealed no evidence of disorders associated with the restored teeth or their supporting structures.

4/15. Diagnosis and dental treatment of a young adult patient with gastroesophageal reflux: a case report with 2-year follow-up.

    A young adult who complained of extreme dentin sensitivity to tactile and thermal stimuli exhibited severe, generalized tooth erosion and an associated parafunctional habit. The diagnosis of the underlying general disease and treatment of its dental sequelae are presented, together with a 2-year follow up. patients who are suspected of having gastroesophageal reflux should be referred to a gastroenterologist or other health professionals to ensure early diagnosis and treatment of the underlying disorder, thus minimizing the destruction of the patient's dentition and improving the patient's general health. Dental treatment should be adjusted to fit the characteristics of each case.

5/15. Gingival prostheses--a review.

    Gingival replacement is often a component of comprehensive prosthodontics. Gingival prostheses may be fixed or removable and may be made from acrylics, composite resins, silicones or porcelain-based materials. Undercuts or dental attachments are used to secure removable prostheses, which are esthetically pleasing and easy to maintain. This paper describes several clinical situations in which gingival prostheses were used effectively.

6/15. Gingival recessions caused by lip piercing: case report.

    fear of losing the teeth is common among patients presenting with gingival recession. This report describes a case in which unusual gingival recessions were caused by lip piercing. Periodontal treatment involved removal of the causative agent, hygiene instruction, scaling and root planing, and coverage of the root with a subepithelial connective tissue graft. The therapeutic measures applied in this case yielded satisfactory root coverage, an increase in the width of the keratinized gingiva, improvement in hygiene status and absence of dental hypersensitivity.

7/15. Full-mouth rehabilitation of a patient with bulimia nervosa. A case report.

    anorexia and bulimia nervosa are eating disorders seen mainly in adolescents or young patients. The dentist should be in the position to recognize early signs of the disorder and alert the patient (and the patient's parents, if necessary) of the possible physical, psychologi cal, and dental consequences. Such dental treatment may help motivate the patient to confront the problem. In this paper the full-mouth rehabilitation, using a combination of galvano- and metal-ceramic restorations, of a young patient suffering from bulimia nervosa is described.

8/15. Management of gingival recession by the use of an acellular dermal graft material: a 12-case series.

    BACKGROUND: Different soft tissue defects can be treated by a variety of surgical procedures. Most of these techniques require the palatal area as a donor site. Recently, an acellular dermal graft has become available that can substitute for palatal donor tissue. methods: This study describes the surgical technique for gingival augmentation and root coverage and the results of 12 clinical cases. A comparison between the three most popular mucogingival procedures for root coverage is also presented. RESULTS: The results of the 12 patients and the 26 denuded surfaces have shown that we can obtain a mean root coverage of 74% with the acellular dermal graft. Thirteen out of the 26 denuded surfaces had complete root coverage. The average increase in keratinized tissue was 1.19 mm. It seems that the long-term results of the cases are stable. CONCLUSION: The proposed technique of root coverage with an acellular dermal graft can be a good alternative to soft tissue grafts for root coverage, and it should be part of our periodontal plastic surgery armamentarium.

9/15. Coronally positioned flap with subepithelial connective tissue graft for root coverage: various indications and flap designs.

    Aesthetic concerns and functional abnormalities, such as dentin hypersensitivity, are often associated with gingival recession defects. Root coverage procedures aim to restore both gingival aesthetics and function in recession defects. The coronally positioned flap combined with the subepithelial connective tissue graft is one of the most widely used root coverage procedures. The present report illustrates four different indications where this procedure has been successfully employed. An isolated Miller class II recession defect associated with frenum pull, multiple adjacent Miller class I defects in the aesthetic zone, an isolated Miller class I defect associated with dentin hypersensitivity, and an isolated Miller class II defect on a retained deciduous tooth are the four diverse conditions treated by periodontal plastic surgery. Different approaches were used to create the coronally positioned flap. Treatment resulted in complete root coverage, resolution of hypersensitivity, and satisfaction of the patients' aesthetic concerns. An effective and predictable treatment modality, such as the coronally positioned flap combined with the subepithelial connective tissue graft, should be considered when treatment planning for gingival recession defects.

10/15. An uncommon dental presentation during pregnancy resulting from multiple eating disorders: pica and bulimia: case report.

    pica is a compulsive eating disorder involving non-nutritive substances. The etiology of this eating disorder is unknown but it often is associated with subclinical mineral deficiencies. This article focuses on the simultaneous occurrence of two types of eating disorders, the co-existence of depression during four pregnancies, and the resulting dental clinical implications. The literature is substantial enough to support a possible etiological association between these eating disorders and depression during pregnancy. Associations between eating psychopathology, depression, and anxiety have been described consistently. The diagnosis of pica and the dental treatment related to it are not a common part of most dental practices; knowing the clinical features and detecting the condition depend on careful questioning and diligence. At present, no one has described the physiologic or psychological basis for pica. This article reviews the published literature pertaining to pica, specifically pagophagia.
