1/5. Short and sticky options in the treatment of the partially dentate patient.

    As we move into the twenty-first century, patterns of dental disease in adults are changing. Surveys of adult dental health indicate that more people are keeping their teeth for longer in life. In many cases, the ravages of dental disease and the cumulative effect of a lifetime of restorative dentistry lead to gradual tooth loss. For many of these patients, restoration of a complete dentition may not be feasible nor desirable. In recent years, functionally oriented treatment planning has become acceptable in light of recent research findings. Using this approach, treatment efforts and resources are directed principally at retaining the 'strategic' part of the dentition in the long term, ie, the anterior and premolar teeth. This paper describes, with the aid of treated cases, a means of combining a shortened dental arch strategy with resin bonded bridgework. With the aid of recent research in this area of clinical practice, some suggestions as to the use of the technique are also described.

2/5. Treatment planning to retain hopeless teeth as support for transitional appliances: three case reports.

    Treatment in endosteal implant dentistry follows an orderly sequence. Determining a patient's need and desire, removal of hopeless teeth, bone augmentation (if necessary), implant placement, implant uncovery, and prosthetic restoration are considered in order. Three case reports that alter traditional treatment planning sequence are presented. Possible potential benefits and disadvantages to practitioners and patients are discussed.

3/5. Oligodontia. Surgical treatment and implant rehabilitation. A case report.

    Oligodontia is the partial loss of deciduous and permanent teeth and is rather commonly associated with a wide range of malformations in many syndromes. The treatment plan for these patients is based on a multidisciplinary approach involving maxillo-facial surgery and several branches of dentistry. The case of a young man who was diagnosed with oligodontia at the age of 11 is reported. The patient was treated with Le Fort 1 maxillary osteotomy, sagittal palatal osteotomy, mandibular widening by autogenous bone grafting, endosseus titanium implant placement and dental rehabilitation by fixed bridges.

4/5. Thielemann's diagonal law of occlusion revisited.

    Thielemann's studies of malocclusal relationships and the frequently observed chain reactions created in distant localities led to the formulation of a philosophical approach to occlusion that is also of practical premeditative clinical relevance for the practitioner. Dr. Thielemann presumed to name it a law, and repeated clinical observations apparently support and reinforce his claim. All disciplines of dentistry inevitably encounter and need to know about this aspect of fission-reactive involvement with the common and seemingly innocuous malocclusions. By incorporating the law into the diagnostic, planning, corrective, and therapeutic stages of treatment, the clinician can readily categorize patients for needs assessments and future goals in treatment.

5/5. Removable partial overdentures for special patients.

    Removable partial overdentures are an option that should be considered by every dentist who is involved with cosmetic dentistry or dentistry for the older adult. The rationale, indications, and technique have been described for providing an aesthetic, functional prosthesis that is also conservative in nature. The reversibility of the procedure allows the patient the opportunity to pursue other forms of treatment should the result not meet his or her expectations. For appropriately selected special patients, the results can be extremely gratifying for both the patient and dentist.
