Several ocular and orbital disorders require surgical intervention that may result in ocular defects. Immediate intervention is required to preserve the anophthalmic socket size and prevent scar tissue contractures that may follow surgery. Unfortunately, immediate fitting of an anophthalmic socket with an artificial eye may not always be possible, and a(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate under controlled clinical conditions the outcomes of cast-metal slot-retained resin-bonded fixed dental prostheses (RBFDPs) in which resin composite interlocked the restoration retainers in place after cementation in cases with single missing first molars, and to collect survival data on this esthetic RBFDP design combined with an(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the clinical usefulness of directly fabricated glass and polyethylene resin-bonded fiberreinforced composite (FRC) inlay-retained fixed dental prostheses (FDPs) in posterior single missing teeth over a short period of time. MATERIALS AND METHODS Fourteen inlay-retained FRC FDPs with tub-shaped or box-shaped retainers were directly(More)
Amelogenesis imperfecta (AI) affects enamel on primary and permanent dentition. This hereditary disorder is characterized by loss of enamel, poor esthetics, and hypersensitivity. Functional and cosmetic rehabilitation is challenging with variety of treatment options. This report presents the treatment of an AI patient using conventional fixed dentures and(More)
STATEMENT OF PROBLEM Monolithic zirconia crowns fabricated with computer-aided design and computer-aided manufacturing (CAD-CAM) have recently become a common practice for the restoration of posterior teeth. The marginal fit of monolithic zirconia crowns may be affected by different cement space parameters set in the CAD software. Information is scarce(More)
STATEMENT OF PROBLEM Monolithic zirconia crowns fabricated using computer-aided design and computer-aided manufacturing (CAD-CAM) technology have recently become an alternative dental prosthetic treatment. The marginal fit of monolithic zirconia crown may be affected by different stages of the fabrication procedures in the laboratory and cementation.(More)
PURPOSE The purpose of this study is to report retrospectively the clinical results of cast metal slot-retained resin-bonded fixed dental prostheses (RBFDPs) used in the restoration of single missing second premolar teeth, as this kind of prostheses provides acceptable clinical outcomes in a minimally invasive and esthetic treatment for the average patient(More)
