Hyper-optimized tensor network contraction
This work implements new randomized protocols that find very high quality contraction paths for arbitrary and large tensor networks, and introduces a hyper-optimization approach, where both the method applied and its algorithmic parameters are tuned during the path finding. Expand
Private Practice Results of Dental Implants. Part I: Survival and Evaluation of Risk Factors—Part II: Surgical and Prosthetic Complications
The results of this study indicate that the use of implants in private clinics is a safe and predictable method for the treatment of partially or completely edentulous patients, if the proper clinical protocol is followed. Expand

This study indicated that certain systems can provide stable bonding of resin to metal substructures despite prolonged wet storage and intensive thermocycling and can also be used clinically without retentive configurations on metal frameworks, resulting in better esthetics. Expand
Radiographical evaluation of the gap at the implant-abutment interface.
The detecting ability to diagnose a gap at the implant-abutment interface varied significantly with the angulation degree of the X-ray tube, and the use of a paralleling device is indicated for evaluation of marginal accuracy. Expand
Full-mouth rehabilitation of a patient with bulimia nervosa. A case report.
The full-mouth rehabilitation, using a combination of galvano- and metal-ceramic restorations, of a young patient suffering from bulimia nervosa is described. Expand
The use of dental implants in combination with removable partial dentures: a case report.
A patient with failing dentition received a treatment option where bilateral distal extension removable partial dentures (RPDs) are used in combination with anterior fixed implant prostheses with semi-precision attachments and their benefits were increased comfort, good esthetics in the anterior area, improved phonetics, and masticatory function.

Loosening of the fixing screw in single implant crowns: predisposing factors, prevention and treatment options.
Clinical solutions for the complication of screw-loosening through clinical examples are presented and the factors that may predispose to its occurrence are discussed to overcome this clinical problem. Expand
Transferring the emergence profile from the provisional to the final restoration.
In this technique article, four different methods are presented for transferring the emergence profile: the modification of the impression post by adding composite resin intraorally or extraorally, the fabrication of a working cast mimicking the soft tissue contour, and the use of CAD/CAM technology.

Provisional restorations for optimizing esthetics in anterior maxillary implants: a case report.
UNLABELLED The use of implants for the restoration of anterior missing teeth has been established and documented during the past years. However, the use of dental implants in the anterior region is aExpand
Functional and esthetic rehabilitation in amelogenesis imperfecta with all-ceramic restorations: a case report.
A description of a patient's oral rehabilitation with all-ceramic veneers and crowns after extensive crown lengthening is presented and a microscopic examination was also performed on an extracted third molar under polarized light. Expand
