files allowed for rapid preparation of a glide path while minimizing hand fatigue. The preparation of a glide path reduces change to the natural curvature of the canal with subsequent mechanical shaping of the canal by reciprocation (Bertutti, et al., 2012). The GuttaCore carrier based obturation technique allows for the movement of warm gutta percha three-dimensionally into all areas of the properly shaped root canal system (Gutmann, 2011). A meticulous assessment of multiple angled radiographs, the use of magnification, illumination, adequate access cavity preparation, and the awareness of possible anatomic variations can aid the clinician in the treatment of multi-rooted maxillary second premolars.

Dr. Robert C. Vogel illustrates how a patient with limited buccal bone and interradicular space benefitted from a narrow diameter implant

I

ncorporating the latest developments in implant dentistry into practice may result in increased security and less aggressive surgical techniques with long-term stability and excellent esthetics. The case below illustrates the use of a Straumann® Roxolid® narrow diameter implant with improved strength* and osseointegration with prosthetic flexibility through the use of a CAD/CAM zirconia abutment. Limited buccal bone and interradicular space necessitated the use of a narrow diameter implant such as the Straumann Bone Level Ø3.3mm Roxolid Implant. The biologic advantage of a platform shift allows for maintenance of crestal bone levels and maintenance of the soft tissue. The strength of this implant (titanium alloyed with zirconium) allows for increased thickness of the abutment at the level of connection resulting in the ability to use a CAD/CAM all zirconia abutment not previously feasible with other small diameter implants. The use of a zirconia abutment in the case presented here addresses the high esthetic demands of a patient with a high smile line, thin tissue type, and high scalloped architecture. Combining the

PRODUCT PROFILE

i-CAT® FLX — the latest advancement in Cone Beam 3D For greater flexibility in scanning, planning, and treatment i-CAT award-winning cone beam 3D dental imaging has already gained a wide reputation for image quality, patient safety, and smooth workflow. In the field of implantology, 3D scanning helps to increase surgical predictability and facilitate precise implant placement. i-CAT scans show true anatomy in full 3D volume and high-resolution individual slices for accurate measurement of bone thickness and alveolar nerve location. With the precise data gathered from viewing an i-CAT scan and utilizing proprietary software tools, clinicians can map an entire course of treatment from surgical placement of the implant and abutment, all the way to final restoration. Practitioners can obtain a more thorough analysis of bone structure and tooth orientation, and as a result, treat patients with greater confidence. Developed on the foundation of i-CAT excellence, the new i-CAT FLX cone beam 3D system offers a range of innovative features for greater clarity, easeof-use, and control. Practitioners can take advantage of these dynamic tools: • Visual iQuity™ advanced image technology delivers i-CAT’s clearest 3D and 2D images • Full dentition 3D imaging at a dose lower than a 2D Panoramic X-ray with QuickScan+* • Ergonomic Stability System (ESS) offers seated positioning, robust head stability, and adjustable seating controls to minimize patient movement and reduce the need for retakes. The unit is also wheelchair accessible • i-Collimator electronically adjusts the field-of-view to limit radiation only to the area of scanning interest. • The i-CAT FLX offers a lower radiation dose than a panoramic X-ray • i-PAN™ produces traditional 2D panoramic images SmartScan STUDIO also works toward more clinical control by providing an easy, customizable solution for a more guided, controlled workflow in the dental practice. With its easy-to-use, touchscreen interface, and integrated acquisition system, SmartScan STUDIO offers step48 Implant practice

by-step guidance, allowing the clinician to select the appropriate scan for each patient at the lowest acceptable radiation dose. In addition to all of the clinical advantages, the small footprint of the i-CAT FLX also allows it to fit easily and seamlessly into any practice. Of course, the i-CAT FLX also includes Tx STUDIO™ technology that is an integral part of all i-CAT cone beam 3D systems, which are known for their clinical and dose control, as well as the fastest workflow. Tx STUDIO leverages the best in anatomy imaging software and cone beam 3D technology that benefits a gamut of specialties, from diagnostics to implant and orthodontic treatment planning. Using the software in conjunction with scans, practitioners can virtually place single or multiple implants from an extensive implant library that takes the guesswork out of planning, and also conveniently order surgical guides from all leading surgical guide providers through the Tx STUDIO software. These software tools facilitate communication with other clinicians, and help dentists educate patients about their dental conditions, improving the possibility of case acceptance.

i-CAT continues to revolutionize 3D dental and maxillofacial radiography, with the launch of the new i-CAT FLX. IP About Imaging Sciences International Since 1992, Imaging Sciences International has been an innovator in advanced dental imaging, specifically with i-CAT cone beam technology. i-CAT solutions have been installed in more than 3,000 sites around the world. Imaging Sciences offers highly specialized service and support through the i-CAT Network and continuing education through the 3D Imaging Institute, the only entity of its kind dedicated to helping dentists and specialists use the latest in cone beam technology. * Data on file.

Objective: The purpose of this pilot study was to evaluate a new regimen of Phase I care applied to potential maxillary canine impactions. Materials and Methods: The data were drawn from the Williamsport Orthodontic Study, which is part of the University of Pennsylvania, School of Dental Medicine, Orthodontic Department’s practice-based research network (PBRN). Ten cases were evaluated (20 canine impactions), all of which underwent a new regimen of “Phase I only” care. All patients were diagnosed as maxillary deficient based on Harmony criteria and also based on the center of alveolar crest (CAC) measurement technique, both of which were previously reported. Results: A new regimen of Phase I care may be helpful for potential canine impactions. Conclusions: Early Phase I diagnosis and RPE correction of maxillary transverse deficiency, by way of Harmony criteria and the CAC measurement technique, may be helpful for potential maxillary canine impactions. More study is recommended with control and treatment groups matched for maxillary deficiency determined by Harmony criteria and measured by the CAC technique.

measurement.1-8 However, even with early detection, prevention of impacted canines has been uncertain. The extraction of primary canines has been recommended.7, 9-11 However, extraction has not been a significant advantage over no extraction.12 The supplemental use of space gaining cervical pull headgear has been shown to be more effective than primary canine extraction alone.12 Maxillary expansion for space gaining for prevention may not be warranted if the maxilla is deemed sufficient by some criteria. It should be fair to say that the particular criteria used to diagnose a deficient maxilla will determine whether or not a maxillary deficiency is deemed to exist. Accordingly, there can easily be disagreement regarding the need for

maxillary transverse treatment.13-17 The purpose of this pilot study was to evaluate a new regimen of Phase I care applied to potential maxillary canine impactions. This manuscript suggests a new method of diagnosis of a transverse deficient maxilla. Specific treatment is then directed in a new regimen of Phase I care to normalize the maxilla and gain intra-arch Harmony.

An example demonstrating the detection of a subtle rotation in patient K.S. is shown in Figure 9. ii.

The VDM to VTM registration finds great use in understanding how well the reactive segments have been managed (Figure 11B).

Hector’s story Dr. Mark Reynolds tells about the many people involved in bringing this novel case to its happy conclusion

T

he first time I heard anything about Hector was from my dentist who knew both his family and him. She had referred them to our chapter of Smile for a Lifetime and suggested that he apply. When his application arrived, I was somewhat prepared, but shocked to see both the complexity of his case and his passion and heart. Hector has agenesis, the absence of permanent teeth, and is missing 10 teeth. When a primary tooth would fall out, there was nothing to replace it. This left him with many gaps, oddly shaped teeth, and holes where teeth were absent. And while he was definitely self-conscious about his smile, he didn’t act like a victim or have any less passion for life. “When the dentist told my mom the first time that I had agenesis, it was in my presence. I felt so sad that I cried all the way back home. I was 7 years old and did not understand why that was happening to me. I prayed for months asking God to let my teeth grow,” said Hector on his application. Although Hector definitely had significant need, our board initially declined his application due to the complexity of his case. We knew we could put braces on him, but he needed so much more to make his smile. We used the next quarter to investigate resources and to determine what we could provide to him beyond the braces. After meeting Hector face to face, we learned that he is missing 14 of his permanent teeth, and several of the teeth that he does have are either small or misshapen. Our initial treatment plan was to close the gaps in his upper arch mesially, to the extent possible with his undersized teeth, and replace his missing premolars with four implants. His mandibular arch required not only the replacement of his premolars but also his central incisors. I met with Dr. Luis Benitez, a local periodontist. He was excited about the case. He mentioned to me that he had wanted to get involved in some pro bono work but found it difficult to identify where he could use his specialized skills. Hector provided him with a need within his 52 Orthodontic practice

specialty as well as a significant challenge. Amazingly, Dr. Benitez worked with Astra Tech, and they graciously agreed to provide all 10 of the implants that Hector will need once we are able to position his existing teeth properly. In addition, Dr. Ed Martinez, a prosthodontist, and the lab that he works with, have volunteered their services to restore the implants as teeth once a proper time for healing has passed. By the time Hector is finished, he will have received more than $50,000 in dental care, but I am confident his smile will look like a million bucks! “Now I am grown,” says Hector, “but I still believe in miracles. I believe that people like you are used by God to make those miracles, and make this possible with people like me. Currently, I am in a relationship, and I would like to be and feel more comfortable and confident with myself.” It has been amazing to see Hector’s smile change, but more significant is the change I have seen in him. When he first came to my office, his mother brought many pictures of him throughout his childhood. What started as a happy, smiling boy quickly turned into a child who smiled without showing his teeth, and the twinkle in his eye slowly disappeared as he grew older. Even with only the initial alignment of his teeth, that twinkle has returned. Hector has graduated from high school and is in the dental assisting program at our local community college. He plans to continue to hygiene school and possibly pursue dental school. He married a wonderful girl and has many, many reasons to show off the smile that is constantly improving. Smile for a Lifetime offers a wonderful structure to provide care to those in our community who really need it but are without the resources to make things happen on their own. Cases like Hector’s have also provided a way to work with other dental professionals for the good of a common patient. By the time we reach the end of Hector’s treatment, at least six dental professionals will have worked together on this case. We have truly

banded together, and the results are visibly life-changing.

Dr. Luis M. Benitez, periodontist, tells his chapter of Hector’s story Partial anodontia or oligodontia is a condition characterized by the partial absence of certain permanent teeth, which could include one or both of the jaw bones. As a consequence of having undeveloped teeth, these patients frequently suffer from malpositioned teeth and underdeveloped bone where the tooth is supposed to erupt. The latter is mainly due to the lack of “bone stimulus” during the tooth bud development. Since this condition is frequently diagnosed during childhood, it becomes imminent to involve several dental specialists who will focus not only on tooth alignment, but also in the adequate tooth replacement. Following orthodontic treatment, the missing teeth need to be replaced in order to maintain the arch integrity and a balanced bite during adulthood. As a periodontist, my involvement requires the reassessment of the bone of the empty spaces to determine what kind of treatment best suits the patient’s condition to replace his teeth. I have evaluated Hector, and he will require some bone regeneration to accept dental dental implants, which are considered the gold standard in these cases. I will donate the regenerative materials and the time involved to deliver the implants that were donated by Astra Tech. Once the implants heal, Dr. Ed Martinez will be the one in charge of restoring the implants with crowns as the final restoration. OP
