Kuraray Noritake Dental’s KATANA Zirconia ML was the first zirconia on the dental market with integrated shade gradation. First presented at the International Dental Show in 2013, this material has revolutionised the world of zirconia. Over the course of time, KATANA Zirconia UTML and STML and the change from ML to HTML have created a complete product portfolio. This article highlights the different characteristics of each of these varieties.

A female patient came to Studio Cortellini in Riccione in Italy in order to improve not just her ability to chew but also the overall aesthetic appearance of her teeth. A clinical examination revealed the presence of several erosive lesions that contributed to her chewing problems and had caused a decrease in enamel thickness. This reduction in enamel, combined with a number of discoloured composite restorations, negatively affected the aesthetics of her smile.

In addition to the primary wishes of the patient regarding prosthetic treatment, namely safety, comfort and aesthetics, are the need for an efficient treatment process, high cost-effectiveness and a minimal number of therapy sessions. Owing to the possibilities offered by CAD/CAM, these desires can in many cases be fulfilled.

Computer-aided implantology (CAI) was introduced more than 25 years ago with the aim of facilitating implant planning and avoiding intra-operative complications such as mandibular nerve damage, sinus perforation, fenestration and dehiscence. Based on a computed tomography (CT) scan and a digitised tooth set-up, the prosthetically ideal implant positions can be planned virtually with the help of guided surgery software, allowing for 3D visualisation prior to implant surgery.

This was a challenging case with the combined issues of a failed root canal therapy and an iatrogenic perforation of the floor of the pulp chamber. Though initially the prognosis could not be evaluated effectively simply because of non-availability of peer-reviewed literature of similar cases for citation, but the case was taken on owing to the patient’s desire to salvage the natural tooth. The importance of magnification and the ergonomic use of the dental operating microscope cannot be more clearly demonstrated than in this case.

Maxillary second molars are always a challenge for root canal therapy. This difficulty is related to the location of the tooth, way back in the maxilla with limited access, and the variety of anatomical situations. In this article, we will focus on some of those anatomical variations and how to handle them.
