A 70-year-old female patient visited our clinic owing to a fractured maxillary first molar. Tooth #24 had previously had a large composite restoration that was no longer in place at the time of the dental appointment.

A 75-year-old female patient visited our dental clinic reporting a loose crown on tooth #26. The tooth had been endodontically treated in the past and had a carbon-fibre post. The tooth had been prosthetically restored and presented severe caries without early apical destruction or alteration. The patient had previously had a gold crown on the tooth.

Rehabilitating both jaws of a patient with a poor oral situation is already a challenge in itself. But we wanted to go even further by trying immediate loading using Straumann BLX implants, which are excellent for this kind of work because of their macro-geometry.

The digitalisation of the workflow in dentistry has gained ground in recent years owing to the technical advances in regards to intraoral scanning and software programmes. Here, Drs Miguel Stanley, Ana Gomes Paz, Inês Miguel, and Christian Coachman outline a correction of a patient's vertical dimension of occlusion (VDO) that was conducted using a completely digital workflow.

Thanks to the very high accuracy of modern intra-oral scanners, excellent design software and reliable production systems, restoring an implant with a chairside model is now a reliable treatment with numerous advantages for the patient. The same-day solution with final materials produces excellent implant crowns in a chairside environment.

This study explores how heat treatment less significantly influences (increasing or decreasing) torsional resistance when compared to the high increase in flexibility and fatigue resistance reported in many published articles. Moreover, torsional fracture occurs extremely rapidly when an instrument’s tip becomes blocked.

In cases of severe posterior bone atrophy, Straumann Pro Arch is a solution that helps achieve fixed restoration for the patient. Straumann Guided Surgery and the coDiagnostiX planning software (Dental Wings) can produce predictable results in cases of complex bone anatomy or when implants are placed such to obtain planned multi-unit angulation. With CARES Visual (Straumann), we can obtain a precise framework fit on the original components, which is fundamental for the final restoration.

In recent years, the technology associated with endodontic therapy has undergone a veritable revolution. For years, intraoral radiographs were used as the basis for diagnosis and for planning root canal therapy, despite the fact that these images did not provide a faithful reproduction of the endodontic anatomy. This created a series of technical problems, which, although they could be partly overcome by the operator’s personal experience, to some extent remained unresolved, especially in the field of diagnosis.
