Esthetic demands, functional needs, treatment sequencing, timeliness and affordability are some primary concerns that must be addressed in such a scenario. A patient would generally want a cosmetic and functional prosthetic replacement at the earliest. Providing the most appropriate interim prosthesis for a given patient is challenging. In this case series we describe a clinical technique being an immediate provisional option utilizing a resin bonded, wire retained natural tooth as a pontic to restore the edentulous space until the final restoration. Using the patient’s own natural tooth offers the benefit of retaining original anatomy, being economical and fulfills functional and psychological requirements of the patient to an extent. It was seen that the natural tooth pontic served as a satisfactory interim restoration. The same natural tooth pontic can be used as a provisional prosthesis during two stage implant procedure as well.</p> Nikhila Chandramohan, A.

Consequently, knowledge of how to adequately treat these cases with conventional means is of major importance. Case report of an 83 year old female patient with visual and tactile impairments requesting prosthetic rehabilitation of complete edentulousness. Complete removable dentures were constructed utilizing techniques such as the neutral zone and the “all-green” impression being incorporated in a workflow that maintains the same number of clinical appointments with conventional procedures.</p> <p><strong>Discussion:</strong> Application of the neutral zone technique might present a challenge for both the clinician and the dental technician. However, it offers numerous advantages regarding stability, aesthetics, phonetics, comfort, masticatory ability, function and oral health related quality of life.</p> <p><strong>Conclusion:</strong> Special techniques associated to traditional prosthodontics may increase treatment efficiency of difficult cases where implant rehabilitation is excluded for various reasons.</p> Dimokritos Papalexopoulos, Nikitas Sykaras, Nick Polychronakis ##submission.copyrightStatement## Tue, 14 Sep 2021 00:00:00 +0000 A Case Report of Post-extraction Central Cemento-Ossifying Fibroma <p>Rare fibro-osseous lesions that affect the jaw bones and are included in the group of mesodermal odontogenic tumors, Cemento-Ossifying fibromas are usually reported in the middle age with a female predominance unlike that reported in this case. Mostly occurring in the mandible and presents as a painless swelling. A traumatic event may act pre disposing factor or a trigger for development and progression of such lesions of jaw. Considering similar event, exodontia, one of the routine minor surgical procedure performed in a dental setup, might pose as a either pre disposing factor or a trigger. The present article intends to establish the connection between occurrence of such an unlikely case of Central Ossifying fibroma of the mandible hypothesized to have been triggered post extraction.</p> Syeda Shadab Farha, Sonia Kaur Sodhi, Firdous Shaikh, Huma Md Saleem, Nida Shaikh ##submission.copyrightStatement## Tue, 21 Sep 2021 00:00:00 +0000
