        Classic Article

        Vertical dimension measurements
        Irving M. Sheppard, DMD, and Stephen M. Sheppard, DMD, New York, NY
        Immediate placement and immediate provisional abutment modeling in anterior single-tooth implant restorations using a CAD/CAM application: A clinical report
        Nikolaos Tselios, DDS, MS, Stephen M. Parel, DDS, MS, and John D. Jones, DDS, MS, San Antonio and Dallas, Tex
        In this clinical report, the authors describe the use of CAD/CAM technology to enable the definitive restoration of immediately placed and loaded implants, as this technology facilitates fabrication of the definitive abutment as an exact replica of the provisional abutment.
        Management of a patient with hypodontia, using implants and all-ceramic restorations: A clinical report
        Bill Abbo, DDS, and Michael E. Razzoog, DDS, MS, MPH, Ann Arbor, Mich
        This clinical report describes the rationale for and treatment of a patient with hypodontia using implants and all-ceramic restorations.
        Dermal and mucosal reactions to an antimicrobial irreversible hydrocolloid impression material: A clinical report
        Philip S. Baker, DDS, Kevin D. Plummer, DDS, Gregory R. Parr, DDS, MS, and M. Harry Parker, DDS, MS, Augusta, Ga
        This clinical report indicates that use of an irreversible hydrocolloid impression material containing a quaternary ammonium compound may result in a greater incidence of dermal and mucosal irritation.
        A three-dimensional evaluation of a laser scanner and a touch-probe scanner
        Anna Persson, BSc, Matts Andersson, DDS, PhD, Agneta Oden, MSc, PhD, DDS, and Gunilla Sandborgh-Englund, DDS, PhD, Huddinge and Gothenburg, Sweden
        This study attempted to determine the repeatability and relative accuracy of 2 dental surface digitization devices.
        Effect of die spacer thickness on shear bond strength of porcelain laminate veneers
        Seok-Hwan Cho, DDS, Won-Gun Chang, DDS, PhD, Bum-Soon Lim, BS, PhD, and Yong-Keun Lee, DDS, PhD, Seoul, Korea
        This study evaluated the shear bond strength differences between enamel and a feldspathic porcelain laminate veneer as a function of die spacer thickness.
        Improved retention of anterior cantilever resin-bonded prostheses by design alteration: An experimental and finite element study
        Shashwat Bhakta, BDS, MMedSci, Richard van Noort, BSc, DPhil, and George Cardew, MSc, PhD, Sheffield, United Kingdom
        The results of this study involving cantilevered resin-bonded prostheses in the anterior dentition suggest that altering the point of attachment of the connector onto the retainer wing may prevent stress concentrations within the adhesive layer and enhance prostheses retention.
        Effect of surface treatment on retention of glass-fiber endodontic posts
        Ali Balbosh, DMD, and Matthias Kern, DMD, PhD, Kiel, Germany
        This study evaluated the effect of surface treatment on the retention of glass-fiber endodontic posts luted with resin cement and subjected to artificial aging.
        Effect of silica coating and silanization on flexural and composite-resin bond strengths of zirconia posts: An in vitro study
        Anuar Antonio Xible, DDS, MSc, Rudys Rodolfo de Jesus Tavarez, MS, Carlos dos Reis Pereira de Araujo, PhD, and Wellington Cardoso Bonachela, PhD, Sao Paulo, Brazil
        The results of this in vitro study suggest that a tribochemical treatment on the surface of the zirconia-based ceramic posts tested may improve the bond strength with composite resin cores as well as improve the stability of posts and cores without an adverse effect on the flexural strength of the posts.
        Long-term effects of storage and thermal cycling on the marginal adaptation of provisional resin crowns: A pilot study
        David Ehrenberg, DDS, MS, Gabriel I. Weiner, and Saul Weiner, DDS, Newark, NJ
        The results of this in vitro study suggest that provisional crowns made from both bis-acrylic resin composite and polymethyl methacrylate copolymer may exhibit loss of marginal adaptation over a long-term period of service.
        Influence of finish line design on marginal adaptation of electroformed metal-ceramic crowns
        Hisaka Shiratsuchi, DDS, Futoshi Komine, DDS, PhD, Yoshiyuki Kakehashi, DDS, PhD, and Hideo Matsumura, DDS, PhD, Tokyo, Japan
        This study evaluated the influence of 3 different finish line designs on the marginal adaptation of electroformed metal copings and metal-ceramic crowns.
        Over-refractory casting technique as an alternative to one-piece multi-unit fixed partial denture frameworks
        Giovani de Oliveira Correa, DDS, MS, Guilherme Elias Pessanha Henriques, DDS, MS, PhD, Marcelo Ferraz Mesquita, DDS, MS, PhD, and Lourenco Correr Sobrinho, DDS, MS, PhD, Sao Paulo, Brazil
        This study evaluated marginal fit in 1-piece casting FPD frameworks comparing 2 casting techniques.
        Interactions of pigments and opacifiers on color stability of MDX4-4210/type A maxillofacial elastomers subjected to artificial aging
        Sudarat Kiat-amnuay, DDS, MS, Trakol Mekayarajjananonth, DDS, MS, John M. Powers, PhD, Mark S. Chambers, DMD, MS, and James C. Lemon, DDS, Bangkok, Thailand, and Houston, Tex
        This study measured the interactions of oil pigments plus dry earth opacifiers at 5%, 10%, and 15% by volume in stabilizing the color of MDX4-4210/type A silicone elastomers before and after artificial aging.
        A novel technique using a coded healing abutment for the fabrication of a CAD/CAM titanium abutment for an implant-supported restoration
        Yoav Grossmann, DMD, MHA, Marianna Pasciuta, DDS, MS, and Israel M. Finger, DDS, MS, New Orleans, La
        This article describes a technique for using CAD/CAM titanium abutments for an implant-supported restoration using a coded healing abutment to facilitate impression making.
        Occlusion recording device for dental implant-supported restorations
        Yuji Kokubo, DDS, PhD, and Chikahiro Ohkubo, DDS, PhD, Yokohama, Japan
