CDA journal explores sinus floor augmentation

The March 2013 Journal of the California Dental Association focuses on exploring sinus floor augmentation, a double tooth case study, and the treatment of a skeletal class III relationship, the California Dental Association (CDA) announced.

Researchers found the lateral wall sinus floor elevation technique to be a predictable surgical procedure that allows dental practitioners to obtain sufficient bone height and width for the placement of implants. Their findings are described in the article, "Lateral Wall Sinus Floor Elevation for Implant Placement: Revisiting Fundamentals and the Surgical Technique."

Another article, "A New Approach to Correct a Class III Malocclusion With Miniscrews: A Case Report," presents the treatment of a class III patient. The researchers found the use of miniscrews in the mandible for intraoral maxillary traction via a rapid maxillary expansion appliance to be a good method of treatment of maxillary deficiency cases.

And a case report on the aesthetic management of a primary double tooth in a 5-year-old girl with a history of trauma found that a silicone putty stent serves as an accurate guide for composite restoration.
