Digital Dynanometer for Cementation and its Influence on the Film Thickness of Ceramic Restorations
Marcelo Taveira Barbosa*, Mauro A. Caldeira de Andrada, Luiz Clovis Cardoso Vieira, Luiz Narciso Baratieri

The aim of this study was to develop a standardization technique of cementation force. Firstly, a digital dynamometer for clinical application was developed for standardization of the cementation force. Next, the accuracy of the dynamometer was verified through a comparative evaluation of the internal adaptation of all-ceramic crowns cemented under digital force or using the device.

Calcium aluminate based-cements for endodontic application

Lucas da Fonseca Roberti Garcia*

Despite the good clinical performance of MTA cement, some of its negative features must be considered. These deficiencies justify the research and development of new materials with adequate physico-mechanical and biological properties, such as calcium aluminate-based cements. Calcium aluminate based-cements have a great potential in the dental area due to their biological compatibility, mechanical strength and good physico-chemical properties.

Case Report

Posterior Maxillary Segmental Osteotomy for Prosthetic Rehabilitation
Alecsandro Moura Silva, MSD*, Milagros Del Valle Abras Ankha, DDS, Sarina Maciel Braga Pereira, César Dalmolin Bergoli, PhD, Lafayette Nogueira Junior, Phd

A patient with a significant posterior maxillary extrusion and no residual occlusal space for prosthodontics rehabilitation sought for treatment. After clinical examination was decided, in accordance with the patient, performed a posterior maxillary segmental osteotomy and prosthodontics rehabilitation with a removable partial denture. The surgery and the removable partial denture were planned with the use of a semi adjustable articulator.
