I wish to thank Dr. Ken Hebel and Dr. Reena Gajjar for their support, their commitment and their contribution to making the seminal phase of the Clinical eChronicle of Treatment Outcomes a reality. This is the future of all elearning efforts………CRITICAL THINKING IN TREATMENT PLANNING, DISCUSSION FORUMS, ENHANCED GRAPHICS AND ANIMATION, WEBCASTS, REAL TIME EVENTS, HANDS ON TRAINING and ARCHIVES AND LIBRAIRIES INTERLINKED AND NEXUS’D. Welcome to the present………throw in an iPHONE or an iPAD and you’ve discovered the magic and wonder of MOBILE BLENDED LEARNING.
Category – Replacement in the Esthetic Zone:
This patient was referred by a periodontist for replacement
of the maxillary central incisors. Both teeth were condemned due to short
roots, mobility and attachment loss. The treatment plan was the extraction of
the central incisors, along with implant placement and all ceramic

Looks beautiful! Soft tissue handling was excellent, as was implant placement.
But do you think maybe a cotton pellet or soft Gutta percha should have been used over the screw heads in the zirconia custom abutments and THEN the crowns cemented over them?
Just me thinking. What”s everyone else thinking?
Thanks for taking the time to comment on Ken”s case. Would you consider providing us cases of yours to post. The value that the Clinical eChronicle will bring to those who “share and care” their case work is that My Dental Hub will analyze the body of work and determine the suitability of new graphics and animations to represent the trends and techniques being showcases. It”s a self generating dynamic, the true essence of elearning.
