Ryan Tak On Tse

Compend Contin Educ Dent 2021 Feb;42(2):e10-e13

Private Practice, Hong Kong.

As dental implant treatment has evolved over the years, greater emphasis has been placed on the dentofacial aspect of restorations, with strong consideration given to incisal edge position and preoperative lip dynamics. In this case report, a male patient desired a fixed implant prosthesis to replace his failing dentition and tooth-supported fixed and removable appliances. Utilizing a dentofacial analyzer, facial reference glasses, intraoral scans, and CBCT scans, the clinician was able to plan and complete the implant case in a digital workflow. Read More

Full arch monolithic zirconia prosthesis in a patient with bilateral cleft palate: A clinical report.

J Prosthet Dent 2020 Sep 23. Epub 2020 Sep 23.

Program Director and Maxillofacial Prosthodontist, Post-Graduate Prosthodontics, University of Connecticut Health Center, Farmington, Conn; Private practice, Meriden, Conn. Electronic address:

Adult patients with bilateral cleft lip and palate present unique challenges for prosthodontic treatment because of mobility of the premaxillary segment, oral-nasal communication, multiple missing and malpositioned anterior teeth, unfavorable soft tissues, and scar tissue underneath the maxillary lip. This clinical report describes the prosthodontic treatment of an adult patient with a terminal maxillary dentition and bilateral cleft palate, by using 5 dental implants and a 1-piece complete-arch fixed implant-supported prosthesis made of monolithic zirconia. The zirconia prosthesis aided in rigidly splinting not only the implants but also in orthopedically splinting the mobile premaxillary segment to the maxilla. Read More

Hyaluronic Acid Injections to Correct Lips Deformity Following Surgical Removal of Permanent Implant.

J Craniofac Surg 2020 Sep;31(6):e604-e606

Maxillofacial Surgery Unit, Department of Multidisciplinary Medical, Surgical and Dental Specialities.

One of the most attractive areas of the face are the lips, they are crucial for emotion and communication, both during animation and at rest. Throughout the years, several techniques to obtain permanent lip enhancement have been introduced, such as the use of nonresorbable fillers. The main problem related to permanent fillers is that undesirable results could not always be repaired; although lip sequelae can be addressed surgically, some surgeons will not perform this type of procedure due to its complexity and the lack of guidelines.

Orthopaedic and orthodontic treatment with hyrax, Class III elastics on mandibular miniplates, maxillary mini-implants in a Class III adolescent: A case report.

Int Orthod 2020 Dec 10;18(4):827-838. Epub 2020 Jul 10.

Maulana Azad Institute of Dental Sciences, Department of Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopaedics, Bahadur Shah Zafar Marg, 110002 New Delhi, India.

Background: The treatment of Skeletal Class III malocclusion continues to be considered as one of the biggest challenges in orthodontics as the success of its correction is largely unpredictable. Early diagnosis and treatment are highly recommended to eliminate primary etiological factors and prevent an increase in severity of the existing malocclusion. However, if the diagnosis is delayed until adulthood, treatment becomes restricted to orthognathic surgery due to limited or no remaining growth potential left. Read More
