CE: Innovative Staged Treatment of a Dentition Worn From the Effects of GERD and Occlusal Dysfunction Dana G. Colson, DDS, MBA
This article highlights a case study of a patient with GERD and daytime bruxism that demonstrates an approach that addressed both the patient’s urgent clinical needs and his need to engage in frequent work-related travel. A staged treatment with an altered sequence was successfully undertaken to accommodate the patient’s busy work schedule, and he was prescribed a sports mouthguard to ensure that he could continue to enjoy his stated hobby of tennis.

Restoration of a Maxillary Anterior Defect With a Rotational Path Removable Partial Denture: Clinical Report of a Patient With Cleidocranial Dysplasia Angela Gullard, DMD, PhD, MDS; and David R. Cagna, DMD, MS
This case report article describes the diagnostic evaluation, laboratory procedures, and prosthodontic treatment for a patient with CCD who had two missing maxillary anterior teeth. Following occlusal device therapy and the achievement of occlusal equilibration, restorative treatment was performed, consisting of a maxillary central incisor survey crown, rest seat preparations, and a lateral rotational path removable partial denture (RPD). The article highlights the value of this type of RPD as an alternative restoration for the replacement of missing anterior teeth.
