Timing of implant placement

BACK Timing of implant placement   Implant placement and its relation to tooth extraction has been discussed for many years. Soft and hard tissue remodeling of the alveolar process have been studied extensively in the last years. Taking this knowledge into account, three main questions remain: What is happening to

New treatment options with the CAMLOG® Implant System

BACK New treatment options with the CAMLOG® Implant System Treatment options are evolving over time and concepts, which were not considered as adequate previously, are possible today, due to new and/or improved materials. Immediate placement, especially in combination with immediate loading is a controversially discussed topic. The request for such

Full digital workflow in dentistry – is it ready for us?

BACK Full digital workflow in dentistry – is it ready for us? Digital technologies have revolutionized dentistry enabling a full treatment workflow of digital image acquisition, computer-aided design (CAD) and computer-aided manufacturing (CAM). Digital imaging including three-dimensional radiographic and optical scanning techniques initiate the digital workflow and are paramount for

Key factors in the stability of the peri-implant soft tissue

BACK Key factors in the stability of the peri-implant soft tissue Implant therapy has shown excellent long-term survival rates and a clear improvement in the patient’s oral function and quality of life. However, there is still controversy on the role of the peri-implant soft tissues and how their stability may

Dental implants in aggressive periodontitis – short-term findings

BACK Dental implants in aggressive periodontitis – short-term findings Aggressive periodontitis (AgP) comprises a group of severe and rapidly progressive forms of periodontitis often characterized by an early age of clinical manifestation and a distinctive tendency for cases to aggregate in families. The use of dental implants for replacement of

Immediate restoration concept

BACK Immediate restoration concept When indications and clinical conditions are carefully considered, the immediate loading of post-extraction implant restoration is an efficient technique with a high success rate comparable to a conventional delayed loading approach. Even though, the clinical challenge remains in the implant primary stability and the tissues (hard

White roots – when & where?

BACK White roots – when & where? The ongoing discussion about sensitivities associated with dental titanium implants causes an increasing demand for all-ceramic implant systems. One-piece zirconia systems are quite successful according to recent studies. However, many situations are difficult to manage with one-piece systems. In two-piece zirconia systems, there

DIGITAL WORKFLOW – THE ANSWER OR A NEW CHALLENGE?

BACK DIGITAL WORKFLOW – THE ANSWER OR A NEW CHALLENGE? The introduction of digital technologies seems to make life so much easier. Scanning, printing, milling and applying monolithic restorations are “the talk of the town”. Although these new technologies seem to improve efficiency in many cases we have to be
