By | June 29th, 2015|Dental Biomaterials, Products & Solutions|



Twenty years after the initial introduction of Emdogain® on the market, it is difficult to appreciate how avant-garde its developers – Prof. Hammarström and his team – were at the time. In the late 1980s, when the best outcome of surgical periodontal treatment was merely to halt the progression of periodontal disease by means [...]

Long-term clinical data shows: Roxolid® works!

By | June 26th, 2015|Dental Implants, Science|



Could you treat more patients with implants if you could avoid bone augmentation procedures, and thus meet your patients' needs better? Would you be more interested in implant treatment, if the procedure was less invasive? In 2012, the first 1-year data showed promising results, confirming the benefits of having the option of small-diameter implants [...]

Independent landmark study: brand matters!

By | June 25th, 2015|Dental Implants, Products & Solutions, Science|



Researchers at Gothenburg University in Sweden have published a landmark study analyzing the short- and long-term effectiveness of dental implants in a large number of randomly selected patients. The basic finding is that implant success is influenced by brand, with Straumann being ahead. Key observation: implant success is influenced by brand, with Straumann being ahead Using [...]

Lecture: “Contemporary concepts and new developments for improving the outcomes of reconstructive periodontal surgery”

By | June 22nd, 2015|Dental Biomaterials, Events, Products & Solutions|



A lecture by Prof Anton Sculean, University of Bern Aims: Advances in cell and molecular biology have contributed to increased understanding of wound healing of various tissues, and revealed a great complexity of processes involved. In general, the outcome of wound healing can be characterized either as repair, i.e. scar tissue formation that differs in form and/or [...]

Lecture: “Augmentation procedures of soft and hard tissues using biomaterials – predictable in the daily practice”

By | June 22nd, 2015|Dental Biomaterials, Events, Products & Solutions|



A lecture by Daniel Rothamel Aims One of the most challenging procedures in dental implantology is the predictable and safe regeneration of bone and soft tissue defects. Although autogenous bone is still considered being the golden standard, different biomaterials such as bone substitutes and membranes have shown predictable results in augmentation procedures of the [...]
