International Team for Implantology statement: Considerations to avoid augmentation procedures for fixed restorations of edentulous dental arches

By | 2017-08-17T08:29:50+00:00 March 31st, 2016|Dental Implants, Dental Prosthetics, Science|

For the edentulous mandible, the literature supports immediate loading of 4 to 6 implants with a moderately rough surface along with a fixed dental prostheses. There is sufficient evidence that posterior implants can be placed in a tilted inclination where the bone ridge height does not allow for a straight implant to be placed. [...]

Bernhard Giesenhagen: Vertical augmentation and simultaneous implantation of Straumann® Bone Level Implants (botiss maxgraft® bonering technique)

By | 2017-08-17T08:29:51+00:00 March 30th, 2016|Dental Biomaterials, Dental Implants|

Dr. Bernhard Giesenhagen has developed an augmentation technique which allows bone transplantation and implantation to be performed on large three-dimensional bone defects in a single operation. Today, the bone ring technique can be used for nearly all indications. In the following article, the author describes the use of the botiss allogenic maxgraft® bonering (a [...]

Bernhard Giesenhagen: Restoration of a 3D bony defect in region 46 with pre-fabricated allograft bone rings and simultaneous implantation (botiss maxgraft® bonering technique)
