Successful immediate implant placement associated with immediate loading remains one of the biggest clinical challenges. In addition to the placement of an implant into a tooth socket concurrently with extraction, the creation of a screw-retained CAD/CAM provisional prosthetic restoration is critical for the esthetic outcome. Currently, the procedure can be achieved using a conventional [...]

Ron Leehacharoenkul: Esthetic tooth replacement (Straumann® Bone Level Implant)

Self-Directed Learning (SDL), a process by which individuals take the initiative – with or without the assistance of others – in diagnosing their own learning needs and formulating learning goals, has been identified as an essential skill for clinicians. As dental clinicians, our busy patient schedules and time constraints prevent us from updating our [...]

Adrian Kasaj: Treatment of multiple recessions with a modified coronally advanced flap (botiss mucoderm®)

By | 2017-08-17T08:29:39+00:00 October 9th, 2016|Clinical Cases, Dental Biomaterials|

A 29-year-old female patient presented at our clinic with the desire for an esthetic improvement of her teeth. Teeth 1.2 to 1.4 showed multiple Miller class I recessions with a particularly deep recession of >6mm at tooth 1.3 (Fig. 1). The patient was healthy with good oral hygiene. She raised concerns against the harvesting of a [...]

The growing importance of biomaterials (botiss regeneration system)

By | 2017-08-17T08:29:39+00:00 October 6th, 2016|Dental Biomaterials, Trends|

Each situation and patient is individual – and so is the clinical user. Today, a multitude of different bonegrafting materials are available that offer attractive alternatives to patients’ autologous bone. In addition, there is widespread use of various membranes and other collagen-based materials that support bone and soft tissue regeneration. All of these materials [...]

Jorge M. Galante: Predictable GBR procedures in sites with high esthetic compromise (botiss Jason® membrane/Straumann® BoneCeramic)

The patient, a 45 year-old female in good general systemic health, had undergone some unsuccessful dental treatments, with failed restorations resulting in the loss of multiple maxillary teeth. Teeth 1.2 to 2.2 were extracted after failed endodontic treatments and periapical complications. The aim of the patient was to replace the removable partial prosthesis with [...]

Algirdas Puišys: Mucosal tissue thickening around bone-level implants (botiss mucoderm®)

A 54-year old patient with a missing tooth 3.6 came to our clinic and asked for a restoration of an implant-borne crown. He demonstrated good oral and systemic health; no significant health problems that might influence the treatment were marked. Intraorally, the tooth gap in region 3.6 was noted. The alveolar ridge was slightly [...]

Collagen membranes in regenerative dental medicine

By | 2017-08-17T08:29:40+00:00 October 5th, 2016|Dental Biomaterials, Science|

Guided tissue and guided bone regeneration (GTR, GBR) are well-established techniques in dentistry to augment lost tissue around teeth and dental implants respectively (Nyman et al. 1980, Karing et al. 1980, Nyman et al. 1982, Dahlin et al. 1988). The basic principle of these methods is the placement of a barrier membrane between the [...]
