Martina Stefanini: Treatment of two adjacent infrabony defects with Straumann® Emdogain®

By | March 22nd, 2017|Dental Biomaterials|

 

 

In the following case, periodontal regenerative surgery with amelogenins (Emdogain®) produced complete filling of two adjacent vertical, deep and non-contained defects in the lower jaw. Moreover, the results were well maintained in the long term (6 years), as demonstrated clinically and radiologically. The periodontal regenerative treatment changed the prognosis of the lower first molar [...]

Leonardo Trombelli: Periodontal regeneration with the Single Flap Approach (Straumann® Emdogain)

Periodontitis is the most common chronic inflammatory disease seen in humans. 5 – 15% of the worldwide population suffers from severe periodontitis that may lead to tooth loss [1]. Subjects with periodontitis have a 25% increased risk for coronary heart disease when compared to periodontitis-free individuals [2].  Over the years, many treatment strategies have [...]

Michael Kristensen: Straumann® Bone Level Tapered Implant and augmentation with cerabone®, Jason® membrane and Emdogain® in daily practice

By | February 28th, 2017|Clinical Cases, Dental Biomaterials, Dental Implants|

 

 

"Straumann® BLT implants in combination with botiss biomaterials (cerabone® and Jason® membrane) and Straumann Emdogain® made this challenging case uncomplicated, with only minimal patient discomfort after surgery and a very good esthetic result." Dr. Michael Kristensen PICTURE DOCUMENTATION INITIAL SITUATION The patient, a healthy 22-year-old male, has agenesis of 12 [...]

Augmentation of hard tissue – an overview of regenerative techniques in dentistry

By | January 12th, 2017|Dental Biomaterials, Science|

 

 

Correcting a qualitative or quantitative reduction in the bone bed before implantation can greatly improve the implant outcome. In addition to the gold standard of autologous bone grafting, the bone substitute materials currently available for this purpose can be subdivided into allogenic, xenogenic and alloplastic materials. Developments in the field of synthetic BSMs are [...]

Giovanni Zucchelli: Mucogingival surgery around teeth and implants in the anterior zone – why the goal is complete coverage (Straumann® Emdogain/botiss mucoderm®)

By | January 7th, 2017|Dental Biomaterials, Education, Science|

 

 

Gingival recession around teeth and soft tissue dehiscence around metallic implants are common grounds for dissatisfaction among patients. Exposure during smiling or function of portions of the root or implant surface are the main indications for surgical coverage procedures. Generally only the most coronal millimeter(s) of the recession is/are exposed during smiling or function, [...]

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

By | 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 | 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)

By | October 6th, 2016|Clinical Cases, Dental Biomaterials|

 

 

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 [...]
