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

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

 

 

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 | 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 [...]

By | May 1st, 2016|Dental Biomaterials, Interviews, Science|

 

 

Since its introduction twenty years ago, more than 2 million patients around the world have been treated for periodontal disease with Emdogain®, which has not only become the gold standard in periodontal tissue regeneration, but is also one of the best researched dental treatments currently available. Twenty years have passed since Emdogain®’s market [...]

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

By | 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)

By | March 30th, 2016|Clinical Cases, Dental Biomaterials, Dental Implants|

 

 

"The bone ring technique, as described in the following case report, has significant benefits over conventional procedures with autologous bone blocks: reduction in treatment time of between 45 and 60 minutes, avoidance of second procedure to harvest an autologous bone block and its associated risks, reduction of treatment time until the start of prosthetic restoration is [...]
