Wiebe Derksen: Application of the Straumann® BLT Ø 2,9 mm implant in the esthetic zone

By | 2017-08-17T08:29:27+00:00 May 30th, 2017|Clinical Cases, Dental Implants|

The restoration design described in this case report guarantees a biocompatible transmucosal zone and prevents cement excess. Bone remodeling is reduced thanks to the asymmetrical Variobase® abutment and this biocompatible restoration design (Fig. 19). The new implant diameter gives us clinicians the opportunity to provide our patients with clinically acceptable implant restorations even in [...]

Live from the ITI World Symposium 2017: Urs Belser on the future of implant dentistry

Basel is a hotspot for art and architecture, and dentistry is a kind of art. Switzerland plays an important role in implant dentistry which is constantly evolving towards digitization and has to deal with increasing patient expectations. Urs Belser's hope for the future of our field is that prevention and biological thinking become center [...]

Live from the ITI World Symposium 2017: Bilal Al-Nawas on Reducing Invasiveness

By | 2017-08-17T08:29:27+00:00 May 6th, 2017|Dental Implants, Interviews, Science, Trends|

For the patient, the question "How much do I suffer?" remains crucial when it comes to dental implant therapy. Expectations have evolved while surgical techniques and the "hardware" have become more and more refined and sophisticated. Bilal Al-Nawas welcomes the trend towards smaller implants and observes the increasing importance of biomaterials. Professor [...]

José Manuel Losada: Post extraction implant placement with bone and soft tissue graft combined with immediate provisionalization in a damaged socket (BLT/Variobase)

By | 2017-08-17T08:29:29+00:00 April 12th, 2017|Clinical Cases, Dental Implants|

This case shows that, while it is necessary to continue to deepen and analyze this procedure in the long term, the results obtained to date are equivalent to, or more favorable than, those achieved when procedures are performed in stages. These results have been very motivating to continue to deepen this therapeutic strategy. The [...]

Andrea Pandolfi: Reducing invasiveness with a Straumann® Bone Level 3.3 mm narrow-diameter implant and botiss mucoderm®

By | 2017-08-17T08:29:29+00:00 April 12th, 2017|Biomaterials, Clinical Cases, Dental Implants|

In this case, the patient refused to have the bone volume increased by means of a block graft or GBR technique in a two-step approach. Therefore she was offered a less invasive protocol with a single surgical step and a minimally invasive flap, GBR and use of botiss mucoderm® for horizontal tissue augmentation. [...]

Michael Kristensen: Straumann® Novaloc® attachments on 4 Straumann® RN/NNC for retention of full upper denture with palatal reduction. A case report

By | 2017-08-17T08:29:30+00:00 March 30th, 2017|Clinical Cases, Dental Implants, Dental Prosthetics|

In the present case, four Straumann® RN/NNC implants with Straumann® Novaloc® attachments added high retention to a full upper denture. The four implants were placed almost parallel, making it an easy case for the dental technician as well. Sometimes the anatomy of the residual upper ridge gives the implants in the front an anterior [...]
