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, [...]

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 [...]
