Scientific 3D film: “Cell-to-Cell Communication – Periodontal Regeneration”

By | 2017-08-17T08:30:00+00:00 July 6th, 2015|Education, Science|

The exceptionalism of teeth: As compared with bone, the human teeth are not subject to remodeling, in other words, continuous regeneration and degeneration. This resistance of our teeth to physiological restructuring processes is remarkable. The reason for this phenomenon can be found in the periodontium and the tooth cementum. The new scientific 3D film “Periodontal [...]

Long-term clinical data shows: Roxolid® works!

By | 2017-08-17T08:30:00+00:00 June 26th, 2015|Dental Implants, Science|

Could you treat more patients with implants if you could avoid bone augmentation procedures, and thus meet your patients' needs better? Would you be more interested in implant treatment, if the procedure was less invasive? In 2012, the first 1-year data showed promising results, confirming the benefits of having the option of small-diameter implants [...]

Clinical review: Straumann® Roxolid® SLActive® implants

By | 2017-08-17T08:30:01+00:00 June 19th, 2015|Dental Implants, Science|

Higher security in all indications Roxolid® is a unique implant material combining both excellent biocompatibility and high mechanical strength. It is a metal alloy composed of ~15 % zirconium and ~85 % titanium which leads to an increased mechanical resistance compared to pure titanium. A higher mechanical resistance of titanium-zirconium alloys compared to pure titanium has been reported by Kobayashi [...]
