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

By | 2017-08-17T08:29:35+00:00 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 [...]

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

By | 2017-08-17T08:29:39+00:00 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 [...]

International Team for Implantology statement: Considerations to avoid augmentation procedures for fixed restorations of edentulous dental arches

By | 2017-08-17T08:29:50+00:00 March 31st, 2016|Dental Implants, Dental Prosthetics, Science|

For the edentulous mandible, the literature supports immediate loading of 4 to 6 implants with a moderately rough surface along with a fixed dental prostheses. There is sufficient evidence that posterior implants can be placed in a tilted inclination where the bone ridge height does not allow for a straight implant to be placed. [...]

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

By | 2017-08-17T08:29:51+00:00 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 [...]

Lecture: “Straumann® Osteogain – A new chapter in the clinical use of enamel matrix proteins”

By | 2017-08-17T08:30:01+00:00 June 19th, 2015|Dental Biomaterials, Education, Events, Products & Solutions|

A lecture by David L. Cochran Aims Enamel matrix proteins have been clinically used for more than 2 decades and have been documented by vast clinical and preclinical research. Despite the broad biologic potential of enamel matrix proteins to stimulate various cell and tissue types into regenerative and tissue forming patterns, the potential of [...]
