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® Bone Level Tapered Implant and augmentation with cerabone®, Jason® membrane and Emdogain® in daily practice

By | 2017-08-17T08:29:33+00:00 February 28th, 2017|Clinical Cases, Dental Biomaterials, Dental Implants|

"Straumann® BLT implants in combination with botiss biomaterials (cerabone® and Jason® membrane) and Straumann Emdogain® made this challenging case uncomplicated, with only minimal patient discomfort after surgery and a very good esthetic result." Dr. Michael Kristensen PICTURE DOCUMENTATION INITIAL SITUATION The patient, a healthy 22-year-old male, has agenesis of 12 [...]

Gary Finelle Antoine Popelut: Sealing Socket Abutment technique (SSA) – immediate implant placement in molar site (Straumann® Tissue Level Implant, botiss cerabone®, Variobase®)

A 65-year old woman presented at our clinic for implant and prosthetic restoration of upper left (#27) and lower left molars (#36, #37) (Fig. 1). The patient’s medical history revealed no contraindications to dental implant therapy and restorative treatment. According to the patient, her lower left molars had been extracted more than 30 years [...]

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 [...]

Giovanni Zucchelli: Mucogingival surgery around teeth and implants in the anterior zone – why the goal is complete coverage (Straumann® Emdogain/botiss mucoderm®)

By | 2017-08-17T08:29:36+00:00 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, [...]

Jorge M. Galante: A combined procedure for post extraction implants with simultaneous bone and gingival regeneration and immediate temporary restoration

By | 2017-08-17T08:29:37+00:00 December 3rd, 2016|Clinical Cases, Dental Implants|

The purpose of this case report is to describe a multidisciplinary approach to tooth replacement in the aesthetic area. The challenge of this procedure is to perform, in a single session, the extraction of the tooth, the preparation of the osteotomy for implant insertion, and meticulous planning of the incision approach for the proper [...]

Roberto Sleiter/Nathalie Oppliger: Individually milled bone augmentation to restore masticatory function (botiss maxgraft® bonebuilder)

The 72-year-old healthy male patient presented at our practice in mid-2014 with the aim of improving his dental situation (Fig. 1). His quality of life was substantially impaired by his very mobile upper and lower dentures. He wanted to improve his appearance and, in particular, achieve a stable fit of his dentures, ideally by [...]

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

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 [...]

The growing importance of biomaterials (botiss regeneration system)

By | 2017-08-17T08:29:39+00:00 October 6th, 2016|Dental Biomaterials, Trends|

Each situation and patient is individual – and so is the clinical user. Today, a multitude of different bonegrafting materials are available that offer attractive alternatives to patients’ autologous bone. In addition, there is widespread use of various membranes and other collagen-based materials that support bone and soft tissue regeneration. All of these materials [...]

Jorge M. Galante: Predictable GBR procedures in sites with high esthetic compromise (botiss Jason® membrane/Straumann® BoneCeramic)

By | 2017-08-17T08:29:39+00:00 October 6th, 2016|Clinical Cases, Dental Biomaterials|

The patient, a 45 year-old female in good general systemic health, had undergone some unsuccessful dental treatments, with failed restorations resulting in the loss of multiple maxillary teeth. Teeth 1.2 to 2.2 were extracted after failed endodontic treatments and periapical complications. The aim of the patient was to replace the removable partial prosthesis with [...]
