London calling: Limited places available for final Nobel Biocare symposium of 2017

London calling: Limited places available for final Nobel Biocare symposium of 2017

 

Dental professionals have one last chance this year to experience the high-quality educational experience of a Nobel Biocare symposium when the final event of the 2017 series takes place in in London, UK, November 10–11.

A limited number of places are still available for the event, which will be held at the Millennium Gloucester Hotel. The symposium will offer lectures and master classes from both globally renowned experts and the leading local names in implantology.

Speakers include Dr. Rubén Davó from Alicante, Spain, who will present the new Trefoil system for the first time in the UK. Launched on October 5, the Trefoil system is a breakthrough in efficiency for treating the edentulous mandible, enabling a fixed and definitive prosthesis on the day of surgery.1

As a principal investigator in an international multi-center study of the Trefoil system conducted prior to launch, Dr. Davó is one of very few clinicians in the world already experienced in treating patients with this latest Nobel Biocare innovation.

The latest techniques for the treatment of edentulous patients and those with a failing dentition will also be addressed on stage by Prof. Paulo Malo, from Lisbon, Portugal–the pioneer of the original, proven All-on-4® treatment concept–and London-based Dr. Andrew Dawood, who will present the management of the atrophic maxilla using zygomatic implants.

Other highlights include a comprehensive program covering the integrated digital workflow. Nobel Biocare’s collaborative workflow has been developed to significantly increase treatment efficiency and patient acceptance with the latest digital innovations.2,3 International speakers on the topic include Switzerland’s Dr. Roland Glauser and Drs. Leon Pariente and Karim Dada of Paris, France, who will discuss these latest digital trends shaping implantology and their benefits.

Over 6,000 dental professionals have attended the 10 Nobel Biocare symposia held already this year, with hundreds more expected in London.

Dental CAD/CAM systems – the future of your laboratory?

Dental CAD/CAM systems – the future of your laboratory?

 

 

Of the total population worldwide, around 20% is edentulous and even more is partially edentulous.1 The demand for dental implants is increasing and clinicians will be requiring more dental prosthetics faster. If your lab is looking for opportunities to grow, then meeting this need by expanding with the help of digital dentistry could be the answer.

 

Great expectations

Dentistry continues to develop and labs, small and large, are required to continually meet the high standards expected by practices and patients, as well as by regulatory bodies such as the FDA2. It can be challenging to meet regulatory standards, provide esthetic and reliable restorations, and run a profitable a sustainable business. One way of reconciling these demands is by investing in technology and equipment that can provide a competitive advantage and opportunities for growth.

 

CAD/CAM milling

 

Transform your lab with dental CAD/CAM

Through the advancement of dental technology, such as computer-aided design and computer-aided manufacturing (CAD/CAM), the entire process has been transformed, bringing significant benefits to both practices and labs alike. According to recent literature3,4 these include:

¾    Improving patient acceptance

¾    Reducing distortion of impression materials

¾    Improving data acquisition, management and storage

¾    Helping to standardize procedures

¾    Improving communication between clinicians and labs

¾    Reducing production time and effort

As a result, dental CAD/CAM tools help enhance efficiency, by saving labs time and creating user-friendly workflows. They also enhance quality, as precision-engineered and manufactured components are designed to reduce risks that may lead to implant failure.6 Furthermore, the dental CAD/CAM system can be broken down into several distinct phases, with the possibility of moving between digital and analog workflows at several stages5, offering flexibility for the user.  

 

Speed, accuracy, efficiency and consistency can all be enhanced, allowing high-quality dental devices to be routinely fabricated, bringing new solutions to patients. These improvements are not achievable with conventional methods, requiring cutting-edge processing technologies and systems.3

 

 

NobelProcera prosthetics range

 

Getting started with CAD/CAM systems

Investing in dental CAD software can provide labs with a chance to increase production and keep costs competitive. Getting the right software for your business is necessary for a cost-effective, predictable and accurate outcome. By working closely with a reputable software manufacturer you can get the support you need to create esthetic restorations with fast turnaround times.

 

Nobel Biocare has recently launched in conjunction with Kavo Kerr the new DTX Studio™ software, which will offer powerful CAD tools with an intuitive interface. It will enable the quick and easy design of the desired restoration, whether tooth- or implant based.

 

Alternatively, you can outsource the design and production of CAD/CAM prosthetics to NobelProcera Scan and Design Services.  Available for implant bars, abutments and implant crowns, you can save time and avoid investment in equipment and staff training, while providing your customers with precision-fit prosthetics.

 

NobelProcera Scan and Design Services

 

With the advancement of digital dentistry, more opportunities are becoming available to labs. We are at a point in the evolution of dental restoration provision which could be as fundamental and inevitable as the progression from a typewriter to a computer.5

The innovative On1 restorative concept from Nobel Biocare offers practitioners novel treatment options to optimize implant placement and restoration.

 

Raising the connection for restorative components from bone to tissue level, the On1 Base remains in position from placement to finalization, providing undisturbed soft tissue healing. Furthermore, with two height options available, there is the flexibility to change the On1 Base should the thickness of the soft tissue require it in the short or long-term.

 

From here, the On1 Healing Cap or On1 Temporary Abutment can be connected to the base. Both support the intraoral scanning approach, which facilitates conventional impression-taking procedures for maximum accuracy and precision.

 

The On1 concept can be used with three different conical connection implant systems: NobelActive, NobelParallel and NobelReplace, which provides outstanding surgical flexibility and ease of use. For the restorative dentist, the On1 Base allows for an improved patient experience, as well as simplifying the placement of restorative components due to the tissue level base.

 

Discover today how the On1 concept from Nobel Biocare can help you achieve exceptional results for your patients.

It’s all about the patient

It’s all about the patient

 

 

“The conference provided a very informative day, covering a varied range of topics and I found it interesting to see all the new developments and research. It was great that so many speakers who are top of the profession worldwide came to Dublin and I found it useful to get reaffirmation that we’re following good protocols and achieving the same success rates as those international leaders.” – Dr Eoin Fleetwood, Eyre Square Dental Clinic in Galway

 

Entitled Osseointegration Reimagined, Nobel Biocare’s Dublin Team Conference 2016 highlighted just how far dental implantology has come since those early days.

 

The full-day programme brought a piece of June’s Global Symposium in New York to Ireland, demonstrating Nobel Biocare’s total commitment to education and innovation. An array of world-class speakers took delegates on a journey through the development of dental implants, with lectures in the morning and smaller masterclasses and workshops in the afternoon.

 

From where it all began, Professor David Harris kicked off proceedings by paying tribute to Professor Per-Ingvar Brånemark, before Dr Bertil Friberg reminisced about what dental implantology was like in the 80s. It seems strange to realise that only 20 years ago, patients had to wear a denture for one year before implants could be placed in healed extraction sites!

 

Professor Hannes Watchel, Dr Ana Ferro and Dr Paul O’Reilly then offered their own experiences from Munich, Lisbon and Ireland, each emphasising the benefits of implants for patients and their quality of life. Modern treatment options for compromised patients were also discussed, with Dr Dawood considering situations where customised implants, cutting-edge 3D printing and innovative ideas were combined to deliver truly life-changing solutions.

 

Exploring the height of implant innovation, the final plenary session challenged the status quo with respect to the digital integrated workflow and CAD/CAM restorations and highlighted the importance of respecting the soft tissue. Dr Rompen also introduced the exciting new On1 concept, which brings the restorative platform from bone level to tissue level for maximum soft tissue attachment and optimised healing.

 

 

Throughout the morning’s lectures, a clear trend developed. All speakers – regardless of specialism or nationality – were passionate about simplifying the clinical workflow for a faster, more predictable and more cost-effective procedure for the patient.

 

Dr Robert Bowe from Bowe Dental Clinic in Limmerick commented:

 

“This was a very well-organised conference, where speakers provided different, innovative solutions to implant problems we face every day. Throughout the morning sessions there was a lot of new evidence presented, as a result of which I will look to modify my own practice. As with all Nobel Biocare events, I learnt something new and came away with a renewed enthusiasm for implant dentistry. It is also great to have the opportunity to talk with colleagues – it’s reassuring to know that we all face the same challenges and that there are solutions out there!”

 

In addition to all this, there were plenty of opportunities to network with industry-leading professionals, while also catching up with friends and colleagues. The Innovation Evening saw delegates and speakers come to together to enjoy a fantastic meal and entertainment, and a great time was had by all.

 

Paul O’Reilly, Scientific Co-Chair, added:

 

“Nobel Biocare is to be commended for assembling an impressive array of national and international speakers for this conference. As well as some outstanding lectures, a programme of hands on workshops and masterclasses allowed attendees to try innovative products, learn new techniques and gain an appreciation for the rapid advances that are occurring in treatment options for our patients.”

Gateway to Effective Tissue Regeneration and Implant Success

Gateway to Effective Tissue Regeneration and Implant Success

 

 

‘Guided bone and tissue regeneration’ is defined by the American Academy of Periodontology as ‘procedures attempting to regenerate lost periodontal structures through differential tissue responses... typically referring to ridge augmentation or bone regenerative procedure.’ Regeneration of periodontal attachment, and barrier techniques are employed to exclude epithelium and the gingival corium from the root or existing bone surface so that they do not interfere with regeneration.

 

In the early 1980s, the focus within the development of the technique was placed on the barrier membrane, which needed to exclude cells, maintain space and stabilise clots effectively. Both unresorbable and resorbable membranes were developed, and since then materials and products have come a long way.

 

It is estimated that half of all modern dental implant cases require a regenerative procedure.[1] In order that these procedures enable achievement of the best possible results, clinicians need the appropriate skills and reliable tools. As any degree of movement can disrupt the formation of new bone or tissue, it is essential that the graft is placed accurately and securely to facilitate effective healing.

 

With a 40-year heritage of scientific research and innovation, Nobel Biocare offers an array of cutting-edge solutions to streamline your workflow and enhance clinical results. Their latest solution for use in guided bone and tissue regeneration procedures is the creosTM xenoprotect, composed of a network of highly purified porcine collagen and elastin fibres, interwoven to form a dense mesh.

 

Unique handling and ease of use

This biodegradable non-crosslinked collagen membrane has excellent handling properties. Compared to competor products,[2] creos xenoprotect can be cut or pre-shaped when dry according to the size of the individual defect. Its hydrophilic nature ensures that the hydration process takes only seconds,[3] and with no functionally preferred side, the membrane can be placed on either side to facilitate ease of use.

 

Due to a minimal increase in size when moist, you do not have to make allowances for expansion – what you cut off is what you use, making it very cost-effective. The membrane is also easy to unfold and reposition even when hydrated, enabling you to consistently achieve excellent results while saving you time and money. With three different size membranes – 15x20mm (small), 25x30mm (medium) and 30x40mm (large) – available, wastage is reduced.

 

Enabling you to make better use of your time and enhancing the patient experience, the membrane is resorbable requiring no further surgery for its removal. Designed to resorb safely over a prolonged degradation time,3 the aesthetic outcome is improved, providing convenience for you and your patient.

 

Reliability and strength

 

Croes xenoprotect membrane acts as an impenetrable barrier against unwanted cells, paving the way for vital in-growth of osteogenic cells and blood vessel penetration. Key to its reliable success is its high mechanical strength and degradation resistance for prolonged stability and long-lasting protection of the graft material.[4] It is also highly tear resistant and its elastin fibres create a flexible material that can be easily stretched over the defect4 and sutured without tearing.

 

 

Gateway to effective tissue regeneration

 

Created without any chemical cross-linking, the tissue integration and vascularisation properties of creos xenoprotect are not compromised3 and the ideal conditions for regeneration are achieved. Histology clearly shows the rapid formation of new blood vessels, leading to a faster and much more predictable tissue healing process.

 

Dr. Paul Worskett from Amblecote Dental Care, West Midlands, has experienced the benefits of creos xenoprotect first hand. He says:

 

"I recently used the creos membrane for the first time and I have to say it was very easy to use. It has an almost paper thin consistency which means it is easy to cut, shape and manipulate. Placement and handling was a lot easier than some membranes I have used in the past and complete flap closure was possible without relieving the periosteum. At suture removal follow up a week later, I found the tissues to be in excellent condition and the patient was very happy. I will certainly use this product again and look forward to further success in the future."

 

Periodontist at Burlington Dental Clinic in Dublin, Paul O’Reilly, adds:

 

I have found the membrane very easy to use. It maintains its shape for easy trimming to the size required, it hydrates well, doesn't concertina on itself when hydrated, doesn't tear and is easy to drape over the grafted defect. Importantly it offers extended resorption time, which means it maintains its barrier function for longer.

 

“I think creos xenoprotect is a welcome addition to our regenerative armamentarium and I would certainly recommend it to a colleague – in fact I have done so already.

Finding Solutions in Technology and Collaboration

 Finding Solutions in Technology and Collaboration

Dental technicians, dentists and manufacturers all have an integral part to play in the overall patient experience. Working together as a team and utilising the very latest designs and technology can bring about solutions to previously difficult or untreatable cases.

 

Sharing experiences and striving towards the common goal of providing first-class dental care for patients, enables the best clinical results and can make a real difference to the outcome patients receive. From initial product design and manufacture, to the technical modifications made in the dental lab, and to the fitting and restoring phase in the dentist’s chair – teamwork is integral to success. This was one of the main themes highlighted at a recent event organised by The Parade Specialist Dental Centre, held at The Celtic Manor Resort in Newport and supported by leading implant product supplier Nobel Biocare.

 

The day was aimed at dentists currently placing and restoring implants, those undertaking their MSc courses and practitioners who were interested in implantology. During the inspirational and educational day, delegates had the chance to listen and learn from some of the most highly respected professionals in the field, including Dr Bertil Friberg, Dr Adrian Binney, Dr Michael Page and Dr Matthew Thomas.

 

Dr Friberg, an Associate Professor and Co-Chairman of the renowned Brånemark Clinic in Gothenburg, is one of the most experienced implant surgeons in the world, as well as an excellent teacher. He shared his experiences of working at the Brånemark Clinic, outlined the rich history of dental implantology and gave his insights on how the field will evolve and change in the coming years.

 

Dr Thomas provided an interesting lecture which included overcoming the problem of limited space with the use of the NobelActive® 3.0. This smaller and stronger implant is specifically designed for narrow spaces where practitioners may be unable to place a conventional implant, such as in the case of missing lateral incisors.

 

Dr Page continued with the theme of attaining new and exciting possibilities looking at options for patients using the latest technology, and covering CAD/CAM designed restorations for the edentulous. He showed how the latest technology is providing greater results for the most difficult of cases in a fascinating lecture.

 

Dr Binney followed this up with an equally thought-provoking presentation on the NobelProcera® Angulated Screw Channel (ASC) abutment, which is designed to offer a higher degree of restorative flexibility without using cement retained restorations and comprising aesthetics. Dr Binney showed how the ASC is perfect for placing screw retained restorations in the posterior region, as it allows for easier access and truly aesthetic anterior restorations without compromising the optimum position for implant placement .

 

Commenting on the event, Dr Binney said: “The day was a huge success and we were delighted to have the support of Nobel Biocare to enable us to offer delegates an educational and inspiring day.”

 

The day was concluded with a brilliant insight into the dental technicians’ role in a superb lecture from John Craddock, Director at Synergy Dental Laboratory in Cardiff. With John and his team present, the event provided a well-rounded account of the dental workflow, emphasising the importance of the relationship between laboratory and clinician and ensuring delegates understood the entire journey from beginning to end.

 

Teamwork remains essential to success and manufacturers, technicians and practitioners each have a role to play in providing patients with high quality dental care. The idea highlighted throughout the day was that of increased strength as a comprehensive team, compared to working as individuals, encouraging all to communicate effectively in order to solve challenges faced. With the correct products, right skills and successful collaboration, solutions can be found for even the most challenging of cases.

Pushing the Boundaries of Education and Training in Implant Dentistry

Pushing the Boundaries of Education and Training in Implant Dentistry

Clinical competency is the foundation for excellence in dentistry. Through high quality and on-going training and education, professionals acquire and develop the appropriate skills that enable them to deliver safe and effective dental treatment to their patients.

 

Particularly in such a fast-paced profession as dentistry, where techniques, materials and technologies are rapidly advancing and changing the way treatment is provided, remaining abreast of the latest innovations and ideas is vital. Not only does this ensure competency to treat patients in the most appropriate way, but it also allows practitioners to enhance the dental care and treatment they offer. 

 

What’s more, it’s important to develop knowledge and understanding in a broad range of areas. For example, if you wish to offer implant treatment to patients it is clear that you need to complete advanced training so that you have the skills necessary for the provision of safe and effective services. However, even as a GDP who doesn’t provide such treatment directly to patients, you still need sufficient knowledge that will enable you to assess the health of implant supported restorations that you may encounter.

 

Whether clinicians require education for the placement, restoration or maintenance of dental implants, it is paramount that any training completed is of the highest calibre.

 

Passionate about improving awareness of and access to first-class tuition in the field is Ken Nicholson. Ken is the founder of the British Society of Oral Implantology, a Fellow of the International Congress of Oral Implantologists and a member of the Faculty of Examiners at RCS Edinburgh, amongst many other accolades. He is also the founder of SmileTube.tv, a learning portal designed to ensure practitioners’ competency in implant treatment. He says:

 

“The widespread use and published success of dental implant supported restorations is encouraging more and more GDPs to become involved in this treatment modality. A visit to the dentist’s section of the Yellow Pages makes it difficult to ignore the fact that an increasing number of practitioners are using the label ‘Cosmetic and Implant Practice’. Ensuring the clinician has the appropriate knowledge and skills to undertake dental implant treatment is of paramount importance.

 

“The GDC’s required learning outcomes of undergraduate education for Dentists: The First Five Years states that dental students should ‘be familiar with dental implants as an option in replacing missing teeth’. UK-qualified dentists are not expected to practise implant dentistry without undertaking structured postgraduate training and assessment of competence.

 

“The first step towards treating a patient is case assessment, where attention to detail and identification of the salient features of the case are essential. Even if a general practitioner does not wish to provide implant treatment, it is almost certain that he or she will be caring for patients with implant-supported restorations. A component of that care will be assessment of the health of the implant restoration(s) for which an understanding of implant dentistry is essential.”

 

For those wishing to perform implant treatment themselves, it is crucial that any training undertaken is carefully designed to provide both the theoretical knowledge and hands-on experience clinicians need to ensure their clinical competency.

 

Through SmileTube.tv, practitioners have access to a structured, blended learning programme that is tailored to equip them with the necessary knowledge and skill to place and restore dental implants, in a safe environment. The course involves four online modules, which can be completed at a time and from a place of the delegate’s choosing for ultimate engagement and effectiveness of learning. Training concludes with eight clinical days where delegates can develop practical skills for placing and restoring implants, while under the supervision of leading implant practitioners across the country and with access to cutting-edge facilities.

 

“The SmileTube.tv ‘Ultimate Implant Year Course’ delivered in partnership with Nobel Biocare provides delegates with the core knowledge and competence in implant dentistry expected of a GDP, as described by the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh for the Diploma in Implant Dentistry at the College,” continues Ken. “The knowledge component of the course, and assessment of that knowledge, is delivered online through the purpose designed e-learning platform SmileTube.tv, and delegates are able to revisit any material as many times as they need for the duration of the course. The clinical skills component, and skills assessment, is delivered through one of a network of clinical training centres throughout the UK and Ireland.

 

“I believe Nobel Biocare to be a global leader in implant dentistry with a hugely impressive and well documented track record. It is a proactive, innovative and forward-thinking company keen to support education and training for the GDP, which arguably offers the most comprehensive range of services, products and materials in the industry. The latest implant design from Nobel Biocare, the NobelParallel® Conical Connection (CC) implant will be one of the implant designs used on the SmileTube.tv course and promises to be an excellent platform for the newcomer to implant dentistry.

 

“As Nobel Biocare has been innovative in its approach to implant dentistry, SmileTube.tv has been innovative in its approach to education and training in the field. We hope to develop a passionate, global learning community, pushing the boundaries of education and training in implant dentistry to provide a better experience for our learners and a safe and predictable outcome for their patients.”

Interact with the Best in the Business - Rare opportunity 6th/7th November at The Brewery London

Interact with the Best in the Business

Providing a rare opportunity for you to learn and interact with more than 20 of the top global speakers in the field of implantology, the Nobel Biocare Team Conference 2015 is an event not to be missed.

Held on 6th and 7th November at The Brewery London, the conference offers an exceptional programme with lectures, hands-on workshops and masterclasses run by leading global professionals.

Among the outstanding speaker line-up will be Professor Sreenivas Koka, renowned for his leading expertise in the field of implantology and prosthetics. He will be presenting a masterclass alongside Professor Daniel van Steenberghe, entitled “Peri-implantitis: a tsunami waiting to happen? Facts and fallacy”.

“Reports of peri-implantitis are steadily increasing and it is up to the profession to ask what we can do to reduce its prevalence,” says Professor Koka.

“During our session, Professor Steenberghe will focus on the treatment and management of the condition, while I will look at how the disease is caused and what we can do to prevent it.

“We know that patient behaviours influence the development of peri-implantitis to some degree, but it is how we as clinicians use dental implants that will have the most significant affect. The key is in the treatment planning, before implant surgery is performed. We need to fully understand the science behind our decisions: where do we choose to place the implants, in what types of people and why?

“We used to have many concerns with regards to implantology, but as the procedure has become more common and success rates have improved, we have relaxed our approach slightly. This just needs tightening up again to ensure we create the best possible chances of clinical success.

“My section of the masterclass will focus on what we should be looking for and doing in preparation for implant placement. Particularly relevant for those who are relatively new to the field, the session will emphasise that implants will not always work well with every patient.”

Professor Koka will also present a lecture on “Prosthetic solutions for the edentulous patient: What, when and why?”, exploring the key prosthetic pathways for different solutions. Discussing the evolution of protocols and materials in this area, there will be an opportunity for debate regarding prosthetics for the All-on-4® treatment concept, prosthetic implant bridges, IBO and maintenance.

A member of the Scientific Committee and involved with the creation of the programme, Professor Koka concludes by highlighting the calibre of the event:

“This conference will celebrate how far we have come as a profession in the past couple of decades – the science and clinical experience we have developed is truly astounding. It will also highlight how much more there is yet to come.

“Historically, Nobel Biocare has been a major leader in the dental implant arena and this kind of programme will definitely keep it at the forefront. The conference will go back to basics, emphasising the science, education and research supporting the many products, materials and techniques used today. It’s a very exciting programme!”

A Competitive Advantage | The Angulated Screw Channel from Nobel Biocare

A Competitive Advantage | The Angulated Screw Channel from Nobel Biocare

Luc and Patrick Rutten are dental laboratory partners and dental technician educators from Belgium. They have been impressed with the Angulated Screw Channel® (ASC) concept from Nobel Biocare.

 

“The new ASC abutment has changed the way we work,” they say. “The titanium interface is more predictable than the old zirconia connection we used to rely on.

“The ability to offer a cement-free retention option is very important. Lots of dentists prefer screw-retained restorations because of the hazards of cement remnants and the complexity of cementing.

 “The ASC concept definitely gives us a competitive advantage.”

The ASC abutment and accompanying Omnigrip™ tooling offer new opportunities for the restoration of implants in the aesthetic zone.  The abutment can be placed at an angle of up to 25 degrees anywhere in a 360-degree radius, providing enhanced access even when working in limited space. With no cement necessary, there is also no risk of irritation to the gingival tissue.

For predictable and highly effective implant restorations in more cases, discover the ASC abutment and Omnigrip tooling from Nobel Biocare.

Innovation, Inspiration and Knowledge - Nobel Biocare Sponsored Sessions at EuroPerio8

Innovation, Inspiration and Knowledge Nobel Biocare

Innovation, inspiration and knowledge are key elements for the advancement and maintenance of a practitioner’s skills in dental implantology. At EuroPerio8, practitioners had the chance to hear from those at the very forefront of the profession in sessions sponsored by Nobel Biocare.


On Thursday, an outstanding line-up of leading speakers including Christer Dahlin, Iñaki Gamborena and Eric Rompen presented to a capacity crowd on ‘Hard and soft tissue parameters to support optimal aesthetics – innovative approach to materials and techniques’.

Dr Christer Dahil, Professor in Oral Surgery and Guided Tissue regeneration at the Department of Biomaerials Science, Institute for Clinical Sciences in Sweden, was the first to take to the podium. He explored the biological mechanisms that present challenges for the implant clinician, highlighting the importance of guided bone regeneration and discussing the various bone defect classifications.

Dr Iñaki Gamborena, Associate Professor at the University of Washington Dental School, was keen to highlight the importance of the soft tissue, encouraging minimally invasive techniques by exposing as little bone as possible during procedures. Favouring a graftless approach, he considered the benefits of healing abutments to improve the condition of the soft tissue before conventional abutments are placed.

Finally, Professor and Head of the Department of Periodontology / Dental Surgery at the University of Liège in Belgium, Dr Eric Rompen looked further at the interface between the soft tissue and implant. Discussing the properties and clinical evidence supporting biocompatible materials, he used case studies to demonstrate the adhesion process and warn how easily detachable the soft tissue is even when using these materials.

Throughout the inspirational session, cutting-edge products from Nobel Biocare were described which are designed specifically to enhance the clinical outcome of implant treatment. These included the Angulated Screw Channel (ASC) abutment, increasing workflow flexibility and access; PEEK healing abutments, optimising the emergence profile; and the new NobelActive® Wide Platform and NobelParellel® Conical Connection implant systems, ideal for the posterior region.

Nobel Biocare also sponsored a session on the Friday, with leading international clinicians Chadur Wadhwani, Stefan Holst and Eric Rompen once again. Entitled ‘Multi-causality of peri-implanitis – Give the bone the chance to survive’, this session explored aetiology of complex chronic infections like peri-implantitis and demonstrated factors that can facilitate bone healing.
