Editorial: Munich extraordinaire!

Dr Georg Bach

editorial | 03 4 2016 implants Munich extraordinaire! Dear colleagues, Anything but ordinary—Our DGZI family has only recently experienced eventful days in Munich during our 46 th International Annual Congress. Extraordinary, no doubt, was the choice of Munich as event location, which certainly is always worth a trip. Moreover, the two congress days were packed with knowledge and expertise of renowned speakers from Germany and abroad, organised by congress makers Prof. Dr Herbert Deppe and Prof. (CAI) Dr Roland Hille. We also experienced an exceptional cooperation among colleagues, within the lecture halls as well as during the evening event on the Octoberfest Wiesn at the Löwenbräu brewery, which has proven to be an unforgettable event especially for our international guests. Furthermore, we have seen an exceptional congress organisation, which is why I would like to especially thank our headquarters and their leader Dr Torsten Hartmann as well as the OEMUS MEDIA AG team...

Survival of allogenic corticocancellous bone block - Horizontal alveolar process augmentation for implant placement

Dr Dadi Hrafnkelsson, M.Sc., Denmark

Loss of mastication or aesthetics that is to be restored by dental implants requires sufficient volume and quality of alveolar bone. 1–3 It is important for the primary stability and the long term success of any dental implant treatment. The famous golden standard remains to be the autologous bone block 4, 5 as it is not involved in any immunological concerns, and contains vital cells. However, the vitality of the graft is highly dependent on the perioperative storage of the graft. 6 It is generally accepted that class IV and V, according to the Cawood and Howell classification, 7 need block augmentation before implant placement. The use of osseous allograft blocks for alveolar process augmentation is not very well documented in the literature...


Straightforward advanced complex in dental implantology

Dr Rolf Vollmer, Dr Patricia Wieschollek and the laboratory team of Michael Anger, Germany

SAC (Straightforward Advanced Complex) defines the level of difficulty in dental implantology. Originally created by the ITI team in order to describe difficulties in dental implant surgery, this term has also been applied and adapted to dental prosthetics. This article presents a surgically moderately difficult but prosthetically highly demanding case. The special difficulty arose when the implant position was planned in a perfect alignment but impeding the prosthetic restoration. In close cooperation with the dental laboratory and due to backward planning, the patient could be provided with an individual, if not even unconventional solution...


The atrophic crest - Vestibular cortical stabilisation with bone graft

Dr Paolo Borelli & Dr Massimiliano Favetti, Italy

The insertion of implants in atrophic bone crests can easily create fenestrations in the coronal part of the implant site. For this reason, many authors advocate using GBR (guided bone regeneration) to prevent possible dehiscence in the post-surgical phase and to guarantee the survival of implants, which is attributed to adequate bone thicknesses in the corticovestibular portion of the crest. 1-2 Vestibular bone loss is frequently caused by the technique used to prepare the implant site, that, for insertion of an implant of Ø 3.75 mm diameter, usually anticipates an osteo - tomy with a drill of at least Ø 3.2 mm diameter...


The use of narrow implants

Dr Huub van’t Veld, Netherlands

he development of very narrow implants can provide a solution for interdental spaces in the aesthetic zone that are smaller than 5–6 mm and in which implantology is indicated to fill the diastema with an implant-supported crown. Increasingly, in the choice of the implant not only the quantity (> 1 mm) and quality of the surrounding bone are important but also the support function of the bone to obtain a good mucosal seal. The major implant brands have developed small diameter implants for these narrow spaces. Nobel has the 3.0 mm NobelActive implant, about which many publications have alreadypeared; Astra has the OsseoSpeed 3.0 mm implant and DENTSPLY has the Xive 3.0 implant...


Comparison of 
bone-graft substitutesRisks and benefits of synthetic 
and bovine derivate materials

Dr Robert J. Miller, MA, DDS, FACD, DABOI

The topic bone graft substitutes or bone regeneration and the question whether to apply xenografts, allografts or synthetically created materials still causes controversial discussions in oral and maxillofacial surgery. Yet, there are no doubts about the progress and the good clinical experiences made with biomimetic materials in the last two decades. The main discussion in this product group concerns a substitution with persisting volume and no or extremely slow resorption versus a complete degradation of the inserted material and transformation to vital bone with the unavoidable attendant symptom of controlled loss of volume. The following article shows risks and benefi ts of established bone-graft materials and why the author prefers synthetic bone regeneration...


Interview: “ Powerful, but remarkably gentle to the bone”

Georg Isbaner talked to Prof. Moses Ofer

Georg Isbaner, editor of implants, talked to Prof. Moses Ofer from Alpha-Bio Tec about the company’s new implant system NeO implants. They also discussed how thread design and implant surface properties effect osseointegration and trends in implantological research and clinical applications.


Interview: “The surface that the bone was waiting for”

Interview with Klockner Implant System

Klockner Implant System recently launched their new implants surface ContacTi in Barcelona/Spain, a city renowned for its spectacular architecture and timeless design. On the occasion of this product launch, Klockner Implant System discussed their products, scientific standards and a company philosophy which likewise strives for a unique design and consistent scientifi c properties in their products. In their interview with implants: international magazine of oral implantology, they also gave an outlook on future developments of the international implant market...
