Editorial: Implantology & Education

Dr Rolf Vollmer

As 2015, an eventful year of implantology, is coming to a close, a review on the DGZI’s activities shows its great dedication to implantology. The German Association for Dental Implantology (DGZI) has been active both in Germany and abroad and its cooperative partners, its various resources and concepts will make sure that the DGZI continues to be a significant influence on implantological education around the world...

Incidence of postoperative infections in dental procedures

Prof. Mauro Labanca, Italy

The risk of post-surgical infections in dental surgery and the management of the same has been widely studied and referenced in medical literature...


Abutment fracture in a bridge supported by natural teeth and implants

Dr Gregory-George Zafiropoulos, Dr Giorgio Deli & Dr Rainer Valentin, Germany/Italy

Implant treatment has evolved into a reliable modality for the replacement of missing teeth. Although rare, complications may occur, and some uncertainty surrounds the treatment of some of these events, especially when restorations are supported by a combination of natural teeth and implants.1 Often the fabrication of an entirely new restoration is necessary if one or several of the natural teeth need to be removed. Here, we report two cases in which a natural tooth abutment of a restoration supported by implants and natural teeth fractured. We describe the technique used to replace the fractured tooth with an implant, which allowed the re-use of the existing restoration...


Minimally invasive implant placement without the use of biomaterials - The bone expansion technique

Dr Gilles Chaumanet, MSc, France/Italy

The success rate in implantology is close to 96 per cent. Thanks to well-established implant placement protocols, with a few differences according to the implant system used, the predictability of the result under optimum tissue conditions is quite significant. It is very different when these conditions do not meet the recognised standards in terms of volume and quality for reproducibility in implantology. Thin ridges, for example, which are frequent occurrences, will require a long and costly process for patients, because they entail bone augmentation or possibly support tissue grafts...


CAD/CAM custom-milled titanium bar for rehabilitation of an atrophic upper jaw

Dr Richard Marcelat, France

CAD/CAM is playing an increasing role in the production of implant-retained prostheses. These digital technologies constitute a major advancement in terms of fit accuracy of the superstructure.1, 2 Rehabilitating a fully edentulous upper jaw with an implant-retained overdenture may require delicate treatment because of the biomechanical and anatomical considerations associated with severe bone resorption. This article describes the contribution of these new digital technologies to the construction of milled bars for rehabilitation in such cases...


Complete reconstruction for a patient with chronic tooth decayThe damage undone

Dr Ara Nazarian, USA

When oral health is neglected for extensive periods of time, dental conditions like tooth decay and periodontal disease can advance to a point that, prior to the advent of implant therapy, was considered hopeless. If a patient presented with extensive caries and a non-restorable set of dentition, practitioners had no choice but to extract the teeth and provide the patient with a complete denture. Although beneficial to patients as a fundamental replacement of their teeth, many patients have found the fit, comfort and retention of such appliances to be problematic...


Digital precision for all indications


Ten years since its launch the NobelGuide guided surgery concept has evolved from an ambitious idea to become a solution many clinicians find indispensable. NobelGuide is a complete treatment concept for diagnostics, treatment planning and guided implant surgery—from a single missing tooth to an edentulous jaw. It helps to diagnose, plan the treatment and place implants based on restorative needs and surgical requirements...

“Our members profit from a wealth of international experience” 45th Annual International Congress of the DGZI


Not a round anniversary and yet a significant milestone: The 45th Annual International Congress organised at the beginning of October by the DGZI in Wiesbaden, Germany, marked the 45th year of Europe’s oldest implantological expert association. With 4,000 members in Germany and 12,000 members worldwide, the DGZI can boast success at home as well as abroad...


50 Years of clinical osseointegration

Georg Isbaner

More than 2,500 participants attended the 24th EAO Annual Congress at Stockholm, Sweden, and were given an update on the state-of-the-art of clinical osseointegration by a wide range of symposia, workshops and poster presentations. This year’s congress focused on the work of late Prof. Per-Ingvar Brånemark as well as other pioneers of dental implantology. The Swedisch doctor and scientist was renowned for paving the way of modern implantology with his ground-breaking discovery of the integration of artificial materials such as titanium in human bone tissue...
