Editorial: Exploring 
new grounds

Dr Rolf Vollmer

For more than 46 years, further education has been a topic dear to the hearts of DGZI’s editorial board. Already since its foundation in 1970, DGZI has contributed considerably to the education of our colleagues, especially by founding the DGZI study groups in 1990. These are small learning groups in which new tech - niques and case presentations are practiced...

Basic evaluation of an antimicrobial gel for peri-implantitis treatment

Dr Georg Bach & Christian Müller, Germany

Early complications, which have been regarded as the major dread in the initial phase of oral im - plantology, have become a rare phenomenon for a fairly long time. Reasons for this positive develop - ment can be found in significant improvements of the implant surfaces, improved insertion tech - niques as well as in new ways to improve the pro - spective implant site...

Maxillary implant supported ­removable 
or fixed prostheses

Dr Scott D. Ganz, USA

"Pre-surgical prosthetic planning” can be defined as the process of accumulating diagnostic infor - mation to determine which course of treatment should be considered for the fully edentate patient. The first step in patient evaluation should include conventional periapical radiographs, panoramic radiographs, oral examination, and mounted, artic - ulated study casts...


The indispensable use of CBCT in the posterior mandible

Souheil Hussaini, Dubai

The submandibular fossa (SF) is an important an - atomic landmark of the mandible, where the sub - mandibular gland resides. During dental practice, particular attention is paid to SF when conducting the placement of dental implants and other surgi - cal procedures. Any procedure undertaken has to be carried out with great care and attention in or - der to avoid perforation of this area. Anatomical variations of SF can occur, such as a deeply prom - inent and flat area with no depression. On very rare occasions, the mylohyoid ridge cannot be detected radiographically or bimanually as the observation of this variation is not always possible using a con - ventional radiograph. However, as a modern imag - ing resource, cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) allows an accurate three-dimensional as - sessment of SF as well as the identification of its degree of concavity...


Automatic crestal 
sinus lift by motorised impaction device

Dr Georges Khoury & Dr Marc Revise, France

Implant placement on the upper jaw is often confronted with insufficient bone linked to the physiological pneumatisation of the maxillary si - nuses at molar sites. Sinus lift is frequent, which may or may not be linked to the contribution of biomaterials. In this clinical case we consider the use of a new automatic device: Osteo Safe® (Anthogyr). It is an instrument that facilitates axial lifting by means of a motorised handpiece, associated with straight impaction inserts or bayonets (Fig. 1)...


For a healthy start, always use a new healing abutment

Dr Chandur Wadhwani & Steve Hurson, USA

Material in contact with the soft tissues affects the quality of the mucosal attachment. Healing of the soft tissue in the oral cavity has been under thoughtful study recently. In the article below, the authors explain the significant influence the healing abutment has on that process...
