France Lambert & Eric Rompen: Proper soft tissue handling to improve the outcome of implant restorations

Unstable soft tissue seal at implants favors an inflammatory reaction that can lead to facial recession, pocket formation and loss of bone support. The more stable and tight the soft tissue seal, the more predictable the outcome of implant rehabilitation. A major criterion influenc...

Bernard Touati: Optimize the biology and tissue behaviour for an esthetic end result

Dental implant treatments are constantly evolving in order to improve harmonious esthetic integration. This lecture will focus on a new concept, On1, allowing biological advantages in the fragile soft-tissue implant /restoration interface. Avoiding disturbance of the biologic space...

Stefan Holst: The importance of a system. Interface precision in conical connection implants.

A key aspect of performance assessment is that a system is only as strong as its weakest link, and that the performance of any component depends not only on the component itself, but also on its interactions within the system. The interface between implant and abutment is critical...

How does cementation of implant restorations impact osseointegration?

What do we know about cement? How it flows, excessive amounts and hydraulic forces arising from cement can lead to both hard and soft tissue destruction. These concepts and furthermore, how should we mitigate the risks of using cement, will be discussed.

Eirik Salvesen: Bringing together new product innovations in a cement-free posterior solution

Posterior implant placement is a common treatment modality in our practices.  However, it poses many challenges for the clinician.  Dr. Salvesen discusses the need for simple, predictable, and reliable options in order to provide treatment that limits the patient’s “time to teeth.”...

Chandur Wadhwani: The impact of cement, its techniques and protocols for long term outcomes

Residual cement is considered a main causal risk factor for peri-implant disease. Cement remnants causing microbial activity, immune reaction, allergic response, activation of titanium surface may be the route by which bone is lost around implants. Dr Wadhwani discusses the...
