Bernard Touati: Optimize the biology and tissue behaviour for an esthetic end result
- On-1 concept
- Benefits of reducing abutment disconnections for peri-implant tissue health
- Nobel Biocare New York Symposium 2016
- Design and engineering to optimize soft and hard tissue outcomes general session
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 by transferring the restorative/platform interface from the bone up to the soft-tissue level facilitates the procedures of the restorative team.
The speaker will describe how the concept “one-base/one -time" works, and its flow of advantages for the treating team which can choose either cemented or screw-retained solutions, regular impressions or intra-oral scanning.
