Video Highlights

  • Peri-implant tissue health
  • Impact of abutment seal on peri-implant tissues
  • Designing for Life - Improving the patient journey in refined protocols general session
  • Nobel Biocare New York Symposium 2016


The health of peri-implant soft tissues is one of the most important aspects of osseointegration needed for the long-term survival of dental implants. The soft tissue healing is illustrated by light and electron microscopic data and by 2-D animations. Particularly the cell-to-cell communications as well as the cell-to-surface interactions with new materials during early wound healing will be given. The tightness of various abutment connections under load is demonstrated and its clinical impact, in combination with abutments designed to improve the soft tissue stability, will be explained. 


Dr. Peter Schüpbach has a PhD in natural sciences from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich and is the owner of Schupbach Ltd, a Laboratory for histology, electron microscopy and imaging in Zurich, Switzerland. He is an Adjunct Professor in Periodontics at Augusta University, US. His research expertise focuses on healing events associated with dental implants and other biomaterials such as bone substitute materials and barrier membranes. He is the author and coauthor of more than 120 original articles, review articles, case reports and book chapters.
