With an ageing population and the resulting ‘edentulism boom’, the All-on-4TM concept is an excellent addition to implant dentists’ repertoire. Dentists can fit a fixed bridge on just four implants with no need for invasive bone grafts or sinus lifts. Cases that require immediate extraction can have an immediate bridge within the same surgical procedure – there’s no need for a removable denture at any stage! Talk to Nobel Biocare’s skilled and knowledgeable staff to find out more. For dentists who do not want to place implants but would like to learn about the benefits of implant restoration, ask about the advantages of EAP! EAP, or Esthetic Alliance Program, is a proven program run by surgeons and supported by Nobel Biocare. Step-by-step, GDPs are taught the basics of restorative dentistry while stronger referral networks are forged between the referring dentists, surgeons and labs. Whether you are a seasoned implantologist or just thinking of moving into restorative dentistry, come to see Nobel Biocare at stand G40 and discover more about the opportunities that await you!

Powered by a pump that is primed manually, the Powerfloss requires no battery or other power source. It consists of a removable reservoir component and a nozzle that can be stored inside the reservoir to make it easier to carry or pack. The Powerfloss is available now, with a RRP of £14.99.

Straight Talk Seminars are the only UK official trainers, and they offer both hands-on and online courses for dental professionals. Dr Ronak Patel from Victoria Dental Centre attended the hands-on training course after hearing about it from colleagues. “The best experience when learning a new skill is to actually do it yourself, so the hands-on course gave me a great incentive to book. The course itself was a thoroughly enjoyable day, combining hands-on training with theory-based and actual case examples. “The idea of straightening patients’ labial segments appealed to me immediately due to the high number of patients requesting to have their small discrepancies corrected. The Inman Aligner allows me to offer patients more choice in restorative and orthodontic treatments, reducing the amount of aggressive preparations on the teeth, maintaining ethics and applying the principal of minimally invasive dentistry!
