business26 EAO Annual Scientific Congress 2015 · 24 September There is an increasing trend in implant treatment to improve pa- tientcomfortandtreatmentsafety, as well as reduce treatment times. Untiltheearly1990s,however,the methods available to determine implantstability,includingtorque tests, percussion tests and tactile feeling, were subjective, invasive and difficult to communicate. In addition,reversetorquetestshave been criticised, since they can jeopardise the ongoing osseointe- gration process. A breakthrough came with an invention using res- onance frequency analysis to de- terminetheclinicalstatusofaden- talimplantbyProfs.NeilMeredith and Peter Cawley, and the team from Osstell in Sweden. At the 2015 EAO Congress, the company and other leading clinicians from aroundtheworldwillbegathering to discuss the latest findings and developments in osseointegra- tion, including the 25-year an- niversary of assessing osseointe- grationthroughtheimplantstabil- ity quotient (ICQ). Osstell has gathered three dis- tinguished clinicians in the field, Dr Marcus Dagnelid (Sweden) as well as Profs. Daniel Buser (Switzerland) and Peter Moy (USA),todiscussISQdiagnos- tics in a clinical context and the advantages of using ISQ measurements to enhance long-term clinical outcomes. The symposium, held today from 10:00 to 12:00 in Room A2, will also explain how to shorten treatment time and manage patients with risk factors, while reducing the possibility of unnecessary costs related to premature loading. “In daily practice, we never measure the insertion torque since we use Osstell instead to monitor implant stability. For non-splinted implants, we want the second ISQ value to be ≥ 70 to initiate the prosthetic rehabilitation with functional loading. In most im- plant patients, this is either at four or eight weeks of healing al- lowing an early loading protocol,” Prof. Buser stated. Measuredatplacementandbe- fore restoration, the stability de- velopmentofadentalimplantand the degree of osseointegration can be determined in a fully non- invasive and objective way with thehelpofISQanalysis.Theresult is presented as an ISQ value of be- tween 1 and 100. The higher the value, the more stable the im- plant. Backed by more than 700 studies and publications, the pro- prietary ISQ diagnostic method and the corresponding ISQ scale are now considered a global stan- dard. OSSTELL, SWEDEN Booth B40 OSSTELL-SUPPORTED SATELLITE SYMPOSIUM TO FOCUS ON 25 YEARS OF ASSESSING OSSEOINTEGRATION THROUGH ISQ DIAGNOSTICS MIS Implants Technologies re- cently launched the new V3, a multi-use implant suitable for a wide range of surgical scenarios that is part of the company’s V-Concept. “MIS Implants is now a frontrunner of innovation in im- plant dentistry” this was the pow- erful message delivered by MIS at the product launch at EuroPerio8 in London. “The V3 is set to change the fu- turebyofferingunprecedentedbi- ological advancements not previ- ously known in the dental im- plants industry specifically, the significant gain of bone- and soft- tissue volume where it matters most,” said Elad Ginat, Product Manager at MIS Implants Tech- nologies. Hepointedoutthatthisclaimis supported by the placement of over 2,000 V3 implants in clinical cases performed and reported by some of implant dentistry’s most highly respected experts. The cases date back to 2012 and were treated in collaboration with nu- merous well-respected research institutes and universities around the world. “The triangular coronal por- tionoftheV3iscompletelynewin concept,” said Ginat. Its unique shape allows the formation of gaps between the sides of the im- plant and the osteotomy, creating open,compression-freezonesthat immediately fill with blood to form a stable blood clot and accel- erating osseointegration for more rapid bone regeneration, he ex- plained. Thetriangularshapefurtheral- lows secure anchorage at three points and provides doctors with more flexibility in positioning the implant, either facing the flat side buccally or towards an adjacent implant as needed, to gain more bone. It is important to note that a wider V3 implant can be used in clinicalsituationsinwhichatradi- tional circular implant would re- quire a smaller diameter. “It’s all part of the innovative V-Concept,asathree-pointuniver- salapproachtoimplantdentistry,” stated Ginat. The first point is the innovative V3 implant itself that comes with a single-use final drill for an exact osteotomy, shaped to provide optimal primary stability in all bone types. The triangular head of the implant reduces corti- cal bone compression without compromising crestal anchorage. The second point is aesthetics. The extra bone volume affects soft-tissue volume, which is fur- ther enhanced by the tulip- shaped prosthetic components, realising sustainable and healthy results. With more bone and soft tissue to work with from the start, clinicians can attain much higher aesthetic outcomes and reduced healing times. The third point is simplicity, part of the MIS “Make it Simple” philosophy. Doctors can enjoy all theimpressiveV-Conceptbenefits ofgreaterbone-andsoft-tissuevol- ume without learning new proto- cols or procedures. In addition, a dedicated V3 surgical kit makes procedures simple, safe and accu- rate. “The V-Concept is an innova- tion MIS is very proud of, espe- cially since it directly benefits our customers. It helps dental profes- sionals all over the world simplify procedures, improve success rates, reduce chair time and achieve better aesthetic results,” he concluded. MIS IMPLANTS, ISRAEL Booth G15 NEW V-CONCEPT BY MIS DELIVERS TRUE INNOVATION TO IMPLANT DENTISTRY Planmeca offers a complete range of tools for implantology that cover the entire implant plan- ning workflow—from pre-surgical planning to post-operative evalua- tion of the patient. The superior combination of CBCT and virtual prosthetic data creates the best possible basis for implant plan- ningandopenCAD/CAM,thecom- pany said. The advanced 3-D data combinations, realistic implant li- braries and sophisticated dental unit integrated devices are sup- posed to ensure the smooth plan- ningofpatient-specificimplantsin all situations. The Planmeca Romexis soft- ware suite provides patient-spe- cific information on bone density,theshapeofthealve- olus,aswellastheheightand width of the proposed im- plant site. According to the company, this increases the implantsuccessrate,asoper- ations can be planned metic- ulously and implants posi- tioned predictably. The software uses realis- tic implant, abutment and crownmodelsfromitsownli- braries. Users can import and superimpose a soft-tis- sue scan and crown design with CBCT data—providing the perfect environment for implant planning. Crowns can either be or- dered from a dental laboratory or milled on-site with chairside equipment. Planmeca says that Romexis enables fully guided implant placements with superior accu- racy. The software suite provides a wide array of implant planning features, such as an implant align- ment tool, a custom abut- menteditorandanimplant extension option. The safety distances between implants and between an implant and a nerve can also be reliably defined by releasing a warning when the set boundary is breached.
