today Nobel Biocare Global Symposium June 25, 2016

by Dental Tribune International n    Here at the 2016 Nobel Biocare Global Symposium, attendees have the opportunity to step into the future of implant dentistry by taking a guided tour of a digitally enabled practice. Everything is covered—from the waiting room to the surgery theater to the dental laboratory. The tour begins in the consultation area, where a patient’s treatment plan is devel- oped. In a reading area, education materials are presented to the patient, so that he or she can understand the complete process. Next comes the acquisition of data, where a patient’s digital record is taken using the latest and most technologically advanced imaging systems. For the surgery itself, both fully and partially edentulous patients can be treated, and tour participants can view operatories and ask questions of experts about the digital tools. In the laboratory area, participants can learn more about the benefits of the new NobelDesign software. The ultimate goal is to increase the effi- ciency and accuracy of diagnostics, treat- ment planning and guided surgery. In addition to the current technology, potential future innovations designed to in- crease integration, collaboration and effi- ciency are also discussed. Participants see how Nobel Biocare’s leading integrated work- flow can accelerate, combine or even elimi- nate treatment steps. Nobel Biocare is also advancing the restorative workflow in terms of componen- try. An important new addition to Nobel Biocare’s assortment of components is the On1 concept. This innovative modular solu- tion bridges the gap between the surgical and prosthetic workflows. The On1 Base con- nects to the implant at surgery and then re- mains in place throughout the healing pro- cess, prosthetic work and then the lifetime of the restoration. This leaves the soft tissue un- disturbed without compromising on restor- ative flexibility, leaving the biological seal it creates in place for optimized healing. 7 Nobel Biocare Global Symposium 2 news From the President ADVANCING EDENTULOUS SOLUTIONS Since the very beginning, Nobel Biocare has focused on edentulous solutions, helping those who need it most. For over half a century now, this dedication to treating edentulism has remained un- wavering, even in the face of skepticism, criticism and copycat products. There was a time when people doubted the efficacy of the All-on-4 treatment concept. Now, 12 years and hundreds of thousands of patients later, we can be proud that we stayed the course. Be- cause we kept the faith and trusted the feedback from patients, input from clini- cians who shared our goal and, above all, the science, we have made substantial progress toward ending edentulism that would otherwise have been lost. There are now 48 peer-reviewed studies on the All-on-4 treatment concept—all using Nobel Biocare components. Today, those who were our most vocal detractors are now trying to catch up, but we have a significant head start and are already advancing.The next generation of the All-on-4 treatment concept and prod- ucts is already here. With new implant variants and restorative components, we are further improving workflow efficiency gains and ease of use to shorten pros- thetic protocols and procedures signifi- cantly. In addition, our forthcoming Trefoil eden- tulous concept will allow even more patients to benefit from a fixed implant restoration. Developed with some of the world’s leading clinicians, it is a truly innovative full-arch restoration on three implants with a revolutionary prosthetic framework. Feedback from early testers has been excellent, and we are excited to be bringing this new, affordable option to the market soon. With an estimated 3.6 billion people with missing teeth worldwide, edentulism is a global issue; some would even say an epidemic. The aforementioned solutions can help. The treatment of edentulous and soon-to-be edentulous patients is where the potential improvement in quality of life is greatest, and so Nobel Biocare’s focus in this area will remain great as well.  Hans Geiselhöringer Welcome to the fully digital workflow Tour gives global symposium attendees a step-by-step look at the practice of the future More to explore!
