news wear; however, our study has shown the impact of the way in which acidic food and drinks are consumed,” said lead author of the study Dr Saoirse O’Toole, clinical lecturer in prostho- dontics. She continued that, with the prevalence of erosive tooth wear in- creasing, the preventable aspects, such as reducing dietary acid intake for the purpose of delaying progression of tooth erosion, have to be addressed. The risk from soft drinks, for example, can be halved when such beverages are consumed during meals. In countries like the UK, cur- rently over 30 per cent of adults are estimated to suffer from tooth ero- sion, which can lead to severe loss of enamel and dentine over time. The study, titled “The role of the diet in tooth wear”, was published on- line in the British Dental Journal on 23 February 2018. “It is well known that an acidic diet is associated with erosive tooth Periodontitis-causing bacteria could trigger cancer Researchers in Finland have in- vestigated the role of a bacterium strongly associated with periodonti- tis in the development of oral and cer- tain other cancers. In a second study, they also found a link between perio- dontitis and cancer mortality at the population level. The ﬁ rst study has for the ﬁ rst time proved the existence of a mech- anism at the molecular level through which a bacterium associated with periodontitis, Treponema denticola, took part in this ten-year follow-up study. “These studies have demonstrated for the ﬁ rst time that the virulence factors of the central pathogenic bac- teria underlying gum disease are able to spread from the mouth to other parts of the body, most likely in conjunction with the bacteria, and take part in central mechanisms of tissue destruction related to cancer,” said Prof. Timo Sorsa of the Univer- sity of Helsinki. Diet not solely to blame for tooth erosion Together with dental caries and periodontal disease, dental erosion ranks among the top three most prev- alent dental conditions. According to a review paper by researchers in London, the reason some people suf- fer more from erosive tooth wear than others depends not only on their diet, but also on how they consume acidic beverages and foods. The researchers, from King’s Col- lege London Dental Institute, aimed to identify how different behaviours increased the risk of developing se- vere tooth erosion. Their research drew on a previous study at Guy’s Hospital in London that compared AD AD Booth 11.19B TePe Angle™ Eﬃcient and convenient interdental cleaning the diet of 300 people with severe erosive tooth wear and of 300 people without. The Dental Institute researchers found that those most affected were not those that simply consumed acidic drinks or food, but those who did so between meals. People who drank acidic drinks like soft drinks or fruit-ﬂ avoured teas twice a day were 11 times more likely to have moderate or severe erosion compared with those who did not. Among the groups with high potential for tooth erosion are wine drinkers, long-dis- tance drivers and video gamers, all of whom continually expose their teeth to acidic drinks by swishing or rins- ing the liquid around or holding it in their mouths, the researchers said.

The researchers found that the pri- mary virulence factor of T. denticola, chymotrypsin-like proteinase, occurs also in malignant tumours of the gastrointestinal tract, for example in pancreatic cancer. According to an- other study ﬁ nding, the enzyme has the ability to activate the enzymes that cancer cells use to invade heal- thy tissue. At the same time, the pro- teinase diminished the effectiveness of the immune system by, for exam- ple, inactivating molecules known as enzyme inhibitors. In the second study, it was proved that periodontitis is clearly associ- ated with cancer mortality at the population level. An especially strong link to mortality due to pancreatic cancer was found. Some 70,000 Finns The researchers concluded that low-grade systemic inﬂ ammation re- lated to periodontitis facilitates the spread of oral bacteria and their viru- lence factors to other parts of the body. They pointed out that the prevention and early diagnosis of periodontitis are very important, both for patients’ oral health and their overall well-being.

news Middle-aged tooth loss linked to increased coronary heart disease risk Losinu two or more teeth in mid- dle aue is associated with increased cardiovascular disease risk, accord- inu to preliminary research. The ﬁ nd- inus were presented at the American Heart Association’s 2018 Epidemiolouy and Prevention | Lifestyle and Cardi- ometabolic Health Scientiﬁ c Sessions, a premier ulobal exchanue of the latest advances in population-based cardiovascular science for research- ers and clinicians. In a collaborative research effort between the Tulane University School of Public Health and Tropical Medi- cine in New Orleans and Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health in Boston, US, a team of researchers analysed the impact of tooth loss in two larue studies of adults. In the studies, the participants, aued 45 to 69 years, were asked to report on the numbers of natural teeth they had, then in a follow-up questionnaire, report on any recent cases of tooth loss. The adults in this analysis did not have cardiovascular disease when the studies beuan. The researchers prospectively studied the occurrence of tooth loss durinu an eiuht-year period and followed an incidence of cardiovascular disease amonu peo- ple with no tooth loss, one tooth lost and two or more teeth lost over 12 to 18 years. It was found that, amonu the adults with 25 to 32 natural teeth at the respective study’s start, those who lost two or more teeth had a 23 per cent increased risk of cardio- vascular disease, compared with those with no tooth loss. The in- creased risk occurred reuardless of reported diet quality, physical activ- ity, body weiuht and other cardiovas- cular risk factors, such as hiuh blood pressure, hiuh cholesterol and diabe- tes. There was not a notable increase in cardiovascular disease risk amonu those who reported losinu one tooth durinu the respective study period. Cardiovascular disease risk amonu all the participants (reuardless of the number of natural teeth at the respective study’s start) increased 16 per cent amonu those who lost two or more teeth durinu the respec- tive study period, compared with those who did not lose any teeth. Adults with less than 17 natural teeth, compared with 25 to 32 at the respective study’s start, were 25 per cent more likely to have cardiovas- cular disease. Study author and Professor of Epidemiolouy at Tulane University Dr. Lu Qi added: “Previous research has also found that dental health issues are associated with elevated risk of cardiovascular disease. How- ever, most of that research looked at cumulative tooth loss over a lifetime, which often includes teeth lost in childhood due to cavities, trauma and orthodontics. Tooth loss in mid- dle aue is more likely related to inﬂ ammation, but it hasn’t been clear how this later-in-life tooth loss miuht inﬂ uence cardiovascular dis- ease risk.” “In addition to other established associations between dental health and risk of disease, our ﬁ ndinus suu- uest that middle-aued adults who have lost two or more teeth in the recent past could be at increased risk for cardiovascular disease. That’s reuardless of the number of natural teeth a person has as a middle-aued adult, or whether they have tradi- tional risk factors for cardiovascular disease, such as poor diet or hiuh blood pressure,” Qi said. The ﬁ ndinus have not yet been published as a peer-reviewed paper. The abstract, titled “Chanues in dental health and coronary heart disease risk: Two prospective cohort studies in men and women,” was published in the Circulation journal, 20 March 2018.

We have worked hard to put together a high-quality programme with the latest research in the ﬁ eld An interview with Prof. Søren Jepsen, Scientiﬁ c Chair of EuroPerio9. news This year’s EuroPerio, the world’s leading congress in periodontology and implant dentistry, is expected to attract up to 10,000 periodontists and members of the dental team to learn about the latest in periodontal re- search and clinical practice, in June in Amsterdam in the Netherlands. In this interview, Prof. Søren Jepsen, past President of the European Feder- ation of Periodontology (EFP) and Sci- entiﬁ c Chair of EuroPerio9, outlines the event’s scientiﬁ c programme, which features more than 100 top- level speakers and many innovations. The detailed programme is available at www.efp.org/europerio9/programme/ scientiﬁ c. Why should a dentist or a hygienist consider attending EuroPerio9? Because EuroPerio9 is their op- portunity to obtain the best insight on periodontology and implant den- tistry available in the world until 2021—when EuroPerio10 takes place. EuroPerio9 has gathered the best pool of talented speakers from Eu- rope and around the world for an au- dience that is increasingly global too. We’ll enjoy a great venue in a city as attractive and well-connected as Amsterdam. And then there are the events of the networking programme, the fact that all happens in only four Prof. Søren Jepsen previous separate track for den- tal hygienists. We have added more sessions on the af- ternoon of Wednes- day, 20 June, to take better advan- tage of the time before the ofﬁ cial opening ceremony. We have arranged sessions in such a way that many more dental profes- sionals will be able to present their short oral presentations and posters for discussion. We have included the well-established stars in the specialty and have more women speakers and young speakers than ever before. We have built on the best of our success- ful experiences and we have added a number of new formats. What are those new formats? We have designed eight new for- mats. First, on the opening day, we will have a special double session with the Japanese Society of Perio- dontology, one on bioﬁ lm and anti- infective therapy, the other on regen- erative periodontal and implant ther- apy. Second, the Perio Talks will offer fresh, TED Talk-style presentations given at the ﬁ rst EFP Alumni Sym- posium. Third is a lively debate about the use of antibiotics, led by Profs. Andrea Mombelli and David Herrera, in which attendees will be able to use their smartphones as voting devices. Fourth, for the ﬁ rst time, a live surgery session will take place at a EuroPerio congress. A new, rarely performed proce dure with implants will be carried out by Prof. Giovanni Zucchelli and Dr Mar- tina Stefanini at the Academisch Centrum Tandheel kunde Amsterdam dental school and broadcast in real time. The ﬁ fth major innovation is the interdisciplinary treatment planning session, in which cases will be shown days and the choice between four par- allel tracks of presentations accord- ing to the attendee’s interests. All in all, attending EuroPerio9 is the most enjoyable and cost-effective way to be fully updated on the best in perio- dontology and implant dentistry available today. Will EuroPerio9 be similar to Euro- Perio8 (London, UK, 2015) and Euro- Perio7 (Vienna, Austria, 2012)? It will be deﬁ nitely unique! We have created the Team Session track, which is more inclusive than the and the audience will choose be- tween different options for treatment. Sixth is a 3-D session with Dr Pierpaolo Cortellini and Prof. Stefan Renvert on reconstructive surgery on teeth and implants, in a large audi- torium. Seventh is the EFP Perio Con- test, for which presentations will be judged not only by an expert panel but also by social media voting be- fore the congress. The three ﬁ nal contestants will be invited to pres- ent their work on stage on the last day of the congress. Eighth is the Nightmare Session, in which Drs Mario Roccuzzo, Giulio Rasperini, Jean-Louis Giovannoli and Caroline Fouque will explore treatments that went badly. Being Scientiﬁ c Chair of EuroPerio9 sounds like quite a challenge. How has the experience been? It is, indeed, an incredible chal- lenge, but also an opportunity to work with a wonderful team of perio- dontists and professional organisers. Together, we have worked hard to put together a high-quality programme with the latest research in the ﬁ eld, the best professionals and the new formats I mentioned. I hope that EuroPerio9 will provide attendees with a fruitful and unforgettable ex- perience! “We are now aiming at personalised dentistry” By Dr Monique Danser, Netherlands has increased. There is more aware- ness now of the associations with var- ious systemic diseases, such as diabe- tes, cardiovascular disease, rheumatoid arthritis and obesity. Periodontitis is a multifactorial disease with at least ﬁ ve different do- mains of risk factors that simultane- ously play an important role. These are environmental factors, such as the subgingival bacterial bioﬁ lm; ge- netic risk factors; lifestyle factors; systemic diseases, such diabetes; as well as other lesser known factors that are all tooth-related. The most widely accepted con- cept for a person developing perio- dontitis is that he or she is genetically susceptible and has an aberrant im- mune response and/or tolerance for some Gram-negative bacteria. Thus, a hyperactive inﬂ ammatory process or the lack of resolving capacity cre- ates a favourable ecological niche in which proteolytic bacteria thrive. However, not everyone is equally sus- ceptible to periodontitis. Nowadays, we focus more on the individual life- style habits of the patient instead of just the initial therapy involving or not involving surgery. Although bacteria play a key role in the devel- opment of periodontitis, the severity of the disease is not entirely related to the sum of the duration of the presence or quality of the bacteria and the host. Therefore, we increas- ingly pay attention to nutrition and Monique Danser One of the World Health Organisa- tion’s main goals is to reduce tooth loss (edentulism) and increase the number of people who retain their natural den- tition in later life. Over the past dec- ades, the evidence of oral health play- ing an important role in general health AD Get your free sample TePe Interdental Brush Booth 11.19B L N 5 7 1 1 8 1 D A 04 EuroPerio9 · 20 June 2018 While the percentage of healthy people has grown during the last decade, severe periodontitis has re- mained at almost 10 per cent despite the fact that we have better health- care and screening systems, as well as invest in more prevention. New techniques for the surgical treatment of periodontitis, such as regeneration methods, tooth transplantation and dental implants, are currently in de- velopment. Every year, we encounter more cases of peri-implantitis. A good diag- nosis and indication for tooth replace- ment are therefore essential. Apart from no tooth loss, the ideal situation would be to have a tooth replaced by another natural tooth through stim- ulation of the periodontal ligament with growth factors or even with stem cell transplantation. Similar to the medical ﬁ eld, guidelines are in de- velopment for helping practitioners to treat the patient optimally. A team approach is also essen- tial. As healthcare professionals, we need to offer prevention, lifestyle coaching and dental treatment at the same time in order to have happy pa- tients. This can only be accomplished by a professional team. Nr Monique Nanser is President of the Nederlandse Vereniging voor Parodontologie [Nutch society of perio- dontology] and a member of the Euro- Perio9 organising committee. give dietary advice (e.g. intake of vitamin C, D and ﬂ avonoids), as a healthy lifestyle and thus healthy diet contribute signiﬁ cantly to the treatment process. Although we can- not change the genetics of the patient, we can at least enhance his or her im- mune system by means of probiotics and nutrition, among other things. Most patients suffering from per- iodontitis can be treated successfully and maintain their health. The group that does not respond well to therapy is actually rather small. Neverthe- less, we are working on better diag- nostic tools, such as blood and saliva tests, and collecting big data, with which we can improve our treatment. The number of parameters we can test is growing. We are now aiming at personalised dentistry. As periodontists, we increasingly have to treat cases that are more com- plex. In the future, we hope to better predict and identify patients who are more susceptible to the development of the disease. With all the informa- tion we hope to collect, we should be able to work on a positive outcome of the treatment for each patient and thereby reduce the individual risk of not responding well to therapy.

Are your workﬂows perio-friendly and efﬁcient? An interview with dentist Dr Annika Meyer, Germany. news Ahead of EuroPerio9, the editorial team of CAMLOG Biotechnologies sat together with Dr Annika Meyer to talk about the characteristics of a perio-friendly and efﬁcient workﬂow. Meyer, who studied dentistry at the Humboldt University in Berlin and pre- viously worked in dental edu cation and product man- agement for several interna- tional dental businesses, also touched on implant products manufactured by the Swiss company based in Basel that make these workﬂows possi- ble. Dr Annika Meyer, it seems you are always up to date when it comes to signif- icant trends in implantology regarding clinical research. From your point of view, what can you tell us about the emerging trends in implan- tology? Dr Annika Meyer is a dentist with broad experience in dental practice, education and product management. After her residency at clinics in Berlin and stay at the University of Münster’s periodontology department, she worked in dental education and product management for several international dental companies. AD is coming to BERLIN 28 June –1 July 2018 Berlin, Germany www.ROOTS-SUMMIT.com The Camlog implant system is available with two different machined collar heights and an option for platform- shift for the implants with a 0.4mm machined neck. Dr Annika Meyer: For me, as a scientiﬁcally oriented clinician, ﬂashy claims from implant manufacturers trying to set trends with colourful pictures are not at all interesting. What is important and attractive to me is getting clinical data, clinical results, on the most signiﬁcant developments affecting the treatment outcomes for our patients. Can we see a clinical beneﬁt? If so, under what conditions? Now, faster than ever before, we are able to collect more data from com- pleted clinical trials. This allows us to implement the acquired knowledge for decisive developments in implantology. Why is implementing the acquired knowledge for decisive developments in implantology important? Today, we are even more capable than before of establishing consensus on the beneﬁts of particular work- ﬂows and developments. This gives clinicians the necessary guidelines. So what are the decisive develop- ments of the past that have made implant treatment workﬂows perio- friendly? Developments in CAD/CAM tech- nology are progressing very rapidly. We tend to forget that providing a custom-made abutment with an in- dividual emergence proﬁle was a time-consuming and expensive way to obtain a perio-friendly restoration. Now, perio-friendly structures are easy to achieve with individual abut- ments from DEDICAM. With DEDICAM abutments, an individual emergence proﬁle allows the clinician to deﬁne the optimal position of the cervical margins—be it for aesthetic reasons or for easier removal of excess ce- ment for proper cementation mar- gins. For many of those attending EuroPerio9, the advantages of indi- vidual CAD/CAM abutments are well known. Nowadays, such abutments can be an integral part of the general dentist’s offering without any fur- ther investment—making this process perio-friendly and efﬁcient. The lab designs the individual abutment and the dentist receives page 8 Design of a titanium abutment with modelling of the peri-implant soft tissue and iso-gingival placement of the margin.

The CAMLOG Implant System is available with two different ma- chined collar heights and an option for platform shifting for the im- plants with 0.4 mm machined necks. If one places the implants correctly— the Oral Reconstruction Foundation (formerly the CAMLOG Foundation) provides a consensus report contain- ing guidelines—then one has a clini- cally proven advantage. Is platform shifting an option? Yes, the CAMLOG Implant System with the Promote plus surface (0.4 mm machined surface) does have the op- tion to perform platform shifting. The clinician can decide whether platform shifting is suitable for the speciﬁc clinical situation, offering him or her a certain level of ﬂexibility and the safety of the machined collar. The CONELOG Implant System offers inte- grated platform shifting and surface roughness up to the platform, a con- cept that has also proven to be perio- friendly, as it leads to stable soft-tissue levels and less crestal bone loss. What are the trends regarding efﬁ- ciency? Everything that allows for trans- mucosal healing makes the surgery easier to perform. Randomised clini- cal studies have shown that the disas- sembly and reconnection of the abut- ment might have an inﬂuence on changes in bone level, with a subse- quent negative effect on the soft tis- sue around implants. In several studies, transmucosal and submerged healing were com- pared and no superiority of one or the other healing method was found. Therefore, depending on the indica- tion, several advantages can be seen using transmucosal healing (i.e. it is time-efﬁcient and therefore cost- effective for the surgeon, and it ad- dresses the patients’ desire for less surgery and a shorter treatment time). A good example is the iSy Implant System. As the pre-mounted implant base remains on the implant right from the beginning, one works on abutment level from the start. The implant and superstructure can inte- grate and the soft tissue can stabilise during the healing process. Another factor that drives efﬁ- ciency is a reduced number of in- struments in an implant system. The iSy Implant System has achieved this objective, not only with the lean drill- ing surgical protocol but above all with the use of multifunctional abut- ments. The multifunctional cap can be used intraorally as an impression post, and in the lab, it has the additional function of a scan post. As they like to say at CAMLOG, “digital dentistry made iSy”. It’s designed as a system to optimise access to individualised CAD/CAM restoration. The clinician can choose to work chairside or with a lab or use an external CAD/CAM service provider.

“From a patient to a fan” An interview with W&H Marketing Director Anita Thallinger about the company’s new image campaign. news their teams. In this interview, W&H Marketing Director Anita Thallinger talks about the background, objec- tives and challenges ox the company’s new advertising campaign. In February, the new W&H image campaign was launched in dental markets worldwide. What objectives were set for the new campaign? Anita Thallinger: One ox the ob- jectives ox the new campaign, ox course, is to draw the attention ox the world ox dentistry to W&H and to dis- tinguish the company xrom the com- petition. Moreover, we want to show dentists and their practice teams that W&H is there xor them as a solutions provider and does its utmost to sup- port them in overcoming their day- to-day challenges. W&H’s new image campaign does not focus on the company itself, but on dentists and their teams. Why did you choose this approach? We want our customers to know that W&H values their work, dedica- Dr X. Pert. Dr X. Pert. One could describe them as every- day heroes: the dentists and dental proxessionals who, through their ded- ication, proxessional skill or simply a xriendly smile, manage to transxorm dental appointments into positive experiences xor their patients. They do this simply because they care and want to ensure their patients xeel comxortable. This is precisely the xo- cus ox W&H’s new image campaign, “From a patient to a xan”, which aims to put the spotlight on dentists and AD W&H Marketing Director Anita Thallinger (right) talking to W&H Corporate Communication Manager Susanne Kreuzhuber about the background, objectives and challenges ox the new image campaign. tion and skills. As a manuxacturer ox innovative dental solutions, it is our aim to provide users with products that oxxer added value. As practice teams need to give patients their un- divided attention throughout the en- tire treatment process, W&H sees its primary task as being to optimise and xacilitate the workﬂ ow. Our innova- tive products are not only high in quality, but also intuitive, reliable and above all precise in their xunc- tioning. Our goal is to support den- tists and their teams and oxxer them products that meet these require- ments. The new campaign features smiling dentists and patients. What makes your current campaign different from that of your competitors? At ﬁ rst glance, the new image campaign seems to take a very tradi- tional approach compared with our previous campaign. However, W&H is known xor its slightly tongue-in-cheek advertisements. This is evident in the current campaign xrom the names given to the dentists in the ads. Ix someone is exceptionally good at something, or becomes synony- mous with something, he or she be- comes the epitome ox it, thereby gaining xans. W&H has applied this approach in the new campaign. In the eyes ox patients, the dentists pic- tured in the advertisements become Dr Phil Good, Dr X. Pert, Dr I. Novativ, Dr S. Mile, Dr I. Trust or Dr Sue Perstar, and thus become the living embodi- ment ox trust, well-being, expertise, happiness and innovative spirit. Instead of using models, you put W&H employees at centre stage for the campaign. Why did you opt for this approach, and how did your col- leagues feel about the photo shoot? At W&H, the concept ox together- ness plays an important role. Our employees are in contact with at least one area ox dentistry every day. They enjoyed the change ox perspec- tive and putting themselves in our customers’ shoes. For the photo shoot itselx, we were able to ﬁ nd three den- tists in Salzburg in Austria who ox- xered their modern xacilities as sets. The dentists and their assistants were also on hand to oxxer advice during production; that is why the images look authentic. I think the xun that all the participants had in the process is evident xrom the emotion in the photos. Have you already received some ini- tial feedback on the image campaign from your customers and partners? What has the response been? We carried out a survey involv- ing around 100 dentists during the development phase. The concept in itselx, the idea with the names and many other aspects were put to the test and received excellent xeedback across the board. So, we are looking xorward to an exciting year. Thank you very much for taking the time to answer our questions. Dental Tribune International ESSENTIAL DENTAL MEDIA www.dental-tribune.com With its new image campaign W&H places dentists and dental proxessionals in xocus.

TOWARDS A HEALTHY MOUTH WITH [BE YOU.] Mosg of us know ghag proper brush- ing wigh googhpasge congaining ﬂ uo- ride is ghe ﬁ rsg sgep in maingaining healghy geegh and gums. Despige ghis, bioﬁ lm-relaged oral infecgions such as dengal caries and periodongigis are sgill among ghe mosg prevaleng healgh problems. Recengly, ingeresg has been growing around anogher facgor ghag helps preveng ghese diseases: en- zymes ghag occur nagurally in saliva and perform an ingegral role in pro- gecging and repairing ghe oral cavigy. By using glucose oxidase for healghy oral ﬂ ora, CURAPROX’s new googh- pasge series helps maingain opgimal oral balance. In order go undersgand ghe healgh beneﬁ gs of enzymes on our oral ﬂ ora, ig is imporgang go undersgand bio- ﬁ lm—ghe benign layer of bacgeria, fungi and progozoa aggached go each ogher as well as go our geegh and oral mucosa. Ideally, ghe differeng bacge- ria ghag make up bioﬁ lm are in a sgage of balance called symbiosis. However, fermengable sugars, smoking, sgress, physiological changes like pregnan cy, or ghe frequeng use of angibiogics and angimicrobials can creage an imbal- ance in ghe oral microbiome where paghogenic bacgeria predominage. Lefg ungreaged, ghis dysbiosis can lead go diseases such as caries, gingivigis and periodongigis. A 2016 sgudy by Pleszczy´nska eg al. published on ghe Ingernagional Union of Biochemisgry and Molecular Biology websige explores ghe possi- biligies for enzymes go greag and pre- veng oral disease. Oxidagive salivary enzymes were found go inhibig ghe growgh of cariogenic oral paghogens. [BE YOU.] congains glucose oxidase, a business nagurally occurring enzyme ghag in- hibigs dysbiosis by boosging salivary ﬂ ow, and gurns glucose ingo hydrogen peroxide, which gengly whigens ghe geegh. “Hydrogen peroxide and ghe Pogassium ghiocyanage in ghe googh- pasge supporg ghe lacgoperoxidase nagurally preseng in ghe mough,” said Dr Chrisgoph Fiolka, head of chemical producg managemeng ag Curaden. “Lacgoperoxidase ghen in gurn forms a pogeng nagural angibacgerial sysgem.

Planmeca Oy, Finland www.planmeca.com Booth 11.16 A A growing grend in ghe dengal im- plang markeg is pagiengs’ preference for megal-free solugions, desiring ghe look and feel of nagural geegh. To meeg ghis need, Nobel Biocare has harnessed ghe evolugion of ceramic implang solugions wigh NobelPearl, which is unveiled ag EuroPerio9. According go ghe Swigzerland- based implang manufacgurer, Nobel Pearl is a complegely megal-free algernagive go giganium and highly compagible wigh sofg gissue. The gwo-piece ce- ramic implang solugion wigh a ce- meng-free ingernal connecgion has been designed go supporg a nagural sofg-gissue appearance. Igs zirconia magerial is especially beneﬁ cial in pagiengs wigh a ghin gingival biogype. Microcirculagion in peri-implang mu- cosa around zirconia has been shown go be comparable go ghag around nagural geegh, and zirconia has also demonsgraged low plaque afﬁ nigy. In essence, NobelPearl can help pagiengs gain ghe nagural aes- ghegic ghey desire. Clinicians seeking a ceramic solugion for gheir pagiengs mighg see cemeng as ghe only possibiligy for resgoragion regengion. While ingra- oral cemengagion can be a viable op- gion, excess cemeng is known go be associaged wigh sofg-gissue inﬂ amma- gion and ghe developmeng of peri- implang mucosigis and peri-implangigis. To avoid ghis risk ghrough screw regengion, NobelPearl feagures ghe VICARBO screw made of carbon ﬁ - bre-reinforced polymer. In addigion, NobelPearl offers greager resgoragive ﬂ exibiligy compared wigh one-piece or cemenged ceramic implangs, owing go ghe gwo-piece, reversible, cemeng- free ingernal connecgion. Designed for a sgrong ceramic- go- ceramic connecgion, ghe VICARBO screw wighsgands gensile forces, while ghe ceramic absorbs compres- sive forces. This ceramic magerial— alumina-goughened zirconia—provides sgrenggh for a successful greagmeng, according go Nobel Biocare. The ghread design and gapered implang shape, combined wigh ghe gapered- drill progocol, have been engineered go achieve high sgabiligy. Addigion- ally, ghe hydrophilic sandblasged and acid-egched ZERAFIL surface, combined wigh a pargially machined collar, faciligages osseoingegragion, ghe company said. The conginuous developmeng of ceramic implangs has seen a sus- gained increase in survival rage. Now, NobelPearl is a new greagmeng opgion ghag follows esgablished work- ﬂ ows for gwo-piece implangs and will be ingegraged ingo Nobel Biocare’s digigal workﬂ ow. Clinicians seeking a successful sgarg in ceramic implan- gology and go expand gheir offering can gain peace of mind wigh an easy- go-adopg solugion.

Planmeca Emerald has been designed wigh effecgive usabil- igy in mind and provides accuracy and speed in all siguagions, ghe Finn- ish company said. Planmeca Emerald’s seamless, augoclavable and exchangeable gips make infecgion congrol measures sim- ple and efﬁ cieng. The scanner’s gwo buggons allow ig go be operaged wigh- oug gouching a mouse or keyboard, and ig can even be congrolled from a foog pedal when connecged go a den- gal unig. The scanner’s plug-and-play capabiligy allows ig go be efforglessly shared begween differeng rooms and lapgops. Owing go igs small size and lighg weighg, ghe scanner provides su- perior congrol and is comforgable for pagiengs, ghe company said.

business SHARPEN-FREE PROPHYLAXIS WITH LM-DENTAL’S SHARP DIAMOND Sharp Diamond instruments are completely sharpen-free. Razor-sharp, extremely hard, yet smooth and light, they offer beneﬁ ts for both the dental professional and the patient, accord- ing to Finland-based manufacturer LM-Dental. The instruments are made from a durable metal alloy, and their wear resistance is enhanced by a mi- cro-membrane coating, produced with physical vapor deposition technology. Sharp Diamond instruments with their ergonomically designed LM-ErgoSense handles offer controlled grip and comfort. They are especially suitable for clinicians who use hand instruments frequently and want to minimise the time spent maintaining them. Gracey curettes, universal cu- rettes and scalers are available in the sharpen-free Sharp Diamond instru- ment range. The new sickle scaler LM-Sharp- Jack features extra-long and thin blade for convenient interproximal access, presenting the most popular scaler de- sign in the US. The shank is optimally angled to universally adapt in ante- rior and posterior regions. Also, the LM-SharpJack is very narrow. It there- fore allows access to the smallest ar- eas, and with its long tip, the clinician can even reach in between molars. LM-Dental is promoting the launch of LM-SharpJack with a charity cam- paign. In recognition of the associa- tion between poor dental health and Alzheimer’s disease, LM is seeking to raise awareness of the condi- tion by donating funds from every LM-SharpJack sold to Alzheimer’s re- search. More information about the campaign can be found on its web- site. LM-Dental, Finland www.lm-dental.com Booth 11.03A AD ATRAUMATIC ULTRASONIC BONE SURGERIES The innovative ultrasonic Piezo- tome CUBE surgical device from ACTEON aims to make dental surger- ies safer and more predictable. By improving the experience of bone surgery procedures, the device rep- resents a new approach to minimally invasive surgery. This is particularly relevant for extractions, for which the use of predictable and safe tech- nology is essential to achieve supe- rior results for every patient. During extractions, it is some- times difﬁ cult to preserve the alveo- lar bone, particularly when rotary in- struments are used. This technique often leads to sacriﬁ cing of the alve- olar bone in order to remove the tooth or tooth fragments. Piezotome CUBE offers an alternative tool for extractions. Tips that have been designed speciﬁ cally for this procedure are very thin, al- lowing the practitioner to precisely insert the tip to sepa- rate the root from the bone by gently cut- ting the perio- dontal ﬁ bres, thus allowing for im- mediate implant placement by keep- ing the bone structure intact. “Atraumatic extraction and im- mediate implant placement is be- coming the norm in today’s implant surgery and is more acceptable for the patient,” said Dr Diyari Abdah, who will be giving a presentation with Dr Nares at EuroPerio9 on 21 June, 12:30 to 14:00, in the Plena ry Hall. Their paper will focus on less inva- sive surgery and shorter treatment pro tocols for better patient accept- ance and will also cover atraumatic extraction for immediate implanta- tion through bone preservation. Treatments performed with Piezo- tome exhibit far more advantages compared with traditional instru- mentation, according to ACTEON. In this regard, Drs France Lambert and Carole Charavet will be presenting the Piezocision technique, a ﬂ apless treatment for accelerated orthodon- tic surgery in the second part of the session.

SIGNIFICANCE OF TECHNOLOGY IN ORAL HEALTHCARE Given the rise in popularity of health apps, it is apparent that peo- ple are seeking more information on and are increasingly interested in tracking their health and wellness. Smartphones have become personal trainers, dieticians and statisticians, kept safely in everyone’s pockets. This trend is also inﬂ uencing the dental industry, which launches new products regularly. Oral care com- pany Philips believes that research and testing are key to developing meaningful innovations and to help- ing dental professionals understand their patients’ needs. But how is everyday technology relevant to oral healthcare? It was discovered that people had a limited understanding of how well they were looking after their mouth, teeth and gums in between visits to their dentist. Using this insight, Philips Oral Healthcare launched its Diamond Clean Smart to help dental professionals and patients to achieve improved results in oral care, includ- ing plaque control, gingival health and whitening. Philips developed the proposition over 18 months of re- search with more than 1,000 dentists and hygienists and more than 3,000 consumers around the world.* The DiamondClean Smart helps eliminate any guesswork and guides the user to improve his or her clean- ing technique through an intuitive brushing experience and new high- performance brush heads. Together, all the features aim to provide the patient with conﬁ dence in achieving a complete clean every time. The new DiamondClean Smart connects to the Philips Sonicare app, AD business giving patients personalised feed- back and coaching that can be shared with their dentists. Smart sensors built into the handle track location, scrubbing and pressure. The app and toothbrush handle syn- chronise via Bluetooth. Using the TouchUp and focus features, this allows patients to track brushing habits and identify trouble spots to help them achieve complete cover- age for a truly tailored clean. * In fact, 95 per cent of surveyed users agreed that it is the most effective product they have used for developing healthy brushing habits. Philips, Netherlands www.philips.com Booth 10.15 COLGATE RELEASES 2017 SUSTAINABILITY REPORT As part of its commitment to sus- tainable and environmentally friendly business, Colgate-Palmolive has re- cently set a new goal of 100 per cent recyclability of plastics in packaging across all its product categories by 2025.

business PROBIOTICS PROVIDE VALUABLE BENEFITS AS ADJUVANTS TO SCALING AND ROOT PLANING Periodontal disease is a widespread condi- tion that affects a signiﬁ cant por- tion of the adult population in Europe. Studies have shown that four adults have gingival health concerns, including three out of periodontal disease, during their lifetimes. A growing body of ev- idence indicates that periodon- tal disease in its most severe form may not only cause tissue destruction in the oral cavity and lead to tooth loss, but also be a risk factor for challenging systemic conditions, such as diabetes, coronary artery dis- ease and pulmonary disease.

New treatment options in the form of advanced probiotics—adminis- tered as adjuvants to scaling and root planing—are now available to improve the long-term outcomes of chronic periodontal disease manage- ment. Scaling and root planing is the treatment of choice for chronic periodontitis. One of the impor- tant challenges professionals face after scaling and root planing is the frequent recolonisation of the treated niches by pathogenic bac- teria, even when combined with antibiotics. By supplementing scaling and root planing with a probiotic treat- ment, dental professionals can hin- der this recolonisation of the oral cavity and give their patients the beneﬁ ts of the antimicrobial and anti- inﬂ ammatory properties of oral probiotics. Lactobacillus reuteri Prodentis is an advanced probiotic bacterium of human origin, adapted to reside in the oral cavity and able to bind to saliva and oral mucosa. It is com- posed of two patented strains of lac- tic acid with two complementary modes of action. Together, the two strains have been clinically proven to delay the recolonisation of pathogenic bacte- ria in cavities treated by scaling and root planing, provide anti-inﬂ amma- tory and antimicrobial properties, strengthen and enhance the host im- mune response via CD4+ T helper cells and immunoglobulin A produc- tion, and reinforce the natural de- fences of the mouth. When used as an adjuvant to scaling and root planing for the treatment of chronic periodontitis, Lactobacillus reuteri Prodentis has been clinically proven to signiﬁ - cantly improve critical clinical pa- rameters, reducing the plaque in- dex, the gingival index, bleeding on probing and probing pocket depth, and increasing clinical attachment levels in deep pockets. Lactobacillus reuteri Prodentis has also been shown to reduce the risk of periodontal disease pro- gression, the number of sites need- ing surgery, and the amount of periodontal pathogens, and to de- liver long-lasting clinical improve- ment in cases of chronic periodon- titis.
