A4 I N DUST RY Implant Tribune U.S. Edition | October 2019 Navident 2 streamlines, simplifies workflow with navigation guidance By ClaroNav Staff Similar to the way a GPS system guides a driver, Navident by ClaroNav guides clinicians by using the CBCT image as a map. It offers surgeons an easy-to-use, accurate, highly portable and affordable means of planning restorations and im- plant placements. With Navident 2, clinicians will no lon- ger need to do a special, extra scan. They can use the diagnostic scan already avail- able for the patient. The stress of stent making is also gone because a stent is no longer required, according to ClaroNav. Additionally, Trace and Place (TaP) is a game-changing development for dy- namic navigation, the company asserts. With TaP, ClaroNav users have expressed that the Navident workflow is stream- lined, efficient, user-friendly and seam- lessly integrated into the daily practice. “Trace and Place is a real tipping point for dynamic navigation guidance,” said user Dr. George Mandelaris, a periodon- tist from Chicago. “It has streamlined AD At the AAID Visib ClaroNav ab boobh No. 419. and simplified the workflow in both the diagnostic and surgical phases to al- low state-of-the-art technology to be an everyday component of my surgical im- plant practice. I cannot imagine going back!” Specialists who have used Navident 2.0 said they have experienced negligible operator stress, improved time efficien- cy and an increase in patient acceptance. The accuracy offered by the new version, combined with the need for minimal tissue manipulation, is conducive to a shorter and better recovery process for patients, according to the company. Clinicians are invited to learn about Navident and try it for themselves. Claro- Nav will be an exhibitor at the AAID An- nual Conference in booth No. 419 and the AAP Annual Meeting in booth No. 1117.

A6 I N DUST RY Implant Tribune U.S. Edition | October 2019 Nobel Biocare showcases ceramic implants, 3D-navigation at AAID By Nobel Biocare Staff With X-Guide empowered by DTX Studio Implant, Nobel Biocare is presenting an innovative new treatment option for same-day guided surgery at the 68th American Academy of Implant Dentistry Annual Meeting. The com- pany is also showcasing an alternative to titanium implants with its recently launched NobelPearl ceramic implant system. Ceramic solution A metal-free, two-piece ceramic implant solution with a cement-free internal con- nection, NobelPearl has been designed to support natural soft-tissue appear- ance. Its white zirconia material is espe- cially beneficial in patients with a thin mucosal biotype, Nobel Biocare asserts. Microcirculatory dynamics in peri- implant mucosa around zirconia have AD At the AAID To learn more aboub producbs such as X-Guide, shown ab lefb, and bhe NobelPearl ceramic im- planb sysbem, visib Nobel Biocare ab boobh No. 303. been shown to be comparable to those around natural teeth, and zirconia has also demonstrated low plaque affinity. the features In essence, NobelPearl can help patients gain the natural esthetic excellence they desire, according to the company. NobelPearl innovative VICARBO screw made of carbon-fiber re- inforced polymer. Designed for a strong ceramic-to-ceramic connection, it with- stands tensile forces, while the ceramic absorbs compressive forces. The thread design and tapered implant shape, com- bined with the tapered drill protocol, have been engineered to achieve high primary stability. Furthermore, the hy- drophilic sand-blasted and acid-etched ZERAFIL surface, combined with a par- tially machined collar, is proven to osseo- integrate. 3-D navigation With the X-Guide system, clinicians have a new treatment option for same-day guided available now that DTX Studio Implant empowers this innovative sys- tem for dynamic 3-D navigation. Treat- ment plans from DTX Studio Implant (formerly NobelClinician) can be quickly delivered to the patient, facilitating a workflow for diagnostics, implant plan- ning and navigated implant surgeries, even during emergency interventions where computer-assisted surgeries until now could not be fully applied, according to Nobel. The connection between DTX Stu- dio and X-Guide aims for clinicians to achieve high precision in shorter time- to teeth treatments including screw-re- tained provisionalisation with full three- dimensional control of the implant site preparation and dynamically monitored implant insertion, Nobel asserts. On the day of treatment, the clinician carries out the 3-D (CB)CT scan and intraoral surface scans, creates the treatment plan in DTX Studio Implant and immediately exports it with all the planning compo- nents to X-Guide. X-Guide is manufactured by X-Nav, a North America-based innovator in den- tal 3-D navigation, which has exclusively partnered with Nobel Biocare.

A8 I N DUST RY Implant Tribune U.S. Edition | October 2019 Ceramic implants: An emerging opportunity By ZER AMEX Staff It’s time to take a serious look at mod- ern ceramic implants as a profitable health center for your practice. Like the rapidly growing $50 billion or- ganic market, ceramic implants are here to stay. Not only can ceramic implants help clinicians to improve the health and cosmetics of patients, but they also serve as a practice differentiator – driving prof- itable and loyal patients. According to studies, the market share of ceramic implants is currently 2-3 percent, but it is predicted to represent 24 percent by 2022. For practitioners, this means the time is now to incorporate them into your practice and join what might be the quickest growing market opportunity in dental implantology. Modern ceramic implants have come a long way from the original mono- crystalline alumina implants during Branemark’s days. Now made of Zirconia Oxide(Zr02), they are no longer one piece, smooth or difficult to place or restore. One company leading the evolution and modernization of ceramic implants is ZERAMEX®. ZERAMEX is a Switzerland- based manufacturer of ceramic implants with FDA approval since 2016 and cur- AD rent sales distribution throughout the United States. ZERAMEX XT is a two-piece, screw- retained system that functions surgically and restoratively like current titanium implants, according to the company. The XT system is tapered in design, has an internal connection and the unique VICARBO® screw creates a seal against bacteria and micromovement. The cur- rent product offer has restorative flex- ibility with multiple abutment choices and will soon have scan bodies and a complete digital workflow with fully cus- tomized prosthetics, the company states. With this in mind, modern ceramic im- plants can now offer the same ease of use as current titanium implants, ZERAMEX states. Three reasons to consider adding ce- ramic implants to your armamentarium: 1. Demand for metal-free implants is growing as patients are seeking more natural and biocompatible products and asking their dentists about alternatives to titanium implants. If your practice is close to a Whole Foods market or other organic market, you likely have patients that would appreciate the choice of a non- metal solution. Your practice could be missing these patients as they search for a solution fulfilling their dental desires. 2. Patients have become more educated and demanding. Not only do they want a tooth replacement for functionality, but they are demanding exceptional es- thetics. In thin tissue type and anterior cases, we have all witnessed occasional greying and metal transparency. Ceramic implants are white, often eliminating the need for tissue grafting. Ceramic im- plants should be presented as a solution for all single-tooth cases in the anterior. Patient demand for cosmetic solutions should be a strong consideration in the offerings provided. 3. Ceramic implants are worthy of consideration due to the inherent es- thetic characteristics of zirconia as well as its friendly biological properties. Soft tissue has documented greater affin- ity for ceramic implants over titanium implants. Recent research raises valid concerns about the biological properties of titanium, especially with regards to peri-implantitis. Individuals with spe- cific polymorphisms (SNPs) are at even greater risk both from a dental and sys- temic point of view. At the same time, research on zirconia is quite positive and progressing by leaps and bounds. Ceram- ic implants have documented reduction At the AAID To learn more aboub Zeramex ceramic im- planbs, sbop by boobh No. 612 or visib www.zeramexusa.com/offer. in plaque and bacterial attraction and are not susceptible to corrosion over time. Soft tissue around a zirconia implant is similar to that of soft tissue around natu- ral teeth. As more research becomes available about long-term results, ceramic im- plants will become the preferred choice of many dental implantologists for bio- logical, cosmetic and soft-tissue results.
