Editorial: Moving forward with BDIZ EDI in 2023
Christian Berger, President BDIZ EDI
The year 2022 was remarkable in many ways—although, to tell the truth, not always in a positive sense. The various flavours of SARS-CoV-2 were keeping us on our toes. COVID-19 is no longer able to spread terror the way it did in 2020 and 2021, so the worst may actually be behind us, but we are not nearly back where we were before COVID-19; we will have to live with SARS-CoV-2 and its mutants...

“We need more security!” Assembly of the German Dental Association calls for more support for the outpatient sector
The Assembly of the German Dental Association (Bundeszahnärztekammer, BZÄK) congregated in Munich on 4 and 5 November 2022. In his welcoming address, Klaus Holetschek, the Bavarian Minister of State for Health and Care, thanked the dental profession for its continuing commitment, not least during the COVID-19 pandemic. He also referred to the ongoing crises, including the energy crisis and high inflation, which also drove the costs of dental practices.

No headscarf in the workplace? Recent ECJ decision—differences in treatment and freedom to conduct a business
An internal company rule prohibiting the wearing of visible signs of religious, philosophical or political beliefs does not constitute direct discrimination if it is applied in a general and undifferentiated way to all employees. This is the synopsis of the Court of Justice of the European Union (ECJ) judgement dated 13 October 2022.

New crestal bone formation thanks to a microstructured back-taper concept
Prof. Dr Jörg Neugebauer, Dr Steffen Kistler, Dr Ingo Frank, Dr Jacqueline Meier, MDT Siegfried Weiß, Dr Frank Kistler & Prof. Günter Dhom, Germany
Implant design is constantly evolving to optimise success rates and to minimise risks. However, not all new developments provide only extra benefits; some changes to implant systems may also have unfavourable effects. Achieving a long-term stable and risk-free peri-implant hard- and soft-tissue situation must therefore build on different factors in symbiosis, especially in the transitional region from bone to soft tissue.
Use of hyaluronic acid in reconstructive periodontal surgery
Prof. Dr med. dent. Dr h.c. mult. Anton Sculean, MS
Reconstructive periodontal therapy encompasses all treatment methods that facilitate the predictable regeneration of tooth-bearing structures (i.e. the root cementum, the periodontal ligament and the alveolar bone). Recent results from preclinical and clinical studies have indicated that the auxiliary application of hyaluronic acid in periodontal surgery has a beneficial influence on wound healing and promotes the regeneration of periodontal structures. This article briefly summarises the most important findings on the use of hyaluronic acid in reconstructive periodontal surgery.

Severe bone atrophy of the maxilla and mandible—Restoration using minimally invasive techniques
Dr Eduardo Anitua, Spain
Nowadays, dental implants are a highly predictable technique for the restoration of vertical and horizontal bone atrophies, both complex and simple, and for the replacement of single or multiple teeth, whether to support, crowns, bridges or complete den- tures.1–3 Thanks to the advances in the development of implants, versatile solutions can be found to address the various clinical situations that may arise, which can then be managed with great efficiency and with fewer complicated operations and less morbidity.4,5 This means that an increasing number of patients can benefit from this type of treatment, and indeed the number of patients with dental implants continues to grow every day...

Snake technique in the treatment of posterior peri-implant soft-tissue defectsDr Cosmin Dima & Iulia Florea, Romania
Dr Cosmin Dima & Iulia Florea, Romania
Soft-tissue peri-implant defects (papillary loss, decrease of mucosal volume, gingival recession, dehiscence, alteration of the ridge colour) are common complications of implant treatment and affect the final aesthetic result and implant stability in the long term.1, 2 Many factors can influence the onset of peri-implant soft-tissue defects. Facial bone loss and thin biotype promote peri-implant recession,3 and a soft-tissue thickness of less than 2 mm promotes peri-implant marginal bone loss.4, 5 The conse- quences are exposure of the implant and modification of the abutment–crown ratio...

Osstem-Hiossen Meeting in Europe— “Together has no limits”
Today, the digital revolution is rapidly changing dentistry. Prof. Marco Tallarico is dedicated to the latest innovation in digital guided surgery enabling the current dentistry to overcome limitations of the conventional treatments. In the following interview he talks about the latest trends in implantology, research, and his experiences at the Osstem-Hiossen Meeting in Europe.
NSK Finding the right time for implant loading
Today, the trend in implant dentistry is to have a short or no healing period at all before loading the implant. If conditions are not optimal, poor primary stability may increase the risk of implant failure. The Osseo 100 measures implant stability and osseointegration to provide sufficient information to decide when to load an implant. This is particularly important when working with shorter treatment time or managing risk patients.

Your implant choice matters
Dr Dirk U. Duddeck
In 2017, the CleanImplant Foundation, in conjunction with a cohort of world-renowned scientists, published the first consen- sus paper to establish a limit on the amount of particulate or- ganic and metal residue from manufacturing and packaging to define a quality assurance standard of cleanliness for dental implants. Based in Berlin, Germany, this non-profit organisation is dedicated to ensuring implant surfaces are contaminant free, as medical devices in contact with sterile body tissues are con- sidered critical items...
More room for more bone formation—BioHorizons Camlog product report
Branislav Kostadinov
The correct choice of biomaterials is crucial to achieve optimal clinical results—in functional, structural and aesthetic terms. The aim of any tissue regeneration technique, and bone grafting in particular, is to achieve formation of living and reactive tissue. This should be able to regenerate itself such that the mechanical and biological function is maintained sustainably...
Simultaneous implantation and augmentation of a buccal bone defect with biologised bone substitute material
Dr Haki Tekyatan, Germany
In implant dentistry, we need sufficient bone and soft tissue for long-term and prognostically safe stability. This is a good prerequisite for long-term success in order to achieve secure stabil- ity of the implant and the surrounding peri-implant soft tissue. Buccal defects are often found in our practice and are frequently caused by physiological remodelling processes after tooth extraction. These remodelling processes after tooth loss are scien- tifically very well studied and proved. Especially the loss and degradation of the bundle bone results in a wide variety of de- fect morphologies...
The new fixing screw—development for the digital workflow
