Editorial: Dental implantology—the “third” chance for patients
Dr Rolf Vollmer
Implantology together with oral surgery belong to the few disciplines of dentistry that take on the presumably hopeless cases. Almost hopeless refers to those patients with insufficient oral health owing to their own neglect or serious illnesses. The impairments on the daily quality of life resulting from unfixed prosthetics, insufficiently treated gaps and general functional insufficiency are causes of health issues and also an excessive psychosocial burden for many patients. Dentists dedicated to implantology are, in fact, one of the last instances that can provide help in such cases....

L-PRF in different intraoral applications
Prof. Nelson R. Pinto1, Dr Andy Temmerman2, Ana B. Castro2, Simone Cortellini2, Prof. Dr Wim Teughels2 & Prof. Dr Marc Quirynen21 Department of Periodontology and Oral Implantology, Faculty of Dentistry, Universidad de Los Andes, Santiago, Chile2 Departme
Recent research clearly indicates that wound healing in both soft and hard tissue can be significantly enhanced by L-PRF (leukocyte- and platelet-rich fibrin). This second generation of platelet concentrates may even have the potential to replace substitutes like growth factors and biomaterials in many situations. A further benefit is its easy and inexpensive preparation, lowering the treatment cost also for the patient...

Fixed complete prosthesis with no screws and no cement
Dr Karl-Ludwig Ackermann, Gerhard Neuendorff & Janez Fiderschek, Germany
The fifth German oral health study (Deutsche Mundgesundheitsstudie) showed that the population in many countries are ageing and the desire for better quality of life related to the preservation of teeth and their functionality, among other things is constantly increasing. Periodontal disease is a major cause of tooth loss, as tooth loss results in a decreased ability to maintain physiological masticatory function, as well as a decreased general quality of life. Edentulous people exhibit a lower selfesteem by being excluded from normal masticatory function...

Biomechanical considerations in solving demanding cases
Dr Juraj Brozovi´c & Barbara Mikuli´c, Croatia
The predictability of dental implant osseointegration has enabled clinicians and researchers to focus on addi - tional success criteria in the overall treatment. 1 Initial assessments of implant therapy considered survival rates, restoration stability, detectable bone loss and presence of soft-tissue infection. 1, 2 As implant dentistry advanced, it was necessary to introduce new assessment points in order to broaden the understanding of favourable outcomes and pending failures. These included aesthetics, evaluated by both patients subjectively and clinicians objectively. A more patient-centred approach has led to a better insight into patient satisfaction, which was often overlooked in the past...

Guided bone regeneration in smokers
Dr Dr Branislav Fatori & Dr Inge Schmitz, Germany
Bone grafts are used as a filler and scaffold to facilitate bone formation and promote wound healing if necessary. Bone grafting is possible because bone tissue has the ability to regenerate completely if the space into which it has to grow is provided...

Implant digital workflow opportunities
Dr Ross Cutts, UK
Whether we like it or not we are embracing the dig- ital era in our brave new world. Many dental practices are now becoming paper free—a digital innovation—and even using tablet computers to record patient details and medical histories. We are continually surprised by the rising age of the technologically savvy patient, particularly those of a certain generation that perhaps we assume to be less “digital” than the perceived smartphone generation. This change in patient demographic and attitude towards technology is filtering through to us in the dental profession...

Dynamic navigation by innovative registration
Dr Ricardo Henriques, Portugal
3-D implant planning and mapping that plan to the real surgical environment are two important steps in implant rehabilitation. 1, 2 Misplaced implants can create difficult aesthetics, functional and biological problems and can result in implant loss. 3–5...

Bone loss around tapered implants with split coronal microthreads
Drs Jerry Kohen, Tal Bar, Sorin Moscovici & Prof. Ofer Moses, Israel
Dental implants are frequently used for the treatment of edentulism. However, marginal bone loss around implants during the first years after implantation varies between implant systems demanding an evaluation of implant performance over time.
