Editorial: Dental implantology in times of crisis
Dr Georg Bach
Implantology has been a crucial factor in dental healthcare and continues to be so—even in these challenging times of the coronavirus. Patients in Germany and other countries have been receiving reliable den- tal care over the past months with regard to all oral and surgical matters, which naturally includes implantology...

Delayed immediate implant placement and direct soft-tissue management
Dr Haki Tekyatan, Germany
In the case of implant planning, the preservation of soft tissue and bone is essential for functional and aesthetic long-term success. There are now various different techniques and materials available. The timing of implant insertion and soft-tissue shaping play a crucial role, as do the measures taken in advance of the planned therapy. A targeted strategy can generate favourable conditions before implant placement...
challenging case with limited space
Dr Fernando Rojas-Vizcaya & Jose de San Jose Gonzalez, Spain & Germany
A 40-year-old male patient with a missing mandibular right lateral incisor and grafted area requested restoration with a dental implant. The challenge with this type of restoration is the limited space available and the proximity of the adjacent teeth. The clinical evaluation revealed the limited space (Fig. 1), and the periapical radiograph taken before the treatment showed both the grafted area into the bone and the limited space (Fig. 2). The treatment plan involved conventional implant placement using an OsseoSpeed EV implant (Dentsply Sirona) and immediate provisionalisation using a Temporary Abutment EV (Dentsply Sirona), and for the definitive restoration, an Atlantis Crown Abutment (Dentsply Sirona) was planned to be used to restore the appearance and function of the missing tooth...
Immediate fixed full-arch rehabilitation of periodontitis patients
Prof. João Caramês, Portugal
Untreated edentulism can have a profound impact on a patient’s oral health, general health and well-being by causing functional limitations, and it can lead to socio- psychological impairments, metabolic changes and even a reduced life expectancy.1–4 Implant-supported complete dentures have established themselves as a viable treat-ment modality for edentulism, since they lead to an im-proved quality of life and patient satisfaction and are dis-tinguished by long-term clinical success.5, 6 Among these, implant-supported fixed complete dentures (IFCDs) have demonstrated long‐term implant survival rates of ≥ 95% and ≥ 97% after five years in the maxillary arch and after ten years in the mandibular arch, respectively.7 ...
Graft volumetric changes of collagenated xenograft
Dr Livio Lo Faro, Dr Francesco Giachi Carù & Prof. Tiziano Testori, Italy
Placement of dental implants is an increasingly common approach to the replacement of missing teeth.1 Implant-supported prostheses can be used as an alter-native to traditional bridgework or removable dentures in case of partially and completely edentulous patients. How-ever, the posterior region of the maxilla is usually a chal-lenge for surgeons owing to the bone resorption that oc-curs after tooth extraction.2–3 Moreover, the maxilla mainly consists of spongy bone, which is one of the least dense in the oral cavity.4 To compensate for atrophy and increase the bone volume available for the insertion of implants, various techniques have been developed.5 ...
Dental lasers against peri-implantitis
Dr Bradley Labrecque, Canada
The replacement of lost teeth with dental implants rep-resents a modern approach in restorative dentistry. Among various complications, including bleeding from the implant site, infection, and pain are early signs of prob-lems. Severe complications may result in peri-implant mucositis and peri-implantitis, which are infectious bacterial diseases with inflammatory processes that are similar to gingivitis and periodontitis.1–3 Peri-implant mucositis is de-fined as a reversible inflammatory reaction in the soft tissue surrounding the implant, and peri-implantitis is associated with pathological pocket formation and loss of supporting bone around the implant, resulting in implant failure.1, 2, 4...
Successful rehabilitation of an anterior tooth
Dr Dr Branislav Fatori & Dr Inge Schmitz, Germany
Replacing a tooth in the anterior region with a dental implant is a demanding task. When it comes to aesthetics, it virtually always poses a challenge for the clinician, since his or her primary objective is to preserve the smile line as effectively as possible. Ideally, the transition from implant to crown should not be visible. If there is too little gingiva or if it is thin, there is a risk that the implant and abutment connection will show through the gingiva. To ensure that the colour of the crown does not differ from the colour of the adjacent teeth, close cooperation with a skilled dental technician is always required...
On remaining vigilant
Johannes Liebsch, Germany
The Toulouse-based implant manufacturer TBR Dental has created quite a stir with its Z1 dental implant system with a titanium base and a zirconia collar. In this interview with implants, TBR Dental CEO Julien Benhamou discusses how the company has managed to weather the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, in what productive ways it has utilised this most unusual time and what cus-tomers can expect from TBR Dental in the near future...

Thomas David Driskell passed away on 15 July 2021. During his lifetime, he has helmed the invention of count- less innovative medical devices and products, including the implant system established by the company Bicon, as well as the synthetic bone grafting material SynthoGraft...

Dental implant quality under scrutiny
Dr Dirk U. Duddeck, Germany
"Sterile-packaged” does not mean an implant is neces- sarily free of contaminants. This disturbing realisation is slowly dawning on dentists not only in Europe but also in the US. Exceeding 100,000 subscriptions on CleanImplant’s Facebook page, the number of dentists worldwide intrigued by this revelation increased tenfold over the past two years. For the International Dental Show (IDS) in Cologne in Germany coming up in September, the non-profit CleanImplant Foundation based in Berlin in Germany will once again showcase quality checking of dental implants under a scanning electron microscope (SEM). Installed exclusively for this event in Hall 10.2 in collaboration with Thermo Fisher Scientific and the Medical Materials Research Institute, the set-up will provide full transparency of the foundation’s qual- ity assessments (Fig. 1).
