EAO 2012 - Corporate Forum

Dr. Roland Glauser (Switzerland) moderated the Nobel Biocare Corporate Forum at EAO, “Designing for Life – Long-term and patient-orientated treatment approaches remain the keys to success.” Dr. Glauser also presented the longest follow-up data for the TiUnite implant surface at EAO with an 11-year publication.
 


EAO 2012 - Corporate Forum

Dr. Bertil Friberg (Sweden) joined Dr. Roland Glauser (Switzerland) on stage to focus on the concepts, materials and long-term outcomes in treatment for different indications and clinical situations. Dr. Friberg emphasized the success that implants with the TiUnite surface have shown in recent publications of data from Dr. Glauser (11-year), Dr. Degidi, et al. (10-year), Dr. Östman, et al. (10-year).
 


EAO 2012 - Corporate Forum

Dr. Egon Euwe (Italy) discussed esthetics and soft tissue health around implants. One highlight presented was utilizing an optimal provisional restoration to help better shape soft tissue. He combined this procedure with the use of an individualized impression coping to maintain the shape already sculpted by the provisional which would then be reflected in the final restoration. Other topics included remaining hard and soft tissue and selection of implant design.


EAO 2012 - Corporate Forum

Mr. Patrick Rutten stressed the importance of communication and proper sequencing of procedures between the laboratory and dentist. He also discussed the effectiveness and efficiency that comes with industrial produced CAD/CAM restorations from NobelProcera, especially in relation to esthetics and soft tissue health. He went on to highlight the safety and strength the material choice of zirconia has achieved over the years for CAD/CAM restorations.


EAO 2012 - Corporate Forum

Dr. Werner Zechner (Austria) outlined the evolution of treatment strategies and related protocols in implant dentistry for edentulous patients. The aim was to focus on the individual needs of the edentulous patient and the selected management rationale for each specific treatment objective.
 
 


EAO 2012 - Corporate Forum

Dr. Peter Moy (USA) talked about the benefits of treatment planning and guided surgery for better patient quality of life. He commented that while guided surgery may take longer or cost a little more, the increased accuracy and predictability is well worth the investment.
 
 


EAO 2012 - Corporate Forum

Dr. Rubén Davó emphasized that treatment options for edentulous patients truly increase quality of life. He focused on the indications that call for zygomatic implants especially for patients with severe bone resorption.
