Implant design and surface quality are critical factors for successful, long-term clinical results. At an industry satellite symposium sponsored by Nobel Biocare and held during the Annual Scientific Congress of the European Association for Osseointegration in Vienna, internationally renowned clinicians will be discussing whether innovation in surfaces is possible and where it will lead future developments in the field.

Moderated by Austrian implant specialist Professor Gabor Tepper, Professor Ann Wennerberg from Sweden and Dr. Peter Schüpbach from Switzerland will address unmet needs in surface technology and demonstrate how new innovations could help to enhance soft and hard tissue integration. The two-hour event will further provide congress delegates with expert perspectives on the scientific foundations of long-term outcomes.

Industry symposium

Dr. Tristan Staas from the Netherlands, for example, will give insights into how he has achieved success using the NobelActive implant system with immediate protocols over the last 10 years. Professor France Lambert from Belgium will explain how advanced guided bone regeneration (GBR) materials and treatment protocols will stretch the boundaries of GBR in the future, while Dr. Markus Schlee from Germany will discuss the GalvoSurge system*, a possible new solution for implant cleaning.

Nobel Biocare’s satellite symposium will take place on Friday, 12 October, from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. in room Graz at the Messe Vienna Exhibition Centre. While attendance is free with the registration, places are not guaranteed, so delegates are invited to come early and secure their seat.

Congress booth

In room Schubert 4, attendees interested in developing their practice can take part in several hands-on sessions and receive practical tips for immediate implant placement, among other things. In addition to this Friday morning session headed by Prof. Tepper, Prof. Paulo Malo from Portugal will also introduce and show attendees how to grow their business with products from the NobelPro Line. As hands-on activities and demonstrations are extremely popular, space is limited for these events. Delegates are therefore invited to choose their sessions and reserve their seats today.

Hospitality suite

Held at the Nobel Biocare booth, clinical lectures focusing on solutions like the On1 concept and the new creos mucogain collagen matrix will be available for visitors to attend throughout Thursday and Friday. In addition to these activities, they will be able to explore the company’s extensive product portfolio, which includes the Trefoil system and All-on-4® treatment concept, as well as the creos regenerative product line and the recently launched NobelPearl ceramic implant system. Solutions for a more integrated digital workflow including the DTX Studio suite, NobelClinician software and the recently added X-Guide dynamic navigation guidance system will also be on display. Nobel Biocare sales representatives will be on-site to answer any questions delegates may have.
