New On1 Concept in the spotlight at EAO congress

by: Michael Stuart

Integrating new technology with existing practice tools was a key topic at the 2016 EAO Congress in Paris, France, with the new On1 restorative concept in focus.

The On1 restorative concept1 was unveiled at Nobel Biocare’s Global Symposium in June and since then has attracted significant interest. This was again the case at the 2016 European Association Osseointegration (EAO) Congress, held in Paris last week (September 29–October 1).

The unique On1 Base moves the restorative platform of Nobel Biocare conical connection implants from bone level to tissue level. It remains in position from implant placement to finalization, which leaves the soft tissue undisturbed for optimized healing. 

The On1 restorative concept was showcased at the Nobel Biocare booth at the event, together with other innovations including the creos xenogain bovine bone matrix.

One of the experts behind the On1 concept, Dr. Bernard Touati, who is based in Paris, held a one-on-one Q&A session at EAO, answering delegate’s questions on the concept. He then took to the stage during the Nobel Biocare Satellite Symposium to further explore the clinical benefits offered by this new solution.

The symposium was moderated by another Paris-based clinician, Dr. Hadi Antoun. Preceding Dr. Touati on stage was Dr. Bart Vandenberghe from Belgium, who discussed the key considerations when using CBCT scanners for diagnostic imaging.
