It is times of crisis that show how important it is to stick together. For this reason we want to share our know-how and send “professionals” back to a normal business life all over the world. We want to face the challenges of the Covid-19 pandemic together, provide the best support possible and break new ground. For this purpose we have launched the campaign #dentalsunited.
NIWOP – Part 1: The pre-treatment
NIWOP is a plannable workflow that starts long before implantation and continues beyond the prosthetic restoration. Its goal, aside from actual implant placement, is minimising the incidence of biological complications such as peri-implant mucositis or peri-implantitis. (The pre-treatment as per articles from PD Dr Kristina Bertl, PhD, MBA, MSc)
Ultrasound-activated mechanical biofilm management
Continued maintenance of peri-implant health and the associated, targeted prevention of peri-implant disease are essential to ensuring long-term implant success. The case described here illustrates the possibilities for employing a piezoelectric ultrasonic scaler in the scope of SIT for the efficient cleaning of tooth and implant surfaces.
