In edentulous patients implant-retained fixed prostheses improve mastication and quality of life. Due to resorption and extensive pneumatization of the sinuses a patient had only a minimal posterior maxillary bone height. The implant sites were prepared with a piezoelectric device and a new set of dedicated instruments.
National State Prize for Innovation – Austria's highest national accolade for outstanding performance. W&H was awarded the National State Prize for Innovation by Dr Margarete Schramböck of the Federal Ministry for Digital and Economic Affairs in the category of innovation on 22 March 2018 in the “Aula der Wissenschaften” in Vienna. With the new Primea Advanced Air dental turbine generation, consistent rotation speeds, peak performance approximately 50% higher, shadow-free illumination of the treatment site and less noise when the turbine is running – are now achievable for the first time. Both dentist and patient benefit from this.
You could describe them as everyday heroes: the dentists and dental professionals who, through their dedication, professional skill or simply a friendly smile, manage to transform a dental appointment into a positive event. They do this simply because they care and want to make sure their patients feel comfortable. It is precisely this aspect that will be the focus of W&H’s new image campaign ‘From a patient to a fan’, which will shine a spotlight not on the company itself, but on dentists and their teams. We interviewed Anita Thallinger, W&H Marketing Director, about the background, objectives and challenges of this new advertising campaign.
