Biodenta at Dentistry LIVE – new speakers!

Independent Seminars is thrilled to announce that two new speakers will be joining the fantastic line-up of world renowned names at Dentistry LIVE. Holger Zipprich and Urs Brodbeck will present ‘Contemporary Implant Systems: Clinical, biological and mechanical aspects’.

Restorations in the anterior, aesthetic zone present significant challenges in both the surgical and prosthetic phases of implant dentistry. Titanium has been established as the material of choice for endosseous implants resulting in a high degree of predictability. Ceramics may also be used as abutments in implant restorations. This combination of ceramics for abutment and crown should provide better translucency for the implant restoration than is available with metal abutments and porcelain fused to metal crowns. Both will help to fulfil a predictable and consistent concept for successful implant restorations.

The implant-abutment-interface comes more and more in the focus of the present research. The cortical bone-loss, loosening and fractures in implant-abutment-interfaces (IAI) are discussed as consequences of micro-movements. In addition to this, the cortical bone loss is being discussed as one of the consequences. The data presented is indispensable in order to evaluate IAIs, to optimise them and to bring the results in correlation with the clinical results.

This presentation is aimed at surgeons as well as prosthodontists. New information on the implant-abutment-interface and their clinical consequences will be discussed as well as important considerations on the use of all-ceramic abutments.

Dr Brodbeck is the chief dental specialist of Zahnmedizin Zurich Dental Centre. He is specifically dedicated to implant rehabilitation and reconstructive dentistry. He is an internationally-renowned speaker for all-ceramic restorations, implantology and aesthetic dentistry.

Holger Zipprich graduated with a Master of Science in electrical engineering from the technical university of Darmstadt. He has worked on various research projects and has won several scientific achievements awards.
