New study could help improve healing for dental implants

Wed

New study could help improve healing for dental implantsScientists in Europe have conducted research that could facilitate quicker healing processes for patients with dental implants in future.

A study from the University of Gothenburg and Astra Tech has led to the creation a new method of analysing the topography of titanium dental implants at a nanoscopic scale.

This allows researchers to analyse the way in which the implant is anchored to the bone, as well as giving insight into how this could be enhanced via changes to its smoothness, conductivity and natural oxide coating.

According to the report, this breakthrough could make it easier for new dental implants could be developed that are optimised for increased bone formation and better healing.

Johanna Loberg at the University of Gothenburg's department of chemistry said: "This would reduce the discomfort for patients and makes for a better quality of life during the healing process."

According to a recent Cape May County Herald report, dental implants are becoming more popular as a means of providing a natural-looking replacement for missing teeth.ADNFCR-2621-ID-800591282-ADNFCR

Laser ‘could benefit cosmetic dentistry patients’

Mon

People who are put off cosmetic dentistry procedures because of the drill may be interested to hear about a new laser.

In an article for the Daily Mail, it was noted the Waterlase MD Turbo could be used for a number of treatments.

As well as being proven to kill 99.7 per cent of bacteria in infected teeth, the technology can also trim gums and cure sensitivity in the mouth, the newspaper added.

Patients who require dental implants or root-canal procedures are likely to benefit from the laser, the publication pointed out.

Explaining the technology, it said: "Lasers work by emitting high-speed pulsed light and different frequency lasers will have different effects – some will burn through tissues, for example, while others will kill bacteria."

In other news that may interest cosmetic dentists, Astra Tech has teamed up with Dental Wings.

The former company – a dental implant maker – said the partnership would reduce the time and money needed to create abutments. ADNFCR-2621-ID-19393698-ADNFCR

Dental implant company forms new partnershipA recent business venture may well benefit cosmetic dentists and their patients.

The dental implant maker Astra Tech has announced a strategic alliance with Dental Wings.

Starting early next year, the partnership will allow the latter company to remotely transfer scans to the former’s design and manufacturing centres.

These will then be used to produce Atlantis abutments, which are made for each individual patient.

President and chief executive officer of the Astra Tech Group Peter Selley said the venture would help to increase the profitability and efficiency of dental laboratories.

"This new partnership … is an important step in our continued efforts … to further enhance our customers’ experience with Atlantis abutments, while reducing costs and turnaround times," he asserted.

Established in 1948, Astra Tech develops, manufactures and markets advanced medical devices and dental implants worldwide.

Dental Wings specialises in creating 3D scanners and computer aided design software for the oral health market. ADNFCR-2621-ID-19389106-ADNFCR

Astra Tech launches new shade of dental implant

Thu

Dental implants available in new shadePatients who need teeth implants in London might be interested to hear about a new product.

Astra Tech already offers its Atlantis patient-specific abutments in titanium, gold-shaded titanium and zirconia.

Now it has launched the product in shaded zirconia, which the company asserted would give clinicians "the freedom and flexibility to provide their patients with truly aesthetic results".

The firm also noted this additional option would reduce the need to change the abutment colour through the use of porcelain, meaning the procedure would be more efficient.

Designed from the desired tooth-shape using Atlantis Virtual Abutment Design Software, the product is made from a solid shaded zirconia blank.

In conclusion, Astra Tech stated the tooth replacement would be good for those patients for whom aesthetic results are important.

The company suggests dental implants could be a suitable option for people because they look, feel and function like natural teeth.

It also points out that anchoring the product into the jaw helps promote bone tissue and gum growth, resulting in an attractive result. ADNFCR-2621-ID-19355792-ADNFCR
