Using the CBCT image as a map, Navident guides dentists just like a GPS guides drivers. The dental surgeon plans where implants should be placed in the image. Navident, constantly tracking the drill and the patient's jaw, provides clear drilling guidance and visual feedback to ensure the implants are placed according to plan.

Within the limits of the current study, aECM coatings containing low sulfated hyaluronan increase peri-implant bone formation around dental implants in maxillary bone compared to controls in the early healing period.
This is really neat. Any way that we can find to speed up the healing process for dental implants is always exciting. Dental implants are already the closest thing to natural teeth, so if we can make them integrate the bone faster, that'd make them even better.
This long-term study, spreading over a period of up to 20 years, indicates that no sinus complication was observed following implant penetration into the maxillary sinus. Furthermore, absence of occurrence of such complications is related to the maintenance of successful osseointegration. A contrario, and in the presence of an acute or chronic maxillary sinusitis, the differential diagnosis must always consider other potential odontogenic and nonodontogenic etiologies
Stem cells may be used to replace teeth within the decade, the dean of a school of dentistry said.

Conclusion: This meta-analysis showed that narrower implants (< 3.3mm) had significantly lower survival rates compared to wider implants (≥ 3.3mm). Other variables such as type of prosthesis, implants surface and timing of prosthetic loading, were found to have influenced the implant survival rates.
A team led by McGill University’s Dr Michael H Weber, and Professor Jake Barralet, are developing a new technology with a 3D printer which seeks to create replicas of bone for spinal grafts..
Bone Therapeutics receives clearance for ALLOB® phase I/IIa trial
BONE THERAPEUTICS, the leading biopharmaceutical company focused on innovative cell therapy products for the treatment of bone diseases, announces today that it has received clearance from the Competent Authorities in Belgium and the UK for a phase I/IIa trial with its allogeneic cell therapy product ALLOB® for the treatment of delayed union fractures. ALLOB® is an allogeneic , osteoblastic (i.e. bone-forming) cell therapy product. ALLOB® has already shown safety and efficacy in preclinical studies and has the potential to become a first-line treatment for impaired fracture healing, thanks to its minimally invasive percutaneous administration, avoiding the need for surgery.

Straumann is also launching a new short implant, which is just 4 mm in length – making it the company’s smallest implant. This implant has been evaluated for more than 5 years in a clinical trial3 and has shown excellent performance. Designed to avoid extensive augmentation procedures in patients with insufficient vertical bone for conventional implants, the new implant is available in Europe, Australia and New Zealand, in a soft tissue level design and in 4.1 mm and 4.8 mm diameters.

We developed a novel titanium coating that has applications for preventing infection-related implant failures in dentistry and orthopedics. The coating incorporates an antimicrobial peptide, GL13K, derived from parotid secretory protein, which has been previously shown to be bactericidal and bacteriostatic in solution.

Straumann today announced two important acquisition agreements that will advance its strategy to become a global leader in the ‘value’ segment of the tooth-replacement market. The Group’s first step outside the premium segment, which it leads, was taken last year when it acquired 49% of Neodent, the market leader in implant dentistry in Brazil.
Straumann disclosed that it has signed an agreement to purchase 51% of Medentika GmbH and 51% of Medentika Implant GmbH (collectively referred to as 'Medentika') for a total agreed price of 32 million Euro.

Researchers at Ohio State University have developed a nanotech coating that they say can help bone and tissue better adhere to artificial joints.
The new material is composed of thousands of titanium wires, each only a fraction of the width of a human hair, and could coat artificial joints and other materials used in orthopedic surgeries.
