Medical Modeling Receives FDA 510(k) Clearance for VSP(R) (Virtual Surgical Planning) System

Medical Modeling Receives FDA 510(k) Clearance for VSP(R) (Virtual Surgical Planning) System | Dental Implant and Bone Regeneration | Scoop.it

 

sVirtual Surgical Planning technology allows for planning maxillofacial surgical procedures in a virtual environment and transferring that plan to the patient using innovative models, templates and surgical guides

 

Initial applications of the company’s VSP® System technology include products such as VSP® Orthognathics – Applying virtual surgical planning and CAD/CAM surgical splints to the area of orthognathic surgery, and VSP® Reconstruction– Applying virtual surgical planning to the reconstruction of the mandible or maxilla using vascularized grafts from other areas of the body.

Compressible human cancellous bone

Compressible human cancellous bone | Dental Implant and Bone Regeneration | Scoop.it

100% human cancellous bone that has been demineralized to provide a value-added benefit over other allografts. The demineralization process assists with two functions: 1) it makes the product compressible so it is ideal for surgeons to obtain a press-fit, precise placement of the graft; and 2) it exposes the native growth factors and bone morphogenic proteins that are essential to induce new bone formation

Effect of β-tricalcium phosphate coated with zoledronic acid on human osteoblasts and human osteoclasts in vitro

Alessandro Dentoni's insight:

The combination of a bone graft material with bisphosphonates (BPs) might be advantageous for an optimal balance of material resorption and stimulation of bone formation.

New dental implant concept from an italian spin off

New dental implant concept from an italian spin off | Dental Implant and Bone Regeneration | Scoop.it
Twocare S.r.l. is a University of Turin-CNR (National Research Council) spin-off that produces proprietary oxide-based dental implants and provides customized services to the clinicians.

The core expertise of Twocare S.r.l. in innovative implant bulk materials is due to the presence of academic and academic-trained researchers (PhD graduated) among its employees as well as to the strong relationships with prominent Research Centres of the field (ISTEC-CNR, the Molecular Biotechnology Center and the Dental School of the University of Turin).

Advanced CAD/CAM systems are used to design and produce the different dental implants and an independent quality control system ensures the highest reliability of the products.

The effect of load on heat production, thermal effects and expenditure of time during implant site preparation – an experimental ex vivo comparison between piezosurgery and conventional drilling

The effect of load on heat production, thermal effects and expenditure of time during implant site preparation – an experimental ex vivo comparison between piezosurgery and conventional drilling | Dental Implant and Bone Regeneration | Scoop.it

PS yields significantly higher temperatures and thermal tissue alterations on load levels higher than 500 g and is significantly slower for ISP compared to SB and TB. For ISP with PS, a maximum load of 400 g should be maintained.

Can wood replace damaged bones? | Dental Implant and Bone Regeneration | Scoop.it

Researchers from the National Research Council of Italy (CNR) writing in a forthcoming issue of the International Journal of Healthcare Technology and Management suggest that it can. It turns out that the structure of some woods at the microscopic level is very close to that of natural bone; both have unique biomechanical properties such as high strength and lightness
