What contribution does cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT) make to planning bone augmentation and implantation? Can a thorough risk analysis substantially reduce the risk of periimplantitis? On which criteria should it depend whether one or two stage bone augmentation is performed? And how can you determine which cases are suitable for immediate implantation?
The high-caliber team of authors - Stephen Chen, Ueli Grunder, George Mandelaris, Stefan Renvert, Michele & Francesca Rossini, as well as Marcus Seiler - explains planning approaches and gives helpful tips for everyday practice work. In addition, in the Journal Club Stephen Wallace and Tiziano Testori present influential studies on "Biomaterials for the sinus lift" and Julio Joly presents his personal side in Monaco.
Our special highlight: In honor of the Geistlich product anniversary - 30 years Geistlich Bio-Oss® and 20 years Geistlich Bio-Gide® - all authors of this edition have added a 30-year-old picture of themselves to their contribution. We would like to express our thanks for this original present and for the many other good wishes we received over the course of the year, of which we print a small selection in the magazine.
