Natural Dental Implants (NDI) presented the REPLICATE™ Immediate Tooth Replacement System on the 16th of October at the International Academy of Dental Implantology’s 1st European Scientific Meeting, held at the historic Royal College of Surgeons in London, England. The talk, “REPLICATE Dental Replacement System: A New Horizon for Patients,” was delivered by Dr. John Blythe.

The International Academy of Dental Implantology was formed in 2006 and is dedicated to comprehensive continuing education for dental professionals in the area of Implant Technology through residency programs, cadaver courses, and symposia held all over the world. The IADI’s ultimate goal is to develop skills and knowledge in dental professionals—whether they are general dentists or specialists—in order to provide the best possible care to patients.
The London meeting, the first European scientific meeting organized by the IADI, featured an international roster of speakers from the United States, Sweden, France, and the UK, and was designed to feature the latest developments, innovations, and techniques in implant dentistry. The next European Scientific Meeting of the IADI will take place in Madrid, Spain in 2017.

About the REPLICATE System
The REPLICATE™ System features the REPLICATE™ Tooth, an anatomically-shaped, 100% customized, titanium-zirconia tooth, and the REPLICATE™ Temporary Protective Crown, a customized cover shield designed to protect the REPLICATE Tooth during the healing process. This new approach to immdiate single-tooth replacement offers patients a minimally invasive alternative to traditional dental implants and three-unit bridges.
The REPLICATE Tooth is an anatomical copy of the patient’s natural tooth that fits into the space occupied by the tooth being removed. It is one piece; a super-hydrophilic titanium root fused to a zirconia preparation with an emerging profile similar to that of a natural tooth. Each REPLICATE Tooth component is designed individually and can be modified to overcome anatomical limitations or to meet specific clinical requirements. This unique approach allows general dentists and specialists to immediately replace single and multi-rooted teeth without drilling or altering the adjacent teeth.
The REPLICATE System has been used by a select group of implantologists and surgeons in Germany, Switzerland and the Netherlands since 2013. The Company recently began offering the REPLICATE Immediate Tooth Replacement System in the U.K. To purchase, contact NDI AG, +49.30.526849320, or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
