On February 10th – 15th, Natural Dental Implants AG will attend the International Symposium in St. Anton, Switzerland, a premier dental educational event for oral and maxillofacial Surgeons, oral surgeons, dentists and orthodontists and sponsor a three-hour workshop on the REPLICATE System.
Modern dentistry has always moved between high-tech, precision, perfection and the right human touch and the St. Anton Congress is at the forefront, bringing expert speakers who are able to articulate the critical essence of these topics.
Knowledge in dentistry doubles every five years! This seems all the more astonishing, considering that the knowledge in the digital world doubles every two years. Therefore education and training have become the alpha and omega of the modern and comprehensive dental medical world. Robotics, laser technology, radiogenomics, biologization and customization of implant materials are techniques and developments that will influence dentistry over the next few years.
The REPLICATE System was featured in both a lecture from the main podium and a three-hour workshop given by
Dr. Detlef Hildebrand, Berlin and Ingo Fritz, NDI AG. The presentation and workshop focused on the clinical process, planning, reconstruction and production and clinical trials and outcomes.
Natural Dental Implants AG, headquartered in Berlin, Germany, and a U.S. subsidiary based in Dallas, Texas, was founded in 2006 to develop the intellectual property behind the REPLICATE™ Immediate Tooth Replacement System. Research and development operations began in 2009.
The REPLICATE™ System 2.0 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 single-tooth replacement offers patients an immediate, 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 is available in the European Union and will be offered in the United States pending FDA approval. Visit www.replicatetooth.com to learn more.
