  Posted by: The Probe      11th October 2021

Starting tomorrow, the dental implant community will meet online at the European Association of Osseointegration (“EAO”) congress. Dentsply Sirona Implants supports the EAO Digital Days as a Diamond sponsor and also offers its own sessions, which can be viewed live or on demand in re-live giving participants the option of joining at their own convenience. On Tuesday, October 12, at 22.00 CEST (10 p.m.), three renowned clinicians, Stijn Vervaeke (Belgium), Stefan Vandeweghe (Belgium) and Martin Wanendeya (United Kingdom), will discuss prime innovation and smart procedures at Inspiration TALKS and share their first clinical experiences with the new DS PrimeTaper implant system. Participants will experience an innovative and yet scientifically proven implant design and efficient digital implant workflows from data capturing to the final prosthetic restoration – finally coming together in one smart procedure.

With a complete ecoystem of digital solutions and products – including well-known brands like Simplant, OSSIX, Axeos, Primescan, Atlantis and MIS – Dentsply Sirona is streamlining implant treatments to enable practice growth and more consistent patient satisfaction.

Comfort with new products based on well-known procedures

Dentsply Sirona Implants presents DS PrimeTaper, a self-tapping implant with a tapered design that can be inserted safely and easily. This enables long-term bone stability. The double thread allows the implant to be inserted quickly and safely. A simple drilling protocol, with only a few different drills, supports the workflow.

Dentsply Sirona worked closely with the global implant key opinion leader community, and they have already started gaining experience with the product. Their reactions have been very positive:

Dr. Dan Butterman, dentist from Centennial, Colorado (USA), emphasizes the importance of a seamless workflow. “DS PrimeTaper represents the next step in implant dentistry. The digital-driven workflow results in higher accuracy, repeatability of processes, and time savings.” Butterman adds, “My patients have better things to do than spending time in my office. Thanks to clearly defined processes and digital solutions, I can offer safer and faster treatment options which my patients appreciate. That’s what efficiency is all about!”

Dr. Martin Wanendeya, dentist from the United Kingdom, notes that “DS PrimeTaper as a part of an integrated concept is different from what we knew before. In addition to reducing chair time and simplifying collaboration with my laboratory, Primescan for Atlantis suprastructures ensures aesthetic predictability and a perfect fit.”

Dentsply Sirona is about intelligent concepts that work intuitively and improve the predictability of treatment to enable clinicians – specialists and general practitioners alike – to focus on what they do best: creating healthy and beautiful smiles. The idea of a connected and seamless solution is transformative in digital implant dentistry and is a first, essential step towards building an exciting future focused on the needs of our implant customers and their patients.
