Titanium bases CAD/CAM free – flexible solutions with angled screw channel

With the advent of cement-induced peri-implantitis, implantological restoration concepts with cementless direct screw fixations have become established in recent years. However, these can encounter challenges, particularly in the anterior region. In addition to optimal implant positioning, the placement of the screw channel must be considered during planning. Especially in the anterior region of the maxilla, the screw channel could emerge in the area of the incisal edges or even in the labial veneer surface. BioHorizons Camlog’s newly launched titanium bases, called CAD/CAM free, will allow palatal or lingual access to the abutment screw.

In the esthetic area, the axis alignments can be corrected up to 25° with the titanium bases CAD/CAM free. This also helps in the posterior region if the placement of the implants is not optimal from a prosthetic point of view. With a small mouth opening and correct implant position, the abutment can be placed in such a way that the angled approach is advantageous. If the interocclusal distance is sufficient, the titanium base CAD/CAM free with high chimney can be used as a standard bonding base (0°). Unlike the titanium bases CAD/CAM free, the titanium bases CAD/CAM are not compatible with the CEREC® system. A specially configured ballpoint screwdriver is required for angled screw access.

Product features at a glance:

  • Axis correction of up to 25° vertically and 35° horizontally possible (for CONELOG® with 2 mm gingival height up to 15° vertical)
  • Anti-rotation protection for precise bonding of the ceramic crown
  • Optimal placement of the screw channel
  • Two different chimney heights (4.7 mm and 6.5 mm)
  • One gingival height each standard and Platform-Switching abutment for CAMLOG® implants
  • Two gingival heights for CONELOG® implants
  • A specially configured Ballpoint screwdriver is required

BioHorizons Camlog presents new perspectives on guided bone augmentation at this year’s EAO Congress in Berlin

The company will showcase its comprehensive portfolio of biomaterials and implant systems and will offer workshops on bone regeneration and open-healing concepts in modern implant dentistry.

BioHorizons Camlog will participate in the European Association for Osseointegration (EAO) 2023 Congress, held in Berlin from September 28 to 30, 2023. According to EAO, more than 5,000 visitors from all over the world are expected at this year’s event. For the first time, it will also be possible to attend EAO programmes online, whereby all participants will be actively involved in the broadcasts and discussions.

At the BioHorizons Camlog stand H09, participants can discover the company’s broad portfolio of innovative and holistic regenerative solutions in biomaterials and implant systems. BioHorizons Camlog has established itself as one of the leading suppliers of premium dental implant systems, restorative components, a comprehensive line of biologics products and digital solutions which helps dentists to provide patients with the optimum treatment.

BioHorizons Camlog will also host two workshops at EAO.

On Friday, September 29, 2023, Prof. Daniel Rothamel (Germany) will speak on allogeneic bone substitute materials for bone regeneration in his workshop. He will demonstrate fundamentals and techniques of hard tissue augmentation with allografts based on patient cases and hands-on exercises. The practical exercises on the model include the application of allogeneic materials in particulate form, block augmentation, and the shell technique.

Later that day, Dr. Robert Oretti (United Kingdom) will present the concept of open healing and demonstrate options for its application in modern implant dentistry. In this hands-on workshop, participants will learn to choose between the different treatment options, focusing on the steps to achieve passive closure over the bone graft without compromising the muco-gingival line.

Between the two workshops, Prof. Rothamel and Dr. Oretti will provide insight into allogeneic bone substitute materials in an industry forum, as there is growing evidence that allogeneic grafts may be a safe alternative to autologous grafts in implant therapy. In this forum, they will be presenting new data and therapeutic concepts on allografts, indicating the potential clinical relevance of these materials in implant dentistry.

BioHorizons Camlog helps collect more than £10,000 worth of items for Naomi House & Jacksplace

Efforts will help to support children and young adults in hospice

BioHorizons Camlog, a Henry Schein company, is helping individuals in need by collecting more than £10,000 worth of items for Naomi House & Jacksplace, hospices supporting life limited and life threatened children, young adults, and families from central southern England*.

To secure the donations, the BioHorizons Camlog team participated in a “charity hustle,” an event organised by the corporate fundraising team at Naomi House & Jacksplace that challenges employees to work together by using their communication skills to acquire as many much-needed items as possible for the hospices.

The teams were split into two and given a list of essential items, both for the individuals in hospice and for prizes at future fundraising events. They contacted local shops and businesses, in-person, over the phone, and via email, to gather contributions. With each item allocated a set number of points based on its value or worth to the charity, the teams competed for the most points.

Over 80 items were acquired in one afternoon by the BioHorizons Camlog teams, including hospitality tickets to Liverpool F.C., Tottenham Hotspur F.C., and the British Grand Prix Moto GP 2023 – each to be used for fundraising. Other items included sensory and wellbeing products, arts and crafts, and toys and games for the care floor and families staying at the hospices.

“It has been an absolute pleasure to partner with BioHorizons Camlog, who have been supporting our hospices since 2014,” said Ella Clayton, Senior Fundraiser at Naomi House & Jacksplace. “It was brilliant to work with such a dedicated team who gave up their time to take part in this event and to help secure much-needed donated items for our charity. Thank you to everyone involved – you have truly gone above and beyond, and we are so grateful for your continued support.”

This initiative aligns with Henry Schein Cares, Henry Schein’s corporate social responsibility programme. Henry Schein Cares stands on five pillars: empowering Team Schein to reach their potential, advancing health equity and expanding access to care for underserved communities, accelerating environmental sustainability, strengthening, and diversifying our supply chain, and maintaining strong ethical governance. Health care activities supported by Henry Schein Cares focus on four main areas: (1) wellness, treatment, prevention, and education; (2) capacity building; (3) emergency preparedness and disaster response; and (4) health system strengthening.

“Our team enjoyed participating in the ‘charity hustle’,” said Naomi Pleasants, Marketing Manager, BioHorizons Camlog, UK. “It encouraged team building and healthy competition, all whilst supporting a great cause. At BioHorizons Camlog, we believe that every person is as important as the next and giving back to individuals in our community is extremely important to us.”
