This year we are once again launching several innovative products and services that will make your day-to-day work easier and more efficient and further improve your patients’ quality of life.
It is clear that our industry is experiencing highly dynamic development, and the environment for dental laboratories in particular is becoming increasingly challenging. In spring 2015 we launched a large number of new products and services in the area of implant prosthetics, in order to offer you active, steadfast support in making your dental laboratory even more efficient and competitive. Our clear mission is to be your first choice when it comes to the future of your laboratory.
The new Straumann® Bone Level Tapered Implant is a unique, impressive combination of clinically proven features and the specific advantages in terms of primary stability that the new design offers. Together with the Straumann® Pro Arch concept, which is also new, you now have the opportunity to offer immediate screw-retained complete restorations, even with low bone level.
There have been signs of a paradigm shift in the way in which patients obtain information for some time now. Whereas doctors were previously the only official authorities on medical issues, patients now very often obtain information themselves. And it is the modern online media that mainly influence patients in their decision-making processes. In order that you can actively support your patients and gain new patients for yourself and your implantology practice, we have therefore launched the comprehensive marketing package Straumann® Patient Pro.
We have also received some revealing information from the scientific world. Researchers at the Swedish University of Gothenburg have analyzed the short-term and long-term success of dental implants and the underlying factors in a large-scale study. One major finding of the study is that the brand of implant used makes a difference. In this analysis, Straumann implants achieved excellent success rates compared with many other manufacturers.
So as you can see, there are lots of reasons to smile. You can find out more about all these interesting topics in this issue. I hope you find this an enjoyable read.
