AMHERST, New York--Implant Esthetics encompasses a comprehensive approach toward the fabrication of implant- retained and implant-supported prostheses for clinicians and technicians. From treatment planning to implant restoration and care, Ivoclar Vivadent has provided solutions for the implant treatment process, including cements (Multilink Implant), ceramics (IPS e.max), provisional materials (Telio), and high-strength denture teeth (SR Phonares).Through soft-tissue contouring or abutment uncovering procedures using products like the Odyssey Navigator Diode Laser, as well as impression materials like the Accu-Dent Impression System for capturing detailed models for implant planning and stent fabrication, practitioners and technicians can create restorations that duplicate nature. What's more, all-ceramic implant supported restorations can be fabricated from IPS e.max lithium disilicate and temporary restorations can be fabricated from the Telio temporary system of materials, which provide esthetics, strength, and ease-of-use. For demanding indications including implant stabilized, partial and complete removable prosthetics, SR Phonares is a great solution. Most recently, Ivoclar Vivadent has partnered with Straumann and Nobel Biocare--companies in CAD/CAM and implant dentistry--to now provide customers with a product offering that supports implant esthetics.“Implant dentistry is now the standard of care,” said Dr. Michael Gaglio, vice president of marketing. "Having a core competence in the area of implant esthetics is a natural fit to service our customers.” For more information, call (800) 533-6825 in the U.S., (800) 263-8182 in Canada, or visit www.ivoclarvivadent.com.
