A new company has been formed which will accelerate growth in dental implantology in the UK and Ireland
Dentsply Implants is already providing stronger support to help dental professionals increase implant treatment volumes.
The company is improving patient access to dental implants, introducing new prosthetic solutions and providing more postgraduate skills development for every member of the dental implant team.
Dentsply Implants combines the strengths of two companies that were already major players in the dental implant business, Dentsply Friadent and Astra Tech Dental.
The new company offers a comprehensive product range including trusted implant systems backed by more than a quarter of a century of continuous development: Ankylos, Astra Tech Implant SystemTM and XiVE. Its portfolio incorporates some of the latest clinical and prosthetic innovations for the replacement of missing natural teeth, not least Atlantistm patient-specific CAD/CAM abutments and Atlantis Isustm CAD/CAM superstructures.
Commenting on what the advent of Dentsply Implants means for those involved in implant dentistry in the UK and Ireland, managing director, Chris Meldrum, said: ‘We are intensifying our efforts to help dental practices and dental laboratories increase their implant business, by making this life-changing treatment more accessible for the millions of people with missing teeth. We have an unrivalled combination of people, products, education and practical support to help our customers succeed, whatever their ambitions in implant dentistry. Our aim is to become dental professionals’ preferred partner for implantology, by constantly striving to exceed their expectations on the issues that matter most.’
For millions of people with gaps in their dentition, direct access to dental implant treatment will be further expanded during 2013.
The number of clinics featured on Dentsply Implants’ www.dentists4implants.com swells to more than 200.
GDPs around the UK who wish to offer implant treatment will have the choice of more local R£lax events, to learn how easy it can be to complete the restorative phase of the treatment for their own patients.
Meanwhile, for clinicians who want to begin placing implants, and any dental professional who wants to gain new skills and learn techniques, there is a wider range of postgraduate training and development to choose from on www.courses4implants.com.
