BIRMINGHAM, Ala., June 23 /PRNewswire/ -- The 2008 BioHorizons Global Symposium drew more than 1,000 attendees from 42 countries to San Diego, California for a 3-day scientific program on today's most important implant and tissue regeneration topics. Each clinician-moderated session featured a panel discussion of audience-submitted questions that kept participants fully engaged in the program.
Members of the scientific panel and moderators included Drs. Carl E. Misch, Michael A. Pikos, Maurice Salama and Michael Reddy. Featured presenters included Drs. Edward P. Allen, Stuart Froum, Michael McCracken, Craig Misch, Myron Nevins, and Marius Steigmann.
The keynote session featured presentations on the ground-breaking Laser-Lok(R) microchannels, BioHorizons' proprietary surface treatment now offered on Tapered Internal, Single-stage and Internal implants. Dr. Jack Ricci from NYU presented 15 years of in vitro, animal and human studies conducted at leading universities around the world on this precision-engineered surface. Dr. Myron Nevins from Harvard University presented results from his landmark study: Human Histological Evidence of a Connective Tissue Attachment to a Dental Implant.* In this study, Laser-Lok was shown to attract a physical connective tissue attachment to a predetermined zone on the implant while inhibiting epithelial downgrowth and preserving coronal bone levels. Dr. Nevins also showed Laser-Lok implants placed up to 9-years post-op with little to no bone loss.
BioHorizons and Dental Technologies, Inc. (DTI) also announced a new Restoration-to-Implant Lifetime Warranty covering implants, abutments and restorations when fabricated by a participating DTI Laboratory. This unique offer, made possible by the recent merger of BioHorizons and DTI, brings incredible value and practice building potential to the entire implant team.
