Surgical Placement of the Minimally Invasive, REPLICATE™ Tooth
Will be Streamed Live Into Lecture Hall
BERLIN, GERMANY – September 15, 2016 – Natural Dental Implants (NDI), AG today announced that its REPLICATE Immediate Tooth Replacement System 2.0 will be featured and demonstrated during the upcoming first Root Analogue Implant REPLICATE Tooth Congress at the Academisch Centrum Tandheelkunde Amsterdam (ACTA) on Saturday, November 12th. ACTA is regarded as one of the top 5 dental research institutes in the world.
According to Lea Ellermeier Nesbit, CEO of Natural Dental Implants’ US subsidiary, “As we seek FDA approval, it’s worth noting that the REPLICATE Immediate Tooth Replacement System has been used successfully for several years by some of Europe’s most respected oral surgeons and implantologists. This prestigious event will showcase the clinical acceptance and breadth of this technology.”
The conference will be co-hosted by Prof. Dr. Daniël Wismeijer, the ACTA Department of Oral Surgery and Natural Dental Implants AG and will explore the technologies that enable personalized treatment and explain how they can raise the standard of care across dentistry and medicine.
The REPLICATE™ Immediate Tooth Replacement System is at the forefront of this evolution and attendees will see firsthand how a customized root analog implant system works. They will learn about the design and manufacturing technologies used to make these custom dental implants, the clinical indications and patient selection process and also observe a live surgical placement of a REPLICATE™ Tooth.
The complete agenda is available here: ACTA-REPLICATE Congress (http://bit.ly/2czpFxh). In addition, a recording of the surgical placement of a REPLICATE™ Tooth can be viewed by registering for the REPLICATE System Doctor Portal (http://bit.ly/2cy2qlD).
About the REPLICATE Immediate Tooth Replacement System:
The REPLICATE™ System 2.0 features the REPLICATE™ Tooth, an anatomically-shaped, 100% customized, titanium-zirconia tooth, and the REPLICATE™ Temporary Protective Crown, a customized cover shield designed to protect the REPLICATE Tooth during the healing process. This new approach to single-tooth replacement offers patients an immediate, minimally invasive alternative to traditional dental implants and three-unit bridges.
The REPLICATE Tooth is an anatomical copy of the patient’s natural tooth that fits into the space occupied by the tooth being removed. It is one piece; a super-hydrophilic titanium root fused to a zirconia preparation with an emerging profile similar to that of a natural tooth. Each REPLICATE Tooth component is designed individually and can be modified to overcome anatomical limitations or to meet specific clinical requirements. This unique approach allows general dentists and specialists to immediately replace single and multi-rooted teeth without drilling or altering the adjacent teeth.
Natural Dental Implants AG, headquartered in Berlin, Germany, and a U.S. subsidiary based in Dallas, Texas, was founded in 2006 to develop the intellectual property behind the REPLICATE™ Immediate Tooth Replacement System. Research and development operations began in 2009. The REPLICATE System is available in the European Union and will be offered in the United States pending FDA approval.
