(DTI/Photo Koelnmesse Germany) IDS 2011:another record breaker for dentistry More than 10,000 visitors expected to attend the world’s largest dental show in Cologne,Germany. n During the International Dental Show 2011, TBR Group will present its PERIOSAVE implant system which guaran- tees an anti-bacterial protec- tionoftheperiodontandfitsthe clinical requirements of more than 20,000 TBR users world- wide. Mr.Benhamou,howdoes the PERIOSAVE system pro- tect the patient from peri- implantitis risks? We decided to come back andfocusonthebasisofdental implantology which is to offer the patient a durable implant with the lowest risk of infection. Indeed, studies have proved that 9 to 14 years afterimplantplacement,ariskofperi- implantitis occurs in 16 per cent of cases. A progressive loss of cortical bone happens which threatens the stabilityoftheimplant(Roos-Jansåcker et al. 2006). To avoid periimplantitis, and to providearealanti-bacterialglobalpro- tectionfortheimplant,wehave decidedtostudyandtodevelop several ranges of PERIOSAVE implants giving an answer to this main concern. For every indication, we propose an im- plant solution that provides surgeons with anti-bacterial safety and patients with a real aesthetics solution. The proposed implant so- lution must be adapted to the patient's anatomy and not the other way around. The dentist will be in a position to select the implant type according to the clinical case. Can you give us a short intro- duction to the PERIOSAVE implants lines ? 5 Julien Benhamou, CEO of TBR, France TBR PERIOSAVE—Protecting the periodont with an anti-bacterial shield An interview with Julien Benhamou,CEO ofTBR,about the company’s new implant system 8 page 5
