Dental Prosthetics: A Central Topic at IDS 2009



Dental prosthetics:
The best designs and finishes for dentures – a central topic at IDS 2009

Prosthetics play a key role in modern dentistry. This will only increase in the future as the population ages. For this reason, the next International Dental Show will once again be an ideal forum for finding out much more about current developments in this increasingly complex field. “Today as never before, single crowns, bridges, inlays and suprastructures for implantology can be manufactured with a variety of different materials,” says Dr. Martin Rickert, President of the VDDI.


And digital technology is being incorporated into production processes more and more, meaning that, alongside the proven classical methods, technicians have improved options so they can work more efficiently and can establish new procedures in laboratories. As a result, the chance of efficiently producing perfect prosthetics is increasing. However, one critical step in the treatment remains “in the hands of dentists”: accurate casting. Modern casting materials offer high precision and processing security in this process, which plays a crucial role in the accuracy of any restoration. In addition to classic modelling techniques, digital CAD processes in particular are available for the construction of products. 


 Dentists and technicians can find out much more about current advances in prosthetics and consult with qualified manufacturers at the International Dental Show (IDS) from 24 to 28 March 2009 in Cologne. Visitors to IDS will be able to see the entire range of new opportunities available in order to gain an ideal overview for their laboratory or practice. “The International Dental Show, the world’s largest trade fair for dentistry and dental technology, will be taking place in Cologne from 24 to 28 March 2009 and offers a first-class view of the products on offer in the field of prosthetics. In addition, this is a wonderful opportunity to gain comprehensive information about the current state of dentistry in discussions with specialists from exhibiting companies and experienced users,” says Dr. Markus Heibach, Managing Director of the VDDI.
