Aesthetics at the International Dental Show (IDS) 2017: Ceramic innovations inspire

Precoloured veneering ceramics - infiltration method, staining techniques - economic production options for aesthetic restorations - a central theme of IDSPeople, who have beautiful eyes and lovely teeth, are beautiful. Because that is what the eye of the onlooker perceives first. The proportions have to be right and form a harmonious whole. As far as teeth are concerned, the dental industry has created a host of innovative methods and products over the past decades, which narrow the gap more and more between a high ideal and the achievable reality. These include modern diagnosis and therapy options (i.e. face scanners, backward planning implantology, controlled tissue generation) and in particular ceramic materials. The trade fair visitor can gain a comprehensive overview at the International Dental Show in Cologne, from 21 to 25 March 2017.New materialsIt goes without saying that ceramics are predestined for use in dentistry because of their white basic colouring. They have been playing an outstanding role as veneering materials for decades and they have increasingly been establishing themselves as framework material for around twenty years. Zirconium oxide, lithium disilicate, zirconium oxide reinforced lithium disilicate - a whole row of options are available today depending on the individual indication.How far these indications range in detail remains to be an exciting question. For example, to what extent can zirconium oxide reinforced lithium silicate be used for bridg...

In conclusion, most experimental data on immune changes with aging show a decline in many immune parameters when compared to young healthy subjects. The bulk of these changes is termed immunosenescence. Immunosenescence has been considered for some time as detrimental because it often leads to subclinical accumulation of pro-inflammatory factors and inflammaging. Together, immunosenescence and inflammaging are suggested to stand at the origin of most of the diseases of the elderly, such as infections, cancer, autoimmune disorders, and chronic inflammatory diseases. However, an increasing number of gerontologists have chall...

Scientists from a biomedical research consortium could help a U.S. government funded program aiming to restore sensory perception. The U.S. Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) established the Neural Engineering System Design program (NESD) to encourage development of “an implantable neural interface able to provide unprecedented signal resolution and data-transfer bandwidth between the human brain and the digital world,” according to DARPA’s Web site. DARPA has awarded six NESD contracts, one of which was given to CorticalSight, a program by the Seeing and Hearing Foundation (Fondation Voir ...
