Ludhiana, September 29
Dentists of the region have been exposed to What is being termed as the “future of dentistry” through a series of workshops and lectures on metal-free ceramics, a new technique, which has reportedly made dental implants successful to an extent of 98 per cent. The workshop and lecture series are being conducted under the aegis of the Indian Dental Association’s state chapter.

Mr Andreas Hubben, a senior dental ceramist presently working as a technical adviser to Vita, Germany, and Dr Vivek Saggar, a local dental surgeon, apprised the members of the Punjab Dental Association of this new technique in their lectures delivered in the city on Friday.

The two dental specialists, trained in Germany in this new technique, told the participating dentists that unlike in the past when there were limited options, this new technique had opened new vistas in cosmetic dentistry.

Dr Saggar said the probability of matching the colour of artificial implants with metal-free ceramic was much higher than in the conventional implants. He said the technique caused no pain and was affordable.

Lectures on the new technique would also be held at Faridkot, Amritsar and Chandigarh over the next few days where local doctors and medical students would be told about the new technique.
