Straumann Live at the AEEDC in Dubai

"In different scenarios, we need diversity for selection"

Dr. Alper Gültekin, Turkey

Key topics of modern dentistry

Modern dentistry is evolving constantly and at a fast pace. Straumann strongly focuses on important trends in dentistry in order to offer your patients innovative treatment options that make them smile – and you stand out from the competition: esthetic restorations, less invasive treatment plans, solutions for edentulous patients, digital performance, compromised patients, prosthetic efficiency, and enablement and education.

At this year´s edition of the AEEDC in Dubai we focus on scientific evidence in patient-centric treatments with special consideration on edentulism, long-term success, predictable treatment outcomes and pleasing esthetics (Straumann AEEDC brochure). On this occasion, we have interviewed renowned dentists from different countries in the area.  Watch the interview with Dr. Alper Gültekin from Turkey where he speaks about the need of a diverse product portfolio in biomaterials, long-term evidence vs. early adoption of new technologies and continuous education in the field of implant dentistry.
