Paris, France based startup SpotImplant.com indexes all existing and past implants from all brands and all countries. They have an AI-based deep learning algorithm that has indexed thousands of dental implant images and X-rays. These have been annotated with the type implant model to produce a comprehensive training set for their deep learning algorithm. You can upload your implant x-ray and they analyze the image to identify the implant and notify you of the top matching brand and model of
A new peptide, embedded in a soft gel or a thin, flexible film and placed next to a cavity, encourages cells inside teeth to regenerate in about a month, according to a new study in the journal ACS Nano. This technology is the first of its kind. The new gel or thin film could eliminate the need to fill painful cavities or drill deep into the root canal of an infected tooth. The gel or thin film contains a peptide

Dentak have released an innovative combination trephine/bonemill/delivery system for harvesting and delivering autogenous bone. The trephines which come in a variety of sizes from 3.2mm to 6.2mm feature a drill blade inside the trephine which mills the bone as it is removed by the trephine. The whole trephine is then placed in a handle for delivery to the recipient site.
Satelec have released their new `ImplantCenter`, which features both a micromotor with very high torque (120 n/cm max) as well as 2 piezoelectric handpieces. The `Piezotome` handpiece is used to perform piezoelectric-based surgery while the `Newtron` is a piezon scaling and maintenance handpiece. It also features 2 peristaltic pumps for simultaneous use of both types of handpieces.
France`s Anthrogyr has released a new implant handpiece. The `Montblanc` handpiece features a very high torque maximum rating of 80ncm and includes a handy adjustable drip stop that provides additional safety during implant bed preparation. The handpiece is distributed by Aseptico in the USA.
T.B.R Group has introduced a unique ziconium collared implant. It features one-stage titanium implant with a zirconium trans-gingival emergence collar. They claim that the Zirconia enhances the fibroblast and osteoblast cell adhesion and proliferation compared to titanium, provides for lower bacterial colonization at the collar and shows evidence of creeping attachment of the gingiva to the zirconium collar.
