Many old and new fans gathered at the IDS to view the custom-made KunstZahnWerk pieces. They had come from all over the world to admire the works and to gain new impressions. In numbers: 120 registrations from 4 continents and 49 entries from 16 countries.
The challenge was to fabricate a combination consisting of a mucosa-supported full denture for the maxilla and a partially removable restoration for the mandible with four CAMLOG implants. All work had to be prepared using the Gerber setup method. This competition was held in cooperation with CAMLOG - a leading supplier of complete systems and products for implant dentistry and implant-supported dentures.
Ms. Claudia Schenkel-Thiel, Managing Director of CANDULOR AG, opened the award ceremony with a cordial welcome to all participants and praised the submitted pieces of art. With a short patient history as example, she emphasized how important it is to approach removable prosthetics with a high degree of passion to be able to restore the patient's individual joie de vivre.
