Investigación y documentación

Nuestra filosofía

Puede contar con Dentsply Sirona Implants para una documentación sólida y unos resultados clínicos fiables. Nuestros productos dentales están bien documentados. En la documentación es una parte esencial e integranda en el proceso de desarrollo de productos.

El completo programa de estudios incluye más de 1300 publicaciones y referencias científicas que apoyan nuestros productos.

Todo está en la documentación

El Astra Tech Implant System está excepcionalmente bien documentado con resultados clínicos fiables. La documentación es una parte esencial e integrada del proceso de desarrollo de productos.

Los productos dentales se han documentado para un amplio rango de indicaciones clínicas, aplicaciones quirúrgicas y soluciones prostéticas. Se presentan unos excelentes resultados en cuanto a la eficacia y fiabilidad, incluyendo:

  • Elevadas tasas de éxito y supervivencia de implantes 
  • Niveles de hueso marginal mantenidos, es decir, nula o limitada reabsorción ósea marginal 
  • Tejidos blandos periimplantarios sanos 
  • El mismo resultado clínico óptimo con protocolos de una y de dos fases quirúrgicas 
  • Resultados predecibles para protocolos de carga inmediata y temprana

Las investigaciones clínicas en marcha y el desarrollo de productos se dirigen hacia situaciones más exigentes y avanzadas, así como hacia protocolos alternativos para un aumento del confort de los pacientes durante el tratamiento. Estos esfuerzos están respaldados por la importante información que obtenemos de los estudios preclínicos in vitro e in vivo.

Los resultados de nuestras investigaciones y la documentación están publicados en revistas científicas revisadas por pares y se resumen en las Revisiones Científicas y en los Resúmenes de documentación.

Estudios

To document our products' performance, efficacy, and safety in clinical situations, we plan and coordinate studies in collaboration with universities and private clinics around the world.

A variety of different research activities are ongoing within our company initiated study program, as well as within our investigator initiated study program. Within the scope of these extensive research programs, we are dedicated to confirm that our products are safe and reliable, for the benefit of clinicians and their patients, and to secure that we adhere to global and local regulatory demands.

Company Initiated Study program (CIS)

We start a number of pre-market approval studies every year as a part of our Research and Development process. In addition, we plan and initiate on average, 2-3 prospective, multicenter, clinical studies within our Clinical research unit on a yearly basis.

See the list of ongoing and recently completed studies  within our company initiated studies program, including short descriptions of each study, and links to publicly available information regarding study design and results.

About us

Within Dentsply Sirona Implants, we have long and extensive experience in conducting high quality studies, often with long time follow-up. Our studies are frequently monitored to assure reliability of study data. Our research complies with the requirements of the FDA and the International Committee of Medical Journal Editors (ICMJE). In line with these requirements, as well as for ethical and transparency reasons, information about our company initiated studies is continuously published on the ClinicalTrials.gov website.

Estudios iniciados por el investigador (IIS)

Como parte de nuestro programa de desarrollo clínico, se han iniciado un amplio número de proyectos iniciados por clínicos de diferentes países, dentro del programa de Estudios iniciados por el investigador (IIS).

Los Estudios iniciados por el investigador están iniciados y son conducidos por clínicos e instituciones para investigar diferentes productos e indicaciones. Cada año se reicben aproximadamente 80 solicitudes de IIS. Aproximadamente el 30% de las solicitudes son aprobadas y reciben soporte parcial. Actualmente se apoya a más de 100 estudios iniciados por el investigador, éstos involucran más de 250 investigadores en más de 20 países.

Los objetivos de estos estudios están determinados por los intereses de los investigadores e incluyen varias áreas, tanto clínicas como expermientales. Los proyectos que son llevados a cabo pueden ser, por ejemplo, estudios clínicos prospectivos, informes de caso, análisis in vitro y estudios mecánicos.  

Programa de investigación clínica

De media iniciamos de 2 a 3 estudios clínicos prospectivos, multicéntricos cada año, para:

  • Confirmar que nuestros productos son seguros y fialbes, para el beneficio de los clínicos y sus pacientes.
  • Cumplimiento de los requerimientos de seguridad. 
  • Ampliar las indicaciones de nuestros productos.

Participan en estos estudios, trabajando en ellos de forma diaria, investigadores clínicos dedicados de diferentes universidades alrededor del mundo.

Debajo puede ver una lista de los estudios de nuestro programa de investigación clínica que están en marcha, incluyendo una breve descripción de cada uno y la especificación de los productos investigados.
