ESTHETICS AND FUNCTION IN THE ANTERIOR AND LATERAL AREAS − EFFICIENTLY IMPLEMENTED WITH iSy Dr. Andreas Kraus, Peiting The iSy Implant System was launched on the market at IDS in 2013. Along with high quality standards, iSy is also characterized by outstanding efficiency and cost effectiveness. Both these aspects formed the heart of the iSy System concept right from the start and represent the added value of the product concept. At the same time, the completely redeveloped iSy Implant System was provided with quality features and properties that ensure outstanding functional and esthetic treatment outcomes. Dr. Andreas Kraus has been an iSy user from the word go. He uses the system for a wide range of indications and presents two of his own patient cases here. iSy in everyday use The iSy Implant System attracted our in- terest right from the start thanks to its sophisticated product and application con- cept. After testing the product in the clinic for the standard indications, we extended the range of indications of the system extensively and now feel that there are hardly any restrictions on its clinical use. Our experiences refer to 142 iSy implants that we inserted from April 2013 to Sep- tember 2015. The two case studies de- scribed below reveal the various options that the system offers us in routine clinical use. Anterior reconstruction regio 12 The 53-year-old patient presented in our clinic with a horizontally fractured tooth 12 with root fillings (Fig. 1) . The clinical findings eight weeks after tooth extraction are shown in Figures 2 to 4 . Fig. 1: Tooth 12 was horizontally fractured and therefore had to be removed. Fig. 2: The initial clinical situation is characterized by gaps between the upper and lower anterior teeth.
