The WorldSkills Competition gives talented young people the chance to showcase their professional skills to a global audience. What’s more, this international competition has many additional benefits. In the following interview, we discuss the importance of professional competitions as part of W&H’s professional training programme and how the requirements of the WorldSkills Competition are changing.
Aim of Treatment: Many periimplant defects need to be carefully cleaned surgically so as to stop infections and the associated further bone loss. This can be achieved reliably with the slender piezosurgical instruments, which penetrate even deep, crevice-shaped defects thanks to their design. Following decontamination of the defect, it is possible to harvest autologous bone material for the subsequent augmentation atraumatically and efficiently using the piezosurgical instruments too.
Aim of Treatment: In open periodontal debridement critical factors include good access to the root surface and gentle but efficient calculus removal. Following instrumentation the surface should be clean and smooth, which helps to reduce microbial recolonization and enhances the attachment of connective and epithelial tissues. This can be successfully achieved with a selection of dedicated piezoelectric instruments designed to reach even into deep and narrow defects.
