Great minds will come together to debate the clinical evidence behind the materials and techniques that today’s implant clinicians have at their fingertips.

Held on 16 February 2018 at Royal College of Physicians, delegates will attend the following programme:

08:30-09:00 – registration and exhibition
09:00-09:15 – welcome address
09:15-10:45 – Anthony Summerwill and Robert Oretti, Allograft versus xenograft: the natural choice

Taking into consideration the differing trends across the implant world, what is it that drives the choice of grafting material? Anthony and Robert bare the bones of grafting materials and expose the clinical evidence

10:45-11:15 – morning break and exhibition
11:15-12:45 – Adam Nulty and David Murnaghan, Digital versus analogue: the future of implant dentistry

There’s no getting away from it, the digital age is here and technology is evolving as you read! With technology moving so fast, what is the clinical evidence out there to support these new developments? Is there still a need for more traditional techniques, which has the clinical backing and years of data behind it? Adam and David debate the true advantages of digital implant dentistry and how implant systems have evolved to integrate with the benefits of CAD/CAM, computer guided surgery and surgical guide design.

12:45-14:00 – lunch and exhibition
14:00-15:30 – Marcus Beschnidt and Jack Ricci, Hard tissue versus soft tissue: the response to surface technology

Every implant is designed to create primary stability, however with so many options of surface technology on the market, what is the clinical evidence behind these surface technologies and how do they really work to encourage faster osseointegration and a positive soft tissue response? Marcus and Jack debate the evidence and take a deeper look at how hard tissue and soft tissue respond to the implant.

15:30-16:30 – Dr Carlos Repullo Sanchez making Implant dentistry iSy…
16:30-17:15 – guest speaker: all will be revealed on the day!
17:15-17:30 – closing remarks
