The Osstell Scientific Symposium 2016
EAO Congress 2016 | Paris, France
Thank you everyone who joined us at EAO 2016 in Paris, the organizers and the speakers that made our 8th annual scientific symposium such a success!
At this year’s symposium, four well-known experts demonstrated how to monitor osseointegration in various treatment scenarios in order to optimize treatment time and implant loading and accomplish predictable results. Prof. Meredith, Dr. Malmquist and Dr. Neugebauer gave three highly appreciated lectures, along with an interactive and lively Q&A session, moderated by Dr. Dagnelid.
“The aim of our annual symposium is to provide an opportunity for dental professionals to learn about the use of ISQ diagnostics in everyday practice and to interactively discuss the topic with experienced clinicians,” commented Osstell CEO Jonas Ehinger.
The Q&A session turned out to be one of the highlights of the event. It was very much appreciated by the audience who participated in the polls and asked questions using an online response system, and the speakers enjoyed the exchange and hearing from the audience.
The videos will be available shortly. To read more about the Symposium in the meantime, please visit Dental Tribune
Osseointegration of implants:
Requests for shorter treatment times along with a growing number of patients with risk factors place greater demands on dentists and available technology. These speakers represent more than 30 years of combined experience with Osstell and the ISQ scale in daily practice, and will in these presentations discuss how they use the ISQ scale to make implant treatment protocols more predictable.
Prof. Neil Meredith (Australia) More than 25 years ago, scientists Prof. Neil Meredith and Prof. Peter Cawley, shared the frustration of not being able to determine osseointegration in an accurate, objective, and consistent way – beyond their own dexterity and tactile skills. The concept of Resonance Frequency Analysis (RFA) was thereby developed – a method that has now become an international benchmark among dental implant specialists.
Dr. Marcus Dagnelid (Sweden) will focus on the concept behind Osstell using Resonance Frequency Analysis to determine implant stability and osseointegration. The science behind the method and the objective benefits coupled to clinical cases and guidelines will be discussed.
Dr. Jay Malmquist (USA) will discuss cases, including immediate or early loading and grafting, and using ISQ diagnostics in daily practice.
Dr. Joerg Neugebauer (Germany) Even with the use of short and angulated placed implants there is still a need for grafting procedures. For a safe treatment implant stability can be monitored without harming the implant to determine the healing time after implant placement and the loading time after second stage surgery.
