London calling: Limited places available for final Nobel Biocare symposium of 2017

London calling: Limited places available for final Nobel Biocare symposium of 2017

 

Dental professionals have one last chance this year to experience the high-quality educational experience of a Nobel Biocare symposium when the final event of the 2017 series takes place in in London, UK, November 10–11.

A limited number of places are still available for the event, which will be held at the Millennium Gloucester Hotel. The symposium will offer lectures and master classes from both globally renowned experts and the leading local names in implantology.

Speakers include Dr. Rubén Davó from Alicante, Spain, who will present the new Trefoil system for the first time in the UK. Launched on October 5, the Trefoil system is a breakthrough in efficiency for treating the edentulous mandible, enabling a fixed and definitive prosthesis on the day of surgery.1

As a principal investigator in an international multi-center study of the Trefoil system conducted prior to launch, Dr. Davó is one of very few clinicians in the world already experienced in treating patients with this latest Nobel Biocare innovation.

The latest techniques for the treatment of edentulous patients and those with a failing dentition will also be addressed on stage by Prof. Paulo Malo, from Lisbon, Portugal–the pioneer of the original, proven All-on-4® treatment concept–and London-based Dr. Andrew Dawood, who will present the management of the atrophic maxilla using zygomatic implants.

Other highlights include a comprehensive program covering the integrated digital workflow. Nobel Biocare’s collaborative workflow has been developed to significantly increase treatment efficiency and patient acceptance with the latest digital innovations.2,3 International speakers on the topic include Switzerland’s Dr. Roland Glauser and Drs. Leon Pariente and Karim Dada of Paris, France, who will discuss these latest digital trends shaping implantology and their benefits.

Over 6,000 dental professionals have attended the 10 Nobel Biocare symposia held already this year, with hundreds more expected in London.

What attendees of previous Nobel Biocare 2017 symposia had to say:

“Nobel Biocare doesn’t present products, but solutions. Once again they surprised us with the new solutions that are now available. These will continue to help us in our daily practice, making things easy and simple, with better solutions for the clinic and, naturally, for our patients.” Dr. Pedro Santos Silva, Portugal

“The Next Generation session was a wonderful surprise, it’s good to see young speakers with such good presentations, they are our future. Congratulations to Nobel Biocare on the event!” Dr. Alexandre Rovisco, Portugal

"I would like to thank Nobel Biocare for the perfect organization of the Dubai Symposium. The scientific program was outstanding, as the renowned clinicians lecturing succeeded in relating how Nobel Biocare has always joined science and innovative technologies in the constant evolution of their products to better serve the dentists and their patients." Prof. Nabil Barakat, Lebanon

“We enjoyed a top-level scientific program. Highlights were the interdisciplinary approach, the live surgeries and also an excellent program for the laboratory technicians who play a very important role in treatment – this is crucial for the benefit of the patients.” Dr. Beatriz Aranguena, Spain

“Nobel Biocare events are always interesting – lecturers from all over the world providing different concepts and approaches are widely represented here. They help to follow trends in the contemporary dental market and to be at the cutting edge, both clinically and scientifically.” Dr. Ivan Kondratiev, Russia

“The Nobel Biocare symposium in China has been well organized with fantastic academic topics. It provides dentists with a good chance to be exposed to the latest ideas and technologies of the dental implant industry.” Prof. Ye Lin, China

It’s all about the patient

It’s all about the patient

 

 

“The conference provided a very informative day, covering a varied range of topics and I found it interesting to see all the new developments and research. It was great that so many speakers who are top of the profession worldwide came to Dublin and I found it useful to get reaffirmation that we’re following good protocols and achieving the same success rates as those international leaders.” – Dr Eoin Fleetwood, Eyre Square Dental Clinic in Galway

 

Entitled Osseointegration Reimagined, Nobel Biocare’s Dublin Team Conference 2016 highlighted just how far dental implantology has come since those early days.

 

The full-day programme brought a piece of June’s Global Symposium in New York to Ireland, demonstrating Nobel Biocare’s total commitment to education and innovation. An array of world-class speakers took delegates on a journey through the development of dental implants, with lectures in the morning and smaller masterclasses and workshops in the afternoon.

 

From where it all began, Professor David Harris kicked off proceedings by paying tribute to Professor Per-Ingvar Brånemark, before Dr Bertil Friberg reminisced about what dental implantology was like in the 80s. It seems strange to realise that only 20 years ago, patients had to wear a denture for one year before implants could be placed in healed extraction sites!

 

Professor Hannes Watchel, Dr Ana Ferro and Dr Paul O’Reilly then offered their own experiences from Munich, Lisbon and Ireland, each emphasising the benefits of implants for patients and their quality of life. Modern treatment options for compromised patients were also discussed, with Dr Dawood considering situations where customised implants, cutting-edge 3D printing and innovative ideas were combined to deliver truly life-changing solutions.

 

Exploring the height of implant innovation, the final plenary session challenged the status quo with respect to the digital integrated workflow and CAD/CAM restorations and highlighted the importance of respecting the soft tissue. Dr Rompen also introduced the exciting new On1 concept, which brings the restorative platform from bone level to tissue level for maximum soft tissue attachment and optimised healing.

 

 

Throughout the morning’s lectures, a clear trend developed. All speakers – regardless of specialism or nationality – were passionate about simplifying the clinical workflow for a faster, more predictable and more cost-effective procedure for the patient.

 

Dr Robert Bowe from Bowe Dental Clinic in Limmerick commented:

 

“This was a very well-organised conference, where speakers provided different, innovative solutions to implant problems we face every day. Throughout the morning sessions there was a lot of new evidence presented, as a result of which I will look to modify my own practice. As with all Nobel Biocare events, I learnt something new and came away with a renewed enthusiasm for implant dentistry. It is also great to have the opportunity to talk with colleagues – it’s reassuring to know that we all face the same challenges and that there are solutions out there!”

 

In addition to all this, there were plenty of opportunities to network with industry-leading professionals, while also catching up with friends and colleagues. The Innovation Evening saw delegates and speakers come to together to enjoy a fantastic meal and entertainment, and a great time was had by all.

 

Paul O’Reilly, Scientific Co-Chair, added:

 

“Nobel Biocare is to be commended for assembling an impressive array of national and international speakers for this conference. As well as some outstanding lectures, a programme of hands on workshops and masterclasses allowed attendees to try innovative products, learn new techniques and gain an appreciation for the rapid advances that are occurring in treatment options for our patients.”
