Expert Panel Consensus Meeting on
Monitoring, Diagnosis and Treatment of Peri-Implant Disease
19 November 2012
Savoy Place, 2 Savoy Place, Westminster, London WC2R 0BL
In February 2010, the Association of Dental Implantology UK staged a Focus meeting entitled ‘Focus on Peri-implantitis.’ The event, which gathered four of world's most eminent periodontologists - Professors Lang, Mombelli, Berglundh and Renvert - explored the primary and secondary aetiological factors surrounding the pathogenesis of this increasingly common condition. Attracting over 350 of the UK's prominent implantologists and periodontologists, it was the ADI’s most successful one-day educational event to date.
Despite much research into the aetiology of peri-implantitis, there is still lack of clinical consensus regarding the monitoring, diagnosis and treatment of different stages of peri-implant disease. It is therefore appropriate to structure a further event in order to examine the diagnosis and treatment of peri-implant diseases, by a panel of experts who have been asked to discuss and reach a consensus on the “best practice guidelines” on management of peri-implant disease.
I am delighted to announce this one-day event entitled ‘Expert Panel Consensus Meeting on Monitoring, Diagnosis and Treatment of Peri-implant Disease’. The invited expert panel of speakers includes Professors Tord Berglundh (Sweden), Mariano Sanz (Spain), Nikos Donos (Eastman, London), the President of the British Society of Dental Hygienists and Therapists Sally Simpson, Nicola West (Bristol) as well as a UK periodontologist Maria Retzepi.
The aims of the meeting will be:
- to present the best available evidence on monitoring, diagnosis and treatment of peri-implant disease
- to invite our panel of experts to debate the evidence and reach a consensus
- to issue best practice guidelines on how to monitor and treat peri-implant disease based on the expert panel’s conclusions/consensus
Please register early to take advantage of the early-bird fee. I look forward to seeing you at Savoy Place in November.
