Focus on Bone Substitutes
A Full Day Symposium
28th April 2008
The Weston Building, Manchester Conference Centre
One of the key factors contributing to the long term functional and aesthetic success of dental implants is the quality and quantity of supporting bone. In practice clinicians often need to select appropriate bone augmentation materials to help with the reconstruction of bone defects in association with implant placement. This choice needs to be made on the basis of clinical evidence. Therefore, this one-day meeting 'Focus on Bone Substitutes' is of particular relevance, examining both the biological basis as well as the evidence supporting the clinical use of some of the currently available bone augmentation materials.
During the day, seven renowned experts will present the evidence for both xenografts and synthetic materials. Specifically, the performance of these materials in both alveolar ridge reconstruction and sinus augmentation will be highlighted.
