Maintenance of Marginal Bone

Last September, Nobel Biocare brought together a group of internationally acknowledged experts to reach agreement on the subject of marginal bone management. Held at Karolinska Institutet in Stockholm, it has became known as the “Consensus Meeting.” On June 8, they will be reconvening at Europerio 7 to publically discuss their findings.

On June 8, 2012, Nobel Biocare will be hosting a public forum at Europerio 7 in Vienna, Austria, on the subject of “Maintenance of Marginal Bone around Implants”.

The panel will be made up of such well-known authorities as Drs. Marco Esposito, Björn Klinge, Jörg Meyle, Andrea Mombelli, Eric Rompen, Tom Van Dyke, Hom-Lay Wang, Arie-Jan van Winkelhoff, and Moderator, Daniel van Steenberghe.

These experts were invited by Nobel Biocare on the basis of their interest in the subject and publication record. Since tens of millions of patients now have oral implants, there is an increasing awareness of the need to ensure their longevity by maintaining stable marginal bone. A hot subject today, this issue is much discussed in the world of dental implants.

After circulating their review papers among themselves, and then meeting for two days of candid exchanges atKarolinska Institutet in Stockholm last fall, the group formulated a set of consensus guidelines, both preventive and therapeutic. They updated their manuscripts and the papers have now been published as a special supplement to the European Journal of Oral Implantology

This Europerio 7 will allow you to hear what the working group has to say about the key clinical issues. Questions will be entertained from the audience as well as via online submission.
