ITI Congress Canada: Analyzing the risks and benefits of emerging technologies

This year’s ITI Congress Canada in Toronto has just come to an end. Close to 250 professionals in implant dentistry attended the congress that undertook to analyze the risks and benefits of emerging technologies in implant dentistry and scrutinize them against the backdrop of current best practices. The two-day congress included top-class lectures given by specialists from Canada and abroad.

The first day was devoted entirely to Urs Belser and Daniel Buser (Switzerland) who presented an evidence-based rationale for early implant placement and contour augmentation, handling of esthetic failures, fixed implant restorations in the esthetic zone, treatment planning principles for the esthetic zone, the use of provisionals on final esthetics, and more. The second day brought together Canadian clinicians from across the country and beyond to discuss topics ranging from technology transfer to each and every step along the digital workflow. For the first time, the ITInet Global Forum came into play for the question period after each session.

“We were extremely gratified by the response of the attendees, all of whom were very satisfied knowing that we had provided them with a superb encapsulation of emerging technologies, put them under the microscope, and provided the tools to evaluate them”, said Robert Carmichael, Education Delegate of the ITI Section Canada.

The ITI Congress Canada was also the perfect setting for the presentation of the André Schroeder Research Prize 2012 to Dr. Cornelius von Wilmowsky, a PhD dentist, oral surgeon and researcher at Friedrich Alexander University of Erlangen-Nuremberg, Germany. The ITI’s 13,000th Member, Dr. Adam Kaplan, was also welcomed during the congress.
