What Works and What Doesn’t

Providing clinicians with cutting edge information on the surgical, technical and restorative aspects of contemporary implant dentistry was the aim of the ITI Congress Australasia which was held in Sydney. Run under the title “Reality bites”, the 285 participants learned about real-world clinical situations: what works and what doesn’t, how to manage complications that might arise and how to avoid the pitfalls of the complex case.

The two-day congress was divided into four sessions: “Reality in the real world – What can be achieved?”, “Reality check – Are implant restorations always successful?”, “Reality in control: Selecting and planning cases to achieve optimal outcomes” and “Reality bites – Implant complications and their management”.

“We had a range of excellent local speakers and were very happy to have Nicola Zitzmann (University of Basel, Switzerland) and Hans-Peter Weber (Tufts University, USA) come to Sydney”, commented Lisa Heitz-Mayfield, Chair of the ITI Section Australasia. The speakers provided the audience with useful insights into how to get the best possible outcomes for their patients. “The audience especially appreciated the practical approach of the congress and enjoyed the program and interaction with colleagues very much”, said Heitz-Mayfield.
