Lists 13 Snippets From The ADI National Forum Lectures Share Tweet Published 3 months ago on 11th December 2017 By Arjun Varma A few weeks ago I had the eye-opening experience of listening to speakers at the Association of Dental Implantology’s National Forum. In UK dental schools, implantology isn’t a huge part of our curriculum so before the conference I really didn’t know what to expect. This year the conference was held in Manchester. Topics ranged from the future of implant digital workflows, tackling peri-implantitis, to the latest bone regeneration materials. Below are a few of the take home messages I got from listening to the speakers at the event! 1. Implants are going to become a much more mainstream part of general dentistry over the next decade. 2. Shifts in patient expectations mean that implant dentistry can be life changing, especially for patients with orofacial deformities. 3. Implant designs are becoming more and more in the hands of dentists. 4. Future implant coatings could reduce incidences of peri-implantitis. 5. Periodontitis and peri-implantitis have overlapping, but different, pathogens detected in pockets, meaning targeted antimicrobial therapy could be key in the treatment of peri-implantitis. 6. Digital workflows and guided surgery are making implant dentistry more predictable and less stressful for dentists. 7. Dynamic navigation could be the future with further enhanced accuracy when placing implants. 8. 3D printing and CBCT are moving into dental practices more and more. 9. Looking at failure cases are key in becoming better clinicians. 10. As research for slow drilling protocols develop, it could become more and more common in the future. 11. Bone expansion techniques mean that primary stability can be achieved in patients with lower bone levels. 12. A new technique of osseodensification can result in a higher bone volume and higher quality bone. 13. The antimicrobial properties of graphene could mean it has a huge future in dentistry.
