The DGOI Curriculum Implantology has been an export hit for many years. In more than six countries, young dentists start their journey in oral implantology with this structured advanced training – in Morocco as well. On 11th and 12th of October 2019, the last course module with the final examination was on the program. Therefore Prof. Dr. Fred Bergmann, Past-President of the DGOI, travelled to Agadir. He examined the participants together with Dr.Ali Elmalih from the International University of Agadir (Universiapolis), head of the Conjoint DGOI Curriculum that was presented to the young dentists. The result: All the young dentists successfully passed the examination – congratulations.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
Another highlight was the lecture of Prof.Bergmann. He gave a summary of the current literature, which shows success rates in modern implantology with more than 90 % in a 10-year follow-up in terms of function and esthetics. What is necessary to realize this success rate in daily routine? Bergmann gave detailed answers to this question. 3D diagnostics for a precise surgical planning with the possibility of guided implant placement on the one hand and individual biologically integrated superstructures based on a CAD/CAM workflow on the other hand are the basis for current treatment concepts. Especially in cases with compromised bone situations with horizontal and vertical atrophy the use of new piezoelectric technologies enables us to improve bone in a patient-friendly way. Atraumatic augmentation comes together with the use of fibrin membranes and growth factors from the patient’s blood. The concept is rounded off by anatomical implant designs that are adapted to the individual bone level. Split flap procedures improve the healing of the soft tissue. Biologically orientated, virtually planned and CAM-fabricated superstructures are the key to long-term tissue preservation. In the Maghreb, further conjoint curricula will be launched next year in collaboration with the DGOI.
