The NVOI proudly announces that its major Spring Congress 'Implants Are Forever' is scheduled to take place on Friday 27 March 2015. The Reehorst in Ede is providing the appropriate venue for this biennial event.
Diamonds are forever. Is this saying mutatis mutandis applicable for oral implantology. Will oral implants be Bonded with us forever? To answer this question we asked MI6, the British
Secret Intelligence Service, to help us out. They will send Norton, Michael Norton, who has a Bond with our discipline. In two sessions he will, in British style, provide insight into a number of challenging missions to give implants eternal life.
In the first briefing, Norton will shed light on surgical techniques and the planning and timing for a successful replacement of double teeth in the aesthetic zone at the same time. During the second briefing it will be seen that not every implantological mission is going to be successful. Michael Norton will tell how the weakest link may be eliminated.
Next a panel discussion will be held in which the young and the old implantologists will go together into the 'missions impossible' of implantology.
Without the gadgets and technical ingenuities of Q, Mr Bond would be nowhere. The same goes for the difficult problems that are to be solved by the creativity and insight of the dental technician. In a parallel session Stephan van der Made will show his qualities in this field. In the other session Joyce van der Horst, dental hygienist, and partner-in-crime, will use a non-surgical approach in her discussion of the peri-implantitis problems.
Are you ready for an enervating mission? We love to see you at the NVOI Spring Congress 2015 in Ede.
