Are you looking to get in to implant dentistry and don’t know where to start?
Perhaps you are already placing or restoring implants but cannot find a suitable source of verifiable CPD to consolidate your portfolio?
Are you an experienced implant dentist looking to discuss cases, meet like-minded people and have access to a relevant and valuable source of evidence-based literature?
Is implant dentistry something that you find a little overwhelming and you are trying to find somewhere to dip a toe?
If you find yourself in any of these situations, then the Cornwall ITI study club is for you!
The International Team for Implantology is a huge organisation whose purpose is to disseminate evidence-based and best-practice information, guidance and helpful tips to clinicians and dental technicians. Each geographical region has a section which runs study clubs, courses, meetings and congresses. The ITI also publishes invaluable consensus statements which are put together by groups of specialists in their fields. They carry out systematic reviews of the literature and discuss the outcomes before publishing their results.
Being a member of the ITI allows you access to a wealth of online learning, forums, courses, congresses and ITI study clubs worldwide.
The ITI study club in Cornwall meets 4 times a year. The aim is to discuss evidence-based topics on all and any aspect of implant dentistry.
Paul is the Study Club Director for Cornwall, please contact him if you would like to have further information or visit www.iti.org . Meetings are usually held in the evening and each one qualifies for two hours of CPD. They are for Clinicians and Dental Technicians.
Recent topics have included clinical photography, implants restorations in the aesthetic zone, soft tissue management around implants, sinus augmentation, CBCT scans, augmentation avoiding onlay grafting,treatment planning and case discussions, which members find very rewarding.
Non ITI members are welcome to come to two ‘taster’ meetings before being asked to become a member. There are so many more benefits to becoming an ITI member in addition to our great local resource so please get in touch and come along. For further information please either get in touch.
Wenesday 20 September 2017 Joint Cornwall and Devon ITI study club event at Lanhydrock Hotel, Bodmin.
Contemporary Implant Dentistry with HP Weber
Current diagnostic, planning, surgical, and prosthodontic techniques in implant dentistry have enhanced the predictability and quality of treatment outcomes. Prosthodontically driven implant planning and placement are facilitated by the use of digital technology. Additionally, the indication specific application of different surgical protocols related to the timing of implant placement after tooth extraction or bone augmentation procedures in context with implant placement are important to enhance the predictability of the result. It is the purpose of this presentation to demonstrate current techniques on hand of various clinical scenarios and to assess their validity for improved outcomes based on the existing scientific and clinical evidence.
After this lecture, participants will
1) be familiar with current digital workflow options in implant dentistry
2) understand advantages and disadvantages of guided surgery
3) apply indication specific implant placement after tooth extraction
4) realize the short- and long-term risks resulting from inadequate implant placement
HP has also agreed to share with us his experiences in implant dentistry over a long and distinguished career. We will have the benefit of evidence and experience-based findings.
To have HP make it down to Cornwall is a really big deal! We hope that you be able to take advantage of this fantastic opportunity and make it along to the evening.

Setting up digitally in implant dentistry
This evening will aim to be an introduction to the digital aspects of implant dentistry. The pace of the evening will be set by the delegates present, so that we can get our heads around the many new principles, procedures and terminology involved in the digital world of dentistry.
We will aim to compete treatment planning, placement and restoration of a case, or cases, using a digital approach from start to finish.
Speakers for the evening will be Stephen Lusty and Paul McGannity, but please come along and contribute with your experiences and knowledge too.
