Baltic Ossoeintegration Academy (BOA) together with the Lithuanian University of Health Sciences (LSMU) and Universities from Europe and USA is organizing Consensus Conference devoted to the topic of Post-extraction bone remodeling and alveolar ridge preservation.
Number of these experts will be involved in this consensus process. Therefore, the Conference will take a place in Kaunas, Lithuania, at "Park Inn Kaunas" hotel Conference Center, on 7 September, 2016.
The mission for the faculty of Consensus Conference is to revisit the available scientific literature and update the existing knowledge regarding:
1. Biological aspects of tooth extraction, socket healing and indications for socket preservation
- Areas of interest: Biological processes after tooth extraction (atraumatic tooth extraction, extraction socket healing, post extraction alveolar ridge remodeling). Extraction sockets morphological classification and rationale for socket preservation after tooth extraction.
2. Extraction socket preservation methods
- Areas of interest: Extraction socket preservation with or without membranes, soft tissue influence on post-extraction alveolar ridge preservation. Extraction socket preservation using different bone grafts. Extraction socket preservation using growth factors and stem cells. Dental implant outcomes in grafted sockets (bone-to-implant contact, etcetera).
Two working groups will be formed by invitation only. Chairman and each working group members will identify a number of clinically relevant questions suitable for consensus discussion. Literature review will be performed and each group will discuss and reach agreement on the questions previously chosen. The recommendations from each group will be then presented to the full panel of experts and discussed, and a general consensus will be reached. A consensus statement on research evidence and best practice in that field and a list of clinical recommendations including list of recommendations for future research - will be developed and published in Journal of Oral & Maxillofacial Research ( Oral presentations will be delivered during special sessions of BOA and LSMU Congress.
