SEOUL, South Korea: Osstem Implant has announced that it successfully held the inaugural Digital Dentistry Contest and the Osstem Meeting 2021 Seoul from 27 to 28 November. Under the theme “Future of digital dentistry”, the event featured live surgery and a variety of clinical lectures, which were streamed live to 26 countries and viewed more than 82,000 times.
There was strong growth in participation, and online streaming was adopted with great enthusiasm. Over the two days of the event, more than 82,000 online views were recorded, including more than 24,000 views from dentists in other parts of the world. Since dentists in many countries would have faced difficulties in viewing the event in real-time owing to time differences, this viewing record presents a remarkable achievement.
Surveys conducted by Osstem Implant AIC, which organised the event this year, and subsidiaries in Asia found that over 2,000 dentists in neighbouring countries with relatively smaller time differences with South Korea, such as China, Japan, India, Thailand and Malaysia, had registered for online participation in advance.
The study on functional and aesthetic facial reconstruction with 3D-printed implants won the grand prize in the oral session of the Digital Dentistry Contest held on the first day of the event. In the poster session, the clinical study on the accuracy of guided implant surgery using TRIOS, OneGuide and mini-screws on edentulous patients received the grand prize.
At the main event of the Osstem Meeting 2021 Seoul, which took place on the second day, a number of prominent personalities, including Dr Cheng Zheng, member of the standing committee in the Chinese Stomatological Association’s private management chapter, and Prof. Ushakov Andrei Ivanovich of Moscow State University of Medicine and Dentistry in Russia, as well as representatives of the South Korean dental profession, congratulated the organisers.
Under the main theme, “Future of digital dentistry”, and sub-theme, “Collaboration of digital and conventional surgery”, the meeting featured clinical lectures and live surgery, the highlight of the event.
Led by two directors of dental clinics in South Korea, a team of surgeons demonstrated the procedures for the placing of an implant in the premaxilla and immediate loading in an edentulous patient under the theme “Full-arch implant rehabilitation with OneGuide system”.
The OneGuide system is an advanced digital guide that supports surgeries tailored to individual patients by creating a simulation of mock implant surgery based on data from patient CT scans and placing the surgical template in the oral cavity. During the live surgery performed on the second day, the safety and efficiency of OneGuide from Osstem Implant in surgery was once again demonstrated by the placing of an implant in the premaxilla and the immediate loading of the prosthesis within 1 hour.
In addition to presentations by South Korean speakers, Dr Marco Tallarico and Dr Andrea Ricci from Italy gave online lectures on digital dentistry, titled “New challenges in guided surgery” and “How digital dentistry has changed my prosthetic treatment planning”, respectively.
All lectures delivered online at the Osstem Meeting were simultaneously interpreted into five languages—Korean, English, Chinese, Japanese and Russian—and streamed live to 26 countries via Osstem Implant’s webcast platform DENALL TV and YouTube. The webcast of the event was viewed in real-time and anyone can view videos of the presentations and lectures of the first Digital Dentistry Contest and Osstem Meeting 2021 Seoul via DENALL TV in the language of his or her choice at any time without logging in.
The Osstem Meeting is a dental symposium organised by Osstem Implant biannually in the first and second half of the year, both online and offline, since 2004. Since 2008, Osstem Implant has been organising the Osstem Meeting for local dentists to share clinical knowledge and information in the countries where the company has offices, and it is recognised as a global symposium in dentistry.
