“Magic of leading digital dentistry”: 2024 Osstem World Meeting in Seoul

Mon. 11. March 2024


SEOUL, South Korea: Osstem Implant is extending a cordial invitation to over 1,500 dentists from 30 countries for the 2024 Osstem World Meeting, a global dental academic symposium set to take place on 27 and 28 April in Seoul. Under the theme of “Magic of leading digital dentistry”, lectures, live surgical demonstrations and hands-on courses will showcase advanced digital technologies and their application, demonstrated through a variety of pertinent clinical cases, all at one event.

Osstem has curated a line-up of distinguished speakers from several nations. Under the guidance of four moderators, 13 dental experts from nine countries—South Korea, Japan, the US, Canada, Switzerland, Italy, Turkey, New Zealand and Poland—will give lectures and conduct live surgical sessions.

On 27 April, four hands-on training courses and one prosthodontics seminar will be offered at Osstem’s Central Research Institute in Seoul. The first presenter, Dr Rajiv Rajpal, a New Zealand-based specialist oral surgeon, will discuss guided bone regeneration for hard- and soft-tissue management around immediately placed implants. Dr Brijesh Patel from the US will then explore the latest techniques and materials for the minimally invasive treatment of atrophic maxilla. Notably, he will offer advice on how to use CBCT to help plan a predictable sinus lift.

Next, Dr Nicolas Widmer from Switzerland will present a lecture intriguingly titled “OneCAS, one love: Why every implantologist falls in love with the OneCAS Kit”. He will provide a guide to using the OneCAS Kit, a specialised maxillary sinus surgery kit for OneGuide, which is Osstem’s latest digital implantation tool. He will discuss precautions for its use and troubleshooting techniques. His presentation will aim to demonstrate how the use of the OneCAS Kit will benefit patients thanks to increased precision, enhanced predictability and reduced invasiveness.

Dr Łukasz Zadrożny, an adjunct professor at the Medical University of Warsaw in Poland, will then cover a digital protocol applicable across various clinical scenarios, from single-tooth to full-arch immediate loading for edentulous patients. He will also discuss the immediate loading of a temporary abutment with a 3D-printed temporary crown. Finally, Dr Se-Woong Kim from South Korea will lead an educational seminar on implant prosthetic design for long-term stability around peri-implant tissue.

Those who complete the hands-on courses on 27 April will be provided with a complimentary lunch at Osstem’s headquarters. That afternoon, they will head to COEX, a convention centre in Samseong-dong in Seoul, to watch the Osstem World Night show featuring K-pop stars.

On 28 April, six lectures on digital dentistry are scheduled for four sessions at COEX. The specific lecture titles are as follows:

  • “Full-guided implant placement for edentulous patients using digital technology”
  • “Achieving immediacy in every case”
  • “Changes in hard- and soft-tissue management patterns due to OneGuide surgery”
  • “Single-tooth implant treatment in the maxillary aesthetic region: Tradition meets digital”
  • “Multiple implant placement using OneGuide”
  • “Immediate functional loading in all indications, from single missing tooth to total edentulous patients”.

Live surgical demonstrations will be presented in the third session on 28 April. Prof. Yong-Dae Kwon from Kyung Hee University School of Dentistry in South Korea and Prof. Jae-Young Kim from Seoul National University College of Dentistry in South Korea will walk attendees through the full process of implant placement and immediate restoration over the course of 80 minutes.

Those who complete the lectures at the 2024 Osstem World Meeting will be awarded continuing education credits (professional development points), the education provider being recognised by the Academy of General Dentistry’s Program Approval for Continuing Education in the US and certified by the CPD Certification Service in Europe. On-site simultaneous interpretation services in English, Chinese and Russian will be available for all sessions on 28 April, and sessions will be livestreamed in Korean, English and Chinese on DenALL TV and YouTube.

Attendees also have the opportunity to participate in the tour programme, starting on 25 April and running until 29 April. During this time, they can take part in guided tours of the facilities and the product display hall at the Central Research Institute, in addition to arranged social gatherings and visits to sites of interest. Over 1,100 dentists from various countries, including China, Thailand, Japan, Canada, Australia, Germany and the US, have already signed up for this tour programme.
