Dear Colleagues

Dear Colleagues

The three-country congresses held in a rotation system since 1999, have been remarkable not only due to the logistical demands for the organisers but also by the professional and human interaction of all involved. Lively and regular transborder contact between the individual specialist associations was established and remains to this day the impulse for exciting collaboration. Even if we, as a German-speaking professional association with mutual interests, can share many common viewpoints, general cultural differences within the developments in Germany, Austria and Switzerland also account for different characteristics and divergent approaches. These differing approaches require all those involved to show understanding, respect and a certain amount of tolerance and find a synthesis, a common denominator, and in this way allow synergies to flow, which facilitate collaboration and continually motivate with new ideas. An example of this was the call to establish an institutional platform for protagonists of a young generation within the associations with the intention of refreshing and extending the views of the board, which has already been in office for many years. In this way impulses will not only extend beyond national borders but also lead to integral approaches within our own generations. It is self-evident that the respective young generations will then interact with new ideas.

DGI – SGI – ÖGI:
joint activities,
symbol for cooperation

At the beginning of May 2011 the Austrian Society of Implantology (ÖGI) invited 40 “young” scientists from Austrian hospitals and practices to an innovative conference in Saalfelden, Austria, on the topic of “Implantology 2020” and analyzed and discussed future challenges. Within the framework of interactive workshops the ÖGI committee organized two dynamic days, the aim of which was to provide an opportunity for young “implantologists” to network. The main focus of the conference was to promote young implantologists and the future activity of the ÖGI. Provocative questions and interesting topics covering all aspects of implantology and the future of implantological training and advanced training were discussed at a national level by prosthodontists, maxillofacial surgeons, periodontists and oral surgeons. The meeting of the ÖGI was mainly a powerful signal that young and “older” scientifically active clinicians and practitioners from all over Austria were coming together. Due in particular to the interaction between traditional implantological schools of thought and new, innovative approaches it proved to be appropriate to extend our implantological horizons in the areas of training and advanced training, future trends as well as challenges and demands regarding patients and operators. As a result, a junior delegate was appointed to the ÖGI committee to implement new ideas and to look after the concerns of young implantologists.

Put down new roots for the sake of safety and patient confidence

Put down new roots for the sake of safety and patient confidence

Implant survival rates of well over 90 percent over a period of ten years are a clear sign of success. Do we not have every reason to be satisfied? There must be some areas in (dental) medicine that are envious of such treatment results. Should we have any concerns about the routine use of implants, for example also in general dental practice?
