The ITI World Symposium, a distinguished event in implant dentistry, is a platform where groundbreaking research meets practical application. Held every two years, this gathering brings together experts from academia and clinical practice. Esteemed institutions like the University of Michigan, University of Berne, and Harvard University share their latest findings while skilled clinicians demonstrate new techniques. This unique blend of academic and practical expertise ensures attendees receive high-quality education backed by current evidence.  Dr. Derek Gatta, a Board-Certified Prosthodontist and the co-founder of RiseWell, one of the most renowned dentists in Boca Raton, had the exceptional privilege of gaining valuable insights into the latest advancements and cutting-edge techniques in dental aesthetics at this prestigious event.

A Truly Unique Program

The ITI World Symposium offers a dynamic opportunity for the most influential experts to converge to share knowledge, exchange ideas, and advance the practice of implant dentistry, fostering a sense of global community among dental professionals.

On the first day, one important topic discussed was achieving long-term success with different implant timing protocols. This session discussed the pros and cons of immediate implants, compared immediate and delayed implants in terms of long-term outcomes in the esthetic zone, and helped dentists understand the choices between immediate and delayed implant placement for each patient.

During the subsequent days of the symposium, speakers covered a range of other vital topics, including:

  • “Future of Dental Implantology Set with Patient-First Strategy” by France Lambert.
  • “Effective Treatment Modalities for Patients with Severely Atrophied Maxilla: ITI Zygoma Consensus; Zygoma Biomechanics Explained” by Edmond Bedrossian.
  • “A Review of the Surgical Techniques Available and the Requirements for Atraumatic Soft-Tissue Handling” by Daniel Thoma.
  • “Biological Factors in Dentistry: What is the Evidence?” by Peer Kämmerer.

These sessions provided attendees with further insights into primary areas of interest and advancements in implant dentistry, enriching their understanding and enhancing their professional skills.

An Atmosphere of Inspiration

During the ITI World Symposium, attendees enjoyed a premium and immersive event experience. They had the opportunity to indulge in the culinary delights of Singapore with full catering, featuring live chefs preparing a mix of Chinese, Indian, and European cuisine. The event also included an industry exhibition with selected exhibitors. A 360-degree LED video wall kept attendees updated and engaged, while ample seating options provided opportunities to relax, socialize, and unwind. The entire event area was themed around Singapore, allowing attendees to enjoy an ambiance geared toward this Asian metropolis, complete with iconic landmarks like the famous Singapore “supertrees.”

Meeting Old, Making New Connections

The ITI World Symposium was ideal for reconnecting with old friends, making new acquaintances, and re-establishing long-lost contacts. With over 4,000 professionals in attendance, the event provided a vibrant atmosphere for networking and collaboration. A mobile app facilitated the discovery of like-minded individuals and connections. Outside the plenary hall, ample venues were available for sharing a cup of coffee or tea. A highlight of the symposium was the official Straumann party on Friday night, offering attendees the perfect opportunity to network in a relaxed and casual atmosphere or perhaps even on the dance floor!
