5 doctors presented their cases and MIS proudly announced three winners
(PRWEB) June 28, 2016
The first day of the 3rd MIS Global Conference included the Master Clinicians workshops in English and Spanish with world renowned practitioners sharing their most interesting cases.
During another highlight of this first day of the conference, more than 300 people attended the young clinicians' case competition session where 5 doctors presented their cases and MIS proudly announced three winners.
Out of the 49 cases submitted for review, the scientific committee, which included Professor Stefen Koubi, Professor Nitzan Bichacho, Dr. Eric Van Dooren and Professor Moshe Goldstein, chose the finalists out of which these 3 winners were ultimately chosen.
Chairing the event was Professor Gabi Chaushu, head of the Department of Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery at the Rabin Medical Center in Israel.
First place winner, Dr. Sophie Velghe from Belgium, presented her case "Analog Protocol of Individualizing the Soft Tissue Support Using the Original Root Fragments – Case Report", where she concluded that "The critical contour of the restoration influences the gingival margin level and zenith position. Copying the critical and subcritical contour from the natural tooth can optimize the clinical outcome by creating a better soft tissue profile."
The second place winner of the competition was Dr. Maria Ramos, also from Belgium. In her case, Dr. Ramos focused on "First Steps towards Digital Protocol of Individualizing the Soft Tissue Support Using a Printed Root". In her case study, Dr. Ramos concluded that "Management of anterior implant restorations demands a highly esthetic approach in order to obtain successful outcomes. The use of the V3 implant can help obtain better esthetic and long term results for implant-supported restorations."
Dr. Nelson Leon from Venezuela was the third place winner with his study on "Aesthetic Zone Management – The Socket Shield Technique". Dr. Leon presented his conclusions that "This technique represents an alternative in aesthetics procedures, maintaining hard and soft tissue architecture."
The runners-up were Dr. Dioracy Vicioso Martínez from the Dominican Republic and Dr. Enrique Runzer Colmenares from Peru.
