Humans are 50% microbial! These micro-organisms [the ‘human microbiome’] play a key role in our normal development and well-being. The mouth harbours the second most diverse collection of microbes inhabiting our body. This oral microbiome is natural and has a symbiotic relationship with us. The host provides a warm and nutritious habitat while the oral microbiome delivers important health benefits [the ‘good’].
However, this mutually beneficial relationship is fragile and susceptible to change. A substantial alteration to the oral environment or diet can drive shifts in the composition and activity of the oral microbiome, increasing the risk of disease [‘dysbiosis’]. In caries, acid-producing and acid-loving species predominate while periodontal diseases are associated with proteolytic, anaerobic and pro-inflammatory bacteria [the ‘bad’], some of which are defying microbiologists attempts to culture them [the ‘ugly’].
Understanding the delicate balance between the host and its microbiome is essential to developing new approaches to promote oral health.
Key learning aims, objectives and outcomes:
• Explain the role of human and oral microbiome in health [symbiosis].
• Discuss oral biofilms and the mouth as a microbial habitat
• Review contemporary views on the microbial aetiology of dental diseases [dysbiosis].
• Demonstrate how the principles of microbial ecology can both:
– explain the microbial shifts seen in the disease, and
– provide new strategies to maintain/promote oral health
Philip Marsh is Professor of Oral Microbiology at the School of Dentistry, University of Leeds, UK. He has published over 250 research papers and review articles and is co-author of a leading textbook on oral microbiology, now in its sixth edition.
He was the recipient of the ORCA-Rolex Award for Caries Research in 1991, the IADR Distinguished Science Award (Research in Dental Caries) in 1998, the Society for General Microbiology (UK) Colworth Prize Lecture Award for applied microbiology research in 2001, and received a Lifetime Achievement Award from the World Congress of Minimally Invasive Dentistry in 2008.
His research interests include dental biofilms and oral microbial ecology, especially the influence of environmental factors on the composition and activity of the oral microbiota. This interaction is fundamental to understand whether the relationship between the oral microbiota and the host will result in health (symbiosis) or disease (dysbiosis); these concepts are encapsulated in the ‘ecological plaque hypothesis’ which he proposed in the 1990s. He is interested in treatment approaches that can prevent disease while preserving the important beneficial functions of the resident oral microbiota.

This presentation will discuss how to introduce implants into your treatment planning so you can give the patients all their treatment options, as required by the GDC. The presentation will then discuss the difficulty of the case and when the practitioner should consider involving a mentor or referring to the case..
Finally, the presentation will show a variety of case histories; from the very simple case to the highly complex case. The main emphasis will be on how to do the very best treatment for your patient and how to keep yourself safe.
Key learning aims, objectives and outcomes:
The aim of this presentation is to introduce the modality of treatment “The Osseointegrated Implant” as an important consideration when treatment planning.
The objective is to make sure that delegates understand the complexity of a case and what education is needed when proceeding with this treatment modality.
I would like to see that the outcome of this presentation will make the surgeon more aware of their responsibilities, and learn to do the very best for their patient and at the same time keeping themselves safe.

To create highly aesthetic and 100% individual restorations, the notion of predictability and 3D virtual reproduction of the patient face are core concepts for effective digital workflows. DT Sergio Polisi will explain innovative technologies for the digital acquisition of the patient’s oral situation and physiognomy, which can be captured and imported in the software in a 1:1 ratio – that is, with no loss of precious information. By showing real patient cases, he will describe how the treatment team can improve patient satisfaction through workflows that enable a reduction of chair-side appointments and the realistic preview of the final prostheses, for 100% individual restorations. Within this framework, new 3D virtual face animation and articulation concepts for a faster design of implant-supported Toronto bridges will also be outlined.
• Recognise the importance of digital patient diagnostics
• Identify the advantages of a 3D virtual patient-based treatment planning for 100% individual and aesthetic restorations
• Evaluate new working concepts for faster and smart design of implant-supported Toronto bridges
