Piezo surgery & implantology workshop in Macedonia
On the 9th and 10th of April W&H partner and distributor Oral Estetik Trejd Dooel and Area Manager Roland Wichmann organized the first theoretical and practical workshop on the topic of piezo surgery and implantology in Skopje (Macedonia). During the two day event lectures and hands-on trainings were in focus. Under the specialist supervision of Dr. Branimir Kirilov and Dr. Venci Karapeev 24 workshop participants had the chance to discover the benefits of piezo surgery and the surgical devices from W&H. Moreover, live demonstrations gave the visitors plenty of opportunity to test out the surgical instruments and devices for themselves.
Learning from renowned users
The first day of the event was dedicated to theoretical and practical workshops. First Dr. Branimir Kirilov, specialist for oral and maxillofacial surgery, provided the participants with insights into the sinus anatomy. He explained the techniques of sinus lift procedures by emphasizing the great advantages of piezo surgery sinus lift compared to classical approaches and shared his practical experiences with the participants. In the second half of the first day the workshop participants had the chance to perform a sinus lift and harvest bone graft on their own by using the W&H Piezomed and its innovative tips.
The dentists were able to experience all the benefits of piezo surgery, like how to perform minimally invasive, rapid and precise procedures. Thanks to this, patients not only profit from a high postoperative comfort but also from a better and faster healing process. Another focus of the workshop was immediate implantation. Using the GBR procedure (guided bone regeneration) and the W&H Implantmed as well as surgical contra-angle handpieces, the participants could practice the placement of implants in an efficient and simple way by using the W&H surgical devices.
Special highlights on the agenda were two live surgeries done by Dr. Venci Karapeev in his private dental office at the Karadent Dental Center on the second day. On a TV screen the participants followed the procedures of a piezo sinus lift and an immediate implantation on two patients. The event offered expert knowledge in the field of dental surgery and valuable inputs for day-to-day clinical practice at the same time. Thanks to the interactive nature of the event dentists from Macedonia had the opportunity for learning from renowned users. Thanks to the support of the team from Oral Estetik Trejd Dooel and W&H Area Manager Roland Wichmann the event could take place successfully for the first time in this Southeastern European country.
