Mediterranean Dental Implant
Corfu', Greece, June 22-26,
It is a great honor to be able to present you this volume of Proceedings
of the Mediterranean Dental Implant Congress 2004.
The Mediterranean Dental Implant Congress 2004 was organized by an
International Organizing and Scientific Committee where colleagues from
countries around Mediterranean are participating, contributing greatly
to the purposes of this international come-together. I would like to
thank them once more for their efforts.
The Mediterranean Dental Implant Congress 2004 took place in Corfu. The
purpose of this congress is the exchange of scientific knowledge and
experience between the colleagues who are interested in implant
dentistry, coming not only from countries around the Mediterranean Sea,
but also from all over the world.
These proceedings present a small part of the scientific reports
presented at the Mediterranean Dental Implant Congress 2004, which took
place in Corfu/Greece from 22nd to 26th June 2004. Papers are printed in
alphabetical order according to the first author’s surname.
A very wide spectrum within implant dentistry is highlighted in
excellent contributions, raging from epithetic reconstruction, the role
of implants in orthodontic treatment, transition from teeth to implants,
alveolar distruction, condition of periimplant bone, piezosurgery,
immediate and early loading, digital volume tomography (DVT) and results
after using the osteotome technique. We are very grateful to all those
who submitted their scientific contribution to be printed in this volume
of proceedings. With their effort they made possible the publication of
This book will be read by those who participated at the congress but
would also be invaluable to any colleague who would like to be informed
with the latest development in implant dentistry.
It is a pleasure to extend my sincere thanks to all contributors and the
publishing company “Medimond-Monduzzi Editore International Proceedings
Division” who made this book possible.
