Welcome to IDS 2019
With this issue, EDI Journal gives a glimpse of new treatment methods, new forms of teamwork and some game changer in dentistry to be presented at the International Dental Show in Cologne in March 2019. In an overview EDI Journal provides information on the most important practice guidelines in implantology – made by the European Consensus Conference (EuCC) under the auspices of the BDIZ EDI. The papers can be obtained from this website. Among the most important guidelines: The Cologne ABC Risk Score and the Cologne Classification of Alveolar Ridge Defects (CCARD) as well as short, angulated and diameter-reduced implants. Under “Clinical Science” we show some current aspects of the use of bone block grafts and bone splitting.
