XII European Workshop on Periodontology

Perio Workshop 2018, organised by the EFP in partnership with the Osteology Foundation, focused on the topic of bone regeneration.

The workshop, which involved 75 invited academics and researchers in periodontology and oral surgery, had three specific objectives:

  • To describe the biology of bone regeneration and the regenerative technologies used in bone-regenerative interventions in the oral cavity;
  • To evaluate the evidence on the efficacy of interventions aimed at treating extraction sockets;
  • To evaluate the evidence on the efficacy of interventions aimed at regenerating alveolar-ridge defects.

The workshop was chaired by Mariano Sanz (EFP) and Christer Dahlin (Osteology Foundation) and participants were organised into four working groups. Working group 1 (co-chairs Tord Berglundh and William Giannoble) covered biological factors involved in alveolar bone regeneration; Working group 2 (Mariano Sanz and Christer Dalhin) explored biomaterials and regenerative technologies; Working group 3 (Maurizio Tonetti and Ronald Jung) tackled treatment of the extraction sockets; and Working group 4 (Frank Schwarz and Søren Jepsen) considered the regeneration of alveolar-ridge defects.

Sponsored by Geistlich Pharma, Perio Workshop 2018 will take place from November 11 to 14, 2016 in La Granja de San Ildefonso, near Segovia in Spain, which has been the venue of recent editions of the EFP’s Perio Workshop. 

The workshop’s consensus papers and working documents will later be published in a special open-access supplement of the EFP’s Journal of Clinical Periodontology.
