Professors, lecturers and students from the area of Periodontology, coordinated by Dr José Nart, presented various projects and papers at the 59th edition of the annual conference organised by SEPA (the Spanish Society for Periodontology and Osseointegration). During the closing session of the conference, which is an important event for the professional community in the field of periodontology and oral health, the names of the winners in the six award categories were announced. The categories were: best oral hygiene poster, clinical poster and research poster, oral clinic paper, oral research paper presentation and presentation in video format.
Dr Nart’s team received five awards, in fact the Spanish teaching and research group was the one that received the most awards this year. The projects presented focused on the treatment of advanced or severe periodontitis, maintaining teeth that had been considered lost, the health of dental implants, avoiding bone loss in the surrounding area, and two new techniques, auto-transplantation and corticotomies or small incisions in the gum and bone to accelerate orthodontic treatment.
