Torsten Jemt: Clinical problems in implant dentistry. How should we interpret the results?
- Interpretation of scientific data in the field of complications
- Difference between scientific data and clinical reality
- Biologics around implants - give the bone the chance to survive. General session.
- Nobel Biocare New York Global Symposium 2016
Many clinical follow-up studies are performed to report various complications and failures that can be observed for different techniques or patient groups. These studies can be designed in different ways which has an impact on the results that are revealed. This presentation will discuss how clinical data on complications in implant dentistry may differ depending on how data is collected. Observations on different clinical complications will be used to exemplify the role of patients included and the study design, and the learning objective is to increase the understanding between basic clinical research and clinical routine practice.
Dr. Torsten Jemt graduated from the University of Gothenburg, Sweden, in 1975, and completed his residency program in prosthodontics at the same university in 1982.
