2021 IADR/AADR/CADR General Session

The 99th General Session & Exhibition of the IADR was to be held in conjunction with the 50th Annual Meeting of the American Association for Dental Research and the 45th Annual Meeting of the Canadian Association for Dental Research, from July 21-24, 2021 as a Virtual Experience.

The recordings in this library from the meeting are a selection of the science that was to be presented as part of the General Session. These recordings give you the opportunity to participate in the meeting and hear from leading researchers. The recordings include IADR Distinguished Lecture Series speakers, the IADR Academy and symposia from a collection of scientific groups and networks.

This session can be purchased as part of the full meeting recordings within the product bundles

Session Description 
Osseointegration refers to the direct structural and functional connection between living bone and the surface of a load-carrying implant. The indication for osseointegration therapy has been greatly expanded in recent years. However, also the number of failures have increased and seem to be intimately linked to the biology of the host bed. The present symposium will focus on the essential ultrastructural biological mechanisms governing the implant-bone healing.

Learning Objectives
  • To review the latest advances in the biological cascade of implant osseointegration.
  • To recognize the key role of the biological microenvironment on (alveolar) osseous healing.
  • To learn how to tailor therapies including bone regeneration or implant placement to the specific biological status.
