In what is becoming a yearly tradition, SID2016 HELLO GBR at the Grand Intercontinental
Hotel on August 28th was a huge success. Focusing on ‘High Success, Evidence
Based, Long Standing, Less Stressed, Optimized GBR’ the symposium consisted
of several hours of lectures, case studies, and debates helping to improve everyone’s
clinical knowledge of GBR.
The organizing committee was headed by Dr. Gyu-Sung Cho (Yonsei University)
and met monthly to prepare the symposium. The other committee members were Dr.
MuGyeong Sung (Mokdong Dental), Dr. NamSik Oh (Inha University), Dr. DoYoung
Kim (Kim& Jeon Dental), Dr. NamYoon Kim (Kim NamYoon Dental), Dr. HyunJong
Kim (Gaya Dental), Dr. SunJae Kim (Gangnam Severance Hospital), Dr. JungChul
Park (Dankook University), Dr. JongHyuk Jung (Kyunghee University), Dr. SoonJung
Hwang (Seoul National University), and Dr. SungKyun Kim (Seoul National University).
The first 100 minute discussion consisted of Dr. UiWon Jung (Yonsei University)
and Dr. MuGyeong Sung speaking about short, narrow implants with GBR and ridge
splitting. During the discussion, Dr. SoonJung Hwang and Dr. SunJae Kim sat
on the panel, while Dr. JongHyuk Jung acted as moderator.
The next debate was Dr. DoYoung Kim, Dr. NamYoon Kim, and Dr. Yong-Deok Kim
discussing ways of dealing with complications during cases. Here, Dr. SungKyun
Kim moderated while Dr. GyuSung Cho, Dr. MuGyeong Sung, and Dr. NamSik Oh were
on the panel.
As in prior years, this year had aspects of electronic voting, allowing the
audience to state their perceptions immediate prior to and after the debate.
For one question, the speakers were so impressive, the audience changed its
opinion on how best to deal with a narrow ridge.
While the debates too place during the afternoon sessions, the morning sessions
were comprised of lectures. Section 1 had lectures titled “GBR Recipes for
Clinical Situations,” “Soft Tissue Management for GBR,” and “Is submerged
healing essential in GBR?” This section enabled participants to learn the GBR
basics. Section 2 had more advanced topics including “Maxillary Sinus, What
on Earth are you?”, “Innovative Design of Implant Cutting Edge,” and “The
Simplest and Easiest Method for Implant Impressions with the Bite Impression
SID2016 Clinical Poster awards
As in the previous year, dentists and dental students were asked to submit
their clinical posters to the committee, with prizes being awarded including:
Grand Prize, First Prize, and Excellence. This year’s winner was Dr. HyunJun
Jung from Yonsei Hill Dental. Five other participants received first prize and
10 were awarded for excellence. The winning posters will be compiled into a
book that will be released later this year.
Registration Fee Donation
Each year Shinhung charges the doctors a small fee to attend SID. All of
this is then donated to the 11 dental schools in Korea. SID2016 and the ATC
Implant Annual Meeting raised a total of KRW 41,420,000, all of which will be
used to help future students in their studies. Kyunghee University Dental Hospital
Director YoungKuk Park stated “This donation will be used for the development
of dental education.”
DV World and DV Supporters
In addition to the lectures, SID attendees have the opportunity to walk around
DV World and view all of the products Shinhung is currently offering. The LunaS,
SolaS, and Bite Impression Coping ensured the implant booth was constantly crowded.
Other products included the Shofu “DENTURE LINER,” the precious metal brand
GOLDENIAN, and the temporary aluminum crown SLU:CAP. The DV Supporters were
at all of these booths, giving the visitors the opportunity for a hands-on session
with an actual clinician. Each of the DV Supporters uses Shinhung products in
their practice and has the ability to explain its uses and advantages in true
