The Grand Hotel Principe di Piemonte of Viareggio, renowned venue for corporate events, hosted the 4th International Meeting of the Tuscan Stomatological Institute from January 27th to 28th. Of the more than 350 participants (mostly dentists or doctors specialized in dentistry, plus a share of doctors in dental hygiene), about 10% came from abroad: the twenty speakers, in particular, came from Italy, Switzerland, Sweden, Germany, Spain and the United States, and were experts in the peri-implant diseases. The title was Not only peri-implantitis: the peri-implant diseases – diagnosis, prevention, treatment.
Prof. Ugo Covani, Director of the Tuscan Stomatological Institute: "Over the last year, the emerging problem of peri-implantitis soon became one of the "hot topics" of implantology. With the term "peri-implantitis" one defines different pathologies, both from a preventive and a diagnostic-therapeutic point of view. The choice of title is meant to emphasize the plurality of events that may affect the interface between the implant and the hard and soft tissues". The exponential increase of dental implants, which have long supplanted the old "bridges", has raised the possibility of infectious problems (however limited to 7-8% of cases). The implant must get integrated into the patient’s mouth, exposing him to the risk of a number of diseases that must first of all be prevented and then, when occurring, promptly diagnosed and treated.
It is the fourth edition held at the Grand Hotel Principe di Piemonte, which for the second year in a row has been involved not only for housing but also as a conference venue.

The gala dinner was held in the Butterfly room.
