ethoss queens

The charming surroundings of the exclusive Queen’s Tennis Club, London, hosted the third ethoss® UK course on the 21st January. It proved to be a great success with over 40 clinicians attending with delegates also attending from Spain, France and Belgium.

The event was hosted by Dr Peter Fairbairn, visiting Professor of Department of Periodontology and Implant Surgery at the University Of Detroit Mercy School Of Dentistry. Peter, described the latest advances in Guided Bone Regeneration and discussed his experience of using ethoss® in over 1000 cases, relating a protocol that has given him excellent and consistent clinical results.

Dr Michael Ainsworth (BDS, UK) showcased an interesting technique using sutures to tent the soft tissues around ethoss® grafted sites. Dr Alaa Khadiri (DDS, Morocco) described his experiences with different graft materials (some good and some bad) and explained how ethoss® has changed his perception about what can be achieved for his patients.

The presentations were well received by all of the delegates and were followed by a detailed and extensive Q&A session. This was followed by lunch and a practical session giving all the delegates the opportunity to get first-hand experience with handling ethoss®.

Since its launch, ethoss® courses have continually proved to be the most popular events that Swallow has ever promoted. More events in London, the Midlands Southwest and North of England are being organised for later in 2017.

ethoss® has been developed by clinicians for clinicians. It has been designed to work with the human body as it heals. Using only bio-compatible synthetic materials to help true host bone regeneration it provides a stable graft which is fully absorbed to be replaced by the patient’s own bone. It also has a built-in membrane function. This means no additional collagen membrane is needed. For more information visit www.ethoss.co
