There are several hot topic s in the surgical phases of implant treatment. A group of experts will be challenged by specific questions asked by the chairmen and will provide answers based on the evidence and on their experience. What do we know about flapless surgery? Is it really beneficial? What is the ideal depth of insertion of the implants? How should we deal with uneaven crest or with a periodontally compromised tooth adjacent to the planned implant position? When do we really need extraoral bone harvesting for our augmentation? With simplified surgical reconstructive approach do we still need an expert in bone augmentation in our team? What are the indications to immediate implants? What about the esthetic outcome with immediate implants? This session is designed as a debate with an open discussion between the experts and the chairmen. The use of voting devices will help the audience to actively participate.
