Lecture Title: New insights in periodontal microbiology: from pathogenic to dysbiotic

The evolution of concepts on periodontal microbiology have changed with the evolution of microbiological
methods over time. The advent of molecular technologies to the analysis of the periodontal microbiome is
leading to an expanded repertoire of putative periodontal pathogens and the use of next-generation
sequencing has enabled the identification of multiple non-cultivable microorganisms whose significance
still needs to be elucidated. Similarly, the study of microbial communities as biofilms has facilitated the
understanding of the defence and pathogenic mechanisms of the oral microbiome and its interaction with
the host defences. In this presentation, the new concepts of symbiosis and dysbiosis as key mechanisms
in health and periodontal disease will be discussed, as well as the role of the so-called keystone

Lecture Title: Immediate Implants. From myth to reality

This surgical protocol has gained important attention in implant dentistry due to its clear advantages in
terms of patient’s preference and possible enhanced tissue reconstructive and aesthetic results. Until
recently, however, we did not count with the scientific evidence of the biological behaviour of dental
implants inserted in fresh extractions sockets, as well as their impact in the alveoli bony walls. In this
presentation we shall review the experimental and clinical data demonstrating the efficacy and the limits of
this surgical protocol, what will enable us to discuss its clinical indications, as well as its main limitation
