KARACHI: The International Team for Implantology (ITI) Study Club recently launched its Karachi chapter, to promote the understanding and application of implant dentistry through education, research, and networking opportunities.

The local chapter of the professional association is led by directors Dr Ali Sadiq and Dr Fahad Umer.

The inaugural event held at Marriott was moderated by Dr Taimur Khalid and featured presentations by two implant dentistry experts, Dr Syed Murtaza Raza Kazmi and Dr Humayun Kaleem Siddiqui.

Dr Kazmi’s presentation focused on the ‘ALL ON 4’ protocol, a treatment option for the patients who have lost multiple teeth or are edentulous.

Sharing some of the cases he handled, to illustrate the effectiveness of this protocol, Dr Kazmi provided insights into the surgical and prosthetic aspects of the procedure.

Dr Siddiqui’s presentation, on the other hand, focused on medical emergencies and implants.

Discussing various types of emergencies that can occur during implant surgery, such as bleeding, he emphasised the importance of pre-treatment planning for the patients with comorbidities.

Dr Siddiqui provided insights into appropriate management of medical emergencies occurring during implant surgery and stressed the need for a well-equipped emergency kit and trained staff.

The event was attended by a diverse group of dental professionals, including general practitioners, specialists and postgraduate residents, who had an opportunity to put queries, share their experiences, and network with their peers.

The club plans to organise three events annually, featuring renowned experts, besides hands-on workshops for its members.

The event was a great success, providing an excellent platform for dental professionals to expand their knowledge, connect with their peers, and stay updated on the latest trends and developments in implant dentistry.
