Dr. Berglundh, Tord

DDS, Odont Dr. Professor

Dr. Tord Berglundh graduated (LDS) 1978 in Göteborg and received his certificate as specialist in Periodontics in 1992, the degree of Odont. Dr. (PhD) in 1993, the Docent (Associate professor) degree in 1994 and the Professor degree in 2002 from the Department of Periodontology, The Sahlgrenska Academy at University of Gothenburg, where he has served since 1981.

Presently, Dr. Berglundh is Professor at the Department of Periodontology, The Sahlgrenska Academy at University of Gothenburg and the Head of the Periodontal Research Laboratory. He is Associate Editor of Clinical Oral Implants Research and serves as a referee in several other journals.

Dr. Berglundh has produced about 160 scientific publications within the field of dental implants, periodontology, immunology, tissue integration and regeneration. The studies on implants have included the use of different implant systems, compromised sites and diagnosis/treatment of peri-implantitis lesions.

Implant therapy – strategies, difficulties and risks

Course outline:
Implant therapy in periodontally compromised subjects
Bone response to functional and immediate load
Abutment materials and connection to implants
Biological width

Clinical and histopathological characteristics of periimplantitis lesions.
Prevalence of peri-implantitis
Risks for peri-implantitis
Treatment of peri-implantitis.


In a recent systematic review it was reported that survival of teeth in well-maintained subjects appeared to be higher than that of implants. In the presentation clinical cases and data from long-term follow-up of subjects treated for severe chronic periodontitis will be demonstrated. Recent data indicate that the outcome of implant therapy is different in periodontally compromised subjects. The specific characteristics of periodontitis susceptible subjects will be illustrated and the influence of periodontitis susceptibility on decision-making in treatment planning will be discussed. Bone loss around implant was for many years considered to be the result of load. The effect of load on marginal bone level changes has, however, recently been questioned. In the presentation bone response to functional load at implants will be presented and radiographic bone level changes assessed from implant installation, abutment connection and the start of functional load will be reported. Results from a new controlled study on immediate loading on implants used in single tooth replacement will also be presented.

New definitions on peri-implant diseases were proposed in the European Workshop on Periodontology in 2008. Thus, the definition and diagnosis of peri-implant mucositis and peri-implantitis as well as the current knowledge related to the prevalence of the diseases will be presented. Data from clinical and experimental studies will be reported and the clinical, radiographic and histological characteristics of peri-implantitis lesions will be demonstrated and important diagnostic criteria will be discussed in relation to periodontitis at teeth. New data on treatment of peri-implantitis will be presented. The influence of implant surface roughness on the progression and treatment of peri-implantitis will be discussed.


What Practitioners Say...

Over recent years I have attended a number of seminars and hands on courses run by Dental Events. I have never been disappointed with the quality of presenters whom have been brought to Australia. These clinicians are carefully chosen to be relevant to today's cutting edge dentistry and changing philosophies.

Examples of stellar clinicians and presenters are Pascal and Michele Magne and Didier Dietschi.

I always look forward to the next program Dental Events will organise, being confident that the chosen clinician will be of the highest quality and relevant to modern dental practice.
