This first International Symposium, organized by Vita e Salute-San Raffaele University (Milan), aims to clarify the biological and clinical information on the management of periodontal and peri-implant soft tissues and the real needs of the different surgical techniques in the clinical practice.

This topic has become of great importance, not only for the obvious aesthetic implications, but also because of the influence that soft tissues might have in the inflammatory processes, mostly around implants.

This Symposium also clearly states the importance that our University gives to the evaluation and treatment of periodontal and peri-implant tissues, as the prevention of the diseases that may afflict them.

Surgical techniques are the protagonists, but it becomes increasingly clear that no surgical treatment can reach stable long term results is not followed by an accurate maintenance for the prevention of potential complications.

So the Symposium will offer to the Participants lectures on the biological rationale for treatment as well as presentations and discussions of the latest surgical techniques aimed to achieve stable results in the reconstruction of periodontal and peri-implant soft tissues.

We look forward to see in Milan, next February!
