IAOMS Scientific Webinar Series

KLS Martin Group Celebrates 125 Years: A Tribute to OMF Surgery

The IAOMS and the IAOMS Foundation salute our Emerald Level Partner and on-going supporter, KLS Martin Group, as they celebrate their 125th Anniversary this year. 

In recognition of this landmark anniversary we have jointly developed a webinar series around OMF surgery which highlights the latest advancements in our surgical discipline along with some history of how it all started. The webinar series will consist of five scientific webinars running from August – December 2021. 

KLS Martin is one of the world leaders in the field of OMF surgery and has revolutionized the way surgeons in our specialty work. Their contributions to advancing the specialty include pioneering the manufacture of patient-specific implants and together with Prof. Champy, the scientific pioneer from Strasbourg, they developed the use of miniplate osteosynthesis in maxillofacial surgery and established it as the “gold standard”. Their long history of innovation began decades ago and continues today. It is our honor to celebrate this landmark anniversary along with them.

Template-Guided Mandibular Reconstruction – Innovative standardized vs. Patient-specific Approach presented by Dr. Marco Kesting (Germany) & Dr. Tony Morlandt (USA) and moderated by Dr. G.E. Ghali (USA)

Now Available On-Demand

Learn More About the Webinar 


This webinar will illustrate the whole development process of a standardized template-guided reconstruction system, beginning from the initial idea to the final implementation in patient treatment. It will address the indications and considerations necessary for a successful standardized template-guided reconstruction. The webinar features a clinical case to illustrate the intraoperative workflow and handling, while highlighting the key steps for a successful reconstruction with the ReconGuide system.

Learning Objectives:

1. Ideas, research, development and clinical implementation of a standardized template-guided reconstruction system.

2. Indications, limitations and surgical considerations for standardized template-guided mandibular reconstructions.

3. Intraoperative workflow of a template-guided reconstruction with the ReconGuide system.

Patient-Specific Solutions in Non-Augmentative Preprosthetic Restoration

Presented by Dr. Nils-Claudius Gellrich (Germany)

Now Available On-Demand

Learn More About the Webinar 


Digitization and rapid prototyping technologies have enabled a new non-augmentative preprosthetic surgical treatment approach. Preprosthetic Individual Patient Solutions (IPS®), unlike the old subperiosteal implants, these implants are additively manufactured from 3D imaging data and have a "one fit only" design with an unsurpassed primary stability due to rigid fixation. Pre prosthetic IPS Implants® are a new option for patients with atrophic jaws and jaw defects after ablative tumor treatment and post-traumatic and congenital jaw deformities. The course will introduce the innovation and report first experiences over four years from two centers.

Learning Objectives:

1.To show the range of indications for different methods for implant borne dental rehabilitation in severe cases.

2.To teach the planning procedure for Preprosthetic JPS Implants® step by step.

3.To learn about the design specifications of Preprosthetic JPS Implants® .

4.To learn about the whole portfolio of Pre prosthetic IPS Implants®: from implant to suprastructure.

5.To avoid, handle and solve complications.

6.To analyze 3D imaging properly and to evaluate the bony situation in combination with the individual soft-tissue situation together with the patient-specific co-morbidities.
