Achieving anterior implant esthetics is a challenging and demanding procedure. To create implant restorations with harmonious gingival contour that emulate nature is a fusion of science and art. Understanding the biologic and physiologic limitations of the soft and hard tissue will facilitate predictability in simple to complex esthetic situations.
This interdisciplinary presentation will integrate Orthodontics, Periodontics and Restorative dentistry which focus on current implant treatment philosophies and methodologies for replacing currently missing teeth and the management of patients who will be losing a tooth or teeth in the esthetic zone. Emphasis will be placed on the diagnosis and treatment planning, surgical and prosthetic management of soft and hard tissue for optimal anterior implant esthetics.
