Implants in the Aesthetic Zone and Current Controversies in Implant Dentistry

This course will provide an updated look at some of the more controversial topics in implant restorations. Extensive time will be spent on looking at clinical results, tips and techniques, along with scientific evidence.

The restoration of implants in the aesthetic zone varies significantly from implant treatment in other areas. Successful outcomes require not just osseointegration of the implant fixture itself, but also creation of appropriate gingival architecture, selection and fabrication of an abutment / crown system that balances aesthetic and functional demands. Special attention will be given to provisional techniques,  abutment / crown selection, impression techniques and gingival shaping. The techniques and materials demonstrated will balance efficient and practical techniques with clinical results and scientific evidence.
