Outline

The challenge of integrating dental implants in esthetic treatment is demonstrated with techniques that optimize hard and soft tissue balance. Proper treatment planning and collaboration between members of the implant team, including the periodontist, oral surgeon, restorative dentist, prosthodontist and orthodontist, resulting in predictably long-term esthetic outcomes is illustrated. Step-by-step clinical examples and videos demonstrate provisional and definitive restoration techniques. Results are examined from initiation of treatment to long- term follow-up for periods of over 20 years. This course is designed for dental teams who wish to explore a methodical and integrated approach to restoration techniques that simplify the process of esthetic implant rehabilitation and increase patient satisfaction with the overall dental experience.
