Variable Considerations for Optimizing Anterior Implant Esthetics
Joseph Kan, DDS, MS
Upon completion of this presentation, participants should be able to: 1) describe how implant type/design/dimension affect peri-implant esthetics; 2) recognize limitations of predictable tissues regeneration; and 3) explain how to optimize peri-implant tissue esthetics.
10:50 - 11:10 am
Socket Management with Biomaterials to Maintain Alveolar Contours
Daniele Cardaropoli, DDS
Upon completion of this presentation, participants should be able to: 1) explain the dynamic of healing of post-extraction sockets; 2) select the surgical technique and the biomaterials to perform ridge preservations; and 3) improve the predictability of the treatments provided for the management of extractions sites.
11:10 - 11:30 am
10 Keys to Avoid Recession Around Implants in the Esthetic Zone
Robert Levine, DDS
Upon completion of this presentation, participants should be able to: 1) list the “keys to success” and “keys to failure” in treating the patient’s esthetic zone; 2) discuss the importance of using the Esthetic Risk Profile (ERP) for team & patient communication; and 3) demonstrate the coordinated team approach in the treatment of the esthetic zone from surgery to provisionalization to final case completion.
11:30 am - noon
Implant Site Redevelopment: Treating Implant Failures in the Esthetic Zone
Daniel Buser, DDS, DMD
Upon completion of this presentation, participants should be able to: 1) list the various causes of esthetic implant failures; 2) describe how to remove osseointegrated implants without causing additional bone loss; 3) explain the different treatment options to manage esthetic failures; and 4) discuss bone augmentation procedures.
