Description and review of concepts related to dental implants in an esthetic zone. This presentation will include hard and soft tissue considerations for long term maintenance of peri-implant health. Implants in an esthetic area are considered complex due to a variety of reasons. A clinician needs to consider various aspects such as ridge dimensions, smile line, soft tissue quality, implant position, papilla height among others, when placing implants in an esthetic region.
At the conclusion of this course, participants will:
- Assess and evaluate the complexity of cases.
- Identify potential issues prior to treatment.
- Develop a comprehensive treatment plan
