Planning for Success in the Esthetic Zone | Safe Distance Learning Webinar Series

May 6, 2020 @ 2:00 pm

Open for Registration
Course Description:
As the predictability of implant therapy has increased, patients esthetic expectations levels have risen as
well. The implant restoration needs to integrate seamlessly with the natural dentition. An understanding of
proper treatment sequencing is critical to achieve a highly successful esthetic outcome. Intimate
coordination between the precise surgical aspect and the restorative phase is paramount in achieving
consistent esthetic restorations. This program will discuss how different treatment protocols can be
employed to achieve the desired esthetic outcomes.
At the conclusion of this session, the attendee should be able to:
  • Identify esthetic risk factors for natural teeth and implants
  • Understand the impact of treatment timing between the surgical aspect and the restorative outcome
  • Recognize the role of implant provisionals in creating and maintaining soft tissue contours for implant esthetics
  • Determine how to categorize patients according to treatment complexity
