Achieving anterior implant esthetics is challenging and demanding.
Creating implant restorations with harmonious gingival contour that emulate nature is a fusion of some
science and lots of art. Understanding the biologic and physiologic limitations of soft and hard tissue is
key to facilitate predictability in complex esthetic situations.
This course will focus on current implant treatment philosophies and methodologies for replacing
missing teeth and the management of patients who will be losing a tooth or teeth in the esthetic zone.
Emphasis will be placed on diagnosis and treatment planning, complex case and complication
management, interdisciplinary treatment options, occlusion management, and soft and hard tissue
regeneration for optimal anterior implant esthetics.
