2018 Seminar – Biology Versus Technology – Winning with Optimum Dental Implant Esthetics

Art has been defined as the selective recreation of reality. In dentistry, we use advances in technology to improve our recreation of the natural tooth reality. The predictable achievement of esthetic dental implant restorations is largely the result of 1) successful treatment planning that accounts for the objective criteria for dental esthetics and 2) predictable, positive responses of peri-implant tissues to the dental implant and abutment. The documented responses of peri-implant tissues to dental implants will be used to exemplify the link between defined technology with predictable procedures to meet these objective criteria of dental esthetics. Clinical presentations will be used to illustrate the application of objective criteria to plan for esthetics that support reproducible peri-implant tissue responses. The objective of this program is to provide participants with a broader understanding of implant esthetics.

At the completion of this course, participants will be able to:

  • Acquire a working knowledge of peri-implant tissue preservation and regeneration around implants.
  • Appreciate the value of all-ceramic restorations in achieving reproducible, high-quality esthetic implant restorations.
  • Understand the important factors affecting abutment selection and abutment modification for the esthetic implant restoration.
  • Develop a new appreciation for the reciprocal relationship that exists between surgical and prosthodontic aspects of dental implant therapy.
