Implant esthetics is continually changing and evolving. Today, we have more tools available to us to achieve superior results. Implant diagnosis and treatment planning are crucial to the success of any implant treatment plan, including facial diagnosis for both aesthetics and function, implant dental diagnosis including tooth position, and evaluation of available bone and soft tissue height. The goal of this course is to give a complete aesthetic checklist for predictable implant placement, as well as execute difficult interdisciplinary aesthetic cases. This session will include a combination of lecture and live patient demonstration that will detail communication and execution between doctor and technician.
• Evaluate how the concepts of beauty and facial aesthetic design affects implant placement and function.
• Diagnose, treatment plan, and execute complex interdisciplinary aesthetic cases.
• Determine when to utilize immediate vs. delayed implant placement, abutment selection, and provisionalization techniques for implants in the aesthetic zone.
