Achieving predictable long-term results when replacing single teeth in the esthetic zone is considered one of the most difficult implant procedures. The key criteria for implants in the esthetic zone include a comprehensive case analysis, a correct diagnosis, and accurate treatment planning and execution. This lecture presents important considerations for performing this procedure in order to prevent peri-implant hard and soft tissue recession. A variety of cases demonstrate different clinical situations and placement protocols.
At the end of this Congress Lecture you should be able to…
discuss the concepts of pink esthetics, contour esthetics, and white esthetics as they relate to a long-term esthetic outcome
analyze different clinical situations and relate them to different clinical procedures
select the appropriate clinical pathway depending on the clinical situation for single-tooth replacement in the esthetic zone
