Oral Plastic Surgery: Smile Design and Surgical Concepts

Eduardo R Lorenzana

This lecture covers factors of importance for the esthetic outcome of implant-supported prostheses with a focus on soft tissues. In this context the speaker presents his ITI-based esthetic risk assessment form for evaluation during implant planning and subsequent rating of the patient situation into straightforward, advanced, or complex.

This lecture also reviews smile esthetics, tooth dimensions, and the basics of digital smile design. These fundamental smile concepts are used to highlight the importance of pre-treatment diagnosis including possible soft tissue modifications for uncompromised implant esthetics.

Techniques and procedures for soft tissue surgery are reviewed including connective tissue grafts, recession coverage, and other uses of connective tissue around implants. Techniques using perio-surgical tunneling instruments are presented with step-by-step videos.

This lecture concludes with a discussion of the lecturer’s perio-prosthodontic concept in creating the correct emergence profile. 

At the end of this Congress Lecture you should be able to…

  • explain crucial factors for the esthetic outcome of implant- and tooth-supported reconstructions
  • recognize soft tissue esthetic needs and necessary procedures prior to the implant surgery
  • explain the respective treatment steps needed to predictably achieve good implant esthetics
