As a young implantologist, I remember a lot of lectures seemingly created with the sole purpose of showing why anterior implants were too complicated for a general dentist. The cases presented were of beautiful people with picturesque alignment and gingival contours. The amazing results often involved a who’s-who of practitioners working as a team: a whiz-kid associate who was a master of dental photography, a surgeon who planned the surgical guide with the best software lab in the region, and a restorative specialist who went through five different provisional crowns before the in-house lab layered the porcelain numerous times on the final crown. Not many lectures opened up by telling the audience, “I’m here to teach general dentists the basic principles needed to achieve successful anterior implant therapies on your patients.” The protocol I describe is relatively minimal in nature and suitable for solo practitioners who are responsible for all aspects of therapy. This short course will teach general dentists basic principles for success with anterior implant cases.
