This presentation highlights the surgical and restorative techniques to accomplish predictable outcomes in the esthetic zone with implant therapy. Treatment modalities are demonstrated with high quality photography and case series discussion. Surgical modalities presented include ridge preservation and immediate implant placement as well as soft and hard tissue augmentation. Special emphasis is placed on immediate provisionalization of implants to accomplish optimal peri-implant mucosa architecture. Techniques to transfer provisional emergence profile to the final restoration are presented. Additionally, critical elements of restorative treatment and material choice are discussed. An additional aspect of the course focuses on full arch prostheses and treatment planning considerations.
