There is more to incorporating dental implants into your practice than the surgical placement. Diagnosing and treatment planning to help choose the right site for an implant and a review of atraumatic extraction techniques and grafting procedures are discussed in preparation for proper implant placement. Protocols for 2 dimensional placement and understanding the rules for anterior placement are presented. CBCT diagnosis protocols are demonstrated to help in the fabrication of a single anterior implant crown and a hybrid appliance. Learn how to achieve acceptable esthetics where there is significant bone loss, and defects in the surrounding tissues.
There are rules that when followed can help the practitioner provide outstanding functional and esthetic results for our patients. These include an understanding of available inter-septal bone and its importance in creating interdental papilla.
When our patients present with significant bone loss due to trauma or periodontal disease, procedures can be accomplished to maintain hard tissue contours and support for our dental implants. Esthetic issues can be resolved with high quality laboratory procedures.
The most critical aspect of our esthetic implant dentistry is explaining to our patients about the results we can achieve. Visualizing the case finished prior to any surgical intervention can be aided with the use of computer technology and digital design. The final outcome is the most critical part of our modern implant procedures. Taking the steps illustrated here
help maximize these results and minimize the stress to the dentist and result in a satisfied patient who promotes your practice.
