There are three fundamental phases that are of paramount importance to an optimal esthetic outcome in the contemporary implant dentistry: (1) adequate treatment plan based on a rigorous diagnostic protocol, (2) surgically precisioned placement in relation to the prospective restoration, and (3) restoratively creating the desired soft tissue profile with an implant provisional restoration. Successful osseointegration does not necessarily lead to an optimally esthetic outcome.
The use and fabrication of the implant supported provisional for immediate tooth replacement, maintenance or creation of ideal soft tissue profile and accurate transfer of peri-implant soft tissue profile will be discussed followed by hands on exercise.
As a result of attending this course, you will be able to:
- Recognize the importance and role of the implant supported provisional to achieve optimal esthetics
- Demonstrate step–by-step fabrication of the provisional restoration (direct technique)
- Explain how the provisional can help to optimize esthetic treatment outcomes
