Presented by Dr. Stephen Chu
Implant dentistry is continuously evolving offering new and more predictable forms of therapy with minimally invasive protocols. Innovative techniques now allow for better aesthetics, decreased treatment times, and greater patient comfort. However, these new techniques and therapies continue to raise questions and concerns regarding the risk and rewards of each. Specifically, controversial issues regarding immediate postextraction socket implant placement in relationship to survival and aesthetic outcomes. Immediate provisional restoration of immediate implants placed into anterior sites will be presented.
This lecture will address current concepts, techniques, clinical research, histologic evidence, and innovations in immediate implant placement and provisional restoration and how they can enhance treatment procedures, time, and clinical outcomes for greater patient comfort, care, and satisfaction.
After this presentation, the attendee should be able to understand the following concepts associated with immediate implant placement and provisional restoration:
- Understand the treatment time and survival rates associate with immediate protocols.
- The prosthetic and biologic impact on hard tissue buccal contour change and peri-implant soft tissue thickness.
- Prosthodontic innovations in provisional restoration fabrication.
