Course Description:

A great challenge in implantology today is a predictable, long lasting pink esthetic result. However, constant removing and replacement of multiple prosthetic components has been proven to initiate vertical soft tissue loss. An innovative clinical treatment concept to avoid tissue loss is based upon the non-traumatic and effective shaping of the periimplant soft tissue from the very 1st moment of implant insertion. Therefore, a “one abutment-one time” concept is the preferred choice for maintaining the hard and soft tissues around implants. Additionally, platform switched and sealed implant-abutment connections will be highlighted that can further prevent crestal bone loss and an apical shift of the mid-facial soft tissue. A new concept of "Prosthetic socket preservation” utilized at the time of extraction will also be highlighted that simulates an intentional tooth re-implantation only without the root. This presentation will demonstrate a workflow for oral surgeons, prosthodontists and dental technicians to achieve a predictable midfacial soft tissue level by an effective and atraumatic protocol.

Learning Objectives:

  • New concepts in avoiding vertical tissue loss with implant placement.
  • Highlighting implants that can further prevent crestal bone loss and an apical shift of the mid-facial soft tissue.
