Lecture topic: “Implants, Aesthetics, and Full Mouth Rehabilitation”

The anterior aesthetic zone always needs to be improved with new technologies and materials. This presentation will analyze the various techniques and show applications to change and restore beautiful natural smiles, using teeth and implants. Understanding biologic width, bone zone and tissue zone dimension is critical in extractions and placements of implants in the aesthetic zone. Preserving the biologic hard and soft tissues can help the clinician better manage the gingival heights of tissue. In addition, utilizing Digital Smile Designs we can get excellent results with our provisionals for beautiful natural smiles. For the extreme case of severely worn dentition, the understanding of vertical dimension of occlusion and restoring the heights of natural teeth and then replacing missing dentition with implants will be discussed. Sound prosthodontic principles will be demonstrated to show how traditional knowledge and methods can be enhanced with digital solutions and digital work-flow for long-term success.
