Predictable Implant Esthetics
Paresh Shah, M.S. D.M.D.
An IL AGD Member Benefit Course

Course Description

Implants are without question a vital treatment option for replacement of missing teeth. Successful implant treatment can be challenging for many clinicians in order to achieve predictable results. Implant, abutment and final restoration selection all play a vital role to the success of the treatment. This lecture will allow participants to learn how to plan and implement successful implant esthetics. We will cover implant planning from diagnosis to implant selection and placement. Proper impressioning techniques, lab communication, abutment selection, provisionalization, tissue management and prosthetic design will be reviewed. Learn techniques that will be easy to implement Monday morning.
