Dental Implants in the aesthetic zone: Decision making in uncharted waters!

Anterior maxilla is one of the most challenging sites for implant placement, as the local anatomy is most frequently compromised. At the same time, the high expectations for natural esthetics introduce significant challenges for the operator, who is required to carefully selct the the appropriate treatment pathway and design the intervention.

 

Decision making is not simple, as the evidence is often generic and not always conclusive , while the specific anatomic anatomic conditions of each individual might differ significantly. A wide array of techniques for bone and soft tissue manipulation, is available, as well as a significant number of implant technologies, surface and designs. In addition, the timing of the implant placement – either immediate, early or delayed – might be also another important factor for the long term successful outcome. In essence, thorough understanding of the individual patient needs, the local anatomy and the wound healing process, as well as mastering the use of modern implant technology would be the key to predictable and maintainable success.

 

This presentation will attempt to sum up all the critical factors for decision making and focus on establishing a treatment philosophy based on currently available  evidence and best clinical practice.  Through actual clinical cases we will navigate step by step the major clinical decisions required when placing implants in the esthetics zone. Furthermore, we will identify significant factors of implant technology such as design and surface and we will discuss how to make the most of the possibilities offered by modern implants in challenging clinical scenaria.
