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 of natural aesthetics introduce significant challenges for the operator, who is required to “begin with the end in mind”,  carefully select the appropriate treatment pathway and design the best intervention for the individual patient. The course will review the most common implant placement and restoration protocols in the aesthetic zone and allow participants to practice the most important hard and soft tissue augmentation techniques in custo made models!
