A technique course emphasizing the successful prosthetic and surgical management of immediate implant placement for the Esthetic Zone. This course will provide scientific and clinical applications of fabricating an immediately loaded provisional implant restoration. Emphasis will be placed on the prosthetic interface, “platform shifting,” emergence profiles, bone remodeling, and soft tissue healing, all critical factors when the clinician is dealing with esthetics.

Discussions of immediate loading protocols and techniques will be covered in depth. Additional information will be presented on socket gap management and simultaneous soft tissue augmentation. The hands-on portion will be spent on ideal implant placement in the Esthetic Zone on plastic models and constructing the provisional restoration. This course is designed for clinicians involved in both surgical and prosthetic aspects of advanced implant treatment.


Learning Objectives

• The biological conditions for success with immediately placed implants
• The ideal emergence profiles of implant abutments and how to create them
• When, where and how to use “platform shifting” implants and components
• Rational and techniques for creating screw retained implant provisionals
• The science and controversies behind immediate loading implants
• Soft tissue management around immediately placed implants
• Management of the perio-restorative interface and creation of a scalloped architecture

Workshop Exercises

• Placement of implant in the Esthetic Zone using plastic models
• Placement of graft materials for “gap bridging”
• Fabrication of a screw-retained implant provisional restoration
