Mid-Facial Tissue Preservation Achieved with Immediate Placement of Co-Axis® Implants and Screw-Retained Restorations

May 25, 2017
Time 6:00 – 9:00 PM

A Discussion-Oriented Evening Program with Dr. Stephen Chu

Course Description
Post-extraction socket immediate implant placement in the anterior maxilla remains one of implant dentistry’s most challenging procedures. Anatomic challenges often result in implants being placed and angulated in a compromised facial-biased position. This leads to cement-retained restorations or the use of angled abutments, both of which are sub-optimal for preserving mid-facial tissues.

This program will demonstrate why the use of an innovative implant design together with an appropriate screw-retained provisional and final restoration can help maximize bone and soft tissue volume.

A dual or co-axis implant design allows for Subcrestal Angle Correction™ leading to properly placed implants and the use of screw-retained restorations. Predictable anterior esthetic outcomes in post-extraction socket immediate implants in the anterior maxilla are achievable and should be considered by all implant specialists.

Program Objectives
• Identify the right patient candidates for post-extraction socket immediate placement in the anterior zone.
• Incorporate tissue management guidelines for preserving the natural gingival contours post treatment.
• Understand the predictable anterior aesthetics benefits of the Co-Axis Implant combined with a screw-retained restoration.
