All of the photographs in the presentation are original and have not been altered and all of the treatment outcomes as represented by the photographs in his presentation are true indications of treatment.

Course Synopsis:  The anterior maxilla provides anatomic challenges that often result in implants being placed at an angle or in a compromised facial biased position.  Esthetic management is even more important when employing post-extraction immediate implant placement and provisional restoration protocols.
This program will demonstrate how an innovative implant design and appropriate provisional restoration can be used in immediate extraction socket therapy to maximize bone and soft tissue volume.  A dual or co-axis design allows for subcrestal angle correction leading to the implant being placed in the correct position with a consistent screw-retained provisional and final restoration.  The achievement of predictable anterior esthetic outcomes is an important treatment solution that should be properly considered by all dentists.

Course Learning Objectives: At the conclusion of this course the attendees will:

  1. Will be able to understand the principles that lead to the use of an angled implant for improved screw access and retention
  2. Understand how to provisionalize an implant with a screw retained crown
  3. Understand the evidence base information available that predictably can be used to achieve consistent anterior esthetic implant restorations.

Clinical lecture component:  The Center for Dental Reconstruction designates this activity for 2 continuing education credits.
