Key factors for esthetic success with implant supported restorations. From an esthetic failure to a successful result

Since implant dentistry has become a common treatment for replacing missing teeth, dentists have been trying to mimic natural tooth morphology in order to achieve both functional result and to fulfill the patient’s esthetic desires. What was considered the standard of care 26 years ago is not necessarily valid today. The purpose of the presentation is to provide a check list  that will guide the clinician developing a proper analysis and diagnosis for the successful esthetic result with implant supported restoration. Different clinical scenarios will be discussed: such as immediate implant placement and socket preservation via socket grafting. In conclusion we will analyzed compromised esthetic results providing possible clinical solutions. This presentation will provide the clinician with a therapeutic guide to solve esthetic issues with an evidenced based clinical approach.

Learning objectives:

  1. Which are the Limiting factors for an optimal implant esthetic results.
  2. When to perform an immediate implant placement  and when perform a socket grafting procedure
  3. Which are the best membrane and grafting materials for socket preservation available today? When and how choose one of them.
  4. How and when is better to increase the soft tissue thickness around dental implant?
  5. Prosthetic limitation to restore a less than ideal implant position.
