Stephen J. Chu, DMD, MSD, CDT
Implant Therapy in the Aesthetic Zone
Willows on Westfield - Indianapolis, IN

Course Description

Implant dentistry is continually evolving, offering new and more predictable forms of therapy with minimally invasive protocols.  However, these new techniques and therapies continue to raise questions and concerns regarding their risks and rewards. This lecture will address current concepts, techniques, clinical research, histologic evidence, and innovations in immediate implant placement and provisional restoration and how they can enhance treatment procedures, time, and clinical outcomes for greater patient comfort, care, and satisfaction.

Esthetic failures associated with dental implants in the esthetic zone can be one of the greatest challenges facing the dental team. Surgical, orthodontics, and restorative treatment planning options and techniques to address these esthetic deficiencies will be presented in a sequential manner from simple periodontal-restorative solutions to more complex case types involving orthodontics, periodontics, and prosthetics.
