Master Course in Esthetic Implant Dentistry
Today, implant esthetics is an important issue in implant dentistry. In the anterior maxilla, the rehabilitation of patients with implant supported restorations is often challenging for involved clinicians due to the high esthetic demand expressed by patients, and a difficult anatomical situation with bone and/or soft tissue deficiencies, which are often present in the anterior maxilla. This interactive 3-day CE course has been established for colleagues experienced in implant dentistry. It will systematically present the treatment concepts for the handling of single tooth gaps or extended edentulous spaces in the anterior maxilla. These concepts have been developed in the past 20 years between the Universities of Bern and Geneva using a team approach. Important aspects of treatment planning, surgical procedures and prosthetic rehabilitation with provisional and definitive restorations will be presented and discussed. The speakers will present the biologic basis for current surgical and prosthetic procedures in various lectures. The different surgical techniques including bone augmentation procedures with the GBR technique will be presented with live surgeries.
