Title:  From Z to A: Parameters for Integration of Aesthetics and Function in Implant Dentistry.


Synopsis:  Modern Implant Dentistry is more than providing a patient with a titanium fixture and restoration.  When replacing a missing tooth, patients' expectations are high from an aesthetic, functional and health perspective.  Success is achieved in a reverse pathway by working from an aesthetic goal to a healthy, supportive foundation.


Course Objectives:

  • Visualize from the onset the aesthetics of the final prosthesis
  • Understand the alternative prosthetic options and how to properly implement them
  • Diagnose and create a treatment plan with an interdisciplinary approach
