Event Details

PRESENTER: Michael S. Block, DDS, Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon, Metairie, Louisiana

We all see patients who have loss of their anterior teeth either at an early age or later on in life.  Dental restoration have a finite life expectancy and when they fail often lead to loss of soft and hard tissue.  Implants placed in the anterior maxilla may fail for a variety of reasons, with similar loss of tissue.  This presentation will attempt to demonstrate which preoperative conditions lead to excellent esthetic results with fixed prosthetics with no need of pink gingival substitutes.  It will also show patients who must have prosthetic materials to substitute for loss of tissue.  The use of digital planning combined with cone beam imaging can lead us to refine implant placement with navigation methods. Multiple case examples will be shown.

At the end of this presentation the attendee will:

  1. Understand what pre-operative factors lead to esthetic success.
  2. Understand what deformities are predictably resulting in no need for pink gingival substitutes.
  3. Be able to utilize digital planning and navigation to accurately and precisely place implants with the final restoration guiding the surgery.
