The Critical Interfaces – Planning and Development

This program is a perspective into how cross-disciplinary “interface planning” has become an integral part of aesthetic implant dentistry and that in 2015 it is essential to understand “white” tooth aesthetics as it relates to critical “pink” gingival and lip interfaces.

Today, understanding the surgical, biological and prosthetic “limitations” is part of innovative treatment planning protocols in an approach to simplify, expedite and provide minimally invasive, limited therapy. 

Pre-emptive CBCT and 3D CAD/CAM planning now utilise new virtual protocols for the entire clinical procedure: soft and hard tissue procedures, implant placement, ridge reduction, and total restorative design (crown and abutments) – digital technologies for all the surgical, laboratory and restorative phases.

This program will address:

  • Prognostic 3D virtual cross-disciplinary planning of the complete procedure
    (surgical guides, abutments, restorative design and fabrication)
  • Alternative solutions to clinical failures and dilemmas
  • “Prosthetic Artifical Gingivae”- Ceramic vs. Composite vs. Hybrid
  • Osseous “reduction” to optimize aesthetics
  • The evolving crucial implant/abutment interface
  • Ceramic Restorative Decisions 2015
    (Zirconium, Titanium, Ceramo-metal or Lithium disilicate)
  • Increased rapidity, immediacy and aesthetics in 2015
  • The predictable and simplified protocols for the single immediate implant

Tea/Coffee & Exhibition
Interplay of Surgical and Prosthetic Procedures relative to Implants Designs for Enhanced Predictability of Care

The process of tooth replacement with dental implants is complemented by assessment of patient-specific risk factors, appropriate site development and biomechanical design in the total system related to implant outcomes.  The concept of systems outcomes relates to the biomechanical issues related to bone preparation, implant design, abutment shape, contour and composition as well as implant-abutment connections.  The clinical outcomes and long-term service life relates to each of these features in the overall system.  The ability to manage this process predictability is enhanced though the applications of new technologies, expanding on our long-established protocols for implant therapy. Ultimately it is your patients who will benefit from enhancements to the overall biomechanical designs of oral implant systems.


  • Outline the critical issues in biomechanical design as it relates to surgical and prosthetic systems
  • Outline outcomes from treatment planning and plan performance with use of risk factor assessment as it relates to biomechanical design
  • Evaluating the impact of these design features on patient outcomes
