A harmonious aesthetic outcome around dental implants that mimics the surrounding dentition and soft-tissue condition is difficult to create and maintain long term.

This presentation will discuss the critical factors associated with case selection; the relevance of the surgical techniques employed and a step by step surgical guide to immediate and staged implant placement.

Key skills areas for optimising aesthetic outcomes will be discussed and include bone grafting, soft tissue grafting, temporisation as well as cementation aspects.

Education aims and objectives:

  • To be familiar with the rationale for choosing different implant treatment options with an emphasis on evidence-based dentistry.
  • To appreciate the role of differing treatment strategies that are utilised (such as soft tissue grafting) to enhance the aesthetic outcome.
  • To be familiar with the procedural steps required ot maintain precision and predictability using aesthetic treatments.
