Harlow Study Club - 18 January 2017

How To Avoid Complications With Implants in the Aesthetic Zone and How To Deal With Complications When They Occur

Presented by: Rob Oretti
Date: 18 January 2017
Time: 1900 Refreshments 1930 Lecture
Location: Park Inn Harlow, Southern Way, Harlow, CM18 7BA

The goal is to create a harmonious aesthetic outcome around dental implants that mimics the surrounding dentition and soft-tissue condition. This is difficult to create and maintain long term. Bone remodelling and soft tissue recession are known adverse factors which can negatively impact upon the final long term outcome and the extent of these changes are often considered unpredictable when considering the immediate implant approach.

This presentation will discuss the critical factors associated with case selection; the relevance of the surgical techniques employed and a step by step surgical sequence demonstrating how post-operative changes can be significantly reduced on a predictable basis.

Nevertheless, despite careful planning and execution, adverse outcomes can still occur and this presentation will also highlight the procedures that are required to correct compromised outcomes. Key skills areas for optimizing aesthetic outcomes will also be discussed.

Educational Aims and Objectives :

To be familiar with the rationale for choosing differing implant treatment options with an emphasis on evidence based dentistry.

To appreciate the role of differing treatment strategies that are utilized (such as soft tissue grafting) to enhance the aesthetic outcome.

To be familiar with the procedural steps required to deal with and correct adverse aesthetic outcomes.



Robert qualified in 1987 and after working in an orthodontic practice for 4 years came to Newbury, Berkshire in 1992.

In 2006 Rob established Pentangle Dental Transformations - a purpose built centre for implant and restorative dentistry with over 150 referring dentists - and has built a reputation for aesthetic treatment of complex cases involving cosmetic, implant & orthodontic treatments.

Rob has taught and mentored many dentists on all aspects of implant therapy. Rob is currently a post graduate tutor for the Oxford and Berkshire deaneries, a mentor and faculty educator for the ADI (Association of Dental Implantology), a mentor and international speaker for the ITI (International team of Implantologists), a Royal College of Surgeons examiner for the implant diploma (RCS Edin), as well as scientific director and president elect of BAAD (British Academy of Aesthetic Dentistry).

He presents regularly at scientific meetings and has published several articles on implant therapy.
