Host: Daniel Benson
Date: 21 March 2023
Time: 1900 Refreshments 1930 Lecture
Location: Novotel Edinburgh Park, 15 Lochside Avenue, Edinburgh, EH12 9DJ

The presentation focuses on a new Prosthetic & Biologic Algorithm for achieving esthetics around implants.

Biodynamic Soft Tissue shaping, 3D positioning, defined and appropriate emergence profiles with an accurate analysis of STA around implant supported restorations will be thoroughly discussed with clinical cases.

 Learning Objectives

  • Learn how to increase Soft tissue Thickness around Implants
  • Dominate Gingival Architecture with a Minimally Invasive Approach (Biodynamic Soft Tissue Shaping) 
  • Understand Papillae and Facial Gingival Dynamics around implants 


  • Prosthetic emergence profile of Implant/Abutment
  • B.O.P.T implant vs natural tooth
  • Bone level and Soft tissue level Implants
  • Intramucosal Implants

Biological Approach:

  • Simplified implant placement
  • Apical-coronal freedom
  • Vertical platform switching
  • Soft tissue thickening and stability: Biodynamic Soft Tissue shaping concept

Prosthetic Approach:

  • BOPT concept
  • Prosthetic finishing area
  • Implant and prosthetic integration
  • Long term esthetics
