Interdisciplinary Digital Treatment Plan in implant dentistry:

DR. Jaime Jimenez, DSD & Implant Dentistry, Spain

Today when providing implant aesthetic dentistry therapy in the anterior region, with high predictability in the long-term, may not be possible most of the time without considering an interdisciplinary approach as part of the treatment plan.  This allows clinicians nowadays to reduce the number of surgeries, better prognosis, resulting in shorter treatment times, thus better patient satisfaction. Due to advances in technology (diagnostic tools and imaging) but also our understanding of biological mechanisms, as well as the enormous amount of researches in the field of aesthetic implant dentistry, as well as the advances in the diagnostic tools, has lead to a completely different era regarding dental extraction and replacement of missing tooth. Implant dentistry will always be benefit by a team work approach, creating a great communication between all the participants of the different areas in dentistry. During the presentation, an evidence based update in interdisciplinary aesthetic implant dentistry will be covered, with the indications and contraindications; as well as the surgical and prosthetic procedures, in different case scenarios will be presented.

Implants in aesthetic area

Algirdas Puisys, DDS, spec periodontology, PhD

The clinical effectiveness of dental implants treatment is well documented and shows excellent results regarding survival rate. Achieving an optimal esthetic result when replacing a single missing tooth with an implant in the esthetic zone is a very demanding procedure even in this high-tech technology time. Timing of implant placement and different kind of bone and soft tissue augmentation procedures have been discussed in numerous researches. But there is a lack of objective outcome evaluation data from an esthetic point of view in the current literature. Aim of this lecture is to discuss how to achieve predictable aesthetic results having different initial situations. For this reason, preliminary results from two clinical studies on aesthetics will be presented.
