Lecture: Towards a biologically-oriented esthetic implant restoration. Where do we stand?
In order to achieve a natural-looking result of artificial implant restorations, we must analyze the operative site and plan for a long term healthy integration of the restorative complex and the implant fixture within the surrounding living tissues.
At the smile zone our primary goal is also to obtain natural-looking peri-implant soft tissue embracing a natural-looking functioning crown.
The accumulated insights over the last 20 years on bone and tissue response (and alterations) around implants, enable biologic-based implementation of different surgical and restorative approaches, so that the abutment-crown complex has more chances to blend in with the surrounding tissue and the dentition in complete health and harmony. Unfortunately, this goal is not always predictable and achievable.
In this presentation, surgical and restorative approaches will be demonstrated through clinical cases, to enable a comprehensive understanding of the present limitations and the various options available today to maximize the successful results of implants-based restorations especially at the smile zone.
