Speaker: Dr. Lino Calvani
Better facial aesthetics is increasingly an important personal and professional calling card. In this regard, partial and total edentulism can create reconstructive situations that are difficult to manage, as a lot of information and competence are required. Research conducted with adequate digital technologies can help the prosthodontist's task, allowing him to know anatomical details that would otherwise be impossible to see. Furthermore, a careful analysis of the conformation and function of the hard and soft tissues of the lower third of the face, allows a better understanding of the biomechanics of the facial support, of its functional importance and limitations. All these information can guide the development of simple and complex predictable treatment plans capable of restoring and improving specific situations that mark the individual static and dynamic physiognomy of each face. Every facial cosmetic practice, so much abused today, can only relatively improve or even worsen the esthetic and functional result without proper prosthetic treatment planning.
- Identify the fundamental structure of the prosthetic treatment plan as it relates to facial support, and how it should be articulated to achieve predictable and successful functional and esthetic results for patients and the profession.
- Know the true concept of "Facial Support", a reality that is rarely talked about because its anatomical and biomechanical details are often forgotten, and its practical importance in the life of patients.
- Learn about the latest clinical and digital research on hard and soft tissue and how its results can influence and improve planning strategies and the practical execution of truly sustainable and predictable treatments.
