Modern implantology: A prosthodontic approach to a biologic challenge - Dr. Jonathan Esquivel

The world of implant dentistry has changed over time; patients are far more demanding today than many years ago, they do not expect a simple implant crown to substitute a missing tooth but rather a restoration that emulates natural dentition. A clear understanding of peri-implant biology and prosthetically driven treatment planning is crucial in predicting our implant cases’ functional, biological, and esthetic success. The soft tissue-restorative interphase is the most complicated area to work within implant therapy and requires much attention to detail. Proper material selection, abutment design, and handling of the materials in the sub-gingival spaces also increase implant therapy predictability.
In this program, the clinician will be exposed to important prosthetic and periodontal concepts to promote crestal bone and gingival margin stability in time, helping achieve long-lasting optimal results.
• Identify important considerations for the management, and prevention of complications in esthetic implant therapy.
• Identify the relationship between position, soft tissue, and the prognosis of esthetic implant therapy.
• Understand the biological importance of the different areas of the emergence profile.
• Understand the importance of the biological and mechanical management of abutment design in the subgingival space.
