Course DescriptionThis course will address the issues that are important to consider in order to achieve immediate and long term aesthetic implant restorations on a consistently predictable basis. With new paradigm shifts away from single or two stage surgical protocols to immediate implant placement and provisional restorations, biomechanical requirements and aesthetic demands must also change. These changes will be reviewed with respect to treatment planning, implant site preparation and implant selection for immediate restoration of single and multiple units.
