Title: Anterior Implant Esthetics: The Ortho-Perio-Restorative Connection
Presenter: Dr. Joseph Kan
Achieving anterior implant esthetics is a challenging and demanding procedure. To create implant restorations with a harmonious gingival contour that emulate nature is a fusion of science and art. Understanding the biologic and physiologic limitations of the soft and hard tissue will facilitate predictability in a simple to complex esthetic situations.
This presentation encompasses the Science, Art and Limitations of Orthodontics, Periodontics and Restorative Dentistry on esthetic implant reconstruction. Current implant treatment philosophies and methodologies for replacing currently missing teeth and the management of patients who will be losing a tooth or teeth in the esthetic zone will be discussed. Emphasis will be placed on diagnosis and treatment planning, surgical and prosthetic management of soft and hard tissue for optimal anterior implant esthetics.
Dr. Kan completed Prosthodontics and Implant Dentistry from Loma Linda University. He is a Professor and maintains a Private Practice.
