In order to provide an esthetic final restoration, especially in the anterior area, a transitional restoration is necessary to guide the tissue. The development of healthy peri-implant tissue is important for both the biologic and the esthetic aspect of dental implant restorations. This course is intended for dentists who are interested in learning how to manage peri-implant soft tissue during the healing phase and outlines the implant provisionalization process.
During this session the attendee will:
- Understand the concept of peri-implant emergency profile and soft tissue management.
- Evaluate the methods of implant temporization for a screw retained or cement retained temporary restoration.
- Fabricate and contour an implant provisional.
- Capture and translate the peri-implant soft tissue information to the laboratory for final restoration fabrication.
