Replacing a single tooth with an implant has become a common dental procedure; however, careful evaluation is necessary before placing implants in the esthetic zone. Thorough diagnosis and planning including the use of transposed diagnostic casts and cone beam computed tomography scans may help dentists predict the final esthetic result prior to treatment. Such diagnostic procedures may also help inform the patient of the anticipated result prior to performing any irreversible therapy. In the present cases, the primary concern was the pre-surgical location of the facial free gingival margin (FGM) of the implant-supported crown, in relation to the adjacent teeth. Steps taken to correct the position of the facial FGM prior to implant placement led to successful esthetic results.

Caution: Participants must be aware that there may be potential risks of using limited knowledge when incorporating techniques and procedures into practice when they have not received supervised clinical experience or demonstrate competency


Upon completion of this course the clinician will be able to:
Objective 1:
Treatment plan both the surgical and restorative phases of dental implant treatment in esthetic zone.
Objectinve 2:
Identify key diagnostic determinants allowing predictable immediate implant placement including: adequate bone and tissue volume and quality, presence of buccal/facial plate and shape of teeth.
Objective 3:
Understand surgical techniques used to extract teeth atraumatically and surgical techniques used to shape the osteotomy and proper placement of immediate implants.
Objective 4:
Understand basic site preparation; bone grafting techniques for socket preservation, and treatment sequences.
Objective 5:
Understand the ideal surgical immediate implant placement including depth and mediolateral placement.
Objective 6:
Understand restorative techniques used to make impressions and deliver immediate and final restorations.
Objective 7:
Select modern restorative materials for restoring dental implants in the molar region.
