Course Description

Immediate implant placement and immediate restoration have allowed clinicians to maximize aesthetic results for their patients while expediting their therapy. This program will provide attendees with a strong theoretical basis on the management of single- tooth implants in the aesthetic zone. We will also identify areas where custom implant impression copings should be considered for use for anterior implant restorations where the copings are used to capture soft tissue emergence profiles of the peri-implant soft tissues.
