Partial Edentulism in the Esthetic Zone: Unique Challenges & Considerations for Implant Rehabilitation

LEARNING OBJECTIVES

• Understand partial edentulous teatment options in the esthetic zone
• Be aware of complications that can arise and how to avoid them
• Become familiar with the literature regarding implant placement in partially edentulous situations

DESCRIPTION

Implant replacement at the highest level must incorporate an
understanding of underlying biologic principles. Although single
tooth implants require diligent planning, the partial edentulous
predicament poses unique challenges, especially when working in
the esthetic zone. An understanding of when, where and how many
implants to place in various edentulous permutations to optimize
success will be discussed. Key articles that have clinical relevance
to maintaining bone levels, papillary presence and the appropriate
dimensions implants should be placed in relationship to each other
and surrounding natural teeth will be reviewed. A number of cases
both successful and so called “less than ideal outcomes” will be
analyzed to understand what went right and wrong in an effort to
increase predictable desirable results with an emphasis on the role of
immediacy. This course is geared to those involved in both the surgical
placement or restoration of dental implants.
