Enhancement of the Peri-Implant Tissues Towards a Biologically-Oriented Aesthetic Restoration at the Smile Zone
Aim of the Session:
This presentation highlights the biologic concepts utilized when executing implant-based restorations at the smile zone, providing the audience with a comprehensive understanding of the state of the art clinical techniques implemented.
In order to achieve a natural-looking result of artificial implant restorations, the operator must, before choosing a specific implant system and the restorative materials, analyze the operative site and plan for a healthy integration of the whole restorative complex and the implant fixture within the surrounding living tissues.
At the smile zone a primary goal is also to obtain natural-looking peri-implant soft tissue embracing a natural-looking functioning crown.
The accumulated insights of the last 20 years on bone and tissue response (and alterations) around implants, enable biologic-based implementation of different surgical and restorative approaches, so that the abutment-crown complex blends in with the adjacent tissue and dentition in complete health and harmony.
