Tooth loss results in bone atrophy and loss in tissue volume, and let’s face it, our patients want teeth not ‘implants; per se. And when we say teeth, what we really mean is the entire teeth, gum and smile complex. Whilst there are numerous restorative techniques to deal with volume loss, these often result in hygiene difficulties, food entrapment and deteriorating aesthetics over time due to iatrogenic causes. Surgical tissue reconstruction before, or simultaneously with an ideally paced implant which is restored with an appropriately-contoured supra-structure, are critical for ultimate aesthetics and overall success. This course will focus of techniques to predictably restore volume loss, ideal positioning of implants and provisionalisation techniques and will include a live surgery presentation.
