This lecture, hands-on, live patient course will outline a new prosthetic option besides the existing surgical and orthodontic options to enhance esthetical deficiencies in the anterior ridge. Esthetically replacing missing teeth in areas of significant anterior ridge deformities has been and still is a significant challenge in dentistry. High esthetic expectations and implant therapy have only increased this challenge.
Participants will learn:
Analyses of anterior ridge deficiencies
All of the available treatment options and limitations - where, when, and how
Design and fabrication of a 3-dimensional reconstruction of deficient ridges
Ability to enhance the esthetic result of the final tooth form and gingival design
Facial esthetics - enhancement of lip support
Explore, enjoy and take this course:
Evaluate the limitations when restoring deficient ridges
Decision making process
Understand the importance of ideal soft tissue architecture for developing natural looking restorations
The white and pink interface
When and how to utilize artificial gingiva
Clinical and laboratory procedures when fabricating the Pink Hybrid Restoration
