The Digital Implant – Restorative Connection in the Anterior Esthetic Zone
The fully digitized protocol that will be presented in this lecture, will emphasize the importance of correct communication, which will improve the esthetic diagnosis and the predictability of the implant-based anterior aesthetic restoration
Modern techniques and materials can be useless if the final outcome does not live up to the patient’s esthetic expectations.
It has always been a challenge to create a smile design, where the final result can be precisely predicted from day one. In some cases, the dentists do build this design directly in the patient’s mouth. However, some leave it to the ceramist that they work with. Most importantly, however, this smile design needs to match the patient’s functional, biological and emotional needs.
To obtain such results, especially when implants are involved, we need very well communicated, interdisciplinary teamwork. Every member of the team (including the specialist, lab technicians and the patient) should be aware of the treatment planning and the anticipated end result, right from the start.
