Replacing missing teeth with implants in the anterior maxilla remains one of the greatest challenges of today’s dentistry, especially in patients with significant aesthetic demands and a high lip line. Recreating the anatomy and morphology of hard and soft tissues is the critical and determining factor for achieving the goal of an esthetic and harmonic restoration. This presentation will focus on surgical strategies to preserve and reconstruct post-extraction soft and hard tissue deficiencies. Different clinical scenarios though a series of cases will be addressed, including single, as well as, multiple implant restorations in the anterior maxilla. Surgical techniques involving hard and soft tissue grafting at various stages from extraction to restoration will be presented.
- To determine the factors to recreate the morphology and the anatomy
- To evaluate the surgical strategies for smile design
- To discuss the soft tissue grafting methods
