Advanced Esthetic Management of Dental Implants: Surgical and Restorative Considerations to Improve Outcomes
This article demonstrates the importance of proper surgical and prosthetic principles in achieving esthetic implant
results.Successful dental implant therapy in the maxillary anterior dentition requires meticulous attention to surgical
and prosthodontic measures.
Proper diagnosis, extraction technique, implant selection, and placement significantly impact
outcomes. Respect of hard and soft tissue physiology following tooth loss and implant placement requires specific steps
be taken. Management tissue contours properly, via regenerative therapy, results in successful framing of the restoration.
Provisionalization and definitive restorative therapy also impacts the level of esthetic success.The contours of the
temporary abutment and crown develop soft tissue contours for the final restoration. Overcontouring can lead to soft
tissue recession and mucosal asymmetry. Design of the definitive crown(s) is crucial for long-term maintenance of
esthetically acceptable results.
Minimally Invasive Reconstruction in Implant Therapy - The Prosthetic Gingival Restoration
This article presents a reliable and consistent alternative to prosthetically restore cases with an uncertain surgical outcome or for those patients who do not want to undergo regenerative surgical procedures.
Adjusting RPD Clasps

The Art of Exquisite Anterior, Posterior, Single and Multiple Unit Provisionals
Provisional restorations have become a vital diagnostic and assessment tool to evaluate function color, shape, contour, occlusion, periodontal response, implant healing, and overall esthetics.With increased demands being placed on provisional restorations, new materials and techniques are being developed and some existing protocols are being refined to accomplish desired goals.

Vertical or Shoulderless Preparations in Contemporary Prosthodontics
From a biological standpoint, preserving a maximum amount of sound tooth structure, as it is done in vertical preparations, might also offer a more conservative alternative to a horizontal margin design in other clinical conditions such as endodontically treated teeth, vital teeth in young individual, teeth affected by caries at the cervical third. Vertical margins on zirconia crowns have been tested in vitro and clinical reports have been published. A re-evaluation of possible advantages and shortcomings of vertical preparation design in contemporary
