Information

Contemporary patient expectations have made esthetics a major requisite of all treatment plans, especially in situations where there is a high smile line. Although new restorative materials have highly improved predictability and esthetic outcomes, soft and hard tissue management play a fundamental role when working in esthetic areas. To achieve ideal esthetics, preservation of the natural soft and hard tissue architecture is a primary clinical objective. These new proposed techniques that combine biology to modern technologies, illustrate the importance of pre-prosthetic soft and hard tissue management when working both in the aesthetic and functional areas.

The Course will be divided in 1 full day from 8am to 8pm and will cover all soft and hard tissue regeneration topics – It will include a hands on part using the doctors patient 3D printed CTscan individualized model.
