Tricking Nature: Prosthetically Driven Implant Dentistry

The evolution of concepts and technologies brings new perspectives regarding the ultimate goal in aesthetic implant dentistry: soft tissue architecture preservation. One of the key factors for maintaining the soft tissue architecture is to have a prosthetically driven implant dentistry, especially in the aesthetic zone, where the therapeutic approach gets complicated.

Therefore, the conference objective is the debate of restorative concepts in Implantology regarding the anterior zone, from tooth extraction to the prosthetic part of implant-supported restoration, in a minimally invasive way, respecting as much as possible the biology and of course, planning before doing. Applying a correct implant-prosthodontic concept leads to predictable implant restorations, and keeps us on the safe side, stress free implant dentistry.

Thus, achieving the aesthetic perfection is no longer an option but an obligation, that’s why the conference addresses not only to the surgical or prosthetic dentistry specialists, but also to general practitioners that are willing to deal with implants in the anterior zone.
