Complete Arch Restorations with Static and Dynamic Digitally-Assisted Implant Positioning and Soft Tissue Interface Reconfiguration

This presentation will focus on a novel, minimally-invasive, digitally-assisted protocol to deliver complete implant-supported restorations with a direct and natural emergence from the soft tissue interface. Static and dynamic computer-guided surgery and prosthetics work in synergy with a facially-driven virtual treatment plan, digitally printed surgical template, minimally-invasive implant positioning, and prefabricated implant-supported screw-retained interim restorations. The challenging interplay with the surrounding gingival framework, often overlooked in the extensive rehabilitation supported by straight and tilted implants, will be emphasized through a step-by-step clinical protocol to deliver a natural scalloped gingival architecture without any pink prosthetic emergence and interface. A solid scientific background based on clinical research conducted in the last 10 years will support the novel clinical protocols to achieve the maximum aesthetic and functional integration of the implant-supported restorations.

At the conclusion of this lecture, participants will be able to:

  1. Manage the bone and soft tissue interface full arch restoration in order to enhance the long term clinical outcome
  2. Understand the benefits and drawbacks of using digitally-guided surgery and prosthetics
  3. Gain knowledge of the use of graft-free implant solutions based on tilting implants and understand how to achieve on a natural aesthetic integration on a daily basis
