A NOVEL DIGITAL WORKFLOW IN PREDICTABLE FABRICATION OF EMERGENCE PROFILE
FOR IMPLANT RESTORATIONS IN THE ESTHETIC ZONE
This presentation will focus on the importance of a fully digital workflow by a correctly designed peri-implant soft tissue and go over the process to transfer the emergence profile of the provisional to the definitive restoration. This technique allows for the fabrication of predictable definitive restorations, appreciating the peri-implant soft tissue in the esthetic zone.
At the completion of the course, participants will be able to discuss:
How to control and shape the peri-implant tissue
