Description

To meet patient expectations, clinicians should make the prosthetic outcome a key consideration during every phase of implant therapy from diagnosis and treatment planning, to surgical placement of the implants, through delivery of the final restoration. The anatomically correct shape of patient-specific components help implement this restorative-driven approach by managing soft tissue during the healing phase to establish esthetic margins, contours and a natural emergence profile. By keeping the final prosthetic outcome in mind at every step, clinicians can restore missing teeth and be confident of obtaining an esthetic result.

Objectives

Objectives
By approaching implant cases with a prosthetically driven mindset, where the final restoration is visualized from the very beginning and carried through each phase of treatment, clinicians can help ensure predictable and esthetic restorative outcomes. Custom healing abutments control tissue contours during the healing phase to mimic those that surrounded the tooth being replaced, helping to ensure a natural-looking final restoration. Dr. Timothy Kosinski outlines a case where a missing tooth in the anterior maxilla is replaced using a restorative-driven approach, demonstrating how this technique fosters predictable and esthetic outcomes in the most challenging of circumstances.
