regional – Crown lengthening

Crown lengthening

Lecture and hands-on practical using pigs heads

To diagnose when it would be necessary to crown lengthen a tooth or teeth to assess the clinical situation to achieve predictable long term results. To discuss the biological width and how to recreate this.

To utilise the correct instruments both rotatory and piezo surgery to remove bone and flap design for both functional and aesthetic cases.

We will also be doing a hands on course on pigs heads and practicing the skills to crown lengthen a tooth.

regional – How to avoid complications with implants in the aesthetic zone and how to deal with complications when they occur.

How to avoid complications with implants in the aesthetic zone and how to deal with complications when they occur

The goal is to create a harmonious aesthetic outcome around dental implants that mimics the surrounding dentition and soft-tissue condition. This is difficult to create and maintain long term. Bone remodelling and soft tissue recession are known adverse factors which can negatively impact upon the final long term outcome and the extent of these changes are often considered unpredictable when considering the immediate implant approach.

This presentation will discuss the critical factors associated with case selection; the relevance of the surgical techniques employed and a step by step surgical sequence demonstrating how post-operative changes can be significantly reduced on a predictable basis.

Nevertheless, despite careful planning and execution, adverse outcomes can still occur and this presentation will also highlight the procedures that are required to correct compromised outcomes. Key skills areas for optimizing aesthetic outcomes will also be discussed.

Aims and objectives:

  • to be familiar with the rationale for choosing differing implant treatment options with an emphasis on evidence based dentistry
  • to appreciate the role of differing treatment strategies that are utilized (such as soft tissue grafting) to enhance the aesthetic outcome
  • to be familiar with the procedural steps required to deal with and correct adverse aesthetic outcomes
