How Implant Prosthesis and Soft Tissue Management Impact the Long Term Success


In implant dentistry, understanding the surgical aspects, is only the first step for a long term success. The prosthetic factors are just as important as the surgical one and are fundamental for the bone preservation around our implants.

During the lecture will be evaluated all the important aspects that can guide the surgeon and the prosthodontist in the path for a long term success.

Starting for the ideal planning accordingly to the anatomical condition present in the implant site and following the esthetic analysis of the patient.

Then the IFFGM ( Ideal Future Free Gingival Margin) concept, is really useful to plan in a proper way the implant position and the surgical approach to develop the necessary bone volume and soft tissue profile in all the possible scenario

Effort will be given to how important is to have and ideal soft tissue condition to avoid bone loss around our implants, planning how to manage the soft tissue to maintain the planned bone volume along the time.

At the end will be taken in consideration the prosthetic factors that that are able to influence the long term stability of the  rehabilitation as the emergence profile, the “one abutment one time” concept, and the ideal material in the transmusocal path.

Finally, through the “digital patient concept” will be evaluated how to realize esthetically driven rehabilitations able to match the esthetic expectation of the most demanding patients.
