Soft tissue profile and aesthetic considerations

Presented by Dr Nicholas Boardman

Recreating perfect dental anatomy, including soft tissue form, is the desired goal of any dental reconstruction, but delivering it can be demanding if not entirely impossible. Explore what to look for and how to plan cases for predictability and achieving aesthetic outcomes.

You will learn how to:

  • Identify the low-risk and high-risk aesthetic cases 
  • Recognise warning signs for expected poor outcomes
  • Improve aesthetic outcomes.

The visual outcome: How to plan for an overall aesthetic result

Presented by Dr Simon Watson

Treatment planning for replacement of missing teeth, with implant-supported restorations requires special attention to not just the ‘tooth’ form, but also soft tissue factors, such as ridge form and the emergence profile of the restoration.

You will learn how to:

  • Appreciate the role of the soft tissues and ridge form as the foundation of the restoration 
  • Recognise how the abutment design can influence the tooth form
  • Increase patient satisfaction through improved aesthetic outcomes for the implant supported restorations.
