Georg Mailath-Pokorny: Optimal implant positioning for long-term tissue maintenance
- Critical factors for long-term functional and aesthetic outcomes in immediate implants
- 3D implant positioning as a key factor to long-term outcomes
- Pink Esthetic Score (PES) in long-term follow-up
- Immediate implant placement and provisional restorations general session

Placing implants immediately in fresh extraction sockets is a technically-sensitive procedure, which calls for careful consideration of several factors during diagnosis and treatment planning. One critically important factor for long-term soft tissue maintenance is the dental implant’s sagital position.
This lecture will focus on the decision-making process around the 3D implant positioning based on socket resorption patterns and bone and soft tissue characteristics. Scientific data related to the impact on long-term esthetic results of this approach as measured by the Pink Esthetic Score (PES) will be discussed.
