- Interplay between bone, soft tissues and prosthetics determines long-term stability of soft tissues
- An interdisciplinary approach is the key to success.
- Nobel Biocare New York Symposium 2016
- Design and engineering to optimize soft and hard tissue outcomes general session
This presentation will review the contemporary surgical and prosthetic concepts in management of implants in the aesthetic zone with a view to achieving optimum long term esthetics and stability.
The outcomes depend on the clinical management and an understanding and application of the biological factors that influence our treatment outcomes. The optimal management of the interplay between bone, soft tissues and prosthetics determines the esthetic outcome and the long-term stability of soft tissue esthetics. An interdisciplinary approach is the key to success.
