Program Track: Treatment of Inflammatory Periodontal Diseases
Moderator: Nick Caplanis
Speakers: Markus B. Hürzeler, Joseph Kan, and Dennis Tarnow
Management of the malposed implant is extremely
demanding, especially in the aesthetic zone. Malposed
implants often lead to peri-implant soft tissue deficiencies
and compromised prosthetic outcomes. This presentation
will focus on diagnosis, treatment planning, and execution of
implant placement to reduce the risk of implant malposition.
Management concepts for immediate implant placement and
consecutive adjacent implants in the aesthetic zone will be
discussed. Clinical research, histologic evidence, and novel
innovations in immediate post-extraction socket therapy will
be presented. Innovative soft tissue grafting procedures and
prosthetic solutions will also be revealed that can enhance
soft tissue health and aesthetics in these situations. Lastly, the
timing and sequencing of implant removal will be described,
including management of the soft and hard tissues.
• Explain how to diagnosis and treat a malposed implant.
• Minimize the risk of implant malposition from pretreatment
• Implement novel surgical approaches for enhancing
keratinized attached mucosa around implants.
• Design a treatment plan to remove a malposed or ailing
implant in the aesthetic zone including treatment timing,
sequence, and tissue management.
