Maximizing the peri-implant tissue expression for implant supported restorations in the anterior aesthetic area

Dr. Luigi Canullo

The present lecture will show up a new concept implant with convergent collar the shape of the implant neck may allow a more favourable fixture position overall in the aesthetic area.

During the webinar, a new concept implant with a convergent collar will be presented.

This implant could be an option in several clinical scenarios, however, in the aethetic area it may represent a plus.

In fact, to prevent esthetic failures in the esthetic area, two different strategies have been proposed:

Immediate restoration of post-extraction site using bone-level implant in association to site regeneration plus connective tissue graft, or delayed tissue-level implant insertion in association with GBR.
Presence of the IAJ at the bone level, crown overlapping, need for a supplementary surgery (immediate approach) and risk of titanium divergent implant neck exposure (delayed approach) represent drawbacks to compensate post-extraction tissue shrinkage.

Approacing post-extraction sites with the present implant, a more favourable fixture position could be obtained
