Course 1
Implant and Periodontal Plastic
Surgery in the Esthetic Zone Before and After

We live in a culture that judges its members by appearances. To us, a smile echoes health, wealth, demeanor and worth. Any departure from the ideal —missing front teeth or altered gingival contours especially—devalues a person.

This course trains you to perfect the dentition with periodontal plastic surgery and to restore anterior edentulous areas with implants indistinguishable from natural teeth.

We provide a step-by-step tutorial that enables you to diagnose, design and refi ne soft tissue and implant cosmetics for your own patients. Live surgery and a hands-on practicum shall cement your knowledge. In particular, we will showcase the newest as well as most predictable grafting methods known to attain a harmonious smile.
