Watch the first video in this series: Anterior Implants and Triangular Teeth One of the most important treatment planning considerations in anterior implants is facial prominence. There are two components, root prominence and facial inclination of the crown of the tooth. Facial prominence fo the root of a tooth prior to extraction and implant placement is
One of the first things I look at when treatment planning for anterior implant dentistry is the shape of the adjacent tooth crowns. Triangular teeth mean the case is high risk for optimal esthetics. When there are square or ovoid teeth in the smile I take a deep breath as obtaining optimal esthetics will be much more predictable. In this video I will talk
Anterior dental implant treatment planning requires us to focus as much or more on the "pink esthetics" than we do on the "white esthetics". The number one risk with anterior implants is poor gingival esthetics and papilla form. To this end we use what we call the PES/WES score to evaluate the results of placing anterior implants and restorations.
