LIVE Interactive Webinar | The 5th Annual Innovations in Periodontics Symposium


Perio Symposium

Friday, October 9, 2020    Live Interactive Webinar 8:00 AM - 12:00 PM CST



Achieving anterior implant esthetics is a challenging and demanding procedure. To create implant restorations with harmonious gingival contours that emulate nature is a fusion of science and art. Understanding the biologic and physiologic limitations of the soft and hard tissue will facilitate predictability in simple to complex esthetic situations. 


This presentation will encompass Orthodontics, Periodontics and Restorative dentistry. Dr. Kan will focus on current implant treatment philosophies, methodologies for replacing currently missing teeth, and managing patients who are losing teeth in the esthetic zone. This course will emphasize diagnosis/treatment planning and surgical/prosthetic management of soft and hard tissue for optimal anterior implant esthetics. 



Additionally, the Department of Periodontics will showcase faculty and resident case reviews that offer discussion and interaction from what is evident and not evident in periodontal treatment of today's ever-changing, demographically-challenged patient community.



Upon completion of the course, you will be able to:

  • Identify prognostic variables for anterior implant esthetics
  • Initiate immediate implant placement
  • Utilize Inter-disciplinary treatment planning for implant esthetics
  • Manage papilla and surgical/prosthetic complications
  • Discuss and interact in challenging case reviews 
  • Understand the advancement of dentistry today and the correlation of best implant practices.
