TOPIC: Socket shields technique - a Facebook evidence based approach to implantology
As dental implants are increasingly used in the cosmetically challenging situations, crestal bone changes are of increasing concern. A multitude of treatment concepts have been presented to manage such changes. A recently suggested treatment modality is the Huerzeler shield / socket shield. This is particularly true when observing social media. However, is there enough or any evidence base to apply this technique in private practice?
This lecture will focus on understanding the physiological changes after tooth extraction and techniques suitable to achieve predictable cosmetic outcomes of implant treatments in the aesthetic zone
