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?

Learning Outcomes:

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
