Transitional Restorative Options For Optimal Soft Tissue Design and Aesthetics Around Dental Implants

Transitional prosthesis following teeth extractions and placement of dental implants is an important part of the overall treatment. It provides patients with the necessary function and aesthetics while awaiting for the definitive restorations. The transitional design must protect the tissue following extractions, implants, or bone grafting procedures while it sets the tone for the final restorations. In this course, Dr. H. Ryan Kazemi discusses the options for both fixed and removable transitional restorations during post-surgical healing phase. He also discusses implant-supported transitional restorative options including customized healing abutments and prototype restorations and their role in designing the ideal soft tissue architecture.
