The Dental Assistant’s Role in Creating the Esthetic Periodontal Environment

True esthetics come from a balance of morphology and color of the dentition against the backdrop of healthy periodontium in a functionally sound occlusion. A major challenge is to reconstruct natural biologic parameters when teeth are lost. Tooth loss in the esthetic zone can be handled by placement of dental implants or by conventional crown and bridge procedures. Whichever route is chosen, the key to esthetic success lies in the preservation of facial and interproximal alveolar bone and symmetry of the soft tissue envelope that surrounds and frames the teeth. Only then can the contours and color of the dental units be exploited to create a maximal esthetic dental reconstruction.

In this course you will learn the following:

  • Understanding techniques to maximize esthetic outcomes for ridge socket preservation with dental lasers
  • Specific cases where dental lasers (hard and soft tissue) can be used to create an esthetic periodontal environment
  • How utilizing a tissue laser can shorten and deliver a more predictable healing time with less post-operative discomfort
  • Constructing a beautiful provisional restoration with pontic design that supports periodontal tissues during the healing phase of treatment
