How to master Esthetics in implant molar rehabilitation. SSA Concept
Esthetics in Dentistry intuitively refers to the anterior zone. Nevertheless, these « esthetic indications » represent , thankfully a very little part of our daily routine as an implantologist. In the meantime, more than 60% of the tooth involve 1st molar replacement. As of now, very few publications are addressing timing protocols and predictability of the overall treatment for this highly implanted region. Ιn this perspective, the use of an anatomical CAD-CAM generated healing abutment after immediate implant placement for molar sites has the potential to improve treatment workflow from a surgical as well as prosthetic standpoint resulting in soft tissue stability and esthetic achievement. This, so called SSA concept (Sealing Socket Abutment), offers a predictable solution for wound closure and tissue stabilization during healing time. Additionally, It provides minimally invasive approach, and significantly reduces the conventional overall treatment length.
This lecture will discuss:
– Modern and up-to-date treatment strategies through SSA Concept
– Step by step digital and conventional workflow in 3 appointments
– Present ongoing research and publications from cases treated with 5 years follow up .
