Commercial Supporter: 3Shape

This CDEWorld thematic eBook features two continuing education (CE) articles. The first CE article presents guidelines for 3-dimensional implant placement that help achieve optimal functional and esthetic outcomes, with an emphasis on evaluation of the natural esthetic zone as a crucial aspect of implant treatment planning. A second CE article discusses strategic positioning of implants for patients who require implant-retained overdentures, and describes protocols to ensure that an overdenture achieves full adaptation to the edentulous ridge.

CE 1: Centering Implants With the Gingival Zenith in the Anterior Region
Edgard El Chaar, DDS, MS; Gretchen Stern, DDS; and Brett Weatherington, DDS
This article presents guidelines for 3-dimensional implant placement that can help achieve optimal functional and esthetic outcomes and examines how, when positioning an implant mesiodistally, centering it in line with the gingival zenith, as opposed to simply centering it in the restorative space, results in a restoration with superior esthetics and a more lifelike emergence profile that can improve soft-tissue health and access for hygiene. A case report is presented to demonstrate these concepts.
