The past few years have brought a paradigm shift, as guidelines for surgical and restorative approaches have changed dramatically. Learn to fine-tune workups to create the results that are as close to natural replacements as possible. This lecture will focus on the latest advances incorporating evidence-based data. Attendees will review a unique sequential treatment planning approach that can result in successful outcomes. Emphasis will be given to the use of 3D treatment planning as it relates to the diagnostic workup and the use of computer guided surgery. Multiple provisional options and/or interim Hawley prosthesis appliances will be reviewed to attain ideal aesthetic results. Long-term follow-up will be shown as it relates to these approaches.
