Esthetic complications associated with implant therapy can have a devastating effect on the final outcome of treatment.

Emphasis will be given to risk assessment and proper treatment planning principles.
Topics of discussion include:
1. Pre-operative risk assessment of critical factors associated with esthetic complications
2. How to avoid esthetic complications
3. Management of the ailing implants ( (labial tissue recession, esthetic failures, etc.)
