Lecture Synopsis

    Achieving anterior implant esthetics is challenging and demanding.

    Creating implant restorations with harmonious gingival contour that emulate nature is a fusion of some science and lots of art. Understanding the biologic and physiologic limitations of soft and hard tissue is key to facilitate predictability in complex esthetic situations.

    This course will focus on current implant treatment philosophies and methodologies for replacing currently missing teeth and the management of patients who will be losing a tooth or teeth in the esthetic zone.

    Emphasis will be placed on diagnosis and treatment planning, complex case and complication management, interdisciplinary treatment options, occlusion management, and soft and hard tissue regeneration for optimal anterior implant esthetics.


    -Prognostic keys for predictable implant esthetics

    -Immediate vs. Delayed vs. Early tooth replacements concepts

    -Bone & Soft Tissue Regeneration Concepts

    -Papilla management

    -Gingival recession and Papilla loss

    -Management of surgical and prosthetic complications

    -Restorative Emergence Profile Contouring (From Provisionalization to Final Crown)

    -Root Shield: What I learned over the past 13 years?


    Dr. Joseph Kan completed his specialty training in Prosthodontics as well as the Master degree from the Implant Surgery from Loma Linda University School of Dentistry (LLUSD) in 1997. He is currently a Professor in the Department of Restorative Dentistry and the research coordinator for the Implant Dentistry Program in LLUSD. He also maintains a private practice limited to Prosthodontics and Implant Surgery.

    In 1997, Dr. Kan was the recipient of the Best Research Award in the 12th annual meeting of the Academy of Osseointegration. He also received the Judson C. Hinckey Scientific Award from the Journal of Prosthetic Dentistry in 2003 and the Robert James Achievement Award in 2005.

    Dr. Kan is on the Periodontology/Implantology Editorial Board of the Practical Periodontics & Aesthetic Dentistry. He is a member of the American Dental Association, Academy of Osseointegration, American College of Prosthodontists, American Academy of Fixed Prosthodontics and an associate member of the Pacific Coast Society of Prosthodontists.
