NRPI – New paradigms in esthetic perio-implantology
This edition deals with the new paro-implant paradigms, and in particular with the impact of digital evolution in smile aesthetics.
The future seems to be moving towards technical simplification with a need to rethink periodontology and implantology, with more predictable, less invasive, more comfortable, less stressful surgery, implementing current Digital Tools while applying the principles basis of our Art. The International Dental Federation, further recalls recently that an unhealthy mouth not only has an impact on general health, but it can also have a serious impact on the emotional, social, mental and physical well-being of patients! It is therefore important to learn lessons for the well-being of our patients. The challenge in perio-implantology is to manage the hard tissue/soft tissue complex and to keep the natural appearance of the patient’s dentition. The creation of an aesthetic smile, with a gingival architecture in harmony with natural teeth or dental or implants restorations, remains a formidable challenge in dentistry. These two entities must be in harmony and create an inseparable symbiosis.
But the clinician still has to make our patients understand that if they have not been able to keep their teeth, how are we going to ensure, as practitioners, that they maintain the results of any periodontal surgery and that they keep their implant for as long as possible?
It is therefore essential to invest in patient motivation and maintenance through good personal and professional oral hygiene to finally have a beautiful smile.
