5th Annual Innovations in Periodontics Symposium

Presented by Joseph Kan, DDS, MS and UTSD Dept. of Periodontics

Friday, Oct. 9


Achieving anterior implant esthetics is a challenging and demanding procedure. To create implant restorations with harmonious gingival contours that emulate nature is a fusion of science and art. Understanding the biologic and physiologic limitations of the soft and hard tissue will facilitate predictability in simple to complex esthetic situations. 

This presentation will encompass Orthodontics, Periodontics and Restorative dentistry. Dr. Kan will focus on current implant treatment philosophies, methodologies for replacing currently missing teeth, and managing patients who are losing teeth in the esthetic zone. This course will emphasize diagnosis/treatment planning and surgical/prosthetic management of soft and hard tissue for optimal anterior implant esthetics. 

 Additionally, the Department of Periodontics will display faculty/resident case reviews that offer discussion and interaction from what is evident and not evident in periodontal treatment today; which procedures to refer out and which to retain considering a treatment plans that works for our ever-changing, demographically challenged patient community.


At the completion of this course, you will be able to:

  • Identify prognostic variables for anterior implant esthetics
  • Initiate immediate implant placement
  • Utilize Inter-disciplinary treatment planning for implant esthetics
  • Manage papilla and surgical/prosthetic complications
  • Discuss and interact in challenging case reviews
  • Understand the advancement of dentistry today and the correlation of best implant practices.
