Giano Ricci
Sunday, June 9
1:30 pm - 2:15 pm
Grand Ballroom (Salon G-K)

Ideal gingival margins are a prerequisite for obtaining optimal esthetic results in periodontic and implant cases, especially in patients with a high lip line. But results are not always predictable, especially in advanced periodontic cases. This presentation will discuss these clinical situations and their prognoses. In addition, localized ridge augmentation can be performed with different techniques, but the end results are not always satisfactory. Therefore, a reliable method for obtaining predictable results will be presented.
