Pathophysiology of the Aging Face with Minimally Invasive Treatments and Surgical Therapies

Examining the aging face from skin to skeleton and what to expect from age 20-90 as well as treatments available. The skin, superficial and deep fat compartments, facial musculature, facial ligaments, and the skeleton will all age and require efficient corrective treatment.


  • To understand the complexity of the aging face as well as procedures that can complement aesthetic dental restoration in these patients
  • How minimally invasive procedures such as BOTOX® (neuromodulators), dermal fillers, and non-ablative lasers can give patients their ideal result without serious downtime
  • How surgical procedures such as facelifts, eyelid surgeries, cheek implants, structural fat grafting, otoplasty, and laser skin resurfacing can give patients long-lasting results for years and even decades

Lifelong Craniofacial Changes and Its Implications on Osseo Integrated Implants

For tooth replacement in children and adolescents, the clinical significance of growth of the skull and mandible has been identified. Due to its ankylotic nature, use of dental implants has not been recommended in growing patients. Growth during adulthood has not been a factor considered for restorative treatment planning with dental implants regarding long-term outcomes. Until most recently, the effects of craniofacial growth in the adult patient and dental implants has been absent from the dental literature, partly due to the fact that these changes take many years to manifest themselves. In the past, such clinical observations were absent from the literature due to short observation periods or they were simply overlooked. Now with decades of post treatment observation of single tooth or edentulous implant restorations, it is becoming apparent that for some people there are indeed occlusal, periodontal and asthetic ramifications of this subtle continued development defined as growth through adulthood. The purpose of this presentation is to alert the dental profession to the long-term effects of continued craniofacial growth in adults.


  • Identify Intra-arch stability of teeth relative to implant restorations
  • Understand Inter-arch occlusal stability involving natural teeth opposing implant restorations
  • Discuss anterior esthetic stability of implant restorations, relative adjacent teeth and supporting periodontium

10 Keys for Successful Esthetic-Zone Single
Immediate Implants

This clinical, usable information-packed presentation will identify 10 essential elements for performing immediate single-tooth replacement in the esthetic zone in adult patients with long-term, successful outcomes. Treatment of a single-tooth replacement in the esthetic zone is considered a complex procedure requiring a team approach. This is because once an esthetic complication occurs, restoring the lost hard and soft tissues to their original pre-surgical levels is extremely difficult. The 10 Key conclusions suggest that a team protocol, if strictly followed, would provide high predictability in preventing esthetic complications related to single-tooth implants, and offer proposed guidelines to ensure high success rates.


  • Understand the principles of the “10 Keys to Esthetic Zone Success for Single Immediate Implants in the Adult” (Compendium Cont Ed Dent 2017: RA Levine, J Ganeles, L Gonzaga, H Randel, JYK Kan, CD Evans, ST Chen)
  • Understand the important role that soft tissue grafting plays for a long-term cosmetic result for single tooth implants in the esthetic zone (RA Levine, J Ganeles, JYK Kan, PL Fava. Compendium of Cont Ed Dent 2018)
