About the Webinar

Whereas implantology evolved in time, clinicians’ success criteria have also progressed. While early on adequate osteointegration was sufficient for clinicians, nowadays the aim is to achieve optimal functional and esthetic results while providing patients with a “natural dentition feeling”. Furthermore, technological advancements such as abundant availability of 3D imaging, intraoral scanners, digital workflow, and variety of implant designs made implant placement possible even for otherwise would be considered “impossible cases”. Thus, an optimal implant treatment goal can be achieved with predictable implant placement surrounded with adequate hard and soft tissue. Often times that can only be achieved with successful bone regeneration and necessary mucogingival/soft tissue modifications. Clinical cases and good long-term prognoses will also be shared in this presentation.

Dr. Uzel has proudly held faculty positions at Boston University School of Dental Medicine and at the University of Pennsylvania School of Dental Medicine where he was involved in clinical and basic science research on periodontal disease, connective tissue, implantology, and bone biology. He co-authored many scientific articles and book chapters on the findings of his research. From his scientific background, Dr. Uzel takes an evidence-based approach to treatment in order to recommend the most suitable treatments. Dr. Uzel’s currently practices in New Jersey at the Mercer Center for Implants & Periodontics at Princeton.
