Efficient and precise methods of identifying various risk factors and predictability at the time of initial consultation utilizing advanced digital technologies will be discussed. The course will also cover various surgical treatment modalities to restore form and function. Complications related to esthetically and clinically demanding areas of the anterior maxilla and posterior mandible will also be emphasized.
