Video: The Controversy Over Implant Emergence Profiles

I’ve written a few articles about how to develop an emergence profile for your patient’s implant restoration.  I am a firm believer that you have better cosmetic and hygienic outcomes if you take the time to sculpt the gingiva.

Here’s a video from a lecture I gave last year in Australia on emergence profiles.  I share my thoughts on why there is doubt in our profession as to whether or not this is a useful practice.
