  • Title: Biologically Oriented Preparation Technique – From Natural Teeth to Implants
  • Lecturer: Aman Bharti
  • eCPD: Development Outcome C


The Biologically Oriented Preparation Technique is a paradigm shift in the management of soft tissue around natural teeth and implant prosthetics.

With accurate vertical preparations and provisionals, we can sculpt the ideal ‘landing zone’ to achieve stable and long-lasting restorations.

The aim of the lecture is to introduce this new concept, which is more than just a vertical preparation. The apical and coronal movement of tissue will be demonstrated defying conventional periodontal protocols.

The B.O.P.T concept is an essential tool necessary for the aesthetic and functional rehabilitation in the aesthetic zone. Using this concept, tissue management is fast, predictable and most importantly, stable.

  • To understand the principal of B.O.P.T on natural teeth and Implant Restorations.
  • To understand how vertical preparations and provisional restorations allow us to deliver predictable soft tissue in the aesthetic zone


  • Understand biological width and its modern-day applications
  • Understand the Vertiprep
  • Understand how to fabricate provisional restorations for the BOPT Concept
  • Understand how this concept is changing the way we place and restore dental implants.
