With a focus on oral surgery and prosthodontic techniques, this book presents effective implant treatment strategies for the esthetic restoration of anterior teeth. In addition to reviewing biologic principles, treatment planning, indications, esthetic analysis, and prosthetic options, the author details key considerations in each stage of treatment, including gentle tooth extraction, precise implant positioning, criteria for one- and two-stage implant placement, and most importantly, a wide range of soft tissue management techniques to prevent or compensate for tissue loss in the esthetic zone. With ample cases presented in a step-by-step fashion, this book is a useful resource that can help clinicians avoid failures and achieve optimal esthetic success.
