This book masterfully illustrates the importance of soft tissues for the esthetic and functional success of implants. The authors trace their paths for each clinical scenario step by step and share how to master the technical management of the periodontal tissues. The proposed treatments combine innovative and traditional solutions to tackle every situation, including "impossible" clinical cases. This work represents an undisputed point of reference for peri-implant soft tissue surgery and offers a guided journey between biology, esthetics, and surgery.
