About this book


This book concisely elucidates the science underlying implant treatment in the aesthetic zone in partially edentulous patients and clearly describes the techniques and protocols used by world-leading experts in the field. The book is divided into four parts that address treatment planning; site preparation (hard and soft tissue augmentation); immediate implant placement and provisional restoration; and the design, fabrication, and delivery of the definitive implant prosthesis. Complex cases of this nature present a significant challenge to even the most well informed and experienced of doctors. Implants in the Aesthetic Zone has been specifically crafted to meet all the needs of the clinician involved in their management, providing a reliable road map for interdisciplinary implant treatment in clinical practice. The authors have been carefully selected from a wide range of fields for their expertise in particular areas of implant science or treatment.

“The purpose of this book is to make us aware of the importance of the interdisciplinary approach. Surgeons, restorative clinicians, and dental technicians must have a well-established protocol, adapted to the types of cases. This book supports those who want to improve their treatment technique by providing step by step protocols and many clinical cases.” (Florin-Eugen, Stomatology EDU Journal, Vol. 7 (1), 2020)
