Step-by-Step Surgical Considerations and Techniques

  • Robert Durand
  • René Voyer


The management of the edentulous patient may represent a challenge in implantology for most surgeons. Careful planning using evidence-based methods will not only facilitate the surgical intervention but might also greatly improve the long-term prognosis of implant-supported prostheses. In this chapter, the anatomy of the mandible with a surgical perspective is reviewed in detail. The pre-, intra-, and postoperative elderly patient management including strategies to reduce anxiety, risk, and morbidity is reviewed. Mucogingival considerations, keratinized gingiva augmentation procedures, and steps for optimal implant placement are illustrated with clinical cases. Detailed pre- and postoperative instructions are presented as well as management of common surgical and postsurgical complications.
