Esthetic dentistry and implant dentistry continue to grow in patient demand and professional popularity. More now than ever, clinicians are faced with the need to combine form with function, art with science. The considerable scientific and technical leaps that have been made in this field mean that this goal is now more achievable, andFundamentals of Esthetic Implant Dentistry seeks to share these advances with practitioners and students alike.

Building on the foundations of Dr. El Askary′s previous book, Reconstructive Aesthetic Implant Surgery: Fundamentals of Esthetic Implant Dentistry contains a wealth of new material to run the gamut of esthetic dentistry. Maintaining a focus on implant dentistry, the book guides the reader through clinical decision making, diagnosis, treatment planning, execution, and post–operative care. A thorough examination of pre–treatment planning, including an extensive section on whole–face assessment and smile design, provides a strong base for achievable and desirable esthetic outcomes. Full case studies demonstrate step–by–step the procedural practicalities of established and innovative surgical techniques, while anchoring them in solid scientific research.

Designed to improve and expand the reader′s repertoire of clinical skills, this expertly–crafted text serves as an indispensable companion to practitioners and students of periodontics, prosthodontics, oral and maxillofacial surgery, and general dentistry, bringing to its readers the freshest and best in esthetic dentistry.
