Focusing on reestablishing masticatory function and the best options for improving esthetics, the book provides a full understanding of all aspects of implant dentistry.
Chapters cover current concepts for implant dentistry, treatment planning for alveolar bone defects, esthetic areas, and posterior areas, and oral rehabilitation, grounded in the scientific literature.
