Implant restoration in the anterior region represents a particular challenge for dentists because even the most functional implant cannot be considered a success if the patient is still unhappy with their smile. Attention must be given to ensuring a high survival rate and a low complication rate, without sacrificing esthetics. In this book, the authors pass on their experience based on well-documented clinical cases and discuss all relevant aspects from the biologic basics and planning to surgery to prosthetic restoration in this challenging area. Modern microsurgical procedures for the augmentation of hard and soft tissue and plastic periodontal surgery are a special focus. Through numerous clinical photographs and schematic drawings, each procedure, whether simple or complex, is reproduced in comprehensive detail.
