This new implant rehabilitation series considers the patientís longevity and overall physical health, rather than just esthetics, to provide a completely new approach to patient consultation and implant therapy. The authors treatment plan with consideration for the deterioration of orofacial muscles and explain methods for recovering function and rehabilitating the patientís entire expression. The authors bring a decade of research on how to recover the patientís lost function with implant placement and immediate loading. Treatments performed using the orofacial muscle training described in this book will lead to marked improvements in patient function. Orofacial muscle training during immediate loading with an implant-supported provisional restoration will improve facial appearance as well as the function of the facial expression and masticatory muscles. Treating not only the dental issues but also the patientís posture and muscles of facial expression improves the outcome of treatment dramatically. Filled with cases of orofacial muscle training collected by the International Society of Osseointegration (ISO) and the Japanese Academy for International Dentistry (JAID), this book is the clinicianís guide to creating treatment goals together with patients.
