This easy-to-use manual is a guide to how osseointegrated implants can be included as an alternative in restorative situations and how treatment planning can improve long-term prognosis and predictability. Consolidating up-to-date knowledge on osseointegration, the book is organized and illustrated for clarity. The full range of tooth-loss situations and their treatment options are described. Chapters are devoted to each of eight patient categories defined by location and extent of tooth loss. Outlines cover treatment goals, presurgical needs, and considerations including position and number of implants: space limitations; ridge width; bone height; cantilevers, angulation and occlusion; implant placement; and esthetic evaluation. Chapters on patient education and economy, and treatment planning, sequencing, and procedures provide sample letters, forms, and flowsheets ready for use.
