Today, most tooth replacement done in the aesthetic zone using dental implants is with a delayed surgical protocol. Unfortunately, this delay can result in loss of both soft and hard oral tissues during the healing period, necessitating guided tissue strengthening or a bone grafting procedure either prior to or at the time of implant placement.
If a delayed placement protocol is used or if grafting procedures are ineffective, the prosthetic phase of implant dentistry must restore the missing structures artistically and functionally to integrate with the existing dental structures.
This presentation reviews a technique that provides for prosthetic restoration of soft and hard tissues while enhancing the aesthetic results of the replaced dentition through a unique removable implant prosthesis design.
