The Atlas of Dental Implant Surgery demonstrates how to achieve the best possible surgical and aesthetic results when placing implants. This descriptive and practical guide appeals to the dentist/oral surgeon who is in the process of learning dental implant procedures, or who needs to refine his/her skills. Topics include: placement of implants in both the mandible and the maxilla; placing implants in the patient with no teeth; placing the new zygomaticus implant; placing implants with or without grafting other tissue from the patient; and augmenting and enhancing the gingiva that surrounds the esthetic implant site.Highly illustrated, full-colour atlas format serves as a practical guide to placing dental implants. Appropriate for clinicians at all experience levels. Each chapter addresses a different area of the mouth or specific surgical technique. The prosthetic plan is discussed as it relates to each specific surgical procedure and includes information on treatment planning, presurgical guidelines for surgical success, detailed surgical techniques, and postoperative follow-up. Chapters are divided logically into two sections (The Mandible and The Maxilla), making it easy for readers to find key topics. In the Mandible section, various approaches to augmentation of the atrophic mandible are discussed, including a case that utilizes distraction osteogenesis. Detailed cases of posterior mandible surgery demonstrate onlay bone harvesting and grafting the deficient ridge. The Maxilla section features sinus grafting, hard and soft tissue procedures, and the relatively new zygomaticus implant procedure. Multiple cases are presented to illustrate a broad range of conditions.
