This book describes a methodology for creating biomimetic restorations that harmonize with the remaining natural teeth. The author analyze the methodology for each phase of work, including the diagnosis and treatment planning, the stages of preparation and fabrication, and the cementation of the definitive restoration. All the essential components are covered, including occlusal analysis, soft tissue management, color selection, implant considerations, and guidelines for home maintenance. The merits of a multidisciplinary approach are shown within the a functional esthetic paradigm in which the prosthodontist, surgeon, orthodontist, and dental technician work as a close-knit team to ensure a predictable and reproducible result.

Sinus augmentation has become a routine surgical procedure to increase the height of the edentulous atrophied posterior maxilla. Numerous techniques have been used successfully, allowing a high survival rate of implants placed after sinus elevation. This book highlights the anatomical landmarks and describes, using clinical cases, the latest ultrasonic devices used for both lateral and crestal approaches, including their possible complications. With step-by-step clinical images, this book will help the clinician to make rational decisions for maxillary sinus augmentation, and to treat any complications that occur during surgery. This is an extremely accessible and up-to-date resource that every dentist should have in their office, for clinical guidance in their treatment planning or when performing sinus augmentation.
Contemporary Protocols for Anterior Single-Tooth Implants
Gamborena, Iñaki / Blatz, Markus
This book beautifully showcases the concepts, materials, and techniques essential to mastering the most demanding of all surgical and restorative challenges, the anterior single-tooth implant. To achieve the long-lasting esthetic and functional results displayed in this clinical masterpiece, one must attend to the myriad details associated with each phase of treatment. Designed for a new generation of visually oriented learners, the book presents step-by-step clinical procedures that unfold like the frames of a film, so that readers may “watch” at their own pace and pause as necessary to contemplate these fine details. This experience will spark the curiosity, creativity, and imagination of even the most veteran surgeon.
A Patient-Oriented Strategy: Planning | Treatment Procedures | Longevity | Esthetics | Function | Dental Technology
Wolfart, Stefan / Contributors: Harder, Sönke / Reich, Sven / Sailer, Irena / Weber, Volker
While a wealth of specialist literature is available on the surgical aspects of implant dentistry, there is no comprehensive, systematic textbook on the implant-supported prosthodontic rehabilitation of the patient – which is the true goal of almost every implant treatment.
A step-by-step treatment strategy
Written by a highly respected and innovative surgeon, this book presents an unconventional implant treatment strategy for the esthetic restoration of anterior teeth that has proven effective over years of clinical experience. In addition to reviewing biologic principles, treatment planning, indications, esthetic analysis, and prosthetic options, the author focuses on factors such as gentle tooth extraction, precise implant positioning, criteria for one- and two-stage implant placement, and most importantly, a wide range of soft tissue management techniques in his approach.
TMJ pathology related to occlusion: etiopathology and treatment
Includes CD-ROM with more than 200 Animations
This book offers a meticulous analysis of occlusion, one of the most important specialties in dentistry, because a healthy stomatognathic system depends on it. The book covers the dentition, tooth and implant bone, gingiva, tooth and implant-borne prostheses, masticatory muscles, ligaments, TMJ, articular capsules, disks, etc.
The problems that can lead to “malocclusion” depend on patient emotional stress, grinding, clenching, and the jaw being out of occlusion and its proper position. The book also covers referred pain, which can mimic joint symptoms caused by neck and masticatory muscle problems. Headaches and facial pain may be diagnosed as being atypical and may be really due to occlusionrelated muscle problems (masseters, temporalis, etc.), including neck muscles. There are many!

This book is the fruit of a long friendship between two periodontists whose aim is to promote periodontal health in Europe. They have been actively involved in the activities of the European Federation of Periodontology for the past 20 years and have participated together in the organizing committees of several EuroPerio meetings. Both authors have considerable clinical experience in periodontology and implantology.
A Microsurgical Approach
Zuhr, Otto / Hürzeler, Marc
In this book, the authors provide the first comprehensive overview of the basic principles, indications and clinical techniques of plastic-esthetic periodontal and implant microsurgery.
It is an exemplary blend of scientific knowledge and practical experience. All salient issues are analyzed on the basis of the available scientific literature and the current clinical evidence. The microsurgical procedures presented in the book are explained step-by-step in meticulously illustrated case examples. Checklists for the necessary materials, instruments and work steps are added to facilitate practical implementation of the microsurgical procedures. Last but not least, the authors provide instructions on how to manage all major complications of each procedure.
This book is without doubt one of the foremost oral surgery publications in recent years and is a must for every implantologist and periodontist.

Practical Implant Dentistry offers a practical and pragmatic approach to implant dentistry for the discerning practitioner involved in this very exciting field. The second edition of this book describes in detail the clinical procedures required to carry out a broad range of treatments available in implant dentistry today, illustrated by updated full-colour images.
Anatomical textbooks and atlases often fail to meet the clinical demands of defining intraoperative structures for oral implantologists because of the overwhelmingly detailed minutia. Because certain anatomical landmarks are hard to illustrate in a diagram format, students and professionals can be confused when confronted with actual specimens in the dissecting room or in the operatory.
This book, however, shows the structures of the maxilla, the mandible, and the nasal cavity as they actually exist in the dissected or live body, through the presentation of cadaver specimens and clinical cases. Several of the chapters include full-page images of specific cadaver sections with all the relevant anatomical parts labeled for convenience. Cone beam computed tomography images are also presented to show how this technology can be used to measure the bone density, the width of the alveolar ridge, and the exact distance available for implant placement under or above certain anatomical landmarks prior to implant selection.
This book will simplify the learning and execution of implant-related surgical procedures in a region of the body that presents special topographic and anatomical difficulties.
Minimally invasive surgical techniques are being increasingly used throughout medicine, often replacing conventional surgery. In many instances conventional techniques cannot match the outcome obtained with them.
Transcrestal sinus floor elevation has become increasingly popular and a logical target for these innovations, but recent reports cast doubt on the efficiency and predictable success of the technique.
This book is intended to alert the reader to the shortcomings of the various techniques of transcrestal sinus floor elevation, with the intention of providing a blueprint to help develop transcrestal sinus floor elevation into a surgical technique that meets the general medical standards of a minimally invasive procedure.

The SAC Classification has been in use by the ITI as part of its educational program since 2003.
This volume represents an indispensable reference tool for all practitioners when taking decisions in regard to the selection of individual treatment approaches.
The clear descriptions and classification allow clinicians to assess the degree of complexity and risk involved in individual cases and the relevant skills required to provide the treatment.
This book serves not only as an aid in planning therapy for clinicians but also as a tool for academics when designing implant training programs with incremental levels of difficulty.
