Written by a team of renowned authors, this book provides a comprehensive and systematic discussion of implant-supported prosthetic rehabilitation—the ultimate goal of almost all dental implant surgeries. The authors focus on the essential principles of problem-centered design of the prosthesis. With more than 2,000 illustrations and a full complement of treatment algorithms for various clinical situations, it offers coherent, evidence-based strategies for prosthetically driven implant surgery and custom esthetic restorative techniques in a step-by-step manner, from initial planning through prosthetic delivery and follow-up. In addition, because high-quality implant dentistry and implant prosthodontics are possible only with a treatment team that works well together, key aspects of interactions between the implant surgeon and the prosthodontist, the prosthodontist and the dental technician, and the patient and the treatment team are discussed in detail. This book is a must for all clinicians involved in implant restoration and is destined to become a standard reference work.
