When presented with atrophic arches, clinicians often turn to invasive techniques such as bone grafting or maxillary sinus augmentation. However, using tilted implants instead can avoid these aggressive procedures, allowing the implant support to be moved posteriorly and for longer implants to be chosen. The implants can be loaded immediately to support a full-arch fixed prosthesis in multiple configurations, such as All-on-4, transsinus implants, zygomatic implants, or the authors’ signature V-II-V technique. This book first presents the science and clinical evidence behind the various protocols using tilted implants, then proceeds to discuss patient evaluation, diagnostics, and planning before diving into the methods themselves. Procedures are discussed separately for each arch, highlighted by dozens of clinical cases representing a diverse range of initial situations. In addition to the surgical protocols, methods for fabricating provisional and definitive prostheses are laid out with each step illustrated and explained. This comprehensive volume truly covers everything a clinician needs to know to use tilted implants with great success for their patients.
