This latest volume in the ITI Treatment Guide series starts out with the most recent statements and recommendations from the 5th ITI Consensus Conference, followed by a detailed protocol for the evaluation and treatment planning of patients with esthetic demands requiring single-tooth replacement with a dental implant. Various surgical situations commonly encountered in the esthetic zone are presented along with recommended treatment protocols. In addition, the many aspects of clinical management of the planned implant site (before and after placement) are discussed including the use of provisional prostheses, laboratory communication, abutment design, restorative material selection, and delivery of the definitive restoration. Fourteen complex case presentations form the core of this volume with step-by-step descriptions of procedures for achieving stable long-term esthetic outcomes. This volume provides a comprehensive, evidence-based approach to single-tooth replacement in the esthetic zone, from consultation to follow-up, with a focus on current treatment modalities and the materials that present-day implant dentistry has to offer in order to support clinicians in their decision-making processes.
