Demand for dental implants as a reliable long-term option to replace missing teeth has risen dramatically. However, situations remain that pose challenges to practitioners and the treatment process. Written by renowned clinicians and supported by cases contributed by expert practitioners, the newest volume of the ITI Treatment Guide series highlights the integration and management of peri-implant soft tissues. It discusses soft tissue management before and during implant placement and during supportive peri-implant therapy and addresses the techniques and materials used for peri-implant soft tissue augmentation and replacement as well as the treatment of peri-implant soft-tissue dehiscences. This volume offers clinicians a comprehensive overview of various evidence-based techniques and treatment approaches for use in daily practice, with a focus on current techniques and materials.
