Implants in the Anterior Maxilla: Aesthetic Challenges

Description

Highly esthetic outcomes have become key elements that are critical to defining success in implant restorations. Long-term studies have demonstrated that single or multiple implants are highly predictable with high survival rates. However, in the anterior zone, the aesthetic success of implant therapy is as important as the survival rates. Several factors contribute to this “success” including patient’s healing capabilities, the level and condition of the existing soft and hard tissue, and provisional and final restorations. This special issue of the International Journal of Dentistry is aimed at contributing to the growing body of existing literature examining the aesthetic aspects and their increasingly important role in implant dentistry. We invite investigators to contribute original research and review articles exploring all aspects of surgical implant placement and restoration of maxillary anterior area. We are particularly encouraging innovative research that can further our scientific understanding of the healing of soft and hard tissue, including clinical and translational studies, in the aesthetic area of the anterior maxilla. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Evaluation criteria for aesthetic parameters
  • Peri-implant soft tissue management and augmentation techniques
  • Various ridge augmentation techniques in anterior aesthetic area
  • Surgical and restorative considerations of immediate implant placement and immediate provisionalization
  • Comparison of different treatment options in anterior maxilla
  • Clinical significance of extraction socket preservation techniques
  • Various provisionalization techniques after implant placement
  • Methods to correct aesthetic problems of implant supported restorations in the anterior maxilla
