V. John, M. Gossweiler

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Implant-supported restorations have become very popular in the management of the partially or completely edentulous patient. Success depends on attentive treatment planning and coordinated teamwork between the surgeon and the restoring dentist. Implants placed in the anterior maxilla require special attention due to esthetic considerations. This article describes the management of a severely resorbed anterior maxilla using principles of guided bone regeneration followed by implant-supported restorations. This case illustrates some of the problems that can arise during the course of treatment.
