Dental implantology has seen a dramatic shift in the last decade for a variety of reasons including the incorporation of 3D tools for diagnosis and treatment planning, new implant surfaces and designs, bioactive materials, tissue engineering techniques, and minimally invasive surgical procedures. The combined effect of these innovations is a new paradigm of implant dentistry that is already changing the way clinicians treat edentulous patients and improving treatment options. Despite these advances within implantology, questions remain about many new techniques and developing technologies. This book focuses on the dynamic parts of this new paradigm that are still evolving-the controversial topics that are still subject to debate and that directly affect daily clinical practice. The author asks pressing questions and provides sound assessments.
