A Multistage Procedure to Replace a Maxillary Central Incisor by an Implant-Supported Single Tooth Restoration: A Case Report
Durstberger, Gerlinde / Jiru, Elisabeth / Ulm, Christian
The use of dental implants to replace lost anterior teeth has become a well established treatment option. Tooth loss due to endodontic or periodontic reasons often result in an inadequate alveolar bone volume and soft tissue situation for later implant placement. To achieve a functionally and aesthetically satisfying result in most cases hard and soft tissue augmentation is necessary. Mandibular block onlay grafts and connective tissue grafts are predictable methods to restore the alveolar ridge prior to implant placement and the gingiva around the implant prior to the final prosthetic restoration. An adequate provisional restoration additionally contributes to the success. This clinical report shows the successful replacement of a maxillary central incisor by an implant-supported single tooth restoration in a multistage procedure.
