The functional consequences of tooth loss require clinicians to fabricate restorations that take into consideration individual anatomic situations as well as the psychologic aspects of the patients.
This comprehensive text details the role of osseo-integration in prosthodontic restoration via careful treatment planning and the use of a multidisciplinary therapeutic approach.
