The challenge of aesthetic implant restoration

Dr Jan Spieckermann & Jörg Wildenhain, Germany

The demands of treatment with implants are high, particularly in the aesthetically relevant areas. In the case of difficult morphological conditions, the individual wishes of patients regarding their natural appearance represent a major challenge for the treatment team.

The following case study illustrates the complexity of implant treatment for combined horizontal and vertical bone resorption after the traumatic loss of the left central incisor...

Patients often complain of slowly enlarging swellings. Radiographically, most radicular cysts appear as round or pear-shaped unilocular radiolucent lesions in the periapical region. The cyst may displace adjacent teeth or cause mild root resorption...
