Dr. Michael Sonick at NYU International Biomet implant symposium with his Brazilian dental colleagues
Implant dentistry is now part of routine dental treatment. It is no longer enough for an implant to merely osseointegrate; it must be esthetic as well. The maxillary anterior dental implant is perhaps the most challenging for the clinician. A multiplicity of techniques must be mastered including but not limited to ideal implant placement, proper surgical technique, bone augmentation, soft tissue development and proper restoration.
