Redefining Esthetics: The Implant WaySource of Funding None.
Alteration in conventional techniques in anterior maxilla is essential for making a restoration look more natural and harmonious with the rest of the mouth, as this area is more prone to aesthetic failure. The visibility of anterior crowns is obviously more, making it necessary for a restoration to blend with the natural dentition. This makes a person’s smile more pleasant and aesthetic. Proper risk assessment must be considered while placing implants in anterior maxillary region as any deficiency in bone and soft tissue could compromise the aesthetics as well as overall success of a dental implant restoration. Timing of implant placement also plays a crucial role in providing aesthetic success in this region. This article presents a case where implant placement is done, enhancing the aesthetics as well as function in the anterior maxillary region.
