Book Chapter
Chapter 14 of the book "Peterson's Principles of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery" is presented. It focuses on implant prosthodontics. It cites that considerations for the replacement of tooth with osseointegrated dental implants include the biologic principles of soft and hard tissues of adjacent teeth to the implant position. It notes that an adequate volume of keratinized and fixed tissue is required to properly maintain hygiene around an implant, just as it is needed around a natural tooth. It discusses several types of osseointegrated implants.

    A growing number of clinical studies show that early (2 months) and immediate loading protocols may be predictable. However, they are based on clinical stability only. The aim of this case report was to document the osseointegration status of two Osseotite implants after 2 months of healing in...
