The author reflects on the concept of innovation in the field of oral and craniofacial tissue engineering. He discusses Jared Cottam's paper on the use of transsinus BMP-2 augmented implant placement followed by immediate function in a 10 Cawood Class IV-V maxillas. He explores the issues of innovation and embellishment or extrapolation. The author then cites inquiries on the future of tissue engineering.

    Esthetic complications due to nonharmonious peri-implant soft tissue profiles are common in the anterior maxilla, especially when 2 adjacent implants are found. This article suggests the use of a single implant to replace 2 lost adjacent teeth in this region and demonstrates the treatment with 2...
