Facial Analysis for the Successful Rehabilitation of the Edentulous Maxilla with Dental Implants


Hard and soft tissue loss which occur after teeth loss leads to undesired facial aesthetic results. This clinical situation can not totally be rehabilitated by only focusing on dental implant application. Aesthetic success can be achieved by a detailed A to Z planning in the beginning of all procedure. Thorough facial analysis, evaluating the symmetry of the lips and positions of the anterior teeth are important issues that should be preconditioned in the detailed plan. In this lecture, facial analysis and releated planning and work-flow will be described for the aesthetic success of the terminal dentate or edentulous patients’ fixed rehabilitation with reduced number of dental implants.
