Title: Esthetic criteria in singular implant overdentures

Using dental implants becomes a procedure that continues to increase worldwide. Furthermore, single tooth replacement has evolved into a predictable procedure. That gives the singular implant overdenture the advantage to become the preferred method of tooth replacement.

This study was motivated by the higher number of patients that requires more and more esthetic, in the same time with predictable results. The aim of this study was to document the esthetic aspects of singular implant overdenture throughout the treatment and also after its finished.

High esthetic requirements that patients put on the table can be really difficult to manage and imply the knowledge of esthetic risks even before starting the treatment. In the field of implant-prosthetic rehabilitation, collaboration between practitioners is essential and also is one of the necessary conditions for success.
