Aesthetic implants in the young patient

Young patients often present requesting implants as a result of trauma and hypodontia.

The management of young patients after trauma, from initial palliative care through grafting, implant placement, temporization and final restoration brings together a host of diagnostic, hard tissue surgical, soft tissue surgical and aesthetic skills.

Missing upper lateral incisors can represent the most challenging cases. A close liaison with the orthodontist, thin tissue biotypes and the timing of implant placements are some of the issues to be faced when placing implants in patients with hypodontia.

A series of case studies will highlight some of these issues.
