The placement of implants in the mandible (lower jaw) is long established in clinical practice and is well supported by evidence in terms of stability. Maxillary (upper jaw) implants tend to present a greater challenge to clinicians and this region is therefore the focus of this book. Bone quality and quantity in the maxilla is more likely to be deficient and this book focuses on maxillary rehabilitation (by means of bone grafting) to provide a basis for implants. The book discusses different techniques for the rehabilitation of severe bone deficiencies and is highly illustrated with clinical cases to demonstrate practical surgical procedures.
