This book shows readers how to overcome the perceived challenges of the flapless technique in order to take advantage of its extraordinary benefits, including the preservation of vascularization, soft tissue architecture, and hard tissue volume at the site; decreased surgical time; improved patient comfort; and accelerated healing. Case presentations address a variety of clinical situations and demonstrate the efficacy of flapless surgery. The evidence-based protocols outline the techniques to maximize the definitive outcome, even in the management of challenging cases. The final chapter focuses on flapless implant surgery for specific implant systems. This practical book is a fund of knowledge and an invaluable guide for all those who are interested in flapless implant surgery.
