Role of Implants in Dentistry

This Pathway outlines the role of implants in dentistry and emphasises the importance of a prosthodontically driven approach to assessment and planning. The Pathway discusses strategic considerations for tooth maintenance versus replacement with implants and as well as implant survival and success. The Pathway also compares published outcomes of fixed conventional prosthodontic treatment options with fixed implant-supported options.
