Anatomy with Relevance to Implant Surgery

Vivianne Chappuis

The understanding of the facial anatomy with its associated osseous and neurovascular structures is essential to the implant surgeon. During treatment planning and implant surgery, certain critical landmarks and boundaries must be respected. The anatomy of the maxilla and mandible is complex, and the implant surgeon should also keep in mind that many variations exist between individuals. The aim of this module is to review the basic anatomy of the facial region and to provide an overview of the important structures involved in implant dentistry in the average adult patient.
