The marked rise in patients’ demands as regards quality of life and a good appearance makes it mandatory for the Prosthodontist to provide a dental prosthesis with optimal functional, esthetic and physiological requirements. Recent researches in dental implants advocate precise preparation of the implant bed and an adequate primary stability for more vital bone to be in contact with the implant interface facilitating immediate loading. Improvements in implant designs and surface modifications have favored reduced treatment time.
