Planning for the optimal implant position in the aesthetic zone requires a thorough communication between the surgeon and the restorative dentist. The implant position is influenced by not only the anatomical morphology but also by the various prosthetic designs of the restoration. The mesial-distal, buccal-lingual, apical-coronal position, and angulation of the implants are all critical factors that will impact the emergence profile and material thickness of the prosthesis. This chapter will outline an interdisciplinary treatment approach to achieve the optimal implant position for the ultimate aesthetic and biologic outcome.
