Abstract

A technique has been presented for placement of an implant prosthesis without a visually detectable space between the prosthesis and soft tissue or visibility of the metal abutments. The prosthesis permits better phonetics and greatly improved esthetics including better lip support. Proper presurgical planning and careful assessment of the potential level of home care are especially important when this technique is used.
