Determination of the Sequence of Therapy

  • Michael S. BlockEmail author


Patients often present with the need for replacement and reconstruction of teeth in the anterior maxilla. This chapter describes a sequence of preoperative, intraoperative, and postoperative methods to treat many of these patients in an organized and evidence-based set of methods.
