Author: Saj Jivraj

Treating edentulous patients with implant-supported restorations is a significant challenge for the treating clinician, as the patients’ expectations with respect to aesthetics, phonetics, form and function are high.
Dr. Saj Jivraj, Clinical Associate Professor at University of Southern California, USA and his 31 contributors, a group of world-renowned surgeons and restorative dentists, compiled this manual entitled “Graftless Solutions for the Edentulous Patient” to share with us the latest innovations in oral implantology.
This book is designed to meet the needs of clinicians experienced in placing and restoring dental implants. It initially presents diagnosis and treatment planning from a restorative and a surgical perspective. It then explains treatment planning and technique for guided surgery. It gives step-by-step descriptions of techniques when using the zygoma implant, immediate loading and the biomechanics of graftless solutions and comprehensive integrated digital workflow to guide surgery and prosthetics for full-arch rehabilitation. The book provides the reader with the protocol for All-on-4 and for zygoma implant to establish posterior support.
It explains the rationale for immediate loading, material considerations for full-arch implant-supported restorations and clinical steps for the fabrication of a full-arch implant-supported restoration: metal ceramics, zirconia, acrylic titanium.
It also offers information on laboratory fabrication, prosthetic and surgical complications, management of failure and maintenance.
This book is very detailed, richly illustrated, with a whole chapter describing clinical cases.
The book targets clinicians experienced in the placement and restoration of dental implants based on a number of relevant clinical cases.
