This lecture will focus on the biologic criteria when it comes to restoring anterior implants using as an alternative a screw or cement retained restoration. The main problematic aspect for the cemented implant restoration will be discussed widely with different clinical examples as well as the screw-retained restorations. Emphasis will be placed on the importance to limit implant abutment disconnections for bone stability and protection as well as the need of adjunctive CTG around implants in order to secure long term esthetic results.
