Hugo A. ALBERA, Estela M. Ribotta de ALBERA

Several factors determine the success of functional and esthetic outcomes with implant-supported prosthetic replacement. Team work is essential as from the time of diagnosis, along with commitment of all members involved in solving different situations daily arising in dental practice. Meticulous planning is the key to achieve the desired result, respecting an interdisciplinary practice and using clinically scientifically acceptable evidence-based protocols. Thus, this article presents a case of patient-dentist-dental hygiene technician integration in the quest for sustainable results in the long run.
