Authors: Allen Gabriel, G. Patrick Maxwell

Abstract

Implants vary in width, height, projection, volume, fill consistency, shell surface, and shape. Given the wide variety of implants that are available, selecting an implant that best suits a patient can be challenging. This article reviews the principles governing implant selection. Based on the authors’ clinical experience, an algorithm for implant selection is proposed.
