To shorten the time for dental implant treatment , immediate implant placement into extraction socket has been advocated by
Lang NP 2007
Immediate implants into fresh extraction have proven to be very successful. However its survival rate although high, , is slightly lower than that of conventional implant protocol.
Block MS et al 2009
Chen ST, Wilson TG et al 2004
Esposito MA et al 2006.
Case selection and surgeons’ skill is of paramount importance.
With immediate implants , the number of visits and surgical procedures are reduced.
It is however ,contraindicated for implants placement in the aesthetic zone if the patient’s bone and gum are thin. This is because the resultant gum recession will result in poor aesthetics outcome.
