Replacement therapy with immediate postextraction single dental implants has gained wider acceptance in clinical practice. However, because bone tissue volume may be insufficient for primary stability and subsequent osteointegration, many dentists prefer delaying implantation 2 or 3 months later, which may lead to greater loss of vestibular bone tissue and worsen postextraction atrophy. To avert these problems, a new surgical technique has been developed that allows immediate loading on postextraction single implants and atrophic socket remodeling. Socket remodeling is known to occur when the extraction site is completely ossified, but, depending on the length of time since tooth extraction, surgical complications may still arise, resulting in suboptimal wound healing of the socket, with unacceptable esthetic and functional outcome.

Abstract

Replacement therapy with immediate postextraction single dental implants has gained wider acceptance in clinical practice. However, because bone tissue volume may be insufficient for primary stability and subsequent osteointegration, many dentists prefer delaying implantation 2 or 3 months later, which may lead to greater loss of vestibular bone tissue and worsen postextraction atrophy. To avert these problems, a new surgical technique has been developed that allows immediate loading on postextraction single implants and atrophic socket remodeling. Socket remodeling is known to occur when the extraction site is completely ossified, but, depending on the length of time since tooth extraction, surgical complications may still arise, resulting in suboptimal wound healing of the socket, with unacceptable esthetic and functional outcome.
