Immediate or early implant placement?
José Nart
Aesthetic implant supported restorations are one of the most difficult procedures to execute. Bone resorption following anterior tooth extraction often compromises gingival tissue contours. The aesthetic reconstruction of teeth, bone and gingival tissues remains the primary objective and in some instances, it can be very difficult to achieve. Combining Interdisciplinary treatment with a periodontology microsurgical approach and prosthetic dentistry surely helps to solve these challenging problems.

The objectives of this lecture will be:
  • Understanding a clear protocol for immediate implant placement and aesthetic rehabilitation.
  • Discussing the limits of the surgical treatment and its communication with the prosthodontist.
  • Assessing how immediate implant placement might be superior in terms of aesthetic results compared to delayed implant placement.
