Critical Considerations for Immediate Implant Dentistry
In attempting to avoid the healing delay of an extraction socket prior to placing a dental implant when indicated, many clinicians either perform or request immediate implant placement, which consists of surgically placing an implant into an extraction socket.
This course will inform the clinician about immediate implant dentistry and review both the potential benefits and drawbacks of the procedure.
Participants who complete this course should be able to:
- Appreciate classifications given to timing of surgical implant placement (i.e. immediate, delayed immediate, late, etc.)
- Recognize when an anterior tooth slated for extraction is a good candidate for an immediate implant
- Understand post-extraction alveolar ridge resorption and how socket preservation and immediate implant placement affect this phenomenon
- Recognize when a posterior tooth slated for extraction is a good candidate for an immediate implant
- Understand the significance of an infected socket as it relates to immediate implant dentistry
- Distinguish between primary stability and osseointegration and recognize how the morphologic features of an extraction socket may impact implant success
