Immediate Provisional Restoration of Postextraction Implants for Maxillary Single-Tooth Replacement
Ferrara, Alberto / Galli, Carlo / Mauro, Giovanni / Macaluso, Guido Maria
The timing of implant placement and loading following tooth extraction has recently undergone substantial reconsideration. The authors tested a protocol of immediate loading of single implants placed at the time of tooth extraction in a consecutive case series. Thirty-three patients received a single implant-supported crown to replace a maxillary anterior tooth at the time of extraction. Regular recalls were planned for the following 4 years. One implant did not integrate, and another became unstable secondary to facial trauma. Overall patient satisfaction and clinical and radiographic parameters were good.
