Immediate Placement of Ultrawide-Diameter Implants in Molar Sockets: Description of a Recommended Technique
Hattingh, André C. / De Bruyn, Hugo / Ackermann, Andrew / Vandeweghe, Stefan
Immediate implant placement is performed less frequently in molar extraction sockets than in single root sockets. This is mainly due to the tripodal anatomical configuration of molar roots, which is perceived as complex and therefore unsuitable. The mechanical burden of molar sites, combined with much larger socket dimensions, make it amenable to the use of ultrawide-diameter dental implants. This article describes a practical, sequenced technique that can be used predictably for immediate implant placement in maxillary and mandibular first molar sockets, using a dry skull model for clarification. This detailed description is based on the experience of more than 580 clinical cases over a 10-year period.
