This course discusses the rationale, advantages, disadvantages, surgical techniques, success rate and complications associated with the immediate and delayed placement of dental implants following tooth extraction.
Upon completion of this course, participants should be able to do the following:
- Understand the differences between ideal and compromised extraction sites for use in implant placement.
- Understand how to optimize results when placing immediate dental implants.
- Be aware of the consequences of placing implants in compromised sites.
- Understand surgical and regenerative techniques available to optimize healing around implants placed in a compromised site.
- Know the advantages and limitations of the use of guided tissue regeneration techniques to optimize healing when placing immediate dental implants.
- Be aware of the capabilities and limitations of the use of bone grafting when used to enhance healing around immediate dental implants.
- Understand the effect of inflammation on the regeneration of bone around immediate dental implants.
- Understand the advantages and disadvantages of the use of a delayed immediate implant technique versus an immediate implant technique.
This course discusses the rationale, advantages, disadvantages, surgical techniques, success rate and complications associated with the immediate and delayed placement of dental implants following tooth extraction. The course is designed to provide the reviewer with the information needed to treatment plan the use of an immediate or delayed dental implant and to optimize the success of this form of tooth replacement. An immediate dental implant is defined as a dental implant that is placed in the root socket at the time of extraction of a tooth. An immediate-delayed dental implant is defined as an implant that is placed 6-8 weeks after tooth extraction, after initial soft tissue healing, but before complete healing of the alveolar socket.
