Immediate implant placement in mandible and prosthetic rehabilitation by means of all-zirconium oxide restorations: Case report of a woman with a history of periodontitis
Walker, Petra / Enkling, Norbert / Mericske-Stern, Regina / Kolgeci, Remzi / Bassetti, Renzo
Owing to its single surgical intervention, immediate implant placement has the advantage of shortening treatment time, and thus positively affects patient morbidity. According to the bone resorption pattern after tooth extraction, bone loss should be anticipated if immediate implant placement is considered. The present case report aims to present a possible treatment option and to demonstrate that a partially edentulous arch may be rehabilitated esthetically by immediate implant placement and by corresponding anticipatory measures.
