Papilla preservation between two implants: a modified socket-shield technique to maintain the scalloped anatomy? A case report
Cherel, Fabrice / Etienne, Daniel
A scalloped anatomy maintained between two adjacent crowns supported by immediate implants is presented in this clinical case. This is a modified concept of the socket-shield technique, which allows preservation of the papilla due in part to preservation of interproximal root fragments. Clinical results at 11 months after implant placement are presented.
