Immediate postextraction implant with simultaneous buccal plate augmentation, restored with lithium disilicate abutment and veneer: A clinical report
Cardelli, Paolo / Belletti, Milko / Murmura, Giovanna
Objective: To describe the successful use of biphasic calcium sulfate for improving the buccal plate thickness in an immediate postextraction implant, and its final restoration with custom lithium disilicate abutment and veneer.
Summary: A hopeless lateral incisor was replaced with an immediate postextraction implant in conjunction with a buccal plate augmentation based on biphasic calcium sulfate. Satisfactory soft tissue height and quality were maintained following healing. The final restoration managed the severely reduced prosthetic space due to deep bite, and allowed an adhesive luting procedure.
