"Post-extractive implantology: the alternative treatment”


Over the past 20 years, the use of dental implants has become the standard of care for the rehabilitation of patients. Esthetics, however, is an inseparable part of today’s oral treatment, and successful modern therapy can no longer be judged by whether or not the implant osseointegrates.

One of the greatest challenges facing clinicians is to obtain an ideal soft tissue integration that mimics a perfect gingival contour.

This is not always easily achievable immediately after the extraction of a compromised tooth. Consequently, dentists face the dilemma of when straightforward implant therapy is indicated or when regeneration of hard and/or soft tissues should be preferred.

The lecture will focus on what should and should not be done in a variety of different cases. Treatment objectives and options will be thoroughly discussed.


Upon completion of this presentation, participants should be able to:

1. Evaluate hard and soft tissues to achieve optimal esthetic;

2. Identify the situations where ridge preservation is indicated;

3. Recognize when and how implants can be placed immediately after tooth extraction.
