Mauricio Araujo presents: Improved Guidelines for Ridge Preservation Combined with Implant

Improved anatomical guidelines for successful ridge preservation combined with immediate implant placement

Moderator Dr Robert Levine

The management of the ridge alterations that take place following tooth extraction is of great interest for Implant Dentistry. The current presentation will describe a series of studies that used ridge preservation combined with immediate implant placement for achieving good esthetic outcome. It will be demonstrated that the anatomy of the alveolar process markedly influences the amount of post-extraction bone loss and clinical success. The surgical technique for ridge preservation, a clinical procedure that aims at preserving the ridge volume within the envelope existing at the time of extraction, and immediate implant placement will be described. 

Prof. Dr Araújo is a Periodontist working both in private practice in Rio de Janeiro and at The State University of Maringa, Parana, Brazil. He completed his PhD at The University of Gothenburg, Sweden in 1998. He is the Chairman of the Perio/Implant Research Unit, State University of Maringá. He has together with his co-workers published groundbreaking research in the fields of ridge alterations following tooth extraction, ridge preservation, bone formation in extraction sockets and immediate implant placement. He is Osteology Foundation Honorary Board member, ITI Fellow, a former ITI Chairman in Brazil and ITI Research committee member.
