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.
