Early Implant Protocol for improved esthetics, reduced post op pain, and shorter time from extraction to restoration.
Early Implant Protocol (4 Weeks)
The tooth was extracted and grafted with Socket Graft in addition to the placement of a d-PTFE membrane using Oral Bond to secure the membrane without suturing.
2 weeks after restoration The gingival margin is in excellent location and the interdental papilla are in the process of regenerating.
The 4-week early implant protocol allows for improved bone integration over immediate implant placement in the area of the crest. This time period of implant placement also allows for no flap implant placement which reduces the time of surgery and post-operative discomfort to the patient because there are no incisions, flaps, or sutures. The accelerated time frame prevents gingival and bone resorption, providing improved gingival esthetics. The added benefit is the patient moves from extraction to restoration in an accelerated time period.
