Immediate Graft

Designed to Fill Defects and Achieve Implant Integration

Achieving Implant Integration

Immediate Graft was developed to not just fill the defect with bone but to also produce integration in the area of the defect. Immediate Graft is proven to produce integration to immediate implants. Immediate Graft is also used in areas of periodontal defects and apicoectomies.

Immediate implant placement has many advantages to our patients that provides the clinician and the patient with the best esthetic results. Historically, the defects around the coronal portion of immediate implants were grafted with various materials such as cadaver bone, autografts, and animal grafts. However, studies have shown that while these grafts would result in bone filling the defect they did not result with the bone integrating to the implant. This lack of integration to the implant surface at the most critical portion of the implant has resulted in recession, peri-implantitis, and at times, loss of the implant.

Immediate implants are a terrific service to the patient. However, achieving ideal esthetics and 100% bone integration to the surface of the implant has been challenging. Immediate implant placement with temporization can produce ideal esthetics but the production of an esthetic temporary is time-consuming and the incidence of failure to integrate is much higher.

Follow the link to see a case that illustrates excellent esthetic results when an immediate implant is placed without temporization.
