Abstract

Implant placement immediately after extraction followed by an immediate provisional restoration can be a very rewarding way to provide implant therapy to patients. It provides significant benefit both to the patient and the dentist compared with traditional delayed protocol of waiting for 4–6 months. The procedure also reduces the number of surgeries which may be beneficial both to the dentist and the patient. Factors critical to success include good initial implant primary stability in good quality bone. Immediate implant placement and loading is technically challenging and should only be undertaken by clinicians with considerable experience with implant dentistry, both surgically and prosthetically. Two well-illustrated cases related to the crestal bone loss and the biologic width are also highlighted in the chapter.
