Lecture: Strategies for Success with Immediate Implants in the Aesthetic Zone

There are several surgical strategies to maintain or recreate a balanced soft tissue architecture in relation to implant supported restorations.  The literature and clinical experience provides us numerous controversial arguments for immediate or delayed implants. The fact is that both techniques require hard and soft tissue management to achieve acceptable aesthetic results. 

Immediate implant and provisionalisation give the opportunity to preserve an adequate “pink volume”. One of the disadvantages of this technique is the challenge of dealing with many parameters at the same time. The second is related to an uncontrolled bone and soft tissue resorption after treatment.

The delayed approach gives the opportunity to control each step but also more occasions to fail. To correct bone resorption, ridge preservation technic, guided bone regeneration can create horizontal and/or vertical bone volume to maintain soft tissue. 

Those reconstructions are supposed to be stable but is it the reality?  

We have other treatment options to achieve a more natural soft tissue architecture, by using natural roots, with orthodontics, submerged roots, and socket shield technique.

A correct understanding of the indications and classification for esthetic implant placement will dramatically aid the clinician in determining an appropriate treatment plan and time frame for individual tooth extractions and implant placement in single implant cases as well as complex multiple implant cases.

Establishing a perfect treatment plan allow the restorative team to reach high aesthetic levels with sustained reliability.
