Immediate implant placement in fresh extraction sockets

Although, immediate placement of implants in fresh extraction sockets is considered to be controversial, there is accumulating evidence to show that this could be an optimum solution for patients faced with tooth loss. The advantages include shorter treatment, one less surgical stage, preservation of hard and soft tissue, and optimum aesthetics. This presentation will consider the evidence for and against immediate implant placement and present the results of a 5 year multi-centre trial of immediate implant placement in fresh extraction sockets.
