Immediate implant placement and immediate loading have their place with proven predictable success but there are clinical situations where a delayed approach is required. Delaying implant placement can make subsequent treatment more complex, more costly with less predictability. This presentation will review treatment planning decision making following extractions - when to place implant immediately, when to wait and when to consider socket preservation. Having understood the rationale behind the technique we will discuss; the choice in biomaterials; the impact these choices have on treatment; the evidence and treatment protocols so that these techniques can be applied to improve treatment outcomes and predictability.

Learning Objectives: · Review bone resorbtion following extractions · Immediate placement vs delayed · Augmentation options · Socket preservation techniques and biomaterial choice
