The loss of a tooth or teeth is often a traumatic experience for the patient. We have shown over many years that dental implants offer a long-term solution for replacement of missing teeth with excellent long term results.

I have been involved in the concept of immediate implant placement after extraction of tooth with immediate loading loading for 10 years. This talk will give you an overview of where we have come in the past 10 years and what works predictably with current thinking.

Learning objectives:

  • Identify when immediate placement and loading is a feasible treatment option
  • Have a greater understanding of what is required to carry out the procedure out predictably


Abid graduated from the Glasgow Dental School before undertaking his diploma of membership of the Faculty of Dental Surgery in Edinburgh and a Masters Degree at Glasgow University. He has had extensive training both in the UK and overseas in the field of Implantology.

He limits his treatments to implants and the management of complex cases.
