There is much controversy surrounding the immediate placement of implants into fresh extraction sockets. This lecture will examine some of the evidence base, look into case selection, explain the techniques that can be used and describe a protocol for the management of these cases, including the fabrication of provisional crowns. The importance of implant design, implant position and the presence or absence of bone will be discussed. The question of how far can the envelope be pushed in relation to case selection will be addressed.
