Late implant placement
Late implant placement is a proven and reliable treatment option. Implant placement at a later time-point (6-8 months post extraction) improves wound healing, facilitates soft tissue management, and simplifies surgery. Ridge preservation procedures conducted immediately following tooth extraction minimize bone resorption and therefore preserve ridge volume until implant placement.
Clinical case: Ridge preservation with biomaterials for late implant placement.
