Straightforward approach:
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.

Geistlich Bio-Oss Collagen® and Geistlich Bio-Gide® membrane provide the new bone formation1 needed for effective and safe implant placement.
