Dr. Stephen Chu 

"Surgical and Restorative Management of Extraction Socket Implants in the Esthetic Zone"

Synopsis: Implant dentistry is continuously evolving offering new and more predictable forms of therapy with minimally invasive protocols. Innovative techniques now allow for better esthetics, decreased treatment times, and greater patient comfort.  However, these new techniques and therapies continue to raise questions and concerns regarding the risk and rewards of each.  Specifically, controversial issues regarding immediate extraction socket implant placement in relationship to survival and esthetic outcomes. Immediate provisional restoration of immediate implants placed into anterior sites will be presented.

This lecture will address current concepts in the treatment of Type 1, 2, and 3 sockets (intact or sockets with dentoalveolar defects), techniques, clinical research, histologic evidence, and innovations in immediate implant placement and provisional restoration and how they can enhance treatment procedures, time, and clinical outcomes for greater patient comfort, care, and satisfaction. 

In addition, esthetic risks and complications exist such as socket perforation, loss of labial plate thickness over time, and loss of the interdental papilla due to proximity issues with tooth-to-implant distance following placement. Consequently, an inventive macro design concept based upon biologic principles that combines hybrid strategies in implant diameter, shape, and thread pattern has been designed and developed to address these problems. This inverted body-shift design concept will be supported by pre-clinical [animal histology] and clinical [human] studies that scientifically supports, validates, and reinforces the biologic principles in design that ultimately enhances esthetic outcomes in modern day implantology.

After this presentation, the attendee should be able to understand the following concepts associated with immediate implant placement and provisional restoration:
