Post extraction sockets: Treatment strategies in Implantology

After the extraction of a failed tooth a dental implant can be placed according to the timing of the extraction either immediate or with a delayed approach, in 6-8 weeks (early implant placement) or several months later (late implant placement).
These clinical procedures are nowadays combined with the placement of different biomaterials, with alternatives techniques. Thus bone substitutes, call barriers and growth factors are used extensively in implantologogy today.
Finally, new techniques have been developed and proposed for post extraction sockets such as the Root Membrane Technique named also Socket Shield Technique and the Immediate Dentoalveolar Restoration (IDR) technique
In this webinar all these techniques will be reviewed through clinical cases for anterior and posterior teeth aiming for an acceptable aesthetic and long-lasting outcome. Treatment strategies will be proposed finally by the speaker to minimize the morbidity for the patient and the treatment time of the overall restorative procedure.
