Confidence in extraction socket management and immediate implant placement with Straumann Biomaterials
Following tooth extraction, a series of physiological changes affecting the surrounding alveolar bone take place. This process includes bone formation as well as volumetric resorption. The latter can compromise the implant placement in a prosthetically driven position or the clinical outcome, leading to a scarse patient satisfaction.
It is very important to apply efficient solutions that give our patients confidence and an excellent experience. Less complications mean better patient satisfaction; and this eventually provides a quicker turnover in our practice.
Our goal as clinicians is to limit the bone resorption after tooth extraction and thus maximize our treatment predictability.
- Understand the different treatment approaches following tooth extraction.
- Describe the importance of soft and hard tissue management for an overall successful treatment outcome.
- Discuss the rationale for using certain biomaterials in different clinical scenarios.
