Immediate dentoalveolar restoration (IDR) is a treatment modality for immediate loading of single-tooth dental implants in fresh extraction sockets. This textbook provides a comprehensive step-by-step presentation of the IDR procedures and detailed clinical cases showing IDR used in various clinical situations. IDR reduces the number of interventions by integrating reconstruction of any tissue loss during the same visit as the implant placement and provisional crown fabrication. Predictability of the esthetics is ensured through careful esthetic assessment and use of advanced prosthetic techniques, including platform switching and contouring of the emergence profile. The minimally invasive techniques that are central to IDR are featured throughout. In addition, the authors cover the most important adjunctive topics, such as immediate loading, use of the maxillary tuberosity for bone grafts, and esthetic restoration.
