Immediate Placement and All-Ceramic Restoration in the Anterior Maxilla: A Customized Interdisciplinary Treatment Approach
Providing a pleasing implant-supported restoration with a natural-looking soft-tissue situation in the aesthetically sensitive anterior region continues to be a considerable challenge. The immediate-placement treatment plan emphasizes the transformation of a periodontal interface into the peri-implant/restorative interface. A minimally invasive procedure without flap elevation is intended to prevent the collapse of the biologic structures. The success of immediately placed implants is greatly promoted by implants with a diameter smaller than that of the socket, placed toward the oral aspect while keeping a distance from the buccal lamellae as well as augmentation/regeneration of the buccal bone. Connective-tissue grafts are recommended in addition to bone augmentation to compensate for anticipated or manifest volume deficiencies. Here, a connective-tissue transplant is inserted into a supraperiosteal pocket and secured by microsurgical means.
