The purpose of this presentation is to simplify the steps leading to an optimal esthetic result and shorter treatment times. It will emphasize the protocol and surgical techniques of combined extraction, implant placement, and bone and/or soft tissue augmentation that are vital to rejuvenate highly compromised sites in one surgical visit. The statistical results of over 6,000 extractions with simultaneous implant placement will be compared with implants placed in healed sites. The long-term esthetic stability of these immediately placed implants will be detailed.
