This report compares the conventional and delay methods of implantation, evaluating the bone formation around a dense apatite implant. In the conventional method, the implant is placed immediately after the cavity is prepared. In the delay technique, the implant is placed 2 weeks after preparation. This study found that many new thin trabeculae and capillaries formed around the cavity during the delay period, while none had formed at the time of implantation using the conventional method. The delay method showed earlier and wider bone formation, and less surrounding fibrous encapsulation. These results indicate that the delay technique can be an efficient method for establishing good bone binding. (Int J Oral Maxillofac Implants 1995;10:415–420)
