Immediate Implants Placed Into Infected Sites: A Clinical Report

Arthur B. Novaes, Jr, DSc/Arthur B. Novaes, DSc

PMID: 7591007

Placement of immediate implants is a routine clinical procedure. However, certain clinical conditions, especially the presence of infected sites, are considered to be contraindications for the immediate implant. Based on clinical experience, it is proposed that if certain preoperative and postoperative steps are carefully followed and meticulous debridement of the alveolus is done during the surgical procedure, immediate implants can be successfully placed into chronically infected sites. The advantages of this procedure are discussed. (INT J ORAL MAXILLOFAC IMPLANTS 1995;10:609613)
