The purpose of this study was to evaluate immediate implants with implants placed in ossified extraction (control) sites. Histologic observation of immediate and control implants showed similar levels of bone integration at the light microscopic level using ground-section and decalcified thin-section histologic methods. Both histologic methods provided similar information in relation to determination of hard and soft tissue components measured at the interface. The percentage of bone integration was similar in different anatomic regions of the oral cavity. Bone patterns peripheral to the interface region differed, suggesting that special consideration be given to implants placed in the posterior regions of the maxilla and mandible.
