Joseph Y.K. Kan, DDS, MS/Kitichai Rungcharassaeng, DDS, MS

DOI: 10.11607/prd.1346

This article describes the maintenance of the interimplant papilla when replacing a failing tooth adjacent to an implant restoration using the proximal socket shield procedure in conjunction with immediate implant placement and provisionalization.
