Academy of Osseointegration Meeting – Pre-Meeting Workshop

Harold Baumgarten, DMD and Stephen Chu, DMD, MSD, CDT

Post-extraction socket immediate implant placement in the anterior maxilla remains one of implant dentistry’s most challenging procedures. Anatomic challenges often result in implants being placed and angulated in a compromised facial-biased position. This leads to cement-retained restorations or the use of angled abutments, both of which are sub-optimal for preserving mid-facial tissues.

This program will demonstrate why the use of an innovative implant design together with an appropriate screw-retained provisional and final restoration can help maximize bone and soft tissue volume. A dual or Co-Axis® Implant design allows for Subcrestal Angle Correction™ leading to properly placed implants and the 100% use of screw-retained restorations. Predictable anterior esthetic outcomes in post-extraction socket immediate implants in the anterior maxilla are achievable and should be considered by all implant specialists.

Upon completion of this presentation, participants should be able to:
1) identify patient candidates for post-extraction socket immediate placement in the anterior zone;
2) incorporate tissue management guidelines for preserving the natural gingival contours post treatment;
3) explain the predictable anterior aesthetics benefits of a unique site-specific implant combined with a screw-retained restoration;
4) execute the surgical techniques necessary to place an immediate implant placed in an anterior socket site through a hands-on exercise; and
5) demonstrate prosthetic provisional restoration techniques to capture subgingival tissue contours around anterior immediate implants through a hands-on exercise.
