Immediate placements of implants into extraction sockets is an exciting treatment alternative for our patients. However, there are many potential short and particularly long-term risks which the practitioner must be fully aware of. This presentation will focus on the potential problems and benefits both clinically and biologically when the choice of immediate socket placement is made for single and multiple sites.
The treatment planning of complex cases requires the highest level of knowledge and skill of the treating team. It is an orchestration of procedures including proper sequencing and timing that makes the difference. An envisionment of the final case before starting is required to know where the goal of treatment will be directed. This, in conjunction with the patient’s needs and clinical situation comprise the decision-making process for what is the best treatment for the patient.
Drs. Angelopoulos and Manolakis in an engaging presentation will discuss all factors that may be of importance in the various steps of comprehensive treatment from the diagnostic investigation to the digitization and virtualization of the complex case, the analysis of possible digital treatment options, and last, the application of the most appropriate treatment.
