Implant placement after extraction in posterior areas in upper maxilla have certain limitations such as the sinus floor which require anatomical knowledge and safe protocols to manage properly and avoid complications.
Immediate extraction and implant placement is becoming a necessary procedure which, appropriately performed, will provide you and your patients with many benefits mentioned below:
1-. In addition to minimally invasive techniques such as flapless almost non post-op effect should be expected.
2-. The time is reduced for you and your patient since we are performing 2 surgeries in one visit.
3-. We avoid B-L collapse derived from bone atrophy.
4-. Complications are reduced since we are reducing the surgical times.
When performing this technique with anatomical limitations such as sinus floor, CBCT and proper drilling depth should be assessed.
The use of osteotome technique (Summers) is limited to 3mm to avoid complications.
The use of Growth Factor Therapy will help us to become more predictable and manage complications especially derived from non cooperative patients.
