Early Implant Placement

The clinician is in a unique position to be able to prescribe the time for implant placement following tooth extraction in order to maximize the advantages and to achieve successful long-term outcomes. This Learning Pathway explores early implant placement with soft tissue healing and/or partial bone healing (Type 2 and Type 3 placements according to the ITI classification of placement protocols). 

On completion of this Learning Pathway you should be able to...

  • define Type 2 and Type 3 early implant placement time points
  • list advantages and disadvantages of both time points
  • describe the advantages of minimally traumatic extraction techniques
  • employ the Esthetic Risk Assessment when creating a patient’s risk profile
  • recognize guided bone regenerations (GBR) techniques used in conjunction with Type 2 and Type 3 implant placements
