Timing of Implant Placement
Once a tooth has been removed, dynamic physiological and dimensional changes take place during the healing phase that may influence the choice of the best time to place an implant. There are several time points following tooth extraction that may be considered for the placement of dental implants. Each time point has advantages and disadvantages.
This Learning Pathway defines the different time points and explains advantages and disadvantages of each. The Pathway outlines the factors that are important in determining the timing of implant placement and offers clinical examples to demonstrate application in practice. The Pathway also discusses the timing of placement in combination with guided bone regeneration (GBR).
