Surgical Assessment of the Implant Site

Wagner Rodrigues Duarte

When patients initially present with a request for dental implant treatment, they do so with teeth that require extraction, or with teeth that have been missing for some time.

Although there are similar factors that need to be assessed in these two situations, an additional factor to consider when teeth are present is the ideal time to place the implant after extraction.

These considerations are dealt with in a separate module on timing of implant placement after tooth extraction.

The focus of this module is surgical assessment of the edentulous site after the teeth have been extracted and the ridge has healed.

After completing this ITI Academy Module, you should be able to…

  • describe the factors required to assess the soft tissues at the implant site
  • describe the factors required to assess the bone at the implant site
  • describe the relationship between the planned prosthesis and the implant site
  • determine the need for bone augmentation at the implant site
