Confidence in extraction socket management and immediate implant placement with Straumann Biomaterials
In this webinar, Dr. Susy Linder and Prof. Michel Dard will present the clinical decision-making process following tooth extraction, including different clinical cases. The factors considered in these workflows are related to timing, surgical and prosthetic procedures, biomaterials, costs effectiveness and patients reported outcomes.Following tooth extraction, a series of physiological changes affecting the surrounding alveolar bone take place. This process includes bone formation as well as volumetric resorption. The latter can compromise the implant placement in a prosthetically driven position or the clinical outcome, leading to a scarse patient satisfaction. It is very important to apply efficient solutions that give our patients confidence and an excellent experience. Less complications mean better patient satisfaction; and this eventually provides a quicker turnover in our practice. Our goal as clinicians is to limit the bone resorption after tooth extraction and thus maximize our treatment predictability. Learning objectives
- Understand the different treatment approaches following tooth extraction.
- Describe the importance of soft and hard tissue management for an overall successful treatment outcome.
- Discuss the rationale for using certain biomaterials in different clinical scenarios.
