Case Study
Esthetic implant therapy in the anterior maxilla is dependent on multiple factors including the lip drape, the implant position and the available peri-implant soft tissue to name a few. The latter two factors become increasingly important in a patient with a high lip line where a fraction of a millimeter can spell success or disaster. This is further confounded by the fate of the extraction socket. The shift in paradigm from FPDs to implants has placed special emphasis on the management of the extraction wound and timing of implant placement. This report describes a case of immediate implantation into a fresh extraction socket of a maxillary central incisor with immediate provisional Maryland - Rochette bridge, and discusses the advantages and pitfalls of immediate implant placement.
