Every year more dental implants are placed and restored worldwide. Current implant principles dictate implant placement for optimal form, function, and esthetics and not simply where the available bone is. With this in mind, proper management of an extraction socket is essential. After an extraction, up to 50% of a socket can be lost within the first year. The majority of this occurs in the first three months. The loss usually occurs at the expense of the thinner buccal plate creating a compromised site. Proper socket management, at the time of extraction results, in a less complex staged implant placement. Without proper socket management ideal implant placement may require multiple, complex, expensive surgeries with less predictable results. We will explore the current advances in grafting techniques utilizing allograft bone materials. We will provide hands-on training to preserve post-extraction sockets and reconstruct bone in sites with buccal plate defects. We will also discuss when it is appropriate to place an implant at the time of extraction and the current practical protocols. Biologic and clinical considerations of will be discussed to simplify implant therapy both at the surgical and prosthetic level.

The hands-on training and techniques and procedures practiced can be used in your practice immediately.
