Slideshow Zirconia Implant Placement in Defective Bone By Sammy Noumbissi DDS MS

Patient presented with tooth # 12 extracted a few weeks prior. She was given a removable partial denture that she never used and wanted a fixed metal free tooth replacement. After 3D diagnostics and planning and ten weeks after extraction, surgery was performed and a zirconia monoblock implant was placed engaging primarily the palatal root in the apical third. Deficient buccal area was bone grafted, an immediate temporary crown was placed and the implant allowed to integrate for four months.

    Great case Sammy. Was wondering how long after the surgery do you remove the barrier and what criteria you use on timing the removal.

      Hello Matt, I usually use resorbable membrane, so I will return to the site after 3 to 4 months depending on the graft material used.
