Implant timing

Author Prof. Dr. med. dent.; PhD Ronald E. Jung

In every clinical situation, which is scheduled for an implant placement, a decision needs to be taken in regards to the right time after tooth extraction to insert the implant. In this module you are going to learn all the important decision-making factors (anatomical, esthetical, clinical, radiographical and patient centered) to chose the correct timing for implant placement after tooth extraction.

Learning objectives

Learning objectives

After completing this module you should be able to:

  • Describe the definitions of the different implant time points after tooth extraction including their advantages and disadvantages
  • Understand the scientific evidence of the long-term survival and success rates of implants placed at different time points after tooth extraction
  • List the criteria for indications and contraindications of immediate implant placement
  • List the criteria for indications and contraindications of delayed implant placement
  • Identify the critical anatomical, esthetical, clinical and radiographical factors for the decision-making process to find the right implant time point after tooth extraction
  • Understand the dimensional changes of the alveolar ridge after immediate or delayed implant placement
  • List the indications for bone regeneration procedures simultaneously with implant placement
  • Identify the need for additional soft tissue grafting before, concomitant or after implant placement
  • Differentiate between the correct implant time point after tooth extraction dependent of whether the implant placement is taking place in the anterior, the premolar or the molar area
