Immediate implant placement -factors influencing the esthetic success
In this module Professor Joseph Kan reviews the factors that can lead to success and failure during immediate implant placement in the esthetic zone. Within three lessons the most important aspects influencing the esthetic outcome are addressed: the influence of different gingival biotypes, the impact of the facial bone contour, the gap configuration, the ideal implant size and position for immediate implant placement.
