David Gelb: A clinically documented protocol for immediate implant placement and loading
- Immediate implant placement and restoration in various clinical indications
- Discussion and confounding of dogmas and prejudices against immediate implant placement and restorations
- Implant placement is a prosthetic event
- Review of key elements of immediate implant placement
Based on over 20 years of clinical experience with immediate implant placement and restoration, Dr Gelb reviews treatment options and benefits for this protocol in various clinical indications, and gives a glimpse of these procedures from his daily clinical practice. Immediate implant placement and restoration support preservation of the site dimensions, accelerate treatment time and minimize the number of surgical and prosthetic interventions. Immediate restoration seals the extraction socket to retain the clot for regeneration and tissue repair, and provides a platform for esthetic tooth replacement, emergence design and soft tissue management. Dr Gelb concludes that immediate implant placement and restoration is a fine protocol, that has revolutionized implant dentistry, is biologically sound, evidence based and patient preferred.
