Treatment guidelines

Submerged vs non-submerged

Key points

  • Minimal inflammation and movement of implants are critical to osseointegration.
  • A non-submerged implant placement may imply early loading, shorter treatment period, and less patient morbidity with one surgical procedure only.
  • Poor primary implant stability implies a submerged implant placement.
