Immediate Fixture Placement: A Treatment Planning Alternative
Parel, Stephen M. / Triplett, Robert G.
The rationale and possible clinical applications of an immediate fixture placement technique are described. Although this concept may be a somewhat radical departure from the conventional mandibular protocol, there are significant potential patient benefits with no apparent change in anticipated fixture survival rates. A similar approach in the maxilla may be less practical with most presenting dentitions, but there is evidence that further research may make immediate fixture placement equally appropriate in this arch.
