There are not many long-term studies that address potential complications of single implants 5+ years post follow up, especially as it relates to the comparison of immediately implant treatment vs the standard protocol. A recent study 1, though, documented 8- to 10-year clinical outcomes of immediately restored single implants in extraction sockets, comparing cases that involved immediate implant treatment [IIT] and healed bone (conventional implant treatment [CIT]).
Immediately restored single implants in extraction sockets and healed ridges demonstrate good long-term outcomes in terms of implant survival, crestal bone loss, and peri-implant health. However, biologic and especially technical complications are common.1 Read More
