Immediate Implant after Extraction

This video provides some excellent drilling tips, in cases where a decision has been made to do an immediate implant after an extraction. In this case, the patient presented with a fractured tooth, that had previously been treated with a post, core, and crown. After determining that there tooth could not be saved, a decision was made to do an extraction and implant. As described in the video, when the choice has been made to do an immediate implant, the drilling procedure becomes very important. Generally, without an immediate implant, the drilling would be palatally, but if you want to place the implant immediately following extraction it is very advantageous to have the drilling direction done mesio-palatal as explained.
