Immediate implantation with provisionalization: from literature to clinical implications.


Numerous studies have confirmed the predictability of dental implants used for the replacement of a single missing tooth. Successful application of this surgical protocol is still technique sensitive and should be executed only by experienced restorative teams. Factors such as implant stability, implant design, immediate loading, provisionalization, and various others have a direct influence on the result of this procedure. This article reviews current literature on immediate implant placement and provides clinical guidelines aimed at improving the use of this technique in daily restorative practice.
