Straightforward approach - Late implant placement

Late implant placement is a reliable treatment option for every surgeon. The placement of implants following a 6-8 month waiting period improves wound healing, facilitates soft-tissue management and simplifies surgery. Ridge preservation procedures undertaken directly after tooth extraction minimize bone resorption during this waiting period and therefore preserve the ridge volume.

Clinical case: Ridge preservation with biomaterials for late implant placement.

Geistlich Bio-Oss® Collagen and Geistlich Bio-Gide® membrane provide the new bone formation1 needed for adequate and safe implant placement.
