Successful implant treatment depends on the ability to act like natural teeth and be in harmony with the tissue and the bone. Basic precautions can be important for that and advanced level techniques must be performed by the clinician, and the implant must include the technology to imitate natural structure.
What are the basic precautions?
a- The clinician must have some surgical knowledge and experience as positioning the implant, and needs to avoid trauma.
b- If possible implant must be implanted right after the extraction of the tooth. Scientifically proved that bone in the extraction area melts 30% to 60% in the next 6 months. This causes the bone melting and gum retraction in the implant area.
c- Extraction of the tooth must be non-traumatic, and special techniques must be used for that.
d- If implanting after the extraction is not possible, the cavity must be filled with special material and technique for protection against bone melting.
