Subject: [implants] #3.6 Immediate Implant
3.6 - Patient presented with soreness, swelling and
bleeding in the area of tooth #3.6. I've assumed
an endo-perio lesion and started the endodontic
retreatment. In the first session I've managed to
negotiate 3 canals and retrieved the broken file;
placed CaOH2 and sent the patient home for 1 month.
She returned 3 months later and the mesial root was
fractured all the way to the apex. Decision was
to extract the tooth and place an implant in the
same day, along with Bio-Oss (Bio-Col technique).
After 6 more months, the funny part began:creating
the sulcus:)with custom sulcus formers.A bless! :)
But this helped me create a better emergence
profile, unlike stock sulcus formers,
and a nice crown. - Dan
