Abstract

The technique of immediate implantation has been widely used to reduce treatment time and bone loss after extraction. However, immediate implant placement in infected extraction sockets is generally contraindicated. This clinical report describes a treatment protocol for immediate implantation after the extraction of teeth with generalized chronic periodontitis. The technique used for the oral rehabilitation used computer-assisted design and computer-assisted manufacturing (CAD-CAM) titanium frameworks and cemented zirconia crowns. The titanium frameworks overcame suboptimal implant position and the cemented crowns provided excellent function and esthetics despite the locations of screw-access openings. No clinical complications occurred during a 13-month follow-up.
