Single-tooth replacement in the aesthetic zone with immediate provisionalization: fourteen consecutive case reports.


The concept of osseointegration has been the subject of numerous investigations since it was originally introduced by Brånemark. Researchers have attempted to further define and modify the surgical protocol for implant therapy, and have altered the length of healing, implant design, and the time of fixture placement in attempts to improve the efficacy and predictability of this restorative modality. This article demonstrates the use of an immediate placement procedure for restoring single teeth in the aesthetic zone, focusing on the maintenance of the hard and soft tissues in the region.
