Esthetic outcomes and tissue stability of implant placement in compromised sockets following immediate dentoalveolar restoration: results of a prospective case series at 58 months follow-up.


The aim of this prospective case series was to evaluate the stability of esthetic treatment after single tooth replacement in compromised sockets using the immediate dentoalveolar restoration (IDR) concept. Eighteen patients underwent immediate implant placement and IDR of bone defects. Clinical photographs were used to evaluate the gingival contour and papillae. The mean soft tissue dimensions at baseline and final follow-up were 12.85 ± 2.33 mm and 12.79 ± 2.48 mm, respectively, revealing no recession. The mean mesial and distal papillary heights increased slightly over time. Stable periimplant soft tissues and satisfactory esthetic outcomes were achieved.
