HANSAmed Extraction Socket Management

Advanced Approach

Early implant placement

Early implant placement may offer advantages for preservation of the soft and hard tissues1. When this treatment option is combined with an augmentation procedure using a pairing of Geistlich Bio-Oss® or Geistlich Bio-Oss Collagen® with Geistlich Bio-Gide®, predictable results can be achieved. Sealing the socket with Geistlich Mucograft® Seal can further improve soft-tissue parameters in extraction sockets with preserved buccal walls.2

Clinical case: Early implant placement with simultaneous autogenous bone augmentation procedure in combination with Geistlich Bio-Oss® and Geistlich Bio-Gide® 

Case by Prof. Daniel Buser, Berne, Switzerland

After tooth extraction without flap elevation, the socket is carefully debrided to remove any inflammatory tissue. The soft tissues are allowed to heal for 4-8 weeks depending on the tooth diameter.
Following soft-tissue healing, implant surgery is performed. Special attention is paid to a correct prosthetic position of the implant in all three dimensions with good primary stability.
The typical crater-like defect on the facial aspect of the implant is augmented with locally harvested autogenous bone chips covered by a superficial layer of Geistlich Bio-Oss®.
The augmentation area is then covered with a Geistlich Bio-Gide® membrane to provide a temporary barrier function.
Following the flap release by means of a mucoperiosteal incision, a tension-free primary wound closure is achieved. Provisional implant prosthesis is performed after 8 weeks.
The clinical and radiographic follow-up at 7.5 years shows a pleasing esthetic long-term outcome and an intact facial bone wall in the CBCT.

The use of Geistlich Bio Oss Collagen® and Geistlich Mucograft® Seal is minimally invasive and maximizes soft-tissue outcomes.2.
