Immediate Provisional Restoration of Post-extraction Socket Implants
Stephen Chu, DMD, MSD, CDT
This presentation will focus on the immediate temporization of extraction socket implants with either custom healing abutments or full provisional crowns. Temporary restorations will be made both free hand or with preformed gingival former devices to capture the shape of the peri-implant tissues. A step-by-step technique will be shown in the fabrication of these restorations as well as the importance of doing so in preservation of tissues post-extraction.
Upon completion of this presentation, participants should be able to: 1) discuss the importance of immediate temporization; 3) describe how to make a custom healing abutment; and 3) explain how to make a full provisional restoration.
