The Implant Dilemma of Maximizing Available Space: Socket Grafting and Use of a 3.0 mm Implant

User Ratings -

Course Description

Course Overview

Despite our desire to meet patient expectations to replace missing or soon-to-be missing teeth with dental implants, space and anatomical constraints can at times limit our ability to do so. One method of avoiding the pitfall of a deficient ridge is to preserve bone volume following a tooth extraction. For many, the questions related to such care include whether treatment protocols have changed, what the most promising techniques and materials to preserve soft and hard tissues might include, whether or not all sockets need to be grafted, and where immediate implant placement might play a role. Despite our best efforts to maintain bone volume, there are certain circumstances where this may be limited despite having performed a ridge preservation technique. For some patients, strong consideration needs to be given to using a 3.0 mm diameter implant. This presentation will focus on how to maximize opportunities for implant placement given the evolutions that are occurring in the dental implant field with regard to graft materials and implant design.

Course objectives


Discuss the current understanding of the healing of extraction sockets once a tooth is removed, i.e., vertical and horizontal ridge resorption.


List some of the systematic reviews and what they present as to the necessity for grafting for ridge preservation.


List some of the studies that evaluate how well various graft materials help facilitate new bone formation.


Discuss the advantages for having a “true” 3.0 mm implant in one’s armamentarium and where it is indicated.
