Dental implant positioning by using the root way. A predictable technique for post extractive surgery.

Minerva Stomatol. 2016 Jun 30. [Epub ahead of print]



Post extractive dental implant surgery is a technique characterized by several advantages like placing the implant during the same moment of the extraction, so reducing the time of the surgery and consequently all the prosthetic procedure; however some limitations still remain during this procedure. The disadvantages are represented by the unpredictable results of the healing of the extraction socket, its bone resorption and the dental implant inclination even using a prosthetic guide. Aim of this study is to present a predictable technique for having better aesthetic and functional results during the dental implant positioning.


This study want to presents clinical and radiological case report of dental implant placed following the line of the root before the extraction, in order to share with the clinicians a surgical experience that results to be simple and predictable.


Implant placed with this kind of tencnique showed successful osseointegration after an uneventful healing period of two years.


The described tecnique allows the clinician to achive the ideal implant positioning during immediate implant placement at multirooted extraction sites.
