The Foundations of Success in Immediate Implant Placement

Challenges of Immediate Implants Without Preventive Regeneration

Implants alone cannot maintain the ridge volume. Studies show that after one year, 22% of the ridge width and 1.7 mm of the ridge height are lost5

Two-thirds of resorption take place within the first 3 months2

Poor maintenance of healthy peri-implant tissues leads to poor esthetic outcomes3,14

There is a 10x greater need for hard tissue augmentation at implant placement without previous ridge augmentation4

What can I do to minimize bone volume resorption around my patient’s immediate implant?

Fill The Gap

Seamless Solutions:

For the best clinical outcomes the choice is clear: Fill The Gap.

Geistlich products make this Simple and Effective.

  • Filling the peri-implant gap with Geistlich Bio-Oss® Collagen and Geistlich Bio-Gide® preserved 92% of the original ridge width.5
  • Filling the peri-implant gap with Geistlich Bio-Oss® Collagen resulted in better soft and bone tissue outcomes than immediate implants alone.⁶
  • Geistlich biomaterials can largely compensate for bone loss and preserve the contour of the alveolar ridge.1,7,8
  • Reduced number of surgeries per patient.5,10-13
  • Preserves soft tissue volume, leading to an improved treatment outcome.⁹
