Straumann Scientific Highlights, Issue No. 6/2019 (September - October)

Editor’s choice: Preservation of peri-implant hard tissues following immediate postextraction implant placement. (Cardaropoli D et al. 2019).

DOWNLOAD the September - October issue of our “Scientific Highlights” newsletter with short summaries of recently published scientific evidence.

In the current issue of the newsletter, we would like to draw your attention on the article by Cardaropoli et al. published in the International Journal of Periodontics & Restorative Dentistry.

The authors evaluated the insertion of the Straumann BLT implants (Roxolid®/SLActive®) in intact fresh extraction sockets in the anterior maxilla.

Apart from 100% survival after 1 year, the authors report stable marginal bone levels followed by the horizontal width of the post-extraction crest well-preserved independently from the thickness of the buccal bone plate at baseline.
