Single immediate implant and immediate screwed provisional prostheses using Straumann® BLX implants
A clinical case report by Juan Blanco, Spain; Iria Darriba, Spain; Javier Pérez, Spain
Scientific evidence (pre-clinical and clinical studies) in recent decades has shown that, in ideal situations, immediate implant placement with immediate loading has survival and success rates similar to those for delayed protocols. In the case reported here we used the new Straumann® implant design: BLX, with the SRA (one abutment-one time protocol) and with immediate provisional screwed prostheses. Based on our research, this treatment protocol using a 2.5 mm abutment installed at the time of surgery, could be an ideal solution for preserving peri-implant crestal bone.
