Single immediate implant restoration in the anterior zone with the Straumann® BLX® system and a complete digital workflow approach: a step-by-step case report.
A clinical case report by Sergio Piano, Italy
In challenging times like those we are living, it has become fundamental to apply efficient solutions that give our patients confidence and an excellent experience in our practice. When indicated, immediate implant placement into fresh extraction sockets can reduce the treatment time and cost, maintain the gingival tissues and increase the comfort of our patients. Furthermore, the implementation of digital workflows in our treatments can contribute with many of the advantages that immediacy also provides, while increasing the precision and quality of the results; and more importantly, reducing the risk of the spread of the so known COVID-19, as the communication with the dental lab can be done digitally, from the planning to the manufacture of the final restoration. However, it is not only important to perform a careful decision-making process in order to define our clinical approach and workflow, but also to select the proper quality and design of materials for our treatments.
