OBJECTIVES: Tooth loss results in an inevitable alveolar ridge reduction. This has established a cautionary approach to extract, wait, augment, and insert the implant, in lieu of immediate placement. However, saving the tooth or part of it whenever possible is more conservative and supports the vital periodontal tissue buccofacial to an implant. The purpose of this cases series was to report on implant survival using this technique in a large cohort of patients at mid-term ...

The socket-shield technique for avoiding postextraction tissue alteration was first described in 2010. The technique was developed for hopeless teeth in anterior esthetic sites but has not yet been described for molar sites. Managing postextractive ridge changes in the posterior region by prevention or regeneration remains a challenge. The socket shield aims to offset these ridge changes wherever possible, preserving the patient's residual tissues at immediate implants. This technique ...
