Post extraction dental implants are placed after the damaged tooth has been extracted. With this technique, the space left by the recently extracted tooth is used to place the implant. This reduces waiting time, medication and the number of interventions required.
There are two types of post-extraction implants:
Primary immediate implants, which are those that are inserted in the same surgical act as the exodontia, when the remaining bone is sufficient to ensure the primary stability of the implant.
Secondary immediate implants, or recently implanted implants, which are inserted 6-8 weeks after extraction, when the soft tissues have already healed, allowing correct mucogingival coverage of the alveolus.
