From Extraction to Implant: A Comprehensive Approach to Dental Implant Placement


This video is discussing the process of placing dental implants, including the different types of implant placement (Type 1, Type 2, and Type 3). In Type 1, the process is easier and requires fewer visits to the dental office, while Type 2 and Type 3 involve additional procedures such as bone grafting.

Prof. Salamanca also mentions that it is important to properly assess and treat the extraction site before placing an implant in order to ensure stability and success in the long term. The video also mentions the use of soft tissue and bone grafts to enhance the stability of the implant, and the importance of proper timing and assessment of the resolution of peripheral conditions before proceeding with implant placement.
