[Surgery]  Immediate implant on 14

On my way to CHicago Midwinter meeting.  Last case was fun for me....Microscope Assisted Immediate extraction and implant placement for tooth 14.  Low Level Laser at end....Implant was a 4.5 by 13mm HiOssen...maybe could have gotten away with 4.0 by 13 mm but the PIezo helped me get the tooth out nicely, laser disinfection and immediate with cortical stabilization of the palate.  Grafted the jump gap but it was small.....On my way to the airport...hope its of interest to you.

HI Robert... Skycad made the guide. Never used bone expanders but I still needed to grab apical bone. Off to the is cold there, very cold...hopefully no snow! Cya Glenn

Hi Glenn. Nice. Did you make your own guide? Since you were in maxillary bicuspid area, why not just use bone expanders to compress that porous cancellous bone instead of an osteotomy? Have fun in Chicago..brrrrr
