Aim: Anterior single tooth replacement with immediate implants has become a predictable and well-established treatment modality in the modern implant practice. The restoration protocol of these cases is also a challenging subject for clinicians because of esthetic demands of patients. The purpose of this case series was to document a clinical treatment protocol for immediately restored immediate implants (IRII) and report success rates and the esthetic scores of these cases.
Materials and Methods: These case series were based on the information from 5 immediately restored immediate implant cases that had been treated in a private practice between 2008 and 2013.
Results: There were 5 patients included in these case series mean age 31, 8 ± 11, 39. All of the implants were placed at maxillary lateral or central incisor position. Implant’s lengths were minimum 13 mm and diameters were minimum 4 mm. No implants were lost and no signs of infection were occurred. The mean follow-up time was 40, 8 ± 13, 68 months and the mean total PES, WES values were 17 ± 1, 87.
Conclusion: It can be concluded that, IRII protocol may be a successful treatment modality in the implant literature.
