This slideshow is an extended version of Zirconia implant placement in Compromised Bone released on 03/01/2012. More often than not and especially in emergency cases, patients are undecided about the method of tooth replacement they desire a the time of tooth removal. As a result extractions are done in a conventional manner and even with the greatest care bone defects can be created during the process of extraction. The natural process of bone resorption during healing after extraction can also make things even more complicated.
Warning: This is a surgical slideshow with graphic depictions and images of a bone grafting procedure and ceramic dental implant placement.
