Step by step
Eight weeks post extraction. The patient had an immediate partial denture as provisional.
A mucoperiostal flap was raised, revealing a large buccal bony defect. A Neoss ProActive Straight implant was placed with simultaneous bone grafting. A tooth supported provisional restoration allowed for undisturbed healing.
Four months of healing. Buccolingual and mesio-distal ISQ readings show high stability of the implants (BL 68, MD 68), allowing to proceed with delivery of the definitive implant-supported crown.
Four months of healing. ISQ value measurement using the Neoss NeoTell unit with 45° angle and 2-4 mm distance from the SmartPeg.
Final screw-retained implantsupported zirconia crown. While waiting for healing the patient had tooth whitening and restoration of non-carious cervical cavities on adjacent teeth.
“NeoTell is an impressive diagnostic tool. It is a necessity for my day-to-day implant dentistry especially on immediately placed and loaded implant cases. This tool makes communication easier with patients explaining the clinician's decision on the next stage of their implant treatment.”
