Single tooth replacement in the esthetic zone has been one of the most common indications for dental implant placement. Compromised teeth are removed using atraumatic principles and immediately replaced by an implant-supported provisional restoration, with excellent esthetic, biological, and functional results.
However, in cases of compromised sites with bone loss/gingival recessions, the clinical scenario presents a different dilemma.
Until now, all developed surgical recommendations required long term treatment with possible undesirable complications in the tissue architecture. The Immediate Dentoalveolar Restoration (IDR) is a surgical and prosthetical technique established to broaden indications for immediate loading on individual teeth. In this way, tissue losses with varied extensions are reconstructed in the same surgical session of implant placement and provisional crown installation, reducing the number of interventions and maintaining predictability on esthetic aspects. The IDR protocol was developed more than 10 years ago from the need to minimize the treatment time and morbidity of reconstructive procedures used in these cases. In this course we discuss the scientific basis, the step-by-step technique and indications. The IDR technique, which advocates minimally invasive surgery and flapless procedures, is presented as a viable and reproducible treatment option.
Numerous case presentations will feature one or more compromised socket walls of the tooth involved, with or without changes of the gingival margin, some with more than 10 years of clinical, radiographic and CT scan follow up.
