Abstract

Presently dental implants are one of the most exciting and rapidly developing aspects of dental practice. Implant dentistry has come a long way from skepticism to being accepted as the best modality to treat complete or partial edentulism. In the last two decades a great deal of activity in the field has occurred with the development of better materials and newer techniques that have resulted in improved clinical performance of implants. Placement of dental implants into fresh extraction sites offers a number of significant advantages to both the patients and the clinicians. Although some of the early implant practitioners assume that long term implant survival depended on placement on healed alveolar ridge, the growing body of evidence confirms that immediate implant placement yields excellent and predictable results. Considering the important role of a Periodontist in the insertion and maintenance of implant, the available literature has been reviewed.
