Immediate implantation after fracture of 2.4 – soft tissue management using mucoderm®
Dr. Sileno Tancredi

A patient presented with a fracture of 2.4. The tooth was extracted and an implant was placed immediately in the socket together with bone grafting with cerabone® plus to fill the gap around the implant neck. Submerged implant placement was performed and the implant closed using a cover screw.
Afterwards, mucoderm® was positioned slightly below the marginal gingiva and sutured with simple sutures to stabilize it. The matrix was intentionally
left exposed. Following implant uncovering and full healing of the site, a permanent crown was placed one year after extraction. The regular follow-ups show a stable clinical situation with excellent soft tissue conditions with a good emergence profile.
