A clinical investigation of the Rescue internal implant.
Immediate implant placements in molar sites have been problematic. This report describes the use of a novel dental implant placed immediately in first and second molar sites.
Implants were inserted for 19 patients in molar sites immediately after tooth extraction. Patients were followed for 1 year post-insertion, with radiographs obtained and periodontal parameters recorded every 6 months.
The implant success rate was 95.24%. Esthetics generally was acceptable in the posterior quadrants. Crestal bone die-back in most cases only extended to the crest of the implant. The periodontal parameters recorded at the 6- and 12-month recalls were consistent with periodontal health.
Use of this novel implant system can be successful if the guidelines for its use are followed. It is best utilized by experienced implantologists.
