Immediate implant placement by using natural bovine bone substitute and acellular collagen matrix




Immediate implant placement, natural bovine bone, acellular collagen matrix


Adequate bone and soft tissue volume is important to allow proper implants osseointegration, survival and esthetic result. The aim of this case report was to observe an immediate implant placement by using natural bovine bone substitute and acellular collagen matrix to gain better soft tissue result. Upon screw-retained provisional bridge removal after four months, a successful peri-implant soft tissue healing was observed. Then one year after final bridge, a stable soft and hard tissue situation, as well as sufficient implant stability, granules osteointegration into newly formed bone was recorded.
