Implant placement at the time of tooth loss or immediately thererestoration and preserve remaining bone. These endosseous implants use proven masonry fastener technouter diameter, allowing them to contact bone from crest to apex of a drilled bone defect or in an emechanism will provide initial implant stability and allow for subsequent integration. This technoloto place an implant in a delayed immediate surgical procedure or immediately following tooth extractanticipated to protect alveolar bone, require less surgical manipulation, provide more stable fixatirestoration and can be removed upon failure or disease.
