Case Study

Replacement of an abandoned mandibular molar: Part 1

By Dr. Peter Hunt

A mandibular first molar had a root canal but no final restorative therapy. Now the tooth is hopeless and needs extraction. Removing the tooth is difficult because it breaks up. Once out it is desirable to place an implant immediately in what available bone remains and then to Socket Regenerate at the same time. This can save many months of therapy and additional surgical exposures. See also the Case Presentation "Replacement of an Abandoned Mandibular Molar - Part 2 Healing and final Restorative Therapy".
