A long-term patient walked into my office on a Monday afternoon a little frantic because she broke off #12 at the gumline. She wanted an implant as soon as possible.
Normally, I would extract the tooth and bone graft with a non-resorbable membrane. However, the weekend before I was at the OsteoReady 2-Day Mini-Residency and learned how to place an immediate implant with great primary stability. So, I took my newfound knowledge, and with all the confidence in the world told the patient, "Absolutely. We can do an implant for you today."
