Abstract

Objectives: To perform a literature review in order to evaluate the clinical outcomes of restorations supported by implants placed immediately after extraction in endodontically infected sockets. Materials and methods: A Medline™ and EMBASE™ search was performed on articles published from 1966 to April 2009. A minimum of 6 month follow-up was required. Results: Immediate implant placement after extraction of teeth with endodontic infection, performed after careful socket debridement, can be considered a viable technique. The reported survival rates are similar to those reported for secondary endodontic treatment. Conclusions: Since the clinical reports on this topic are scarce, the level of evidence is low and the follow-up period is limited, more well-designed studies are required in order to assess relevance of this treatment alternative.
