Abstract

When a patient with a nonrestorable dentition desires an immediate restoration, fabrication and use of a stable surgical template can be challenging. Conventionally made surgical templates may lack stability and may, therefore, be less predictable. This article describes the fabrication of a surgical template that permitted the use of staged tooth extraction to facilitate predictable immediate implant placement in a patient with a nonrestorable dentition.
