Socket shield technique Part 1
67 year old male with general occlusal disease and breakdown of his dentition. Has had implants placed in the mandibular posteriors about a year before looking for a solution in the maxilla. As part of the more comprehensive treatment, the maxillary left central incisor (21, FDI system)was marked for extraction . The socket shield technique for immediate implant placement was employed (20th Dec 2013). A screw retained PFM restoration was installed on 5th June 2014. There is a long story of a lab screw up with his other restoration which I will not get into, but the 11 & 22 have composite build ups on E-max crowns bonded on as as provisionals as a quick salvage operation.
