Is immediate implant placement advantageous for the management of aggressive periodontitis patients in maxillary esthetic zone? An update of systematic reviews
Aim To determine the clinical safety, survival and success of the immediate dental implant placement in aggressive periodontitis patients.
Materials and methods In April 2019, Pubmed, Cochrane central database, Web of Science, Lilacs and hand search were searched with no restrictions for language, publication date or follow up period. All types of prospective studies reporting the prognosis of immediate implant placement were included. Outcomes were implant survival rate, complications during placement and postoperatively and marginal bone loss around implants.
Results After screening of the titles, abstracts and full text of the reported studies, none of those met the pre-determined inclusion criteria.
Conclusions There was no sufficient evidence regarding the survival rate of immediately placed dental implants in patients affected with aggressive periodontitis. Long term prospective double armed clinical studies are recommended.
