The power of socket shield technique

The case: forty year old patient. Agronomist, he works in Africa, for a building construction company. He is on vacation, and we are at 22 August when he comes to my office with this fractured 45. First and second level radiographic examinations show an hopless element, with a thin bundle bone. We proceed. PET, implant with healing screw, and suture. It starts on August 28th and I don't even see it for a check, until April of this year. Easter holidays. Pet's results never cease to amaze me. The implant is perfectly integrated, and present bony peaks. The gingiva healed (note the disappearance of the recession), the volumes present. Digital print and delivery run, knowing that he will leave for Africa and who knows when I will have the opportunity to see him again
