Losing teeth – particularly in the aesthetic zone of the anterior maxilla – represents a great dilemma for a patient and a challenge for the attending dentist. Immediate placement of dental implants at the day of tooth extraction is an established treatment concept that offers the possibility to provide fixed provisional crowns within few hours. Troublesome removable prostheses can thus be avoided, and the psychological trauma of tooth loss is minimised. The Copy-abutment technique was developed at the Academy for Oral Implantology in Vienna (Austria) and guarantees the best possible preservation of soft-tissue aesthetics by immediate implant restoration using custom-made abutments composed of highly aesthetic zirconia ceramic. On the basis of a modern all-digital workflow and a close cooperation with the affiliated dental laboratory, it is possible to provide the patient with a new tooth in just 1 day.
