The predictability and success of an aesthetic outcome relies on the optimal conditions (i.e. an inflammation-free socket, stable soft tissue situation) and correct positioning of the implant. In particular, the basic requirement for a successful implantation is the primary stability of the implant. However, the natural tooth root and the implant differ in their geometry. To account for this difference and to allow for a stable integration of the implant, as well as to prevent resorption of the often extremely thin buccal wall, the gap between the implant shoulder and the margins of the alveolus may be filled with a bone graft material. Smaller gaps may not require augmentation, but the use of a grafting material may nonetheless improve the soft tissue contours. An easy-to-apply putty, such as maxresorb® inject, simplifies the procedure. The gap surrounding the implant may also be filled with a particulate bone graft material such as maxresorb®, cerabone®, or maxgraft® granules. Covering the socket with the Jason® fleece helps stabilize the grafting material, in particular after the application of a putty like maxresorb® inject.
