Molar replacement is the most frequent therapeutic modality in implant dentistry. However, many different clinical protocols are proposed and utilized in order to maintains volume stability after tooth extraction (including early placement, socket preservation and immediate implant placement). From patient standpoint, immediate protocols provide satisfying experience, but surgical manipulation for closure obtention may generate invasiveness and unpredictability. In this perspective, the goal of this day article is to describe a clinical workflow combining immediate implant placement on molar sites and prosthetic non invasive closure by the use of a customized healing abutment (SSA: Sealing Socket abutment). SSA concept (Sealing Socket Abutment), offers a minimally invasive solution for wound closure and a mechanical support for tissue stabilization during healing time. Based on the SSA (sealing socket abutment) Concept, the SSA Gingival Fit Abutment ( Biotech Dental, France) has been developped to provide a multi-functional, anatomical and directly customizable solution. The use of anatomical healing abutment immediately after extraction and immediate implant placement for molar sites has the potential to improve treatment workflow from a surgical as well as prosthetic standpoint.
