Clinicians encounter challenges when placing implants immediately after extraction in periodontally compromised patients. A study was undertaken in 73 periodontally compromised patients to identify these challenges and identify situations in which immediate postextraction placement of implants in this patient group is not optimal.

The study found that immediate implant placement after extraction is not recommended for periodontally compromised patients with advanced horizontal interproximal bone loss, advanced furcation involvement, periapical lesions, proximity to the sinus, proximity to nerve canals, and limitation in mandibular opening. These results were used to establish suggested guidelines for the placement of implants immediately after extraction in periodontally compromised patients.
