Objectives To perform a literature review in order to evaluate the clinical outcomes of restorations supported by implants placed immediately after extraction in endodontically infected sockets. Materials and methods A Medline™ and EMBASE™ search was performed on articles published from 1966 to April 2009. A minimum of 6 month follow-up was required. Results Immediate implant placement after extraction of teeth with endodontic infection, performed after careful socket debridement, can be considered a viable technique. The reported survival rates are similar to those reported for secondary endodontic treatment. Conclusions Since the clinical reports on this topic are scarce, the level of evidence is low and the follow-up period is limited, more well-designed studies are required in order to assess relevance of this treatment alternative.
