Abstract
  • Effects of antibiotics on the clinical outcomes of immediate implant placement replacing a tooth with an apical pathology were examined using a double-blind-randomized-controlled trial, antibiotics (N=10) and placebo (N=10). Post-operative pain/discomfort, cone-beam computed tomography and impressions were used to evaluate clinical outcomes. Survival rates of 100% (antibiotics) and 78% (control) were observed. There was no statistical difference in any clinical outcomes except for mid-facial soft tissue changes (p=0.02). Antibiotics appear to have little effect on immediate implant treatment outcomes.
