At the 6th ITI Consensus Conference in 2018, a new classification system that combines the implant placement time and the anticipated loading protocol was introduced by Gallucci and co-workers (Gallucci et al. 2018). For immediate (type 1) implant placement, three implant placement/loading protocols were defined. These are: type 1A (defined as immediate placement and immediate restoration/loading), type 1B (defined as immediate placement and early loading) and type 1C (defined as immediate placement and conventional loading). The levels of evidence and weighted mean and median survival rates for each of the three protocols is reproduced from the publication. The indications, and surgical and prosthodontic procedures for the three protocols are described and illustrated by case reports.
