ABSTRACT:Immediate extraction and implant placement has now become a standard treatment protocol in clinical dentistry. The advantage of this procedure is that the patient gets the extraction of hopeless tooth followed by implant placement same day. This case report describes extraction of a grossly decayed mandibular molar tooth, followed by immediate placement of a dental implant in the prepared socket. The tooth was atraumatically extracted, the socket was prepared to the required depth and an Alfa Bio Implant was inserted. Second stage surgery and impression was made 4 months after implant insertion, and a deﬁnitive restoration was placed. The atraumatic operating technique and the immediate insertion of the Implant resulted in the preservation of the hard and soft tissues at the extraction site. The patient exhibited no clinical or radiologic complications during clinical monitoring. The dental implant and definitive restoration provided the patient with esthetics, function, comfort, and most importantly preservation of tissues.
