Two fractured tooth cases were reported, one with a front tooth missing, and the other with left lower back region of the jaw. Both of them needs immediate replacement for esthetic and the pain relief and immediate function. These patients were highly apprehensive and do not want second stage surgeries.
Discussion: Immediate implantation by newer technique called Tall and Tilted Pin Hole Immediately Loaded implants (TTPHIL) is explained in this article. In immediate implant procedure, implants are placed in sockets just after the extraction of the tooth. The main reason to go for immediate implantation is to preserve the contour of the tissue and dimension. Delivering the tooth within a day after the implantation procedure is considered a boon in implant dentistry as the gingival tissue grows according to the contoured crown which is considered advantageous unlike where the gingival tissue grows prior to the placement of the crown. Digital dentistry is an emerging field which incorporates digital or computer aided components. Most commonly thought area of digital dentistry is the CAD/CAM (Computer Aided Design/Computer aided Manufacturing).
Conclusion: This case series describes two cases in which the crown was fabricated and delivered within a day after placement of a dental implant by TTPHIL technique using CAD CAM technology.
