Abstract: Early restoration of the masticatory function, phonatory and aesthetics is some of the current goals of the therapy based on end osseous implants. Facing the classic protocols of implant insertion, which recommend a period of several months between extraction and implant placement. Alternatives have been developed and demonstrate that immediate implant placement after tooth extraction permits adequate osseointegration, even in those cases where there is a periapical disease. This article presents a case with immediate implant placement of a lateral incisors with prior periapical pathology. After 12-month follow-up, there were no mechanical or biological complications. The patient gave high satisfaction marks for the overall treatment, giving visual analogue scale score of nine. Immediate post-extraction implants have been arisen as an alternative to traditional implants on completely healed bone. Our main aim is to reduce treatment time and number of surgical procedures, along with other objectives such as reduced bone re-absorption and improved aesthetics.
