Post-extractive immediate implant placement and loading of screw retained crown on #11

Introduction This case present the extraction of the tooth 11 which was fractured after a dive in a swimming-pool and its substitution with an immediate implant and a screwed provisional crown. The procedure is described step-by-step from the extraction to the final restoration.

During the surgery it is of fundamental importance the correct implant insertion that must be slightly palatal respect the post-extraction socket to obtain the best esthetic result.

After the implant insertion the gap between the implant it selves and the residual vestibular bone must be filled with xenograft in order to prevent the resorption of the thin buccal bone wall

The provisional abutment inserted before the relining of the provisional crown on it

The provisional crown in the correct 3D position thanks to the presence of 2 resin stops. In this case no connective tissue graft was inserted because the emergency profile of the right upper incisor was slightly coronal respect the contralateral upper incisor

We need to add some resin in order to create the ideal emergency profile
