Dental implants can be placed in fresh sockets just after tooth extraction. These are called "immediate implants." The intention of placing immediate implants is to try to preserve tissue contour, dimension, and also decrease treatment time. The soft and hard tissue changes following tooth extraction are in close relationship to the timing of the implant placement. In spite of similar success rates reported for immediate, early, and delayed placement, it is very important to understand the risk factors related to each procedure, to have careful case selection, and to closely follow the surgical and prosthetic protocols. The paper describes a case of 29-year-old male with right maxillary lateral incisor root stump, treated with extraction of the root stump followed by immediate implant placement.
