and be able to visualize the steps to maximize soft tissue integration and
achieve optimal implant aesthetics
A 45-year-old male patient presented with unaesthetic anterior
restorations. Following comprehensive clinical and radiographic examination and
removal of the existing crown restoration, root decay and a root fracture were
observed. The treatment plan consisted of extracting the left central incisor
and immediately placing a single implant into the site.
First, the adjacent teeth were prepared, and a three-unit
provisional bridge was fabricated to temporize the case after implant
placement. The thick biotype and positive gingival architecture of the patient
were favorable factors for this type of treatment.
