[Patient information]
- 69 years old, Male
- PMH: Non-contributory
- No known drug allergy
- C.C: "I feel sharp pain whenever I bite something."
- Diagnosis: Cracked tooth(mesial root)

[Treatment Plan]
1. Extraction of the tooth #36
2. Immediate implant placement with simultaneous bone grafting at the gap between the implant and the extraction socket
3. Delivery of final restoration after 3 months
4. Periodical follow-up
[Pre-operative observation]
Clinical view and periapical radiograph of #36 with a mesial root fracture indicated by a red arrow.
Prior to the extraction of #36, indexing(or impression) of the surgery area is performed with a Pre-Guide(PGS13).

Atraumatic extraction of #36 to preserve the septum and thorough irrigation of the socket with saline.

The osteotomy is done 1 to 2mm deeper than the extraction socket so that good initial stability can be achieved.

Plasma surface treatment on imlant can be obtained with Osteo Active Unit, which siginificantly increases hydrophilicity of implant surface.

Implant (IT-III Wide Ø5.0x11.5mm, Neobiotech) was placed more mesially on purpose based on prosthetic considerations. Bone graft material was filled at the gap between extraction socket and implant.

A wide-diameter healing abutment is connected to seal the extraction socket. The use of wide healing abutments prevents the loss of bone graft without suturing.

Panoramic radiograph shows the path and the position of the implant are ideal.

2 weeks post-up, soft tissue healing around the implant is almost complete.

6months post-op, Gingival architecture around #36 appears to be natural.

Periapical radiograph 6 months following the delivery of the final restoration. Note that peri-implant bone remains at its original level.

8 months post-op, No clinical change is noticed.
