Replacement of missing anterior tooth is the most esthetic challenging situation. Following tooth loss, reduction in bone height is often accompanied by alteration in gingival architecture. Immediate implant placement in freshly extracted socket is said to decrease these. This case report describes the step by step procedure for the same. Implant placement was followed by immediate implant loading by cementing a zirconia crown. Review check up were done till 36 months and showed implant to be functional. In addition to reduced treatment time and fewer surgeries, good esthetics and patient satisfaction are obvious advantage of immediate implant placement.
