A 30-year-old male patient was referred to us with root remains in tooth 22. The patient had no relevant medical history and was a non-smoker.
We proceeded to perform the extraction as atraumatically as possible. We placed the implant parallel to adjacent teeth and with emergency through its cingulum.
We observed some collapse of the buccal bone plate that would be aggravated following the extraction of the tooth. To compensate for this, we obtained a connective tissue graft with single incision technique from the palate, and tunnelised it through the gingival groove.
We hope you find it interesting.
You can see the follow-up to the case here: Follow-up: Post-extraction implant + Connective tissue graft
