AbstractThis is a case of immediate implant placement with socket shield technique and root submergence in anterior maxilla. Submergence of tooth is useful to maintain the attachment complex of the tooth which will prevent the alveolar bone resorption and will maintain the emergence profile for pontic of implant supported prosthesis. Socket shield technique is used to prevent the resorption of buccal cortical plate by keeping buccal fragment intact with viable periodontal ligament. This is a case report of 23-year-old male with a chief complaint of fractured tooth in anterior maxilla due to an accident. There was no history of unconsciousness and vomiting after the accident. Implant placement in 11 and root submergence with 21 was performed for prosthetic rehabilitation.
Socket shield technique is specifically done in tooth with thin buccal plate of bone which might fracture while extracting tooth in immediate implant placement. Root submergence technique has been reported to maintain the emergence of soft tissue profile for the pontic area in the maxillary anterior region. These techniques prevent resorption of periodontal attachment complex and alveolar ridge.
