Summary:

Immediate implant placement has proved to be a highly successful treatment modality, with a high rate of success and patient acceptance. However, not every site has the ideal bone morphology suitable for immediate implant placement. This necessitates the use of guided bone regeneration techniques either simultaneously or prior to implant placement. Presented here is a case report wherein guided bone regeneration was done simultaneously at the time of immediate implant placement to achieve a desirable outcome.
