Clinical case description:

A 35-year female patient presented with subgingival caries on tooth

25. After atraumatic extraction of the aforementioned tooth, the

socket was filled with Bio-Oss collagen® and its entrance was covered

by a Mucograft seal®. The socket healed uneventfully.

After 5 months, the area was reentried, and a 4.1 diameter

Straumann bone level implant was inserted in place.

After 3 months later, a second stage surgery was performed where

the sucessful result of the osseointegration procedure was confirmed

both clinically and radiographically.

The prosthetic rehabilitation which followed included a screw-retained

metal ceramic crown, delivered by Dr. Paris Ravanis, Prosthodontist
