Although immediate implantation has not been previously recommended in infected sites, it is now becoming a procedure

of choice in modern implant dentistry. We report a case of a 65-year-old male patient, who required multiple tooth

extractions in the lower jaw and fabrication of a new overdenture in the lower jaw and a complete denture in the upper

jaw. Immediate implantation in infected tooth sockets followed extraction. Two NobelReplace™ Tapered implants Nobel

BioCare, Zürich, Switzerland, one 13 mm long and 4.3 mm wide and the other 13 mm long and 5.0 mm wide, were

placed in the position 33 and 43. The site was sutured and a temporary denture was fabricated by adjusting the old denture.

After a period of three months the implant site was reopened and healing abutments were placed. Impressions were

made using the Impregum Penta Soft 3M ESPE, St. Paul, Minn, USA polyether material. Ball Abutment Titanium™

was used as a patrix attachment and a matrix was inserted into the denture. Clinical examination and x-ray analysis after

six months showed no significant changes of the implants. Bone resorption was within standard values. Although it

is still a controversial subject, immediate implantation in infected sites can be a safe and predictable procedure if surgical

protocols are followed. However, further research is needed to draw firm conclusions.
