A 45-year-old female patient presented with pain and no suppuration on the inferior border of the zygomatic right bone. Clinical examination and 3D cone beam computed tomography revealed the presence of an endodontic lesion associated with a fenestration of the buccal bone. Extraction, bone augmentation, implant placement, and immediate loading were performed simultaneously to reduce the healing period. Just 4 months after the procedure, pins that were visible through the mucosa were removed using two small incisions and without raising a new flap, and the case was finalized. The pins inserted next to the zygomatic bone were not removed, thus allowing for a minimally invasive surgical approach.
