A procedure is presented whereby treatment planning for the long-term restoration of imminent loss of well-rooted posterior maxillary teeth by immediate endosseous dental implant placement may aid the patient in avoiding major surgical reconstruction. The clinical case report presented illustrates the advantages of an immediate dental implant placement technique that is especially relevant and unique to the posterior maxilla. Anatomic advantages are discussed. (INT J ORAL MAXILLOFAC IMPLANTS 1996;11:529-533)
