The loss and replacement of anterior maxillary teeth pose several challenges. Treatment must successfully address immediate tooth replacement, esthetics, patient comfort, and psychologic acceptance. The purpose of this case report is to present a prosthetic and surgical technique for immediate tooth replacement following extraction in an area of severe localized bone loss. Combined full- and partial- thickness flaps associated with the use of Bio-Oss collagen grafting material and a Bio-Gide membrane were used for alveolar ridge reconstruction. To improve the final esthetic result, a connective tissue graft was used to increase ridge volume and papillary height. (Int J Periodontics Restorative Dent 2003;23:491–497.)
