The following case report describes the buccal and coronal bone augmentation around an irretrievable tooth using forced eruption and buccal root torque for immediate nonsubmerged implant placement. A mandibular left second premolar with degree 2 mobility, severe buccal bone resorption, and interproximal angular bony defects was subjected to forced eruption and buccal root torque. Five months after this process, the tooth was displaced 15 mm coronally and the root apex faced buccally. Buccal and coronal bone augmentation and soft tissue enlargement were evident at reentry surgery. This technique enabled proper implant placement in a situation where the bone was compromised.
