Abstract

Immediate loading of dental implant in the anterior tooth region has been a growing trend and eliminates the compromised esthetics, function, discomfort, and inconvenience associated with traditional two-stage implant procedures. This case report presents the clinical application of implant placement with immediate loading using leukocyte-platelet-rich fibrin (L-PRF) in the anterior esthetic region.The implant was planned to rehabilitate in the anterior missing tooth region. As per the patient’s desire, the implant was immediately loaded and L-PRF membrane was placed around the implant under local anesthesia on the day of surgery.The use of L-PRF for the maintenance of crestal bone and soft tissue at the implant sites provided an adequate clinical condition for better esthetics.
