Technological advancements have resulted in modern dental implant protocols that provide the possibility to immediately load implants in fresh extraction sockets. This article briefly addresses various aspects to be considered such as computed tomography (CT), surgical guides, implant considerations for the edentulous patient, and considerations for immediate implant placement and loading. In this clinical case, immediate post-extraction implant placement with immediate loading was performed accurately because of the planning done with the CT scan. The use of a stereolithographic model and a surgical guide prevented technical difficulties and improved the predictability during the prosthetically driven surgery.
