Aim of this retrospective study was to evaluate the one-year clinical and radiographic outcomes of implants with a triangular shaped neck inserted immediately after tooth extraction in esthetic zones. Patients in which immediate postextraction implants were placed and restored in the anterior maxilla, who underwent a Cone Beam Computed Tomograpy (CBCT) at baseline and after 12-16 months were included. The socket was preserved using deproteinized bovine bone to fill the buccal gap, and a resorbable collagen membrane. One-year implant survival and prosthesis success were evaluated. Hard and soft tissue stability was assessed by measuring various parameters on CBCT images. Clinical evaluation was also performed and Pink Esthetic Score (PES) assessed. Data from baseline and one-year follow-up were statistically compared using paired tests and a significance threshold of p=0.05. Twenty patients (13 males, 7 females, mean age 50.42±11.35 years) were included. Each contributed with one implant. No implant was lost. A significant improvement in PES was detected. Excellent hard and soft tissue preservation was observed after one year of function. Immediate placement of implants with a triangular shaped neck after tooth extraction, can be a suitable solution even for areas with a high aesthetic demand, such as the anterior maxilla.
