The purpose of this case series was to evaluate the survival rate and the incidence of complications of implants inserted and immediately loaded in sites where an impacted tooth was present in the anterior maxillary or mandibular arches (incisor to premolar). The implants were immediately inserted, drilling through the impacted teeth. Site preparation started in the crestal bone and continued into the impacted tooth's enamel and dentin. Seven patients were treated and 11 implants were inserted, 3 in the mandibular arch and 8 in the maxillary arch. All implants healed uneventfully without any adverse clinical or radiographic signs or symptoms, resulting in a success rate of 100%. Once loaded, the implants were in function and monitored for 5 to 7 years. Although more studies and a larger sample size are needed to validate this unconventional procedure, it may be considered as a possible clinical option to overcome invasive procedures and surgical complications related to the extraction of impacted teeth.

Artificial substitutes for body parts, and materials inserted into tissue for functional, cosmetic, or therapeutic purposes. Prostheses can be functional, as in the case of artificial arms and legs, or cosmetic, as in the case of an artificial eye. Implants, all surgically inserted or grafted into the body, tend to be used therapeutically. IMPLANTS, EXPERIMENTAL is available for those used experimentally.
Devices, usually alloplastic, surgically inserted into or onto the jawbone, which support a single prosthetic tooth and serve either as abutments or as cosmetic replacements for missing teeth.
A tooth that is prevented from erupting by a physical barrier, usually other teeth. Impaction may also result from orientation of the tooth in an other than vertical position in the periodontal structures.
A partial denture constructed before the teeth it replaces are removed. It is then inserted immediately after the removal of the natural teeth for functional and cosmetic reasons during the healing process. It is to be replaced later by the fitted partial denture.
