Conventionally, before placing dental implants, the compromised teeth are removed, and the extraction sockets are left to heal for several months. However, in the recent past, to preserve the alveolar bone level from collapsing and to reduce treatment time and procedures, tooth extraction is followed by implant placement immediately without waiting for the site to heal. The situation becomes critical with the presence of periapical pathology as it may cause failure of implant due to the presence of remnants of infection. This case series shows the survival of immediate implants placed in postextraction-infected sites and restored with cemented crowns.
