The aim of this case report was to describe an alternative treatment for the healing and maintenance of peri-implant mucosa in esthetical region. Managing the peri-implant soft tissue is one of the most challenging tasks in anterior implant esthetics, especially when replacing a failing tooth. However, not all patients underwent extraction, and immediate implant placement can receive loading, conducting to uncertain predictability. This is a case report that describes an alternative treatment for the healing and maintenance of the peri-implant mucosa in an esthetically significant region, through the use of a customized abutment to obtain an emergency profile when there is insufficient torque for immediate implant loading. The present technique was able to ensure not only healthy peri-implant soft and hard tissues, but also esthetic maintenance of the anterior region for immediate implant placement. This clinical case demonstrates a different manipulation technique from the peri-implant soft tissues in immediate implants of the esthetic region favoring the peri-implant health and clinical results, promoting treatment success, and patient satisfaction.
