The objective of this case report was to restore the young patient with missing teeth and extruded tooth using an immediate implant and synthetic bone graft material for the esthetic and comfort purpose. A 21-year young man reported extrusion of a tooth as well as missing teeth. Clinical examination revealed missing teeth in relation to (irt) 11 and 21, extrusion of tooth in relation to (irt) 12, patient had generalized fluorosis, and localized marginal gingivitis with melanin pigmentation. The patient is a known smoker, and he was advised the cessation of smoking before the treatment. This paper describes a step-by-step approach to different treatment phases, starting with surgical guide fabrication, immediate implant surgical procedures, bone grafting procedure, and later prosthesis fabrication. Follow-up resulted in a satisfactory outcome.
