Trauma of maxillary teeth is a common accident. In most cases, the result is a root or crown fracture requiring tooth extraction and implant placement. Immediate postextraction implants are considered an effective option for restoring missing teeth in order to achieve successful aesthetic and functional outcomes. The aim of this article is to describe a clinical case in which a fractured maxillary canine was replaced by an osseointegrated implant using a simplified technique in a patient who was a smoker and presented poor oral hygiene. The technique adopted permits a reduction of the number of implant components and consequently a lower cost of treatment, while at the same time maintaining acceptable aesthetic and functional outcomes.

Keywords:: Immediate loading, postextraction implant, mount, flapless.
