The immediate implant placement and provisionalization (IIPP) is associated with vestibular recession and decrease or loss of buccal bone plate, in most case series. The search for biomaterials and clinical protocols that minimize this problem is the focus of most current research, but still with no resolution. Thus, the aim of this literature review was to study the behavior of hard and soft peri-implantar tissue in IIPP which used biomaterials and autogenous bone as bone graft materials. The PubMed database was used as source for research, selecting 41 articles published from December 1992 to January 2017. Considering the limitations of this work, it was observed that most studies report a good implant survival rate and a good aesthetic result in the short term. However, it could be seen recession of the buccal mucosa, reducing the thickness of the bone plate and the height of the vestibular bone crest in most articles, regardless of the graft material used.
