Introduction: Implant placement in extraction sockets is considered a daunting challenge due to offering risks of bone remodeling and consequent gingival alterations. Objective: his study aims at proposing a protocol for selecting the diameter of upper anterior osseointegrated implants placed in extraction sockets. his protocol was based on the bucco-palatal dimension of the socket and allows a 3-mm gap to form between the implant and the outer surface of the buccal bone wall. Such gap must be filled with biomaterial or autograft so as to increase the predictability of longterm results.
