Loss of teeth because of trauma in aesthetic zone is a common accident. Tooth loss may lead to bone resorption and collapse of the gingival architecture, which leads to unaesthetic appearance and functional impairment. Replacement of tooth in the anterior region is aesthetically challenging. Immediate implant placement into fresh extraction socket is considered an effective option for restoring missing teeth as it reduces the treatment time, preserves the hard and soft tissues, and reduces the number of surgical interventions. This case report describes application of diode laser in achieving a good emergence profile in a case of immediate implant placement and early implant loading in a 24-year-old boy who was with satisfied aesthetic and functional outcomes.
