Extraction followed by placement of immediate implant has become a reliable and time saving method of esthetic and functional rehabilitation of a patient. Achieving good primary stability with preservation of hard and soft tissue is the key to successful placement of immediate implant. With the advent of immediate single-stage implant placement and immediate prosthesis fabrication, the edentulous patients can walk out of the clinic with “Teeth within a day”. Refining clinical protocols, applying sound biomechanical principles, improving implant design, with new implant surfaces have resulted in the increased use of immediate implant. However there are chances of implant failure due to greater crestal bone loss around the healing implants resulting from traumatic extraction. This could be minimized or prevented by atruamatic extraction procedure. Many clinical trials reported survival rates of immediately loaded implants similar to that of two-stage unloaded healing approaches. This article throws a light on atruamatic extraction & various techniques of atruamatic extraction, advantages, disadvantages and success criteria for immediate implant loading. Three cases with different techniques of atruamatic extraction of tooth and immediate implant rehabilitation is reported.

Keywords: Atruamatic extraction, Techniques, Immediate implant loading, Advantages and disadvantages of immediate implant loading.
