Aim and objective: To evaluate the prognosis of an immediate loaded endosseous implant. Background: Immediate loaded implants have become the need of the hour owing to the increasing esthetic demand and have overcome the disadvantages of traditional loading by reducing the treatment time, reducing the period of edentulism, and reducing the need of a second stage of surgery and patient discomfort. Case description: A patient reported to us for prosthetic rehabilitation of his missing teeth with respect to the upper right back tooth region. An immediately loaded endosseous implant of the dimension 4.2 × 13 mm was placed and prosthesis was restored. The patient was followed up for a period of 5 years. Conclusion: After a period of 5 years, the area around the implant showed negligible amount of crestal bone loss. Immediate loaded implants can be considered as a reliable treatment protocol owing to the high success rate. Clinical significance: Careful case selection, thorough treatment planning with an expert implant team, and follow-up of surgical and prosthetic protocols are essential for the success of an implant.
