Following a vertically fractured tooth extraction, the fresh socket is usually infected. In such cases, the remaining bone characteristics should be carefully evaluated to allow an optimal implant placement treatment plan. The immediate postextraction implant may present certain advantages over implant placement in healed sites such as possibility for immediate restoration and reduction of overall treatment time and surgical sessions. This chapter deals with bone defects resulting following extraction of a vertically fractured tooth and reviews the literature concerning treatment options in such cases, including implant placement together with different bone regeneration procedures. Advantages and risks involved of implant placement in the infected socket immediately following the extraction of the vertically fractured root will be discussed.
