The aim of this paper was to estimate, in a retrospective way, integration of hard and soft tissues in immediately loaded immediate postextractive implants. Benefits of this technique could be: single stage surgery, biological saving of tissues, aesthetic management of edentulism, good integration of both hard and soft tissues. Immediate loading of a postextractive implant seems also to produce a positive effect on the quality of perimplant soft tissues. The implants used in the present study have some advantages such as high auto-threading and auto-tapping ability, progressive increase of the thickness of the threads, at the apical and coronal level. All these features have helped to obtain a high primary stability.
