Introduction: Immediate insertion of post extractive single implants in areas of high esthetic value remains a challenge for the clinician because it is difficult to obtain a restoration that can mimic the emergencies and profiles of nature, in perfect symmetry with the natural, contralateral tooth. To achieve a successful esthetic outcome with a single implant supported restoration in the anterior region, in fact, it is mandatory to preserve and maintain intact bone, as well as the overlying soft tissues architecture. 

Aim of the study: This study is designed to evaluate success and stability of immediately placed dental implant using socket shield technique.

Material and Method: This randomized controlled clinical study was conducted on ten adult patients of both genders. All patients had maxillary single rooted teeth indicated for extraction and immediate implant placement. implants were placed in association with the socket shield technique

Results: it was found that the amount of bone loss at the period from implant placement to 6 months was statistically insignificant. And all implants were osseo integrated successfully without any post-operative complications.

Conclusion: socket shield technique could preserve buccal plate of bone and provide high aesthetic results.
