Periodontally compromised teeth are a common problem observed in adults, and the extraction is a viable solution in some of these situations. When prosthetic rehabilitation with implants take place after the extraction, orthodontic extrusion may convert the tooth indicated for extraction into a useful tooth. A 48-year-old woman's chief complaint was the esthetics of her maxillary incisors with advanced periodontal disease. The incisors were orthodontically erupted to augment the bone topography for implant recipient sites and prosthetic rehabilitation. Three implants were selected and inserted in a single surgical procedure without any complications. A 10 months follow-up showed that the implants were stable with the prosthetic crowns preserving the surrounding soft tissues, and improving overall aesthetics and function.
