In a first time, an orthodontic treatment was established in order to have a suitable space to a later upper canine replacement. In a second instance, the extraction of the canine was done, including a combined treatment of bone regeneration, with an immediate insertion of an implant. To conclude the treatment a prosthetic restoration with a crown supported on an implant was completed. Review of the literature was done in order to present the actual situation of the problem
