Aim It is not common to report in the literature about complications during intraoral dental implant removal and its immediate approach during implant surgery. This report describes the approach of an intraoperative accident during an explantation and its follow up.

Case report In this case, an immediate implant was placed in the presence of an implant remnant left after its partial explantation due to implant fracture during the procedure. A cone-beam CT scan was taken after six months post rehabilitation and revealed bone formation surrounding the replaced implant and the remaining titanium fragment.

Results There were no functional or aesthetic alterations that affected the outcome of the treatment after 2 years of follow-up.

Conclusions This satisfactory result suggests that this immediate solution can be used to obtain adequate results when failed dental implants cannot be completely eliminated, which reduces the duration of the treatment and the number of surgical procedures.
