A clinical case report of the 2 mm. intrusion of tooth 1.6 and the rehabilitation of the space left by the extracted tooth 4.6 with a single implant and crown.

Four micro screws were installed in relation to tooth 1.6, two buccal and two in the hard palate. The tooth was intruded in a period of six months with two power chains anchored to cross-shaped micro screws. The chains were replaced every 21 days. The implant to replace tooth 4.6 was also placed and after six months tooth 1.6 was in position and the implant was osseointegrated and ready to be rehabilitated.

The objectives, function and esthetics, were achieved without the need of occlusal wear nor the loss of tooth vitality. Four years after treatment the case is stable, without changes.
