A 17 year old boy came into my office today missing tooth #8. Supposedly it was knocked out by his brother 8 days ago. The CT scan shows that the buccal cortical plate is still intact but the gingiva appear traumatized buccally. How would you go about treating this? Should I go in and graft, place the implant and graft, graft and use coronally positioned sutures to move the tissue coronally? I have placed many implants, but never had to deal with this kind of a situation, so your advice would be much appreciated. What do you recommend for a treatment sequence?
