The purpose of this study was to determine whether a single immediate implant placed into the postextraction palatal socket of a maxillary molar would be as efficacious as a single implant placed centrally in a staged approach. A total of 61 immediate implants were placed in 52 patients and restored after 6 months. Periotest and Osstell were used to determine implant stability, and cone beam computed tomography was used for marginal bone level assessment. During the 2-year follow-up, implant survival was 100%. It was concluded that immediate palatal implants can safely restore extracted molars in the maxilla.
