Gap (synonyms: jumping distance, bone gap) between the implant surface and surrounding bone upon the immediate implant placement can be used for buccal plate preservation. Our case report revised a ITI and Neves et al (2013) recommendations. Finally, case report in a 32-year-oldpatient confirms a good spontaneous bone healing and successful osseointegration in a situation of 2 mm gap between immediate implant allowing preserving a buccal plate.
