A 41-year-old female patient had undergone an implant treatment about 2 years previously. She presented with purulent exudate coming from the right nostril and from one of the dental implants placed after a maxillary sinus elevation. An endodontic lesion was also present next to the infected implant. The implant was mobile and painful. The treatment comprised only two surgical phases: the first phase aimed to eradicate the infection by removing the infected implant and endodontically treated tooth and closing the oroantral communication; the second phase was based on simultaneous implant removal, sinus elevation, simultaneous implant placement, guided bone regeneration (GBR), and immediate loading to reduce the healing time. This clinical case shows the potential for tissue regeneration even after iatrogenic implant dentistry.
