Use of combination antiretroviral therapy regimens, including a protease inhibitor, has greatly improved the survival and systemic health of HIV-positive patients. Due to the esthetic requirements of the patient in this case report, placement of an endosseous implant into a fresh extraction site, restored with a single crown, was the treatment of choice. The implant and restoration are functioning well 18 months after placement of the fixture. J Periodontol 1998;69:1167-1171.
