Rehabilitation with implants must seek not only functional repair but also strive for an aesthetically satisfying result. Tooth extraction results in the natural resorption of original hard tissues, with subsequent retraction of the surrounding soft tissues, and this is the surgeon's challenge: to restore function and aesthetics in as few steps as possible. A wide range of techniques and biomaterials are available on the market. It is known that biomaterials must be biocompatible, and among the various alternatives, resorbable biomaterials have the best outcomes with the least number of surgical steps. This clinical case report aimed to present guided tissue regeneration (GTR) with the aid of a collagen membrane with polylactic acid frame (PLA), concomitantly with the installation of two implants. GRT intended to promote new bone formation and guide bone covering with healthy soft tissue. After placing the biomaterials, the implants were positioned at the same surgical time. After 180 days, the osseointegration of the installed implant was in harmony with their surrounding tissues and structures as observed through image examination (panoramic radiography), allowing prosthetic rehabilitation without additional surgical intervention. The use of biomaterials and GTR are extremely valuable for the success and reduction of working time in rehabilitation with implants.
