The placement of implants in patients with aggressive periodontitis has always been questioned. The presence of highly pathogenic bacteria, severe periodontal bone destruction and the refractory nature of this disease tends to deter the clinician from placing implants in these patients. With good patient compliance and regular maintenance, the placement of implants in these patients becomes a viable treatment option. The following is a report of an implant placed in one such patient and successfully followed up over a period of 5 years.
