The success of osseointegrated dental implants has revolutionized dentistry. A healing period without early loading is currently still considered a prerequisite for implant integration. The aim of this case report was to assess the soft and hard tissue changes around the dental implant after delayed loading in a D 3 type of bone and thereby evaluating its success rate. Necessary documentation and investigation have been done. An implant was placed in a D 3 bone using standard surgical protocol. After an ensured healing of soft and hard tissues, the prosthesis was placed after 4 months. Peri-implant evaluation was done at intervals. At the end of 1 st year, the implants satisfied the criteria for the success rate. Thus with regards to implant survival in less dense bone, higher success rates can be achieved with aseptic and atraumatic procedure with delayed loading and appropriate postoperative care along with a consistent supportive periodontal therapy.
