Introduction: Nowadays, the use of orthodontics at any age, from adolescents to adults, has become a treatment of choice to correct malocclusions; Therefore, it is feasible to use it in the opening of spaces and their maintenance to later place a dental implant and thus replace a lost tooth.

However, it is not known the ideal moment during orthodontic treatment in which the specialist can place the dental implant, leaving it in osseointegration so that it can later be rehabilitated; and it is often placed after the treatment is finished; so it takes time for the patient to see results from the initial treatment that was intended; which is the replacement of the missing tooth.

Objective: Choose the time of implant placement during orthodontic treatment, seeking to shorten times and thus benefit the patient.

Method: A 20-year-old male patient is presented for evaluation for loss of space after an extraction of a lower first molar performed 2 years ago, he reported that it was extracted after a root canal treatment. Come in during your orthodontic treatment.

Result: The dental implant was placed during orthodontic treatment; shortening work times, for the benefit of the patient, since at the end of his orthodontic treatment he left with a rehabilitated implant.

Conclusion: The implant or implants necessary for the patient during orthodontic treatment can be placed and thus advance while they are osseointegrated, to later rehabilitate and finish both treatments at the same time; as long as you have the necessary spaces.
