Ridge resorption results in loss of interdental papillae and creation of unesthetic black triangles. Root submergence technique instead maintains the natural attachment apparatus of the tooth in the pontic site, which in turn allows for complete preservation of the alveolar bone frame and assists in the creation of an esthetic result in adjacent multiple tooth replacement cases. This study reports a case of fractured nonvital tooth where root submergence procedure was carried out, which represents intact bone aiding in the esthetics and function of the prosthesis.
