Background immediate dental implant treatment is a well-established strategy. It preserves the bone and reduces treatment time. It also allows the preservation of the soft tissues as well as enables enhancement of the overall aesthetics. Technically, immediate placement of the implant is a challenging task and can be done by clinicians possessing extensive experience in implant dentistry, both prosthetically as well as surgically. Objectives This descriptive study aims to assess the frequency of immediate implants placed in the aesthetic zone of the maxilla and mandible about the site, gender, and age of a group of Iraqi patients. Materials and Methods This study has been carried out in the Modern Specialized Dental Clinic from January 2019 to March 2022. One hundred patients were included in this study with a total number of 372 implants. Bibliographic information as well as radiographic information taken at the time of implantation were taken from the center record for all patients involved in this study. Results female-to-male ratio in this study was 1.63:1. The highest percentage (38.3%) of implants was found in the female esthetic zone within the 41-50 age group. The most favorable side of implantation for the esthetic zone was found in the right maxilla (44%) for the same age group (41-50). Conclusions there is a female predilection for immediate implantation in the maxillary aesthetic zone, middle-aged females in particular.
