A 3x14 (2) mm one piece implant is placed with insertion torque 35 Ncm (Fig.3); there is no contact of the implant with the mesial crestal bone (*, no pressure or tension, probably no resorption later on).

An immediate provisional is fabricated (Fig.4 P); mixture of allograft and Osteogen (a synthetic bone) is placed in the mesiobuccal socket (gap: *) of the 1 piece implant.  The gingival recession is the most severe at the implant site when the implant is just placed.  In fact the gingival margin grows postop.

No Crestal Bone Resorption Expected Last Next
