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).

The mesial crestal defect has been repaired 4.5 months postop (Fig.7 *), while there is mild distal bone loss, probably due to pressure when the implant is placed (Fig.3). 

No Crestal Bone Resorption Expected Last Next
