The maxillary lateral incisor epidemiologically represents the second most common congenitally absent teeth. In literature, different approaches have been proposed, such as canine teeth substitution, traditional prosthetic rehabilitation, adhesive restoration or single-tooth implant. The aim of this investigation was to evaluate the clinical and radiographical effectiveness of narrow single tooth implant treatment for missing maxillary lateral incisors. MATERIALS AND


A total of 11 subjects, in seven cases bilaterally, were treated in the Department of Medical, Oral and Biotechnological Sciences, University "G. D'Annunzio" of Chieti-Pescara, with a radiographical follow-up at 5 years from the loading.


At the follow up, no bone defects or pathological gingival probing were present around the peri-implant tissues. No mechanical complications, such as loss of the crown fixation screws or fracture, were reported.


Narrow implants represent a predictable optional treatment for maxillary lateral incisor restoration, with a high-level aesthetic and functional outcome of the rehabilitation.
