After years of edentulism, the bone volume gets reduced significantly in width, length and height. So for placement of standard size implants, we have to perform augmentation of the edentulous site, which is time consume and relatively expensive. Hence in these cases we can opt for relatively smaller diameter implants @2-3 mm. A 48 years old lady reported with complaint of poor esthetics due to missing upper front teeth. On examination, her upper central incisors were missing. Implant supported metal ceramic crowns splinted to each other were placed in this patient.
