After that, a ct-scan was performed to determine the size of the implant that matches the size of the available bone. The second visit, carried out the edentulous 36 implantation process using implants measuring 3.7mm in diameter and 12 mm in length with the EZ Dent-I IDI brand. Third visit, tooth color selection wih shade guide, and preparation of the palatal part of abutment teeth 12 and 21 was made for bridge adhesive in edentulous teeth 11. Two months later, double impression was performed for the manufacture of supra structural teeth .

Results : The advantage of dental implants is that they closely resemble natural teeth because they are embedded in the tissue so they can support aesthetics, protection of adjacent teeth and the development of self-confidence. Bone density obtained from Ct-Scan radiographic greatly determines this treatment choice, the higher the bone density, the better the prognosis produced.
