The patient is a 50 year-old female. She is edentulous in the upper left maxillary lateral incisor region (no. 10). For esthetic as well as functional reasons, she wants that area reconstructed. A CBCT scan was taken. The treatment plan was an implant and cemented crown. Subsequently, a 3.5 x 10mm Zuga implant with a sealing cap was placed. No temporary was used as the patient had that edentulous areas for several years. The medical history was essentially negative and non-contributory (Fig. 1-8).
