This case report describes the immediate loading of narrow diameter implants in the mandibular incisor area using full-digital flow. The 3-dimensional position of the implants was planned using digital software, and the corresponding surgical template was fabricated. The implants were inserted immediately after extraction and on the same day, the interim abutment and bridge were placed. At 8 weeks after surgery, the stability of the implants was measured and a digital impression was made using a scan body. Customized titanium abutments and a cementtype full zirconia bridge were delivered. At 36 weeks’ follow-up, no clinical or radiographic complications were detected, and the patient was satisfied with the results.
