A fully tapered implant was recently introduced to increase primary stability and to be used in challenging situations. Twenty single implants were inserted in maxillary postextraction sockets, from premolar to premolar, and immediately restored. Marginal bone level (MBL) and probing depth (PD) were evaluated over a 12-month follow-up period. All implants osseointegrated, achieving a success rate of 100%. The difference in MBL between implant placement and 1 year later was 0.20 0.04 mm, while PD was 2.82 0.51 mm at 1 year. The data reported here support the use of a fully tapered implant for immediate placement and immediate provisionalization for single-tooth replacements in the esthetic area.
