Background: The purpose of this study is to analyze the advantages of the conometric connection and of the monophasic implants in the esthetic area. This work, according to the authors, helps the clinician to achieve excellent results on soft tissue by knowing and avoiding the pumping effect. Methods: In this study, ten titanium implants of Immediateload SA-CH have been introduced instead of teeth in the upper and lower frontal area, (extracted because of infection or agenesis) with 1 year of follow-up with perfect healing of the interincisive papilla. Results: Thanks to the results achieved, that is osteointegration, minimal crestal bone resorption, good interincisive papilla maintained in the esthetic zone, it is clear how the conometric connection and the monophasic implant are an excellent prosthetic solution minimizing the effects of flat-to-flat connections. Conclusion: From the observed results, it has been highlighted that Immediateload Company appears to have two perfect solutions (conometric connection and monophasic fixture) to be used in esthetic area like lateral upper incisors.
