This case report discusses the immediate placement of 3 mini dental implants into 3 fresh extraction sockets. The implants were used to support a splinted fixed partial denture. Immediately placing implants of a very small diameter into fresh extraction sockets to support a fixed partial denture is possible. Some implant sites cannot accept standard-sized implants because of length or width deficiencies. Very small diameter implants may be able to support fixed prostheses in these sites.
