Lateral part was immediately loaded with the combination of implant with natural tooth; this way was joined rehabilitation of 12 along with 13. The case showed the validity of implants combined with natural teeth, two elements of different resilience, a rigid component as the osseous-integrated implant and a less rigid component as the natural teeth, the natural tooth was considered as a potential mainstay.
