Description

In our daily implant practices we are often confronted with patients who meet the ideal criteria for implant treatment, but have a limited height of bone. Bone grafting may partially solve this issue, but bone grafting can be expensive, time-consuming, is always uncomfortable for the patient and can involve inherent risks. The use of short dental implants can often avoid the problems associated with bone grafts - but can it really be that simple? This course will show you the how's and why's of short implants.

Objectives

Objectives
Be able to define what a short implant is Understand why dental implants have been getting shorter over the years Understand the alternatives to using short implants, along with their pros and cons Appreciate when when short implants can be used safely, and when NOT to use a short implant Be able to discuss the current evidence for using short implants, both for and against Understand why crown:implant ratio does not affect implants in the same way as teeth Understand why a longer implant may not be a better implant after crestal bone loss Understand the relationship between bone loading and bone loss and know whether using a short implant will lead to crestal bone loss over time
