Treatment of Narrow Edentulous Spaces



Treatment of Narrow Edentulous Spaces

Dive into the cutting-edge protocol featured in a recent peer-reviewed case report by the Academy of General Dentistry’s Florida Focus journal.

This case report demonstrates how the advents of ultra-narrow implants and surgical guides revolutionize care for patients with narrow edentulous spaces.

Case Overview

Ultra-narrow implants have become a hot topic in the dental field. Their rise in popularity stems from their potential to transform care in patients indicated for implant placement in smaller edentulous spaces – a task that has long posed challenges due to limited bone width.

With a diameter of around 2.75 mm, ultra-narrow implants offer a viable solution for these challenging cases. However, their placement demands precision and expertise. This is where static surgical guides prove invaluable.

These guides, designed based on detailed 3D imaging of the patient’s oral anatomy, provide a roadmap for the precise placement of ultra-narrow implants. They eliminate guesswork, reduce the risk of complications, and ultimately lead to more predictable and successful outcomes.
