The replacement of back teeth can be complicated by loss of alveolar bone height which often accompanies tooth loss. This is made more challenging by the proximity of the back teeth to anatomic structures and the heavy chewing forces during normal function.
Bone grafting procedures to compensate for the lack of bone height have proved to be successful in providing sufficient bone quantity and quality for dental implant placement. Some individuals may however be unsuitable or unwilling to proceed with bone grafting due to the increased cost, risks or additional surgery and healing time. Short dental implants is a viable alternative for such individuals.
