Course Overview

This lecture will present the technique for the restoration of single tooth implants with integrated abutment crowns as well as the results of a retrospective evaluation of this restoration. The effect of increased crown to implant ratio on single tooth implants will be discussed as well as the findings from several studies in the subject. The local and systemic factors that have been associated with crestal bone stability and bone gain around single-tooth implants will be presented. These factors include the daily intake of commonly used medications. The rationale for the use of short implants and advantages over conventional implants as well as a literature review on the effect of forces in peri-implant bone will be presented. The findings of a retrospective study on the survival of Ultrashort implants will also be presented.


At the end of this course the participants will be able to:
• Have a better understanding on the rationale for the use of short implants
• Understand literature review and retrospective studies regarding short implants
