Connecting a maxillary posterior implant to a posterior natural premolar: mainstream technique?

Last Updated February 13, 2013

I have a patient who wants to have an implant installed in # 3 site [maxillary right first molar; 16]. He then wants a bridge from the implant in #3 site to tooth # 5 [maxillary right first premolar; 14]. Is this a mainstream technique, connecting a maxillary posterior implant to a posterior natural premolar? What is the chance of success? what complications should I expect? Would it be better to replace #4 [maxillary right second premolar; 14] with another implant?
