I have a 28 year old patient in who wants to have missing #19 replaced [maxillary left first molar; 36]. Since the extraction was done more than a year prior to the visit, more than 50% of the bone volume was lost buccolingually. PMH is unremarkable. What do I start with on this type of case? What is the best implant diameter/length to use on this case? What do I tell the patient about the treatment time?
