Implant in Incisive Foramen?

Last Updated November 21, 2010

Dr. W. asks:
I have a female patient with severe maxillary anterior atrophy and she wants an overdenture. She has 3 remaining maxillary molars which will help to support the distribution of occlusal forces. She does not want any bone grafts. I am considering a treatment plan where I place 2 short implants in the #7 and 10 areas [maxillary right lateral incisor and left lateral incisor; 12, 22], plus 1 implant in the incisive foramen. I saw a presentation on placing implants in the incisive foramen technique at the AAID [American Academy of Implant Dentistry] 2 years ago. Have any of you done this and is there an adequate pool of literature to support the use of this procedure?
