Implant overload: do I need to worry?

Last Updated September 04, 2019

I recently placed a 4.3mm diameter RP [Regular Platform] implant in #30 site [mandibular left first molar; 36] . There is a 10mm mesiodistal width between #20 and 18 [the second premolar and the first molar; 35, 37]. If I replace the first molar with a crown extending the entire mesiodistal distance, do I need to worry about occlusal overload on the implant? I probably should have used a 5mm diameter Wide Platform implant. Have any of you used a 4.3mm RP implant in this site? What was your experience?
