I am a general dentist just beginning to place implants. My patient was planned for a mandibular implant retained overdenture. Recently, I placed 4 regular implants (3.6mm X 10mm) on the atrophic mandible and realized the implants looked rather deep. I have read that mandibular fractures are a potential complication in such cases. However, if this does not occur during the surgery, will it occur in the future? Do you recommend any treatment? When should I load these implants? Would deeply appreciate if I can get some comments on this case please. Thank you
