Inadequate Inter-Arch Space: How Do I Fix This?

Last Updated June 28, 2010

Dr. KSC asks:
I placed XIve 3.4x13mm [Dentsply] implants in #22 [mandibular left canine; 33] and #27 [mandibular right canine; 43] sites. Patient is missing #22-27 [mandibular left canine to mandibular right canine; 33-43]. Healing and osseointegration were unremarkable. When I placed the abutments I found that I had inadequate inter-arch space for an ideal fixed partial denture restoration. What can I do at this point to create more inter-arch space?
