Maxillary Overdenture: Ideal Location for the Four Implants?

Last Updated September 19, 2011

Dr. S. asks:

I have treatment planned a patient for a maxillary overdenture retained by four dental implants. What are the ideal locations for installing the implants? I was thinking that the sites that would provide the most retention would be #3,6, 11 and 14 [maxillary right first molar, right canine, left canine and left first molar; 16, 13, 23, 26]. I have seen these sites recommended in textbooks and in lectures. Is this correct?
