Replacing Mandibular Posterior Case: Best Treatment Plan?

Last Updated January 10, 2011

Dr. F asks:

Please see the case photos below. I am looking for some practical advice on how to treatment plan this case. The patient is a 58 year old male with no medical complications. My plan is to place two implants, one of 4.2/6.25 mm and one of 5/6.25 mm, then place two splinted crowns. I haven’t used util now small diameter implants and so don`t feel too confident. What do you think? I would like to get some recommendations on which diameter and length of implant fixtures that I should use and which definitive prosthesis will be better for the patient and will have greater longevity? Also would you recommend screw or cement retention?
