Treatment options when there is room for only one implant?

Case Posted by: Derek Gatta DMD MS FACP
Learn more at: this situation, the patient had two primary teeth in the anterior mandible that had a poor five year prognosis. The two teeth were extracted and I decided to place one NP Nobel implant and cantilever the restoration. I only had room for one NP implant. Would you treat the same way, or place the one implant in the embrasure, try to place two even smaller mini-implants or prepare the adjacent canines for a fixed dental prosthesis?
