Short Implants in place of large augmentation

A patient who declines a large augmentation but would still like to have Dental Implants can still be treated effectively with short implants.

Sometimes patients have a fear of sinus augmentation for upper reconstruction or a fear of the post op morbidity associated with a large block graft for a lower jaw or upper jaw reconstruction, these patients may present with just enough soft and hard tissue for a short implant reconstruction.

Research shows that short implants are quite effective in the appropriate patient population. Short implants are just as effective as long implants in the ideal conditions At the Dental Boutique we believe that aesthetics is not the service of vanities and fashion but the service of the identity of the person, it's the service of the self image and self esteem.
