The successful use of different strategies involving tilted and short implants to restore edentulous patients with a resorbed alveolar ridge has increased in recent years. Tilted and short implants in the posterior region make it possible to maintain the right distance to critical anatomical structures and avoid the necessity of extensive augmentation procedures.
To help clinicians decide whether to employ these techniques, the ITI has released a position paper based on the latest scientific evidence that describes the indications, advantages and limitations of these treatment protocols in the edentulous jaw.
