Reduced Diameter Implants

Reduced diameter implants have been developed to address the clinical problems of reduced prosthetic space, the need to replace teeth of small dimensions, and for sites with diminished bone volume. Even so and in any given case, the use of reduced diameter implants should be based on a prosthodontically driven plan. This Learning Pathway discusses clinical indications, materials used for manufacture and clinical outcomes and offers examples of use in clinical cases.

On completion of this Learning Pathway you should be able to...

  • cite evidence for clinical outcomes with reduced diameter implants based on the most recent ITI Consensus Conference
  • describe materials used for the manufacture of reduced diameter implants, including new and traditional materials
  • discuss clinical indications for reduced diameter implants in different clinical situations
