Clinical considerations of angled implants
University of Missouri, USA
Placement of an osseointegrated implant in an axial direction relative to the tooth it is replacing has historically been a basic goal of implant placement. However, angled implant placement does have its indications in prosthodontics. Although an angled implant placement may avoid or reduce the need for bone grafts, it may create prosthodontic challenges. A review of the angled implant concept and some clinical cases that received angled implants will be reviewed, and their management discussed.
