Posterior Restorative Challenge.
I'd like to present an interesting case for discussion.
26.y.o. female is at finishing stage of her ortho tx.
She presented to my practice with the desire to replace the upper missing molars.
The restorative space is only 2mm vertically, 14mm M-D
bone is measured 5mm vertical and 18mm BL!!
The orthodontist wants me to place an implant and to restore before removing the braces for stabilization purposes.
What would you do?
