Treatment guidelines

Placement of implants - Angulation

Key points

  • Treatment with properly angulated implants compensates for the pseudo-progeny in the edentulous mandible
  • Properly angulated implants overcome clinical situations with minimal posterior bone support in the edentulous lower jaw
  • Use of angulated implants reduces the need for ridge augmentation
  • Use of angulated implants allows for a fixed prosthodontic rehabilitation in the edentulous maxilla and mandible
