When treatment planning for implant treatment is imperative that we not only assess the dental condition that requires treatment, but also the physics that will be involved in the case. Whether this is a single tooth or a full arch, the success long term relies heavily on making sure the forces that the implant and the peri-implant tissues are controlled. One major key to success is placing the implant in the best prosthetically guided position- never compromise this key point, it is critical that esthetic concerns do not outweigh factors used to promote successful osseointegration [1]. Implants are not teeth and should never be treated the same way (Figure 1). Without the advantages afforded by a pdl, the “ankylosed” implant cannot accommodate forces the same way as natural teeth. The bone surrounding the implant take the brunt of the forces that are absorbed by the pdl surrounding a natural tooth.
