Implants placed in narrow alveolar ridges and regions with soft bone quality are always associated with advanced surgical skills and present challenges in daily practice. This presentation will feature alternative methods improving the peri-implant bone density and managing clinical conditions in compromised amount of bone using implant designs with high primary stability. Therapeutic protocols will be presented in conjunction with narrow diameter implants in order to avoid bone grafting techniques and improving esthetics with long-term success.

Learning Objectives:  At completion of this presentaiton, participants should be able to:

1. Demonstrate the management of narrow alveolar ridges
2. Present surgical and prosthetic protocols with narrow diameter implants
3. Show characteristic implant designs and diameters as alternative to conventional diameter implants providing long-term success
