“All on short” prosthetic-implant supported rehabilitations
Short implants are increasing their popularity among clinicians who want to fulfill the constant demanding of fixed prosthetic solutions in edentulous jaws.

Tgis case report differs from the current technique All-on-Four, which uses four implants in the mandible to support over-denture prosthesis, assuring a very promising clinical result.

The aim of this report, published in oral & implantology is to propose a new possibility to project and realize an occlusal guided implant cross-arch prosthesis supported by ultra-short implants. The authors describe the method in an edentulous mandible case report.

A 61-year-old female patient presented with edentulous posterior inferior jaw and periodontitis and periimplantitis processes in the anterior mandible. The remaining tooth and the affected implant were removed. Six 4-mm-long implants were placed to support a cross-arch metal-resin prosthesis.

At 1-year follow-up clinical and radiological assessment showed a good osseointegration of the fixtures and the patient was satisfied with the prosthesis solution. The method, even if it requires further validation, seems to be a valid aid in solving lower edentulous clinical cases, and appears less complex and with more indications of other proposals presented in the current clinical literature.
