My specialist and most implant manufactures say: to place at crest or above: so why would you even consider placing at crest or below.
What is a “tapered” implant? You think you may know, but the Marketing can make it confusing. Is the Implant tapered or the connection tapered? They are 2 completely different things with different pros and cons. This is discussed because it is the critical factor on placing above crest, at crest or below crest.
- What are the benefits?
