Ramsey Amin Reviews Long Vs. Short Dental Implant Concepts

What is better? Long or short dental implants? There are a lot of different views on this topic especially in the last few years where the trend is to place shorter implants and the less of them.

Do you want your house to be built with just the minimum number of support beams? If you use the minimum number of support beams would you placed them deeply in the ground or is shallow placement okay?

In this video I describe the concept of long versus short dental implants. I also touch on soft versus hard bone and the biomechanic interplay between all of this. I have placed thousands of dental implants. Nowadays it seems that I am having to remove many implants that are not doing so well. Perhaps using a different dental implant concept may have prevented the early loss.

Nature gives us a lot of roots… Especially on the upper jaw.
