- InterventionsIn all subjects four implant (Straumann Standard dental implant, Institut Straumann AG, Basel, Switzerland) are placed by means of a conventional installation procedure in local anesthesia. The use of this 4mm implant in this indication (in combination with a longer implant) is within the indications recommended by the producer en therefore not experimental (figure 2 and 3).
- Primary outcome-Marginal bone levels (MBL) are determined from standardized, long cone intraoral radiographs by measuring from the edge of the abutment to the bone-to-implant contact, both mesially and distally.
- Secondary outcome-Probing pocket depth (PPD) and bleeding on probing (BOP): Probing the implant is performed at 2 sites per implant (mid-buccal and mesial). A plastic periodontal probe with 0.25 N of calibrated probing force is used (Click-probe®, KerrHawe, Bioggio, Switzerland). PPD is measured in millimetres from the mucosal margin to the clinical pocket. BOP is noted as absent (score=0) or present (score=1). Mean values per implant are calculated for all variables (meanPPD, meanBOP).
-Marginal soft tissue recession (REC) is measured in millimetres from the edge of the healing abutment to the mucosal margin. Mean values per implant are calculated (meanREC)
-Implant Survival (IS), defined as the presence of the implant at any moment of observation is also noted.
-Maintenance: Detailed post-insertion maintenance and restorative complications and revisions are reported by means of chart review. Mechanical complications are analyzed.

- Brief summaryRationale: Dental implant placement requires a minimal amount of available alveolar bone volume, both in terms of bone width as in height. If this is lacking, traditionally regular sized implants are placed after vertical augmentation of the jaw. Such treatment is relatively invasive with subsequent morbidity. More recently, a switch has been made to the use of short implant, circumventing the need for augmentation. The implants which become available to the market become increasingly shorter.
Objective: The aim of this study to evaluate the clinical performance and implant survival statistics of short implants (4 mm in length) in combination with a longer implant in the severy resorbed posterior mandible of partially edentulous patients that will be restored with a 3-unit fixed dental prosthesis (FDP).
Study design: Study population: A prospective case series. The study population will consist of 15 healthy human volunteers with an indication for fixed implant treatment in the severely resorbed lateral parts of the mandible and a relative contraindication for bone augmentation. Subjects are 18 years and older and wear a full arch denture in the opposing jaw.
Intervention (if applicable): At each side of the partially edentulous mandible, two implants will be placed: one implant with a length of 4 mm in the posterior region of the mandible in combination with a longer implant in the premolar region (Straumann Standard Implant, RN, Institut Straumann AG, Basel, Switzerland). After a period of submerged healing for three months the implants are uncovered and a screw-retained 3-unit FDP will be placed on both sides of the mandibula.
Main study parameters/endpoints: Mean marginal bone loss, clinical performance, implant survival.
Secondary study parameters/endpoints: Patient satisfaction (OHIP-NL 49, VAS-Score).
