During the past decades, implant treatment has been a successful option for tooth replacement. After tooth loss, however, severely atrophic residual alveolar ridges are quite common, especially in patients who have been edentulous for a longer period of time. Posterior areas of the maxilla and mandible are areas of greater anatomical constraints. Lots of research and advances have occurred in field of Oral Implantology and short dental implants are one of them. But success rates for these short dental implants were also considered dubious. Most important factor that was to be considered was crown-implant ratio. Over the period of time and with improvisation of implant designs, even short dental implants have provided predictable results. The purpose of this case report is to reveal success journey of short dental implants.
