Most of the steps and rules are to ensure you can achieve a nice emergence profile. The biggest mistake that one can not come back from is placing the implant too shallow.

Rules of Six

  • 6 mm inter-radicular (5mm)
  • 6 mm B-L bone (5mm)
  • 6mm min length (use 8mm)
  • 6mm occlusal space (5mm screw)
  • 6mm contact to bone (5mm to guarantee)
  • 3mm apical and 2mm lingual to planned gingival zenith
