Abstract: A prosthetically-driven approach for dental implant placement offers the most predictable means of achieving a biologically stable and aesthetic implant-supported restoration. Optimal dental implant placement may be limited by local factors and complicate the prosthetic reconstruction. This article aims to offer guidance on the surgical and prosthetic options available to manage suboptimally-positioned dental implants.

Clinical relevance: This article is relevant to dental clinicians placing and restoring dental implants, and those who are considering them in treatment planning.
