Implant placement on maxillary posterior region has some limitations because of limited bone height, low bone density, and anatomical consideration involving the floor of the maxillary sinus. A 56-year-old male with a history of hypertension and stroke, consulted for edentulous in teeth 25 and 26 with limited bone height. A short implant for 26 (Ø 4.8 mm; 4 mm) and 25 (Ø 4.1 mm; 10 mm) were placed and splint crown was performed after 6 months.
