The technology of the Strategic Implant® facilitates dental implant treatment almost regardless of the available bone. This explains its increasing use to resolve problems with the dentition of the middle-aged patient in a radical manner, simply by extracting the residual dentition and placing implants. While a radical change in the implant treatment paradigm has taken place in some countries, in other countries, dentists try hard to keep their work area free of implants or to deliver them only as a last resort. Liberating patients from the burdens of their own teeth are not advocated by dental universities, as their main field of teaching deals with the repair of teeth and conventional ways of replacing them. This case report shows a standard treatment with Strategic Implants®, discussing the topic from the point of view of practitioners, universities, and other parties involved in decision-making. The authors conclude that the interests of the patients are not respected in many cases because the parties involved have vested interests in other treatment modalities.
