The effect of buccolingual staggered implant placement on stress distribution within the supporting structure was examined photoelastically. Two photoelastic models of a human mandible, edentulous distal to the canine, were fabricated. Three screw-type implants were embedded into the edentulous region of each model. The implants were placed in a straight line in one model and in a buccolingual staggered configuration in the other. Vertical and lateral loads were applied to a fixed partial denture superstructure. No clear biomechanical advantage to a staggered 1.5 mm buccal and lingual offset placement configuration was observed. (Int J Periodontics Restorative Dent 2004;24:4755.)
