Abstract

OBJECTIVES:

The objective of this study was to evaluate the peri-implant's hard and soft tissue response associated with the 1-stage, nonsubmerged, endosseous dental implant.

STUDY DESIGN:

A multicenter retrospective clinical evaluation was performed on 339 nonsubmerged implants placed in 108 patients at 5 clinical centers between January 2003 and December 2007.

RESULTS:

After a mean follow-up period of 30 months, the mean crestal bone resorption in 339 implants was 0.43 mm. The survival and success rates were observed to be 99.1% and 95.1%, respectively. The mean calculus, inflammatory, and plaque indices were 0.13, 0.37, and 0.73, respectively, and the mean width of buccal keratinized mucosa was observed to be 2.43 mm.

CONCLUSION:

The short- to intermediate-term evaluation of the 1-stage, nonsubmerged, endosseous implant yields relatively high survival and success rates.
