Clinical Research of Immediate Restoration Implant with Mini-Implants in Edentulous Space
By: Huang JS, Zhao JJ, Liu Q, Liu TT
The purpose of this study was to investigate the clinical effective of immediate restoration with Osstem MS mini implant in the edentulous space of 5-6 mm.
Materials & Methods:
The sample consisted of 36 consecutively treated partially edentulous patients who had a total of 36 Osstem MS mini implants, which were 2.5 mm or 3.0 mm in diameter and placed in 5-6 mm gap. The chair-side-made or laboratorymade provisional crowns for implants were fabricated at the time of fixtures placed.
The final restorations were fabricated with gold alloy-fused-porcelain crown 3 to 5 months later. During the mean 21.3 months (12-37 months) follow-up time since fixtures placement, all implants were examined clinically and radiologically.
No implant failed before restoration. One implant led an adjacent tooth pulp necrosis after the implantation, but the natural tooth and implant were successfully retained by root canal therapy. 36 implants in 36 patients who were followed up were successful and their aesthetic results were satisfactory.
Immediate loaded implant with Osstem MS mini-implant has good clinical prosthetic effects in the edentulous space of 5-6mm.
