  Purpose

Dental implants are a valid and reliable method to replace missing teeth. The major requirement for their success is an adequate volume of bone into which they can be placed. One widely used method to augment bone at the time of placing the implant is to use a bone substitute rather than taking a block bone graft from the patient. Successful augmentation in the vertical direction has often proved difficult, however, the investigators have developed a technique to achieve this in the investigators patients using a synthetic bone substitute, Osteon (Implantium, CE0120) in an attempt to avoid patients having to undergo another unnecessary surgical procedure.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • The success of dental implants in alveolar bone augmented in the vertical direction with Osteon [ Time Frame: 3 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    The implants will be deemed successful at each time point if the radiographic bone level remains at 2 mm above the level of the implant, i.e. at the same height as when placed. Given that we know precisely the dimensions of the abutments placed in the implant, this provides the necessary calibration in order to undertake this assessment. If the bone level is lost, the procedure will be deemed to have failed.
