First received: July 7, 2008
Last updated: July 4, 2014
Last verified: May 2014
The purpose of the study is to evaluate ASTRA TECH Implant System, OsseoSpeed™ implants, in patients with totally edentulous upper jaws and poor bone quality and quantity, when provisional artificial teeth are attached within 24 hours. The primary objective is to investigate implant survival rate.

Condition Intervention
Jaw, Edentulous
Device: ASTRA TECH Implant System, OsseoSpeed™, all dimensions.

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: Open Label
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: An Open, Prospective, Multicenter Study to Evaluate the Outcome of ASTRA TECH Implant System, OsseoSpeed™ Implants, in Patients With Totally Edentulous Maxillas and Poor Bone Quality and Quantity in an Immediate Loading Protocol.

Further study details as provided by Dentsply Sirona Implants:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Implant Survival Rate [ Time Frame: At 5-year follow-up ]
    An implant that has failed to osseointegrate, lost its osseointegration or fractured was considered a failure effective from the date of removal. The survival rate for individual implants was analyzed at each visit. Cumulative implant survival rate was calculated using Kaplan-Meier life-table estimation and reported as percentage of survived implants.

Enrollment: 51
Study Start Date: May 2005
Study Completion Date: March 2012
Primary Completion Date: March 2012 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: OsseoSpeed Device: ASTRA TECH Implant System, OsseoSpeed™, all dimensions.
