Study on OsseoSpeed™ Implants in Patients Missing 2-5 Teeth in the Posterior Lower Jaw, Restored With Permanent Teeth Attached 6-7 Weeks Later

This study has been completed.

The purpose of the study is to evaluate Astra Tech Dental Implant System, Fixture Osseospeed™, in patients with tooth loss in the posterior mandible in an early loading protocol. Primary objectives are implant stability, marginal bone adaptation and survival rate.

Condition Intervention
Jaw, Edentulous, Partially
Device: OsseoSpeed™

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Non-Randomized
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: Open Label
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: An Open, Prospective Study to Evaluate Implant Stability, Marginal Bone Adaptation and the Survival Rate of Astra Tech Dental Implant System, Fixture Osseospeed™, in Patients With Tooth Loss in the Posterior Mandible in an Early 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 will be considered a failure effective from the date of removal. The survival rate for individual implants will be analyzed at each visit. Cumulative implant survival rate will be calculated using Kaplan-Meier life-table estimation and reported as percentage of survived implants.

  • Implant Stability [ Time Frame: At 1 year follow-up ]
    Implant stability will be evaluated using Resonance Frequency Analysis (RFA). The RFA value is automatically translated into an Implant Stability Quotient index (ISQ), which runs from 1 to 100.

  • Marginal Bone Adaptation [ Time Frame: At 5 year follow-up ]
    Marginal bone adaptation will be expressed as the distance from the implant reference point to the most coronal bone-to-implant contact on the mesial and distal side of the implant. Bone adaptation in millimeters at follow-up visit will be compared to values obtained Baseline (loading). Positive value indicates bone gain and negative value bone loss.

Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Provision of written informed consent
  • 18 years of age and over
  • Edentulous in the posterior mandible, Kennedy class I or class II. Last natural tooth, or previously restored implant in function is canine or first bicuspid.

  • Current need for pre-surgical bone or soft tissue augmentation in the planned implant area.
  • History of pre-surgical bone or soft tissue augmentation, within12 months, in the planned implant area.
  • Any systemic or local disease or condition that would compromise post-operative healing and/or osseointegration
  • Need for systemic corticosteroids or any other medication that would compromise post-operative healing and/or osseointegration
  • Present alcohol or drug abuse
  • Unable or unwilling to return for follow-up visits for a period of 5 years
  • Current use of smoking tobacco
  • Pregnancy or lactation at the time of enrollment
