This observational, prospective clinical study evaluates the performance of the Certain Prevail implant system to show potential crestal bone and soft tissue preservation following the crestal bone. It will also evaluate implant performance.
Study (null) hypothesis: The preservation of crestal bone for the Certain Prevail implants will be the same as that for standard non-platform switched implants from contemporaneous studies (historical controls).
Primary Outcome Measures:
- Osseous Integration [ Time Frame: one year ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
Secondary Outcome Measures:
- Crestal Bone Resorption [ Time Frame: four years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

This is a prospective, observational study of patients with partial or complete edentulism treated with the Certain Prevail dental implants. Restorations will consist of single tooth replacements, short and long fixed bridges, and overdentures and full dentures. All implants are placed using a single stage approach and temporalization occurring after two months of healing (early loading). Each center will strive to enroll a total of 20 patients.
