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.

Further study details as provided by Research and Education in Dentistry:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • The success of dental implants in alveolar bone augmented in the vertical direction with Osteon [ Time Frame: 3 years ]
    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.

Estimated Enrollment: 100
Study Start Date: September 2010
Estimated Study Completion Date: September 2015
Estimated Primary Completion Date: September 2015 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Groups/Cohorts Assigned Interventions
Patients requiring dental implants with deficient alveolar bone height
Device: Osteon bone graft
Osteon bone substitute placed to a height of 2 mm above the top of the dental implant
Other Names:
  • Osteon
  • Hydroxyapatite coated with beta-tricalcium phosphate
  • 100% synthetic bone graft

Detailed Description:

Primary Objective

• To determine the success of dental implants in alveolar bone augmented in the vertical direction with Osteon.

Secondary Objectives • To determine the long term success of dental implants in this augmented bone.

Primary Endpoint

• Radiographically assessed vertical height of alveolar ridge formation following Osteon augmentation.
