Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Cumulative Success Rate [ Time Frame: 3 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    An implant will be considered successful if it is immobile when tested at various study time point

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Crestal Bone Regression [ Time Frame: 3 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Differences in crestal bone levels obtained at various study time points will be compared between the two implant designs

Enrollment: 92
Study Start Date: November 2010
Estimated Study Completion Date: December 2016
Estimated Primary Completion Date: December 2016 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Osseotite Certain Tapered Prevail
Osseotite Certain Tapered Prevail design with platform switching feature
Device: Osseotite Certain Tapered Prevail
Osseotite implant with platform switching feature
Other Name: Osseotite endosseous dental implant
Active Comparator: Osseotite Certain Tapered
Osseotite Certain Tapered implant with non-platform switching design
Device: Osseotite Certain Tapered
Osseotite implant with non-platform switching feature
Other Name: Osseotite endosseous dental implant

Detailed Description:
The Osseotite Certain Prevail implant with its platform switch feature will demonstrate higher success rate than the non-platform Osseotite Certain implant
