Study Comparing OsseoSpeed™ Implants of Two Different Lengths in the Upper and Lower Posterior Jaw

This study has been completed.

Dentsply Sirona Implants Identifier:
First received: October 16, 2007
Last updated: September 15, 2016
Last verified: September 2016
The purpose of this study is to see if OsseoSpeed™ implant 6 mm long is effective for rehabilitation of edentulism and if so, how it compares with OsseoSpeed™ implant 11 mm long. The primary hypothesis is that the alteration in bone level is equal in patients randomized to 6 mm as to patients randomized to 11 mm implants.

Condition Intervention
Jaw, Edentulous, Partially Device: OsseoSpeed™

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Open Label
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: An Open, Prospective, Randomized, Multi-center Study Comparing OsseoSpeed™ Implant 6 mm With OsseoSpeed™ Implant 11 mm in the Posterior Maxilla and Mandible. A 5-year Follow-up Study.

Further study details as provided by Dentsply Sirona Implants:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Radiological assessments of marginal bone level alteration [ Time Frame: On a regular basis during 5 years follow-up ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:

Study Start Date: November 2007
Primary Completion Date: May 2016 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: 1 Device: OsseoSpeed™
