Study to Evaluate an Implant With a Sloped Top in Patients With a Sloped Jaw Bone
The study aims to evaluate maintenance of lingual/palatinal marginal bone with the (ASTRA TECH Implant System) OsseoSpeed™ Profile implant in sites where the alveolar crest anatomy is sloped in a lingual to buccal direction.
The hypothesis is that the sloped marginal contour of the implant will help preserve the lingual/palatinal marginal bone.

|Official Title:||A Prospective, Open, Single Arm, Multi-center Study to Evaluate Maintenance of Lingual Bone in Healed Ridges With the ASTRA TECH Implant System, OsseoSpeed™ Profile Implant. A 3-year Follow-up Study|
- Bone Level Changes at the Lingual Aspect From Implant Placement (Baseline) to 16 Weeks After Implant Placement [ Time Frame: At baseline and 16 weeks ]Clinical measurements after implant installation and after 16 weeks to determine bone levels at the buccal and lingual aspects in relation to a fixed landmark on the implant (the rim (R), i.e. the interface between the micro-threaded part and the shoulder at the marginal portion of the implants.The assessments were made using a periodontal probe and distances were measured to the nearest 0.5 mm. Negative value denotes loss of bone.
