Primary Outcome Measures:
  • primary stability countertorque measures [ Time Frame: 4 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    resistance to countertorque measures showing primary stability success of implants

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • cumulative success rate [ Time Frame: 1 year ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Crestal bone regression (amount of bone loss measured) and equivalence in integration success (implant mobility)

Study Start Date: December 2010
Estimated Study Completion Date: December 2016
Estimated Primary Completion Date: July 2016 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: High torque insertion
High torque insertion
Procedure: High torque insertion
Osseotite implant placed with high insertion torque forces
Other Name: Osseotite endosseous dental implant
Active Comparator: Low torque insertion
Low torque insertion
Procedure: Low torque insertion
Osseotite implant placed with low insertion torque forces
Other Name: Osseotite endosseous dental implant

Detailed Description:
Osseotite implants will be placed using the standard lower insertion torque forces and compared to implants placed using higher insertion torque forces.
