Online Article: The Long-Term Evaluation of Two-Unit Fixed Partial Dentures on Short, Threaded Implants: Delayed Versus Immediate Loading
Perelli, Michele / Abundo, Roberto / Corrente, Giuseppe / Saccone, Carlo / Sarmiento, Hector / Chang, Yu Cheng / Fiorellini, Joseph P.
Placement of short implants is a common approach to rehabilitate edentulous areas. The objective of this study was to evaluate the long-term survival of 7.0- and 8.5-mm implants placed in either a delayed or immediate loading protocol. Life table analysis revealed the implants treated with the delayed loading protocol had a 90.9% survival rate and the implants treated with the immediate loading protocol had a survival rate of 92.0%. The results of this 8-year prospective study demonstrate similar survival rates of short, cylindrical threaded implants placed by either a delayed or immediate loading protocol.
