Since its introduction in the late 1990s, immediate implant loading concepts (IL) have become a frequent alternative for delayed implant procedures. IL concepts reduce chair time, the number of surgical interventions and pain, and offer instant comfort to the patient. Its reduced treatment time results in obvious socioeconomic advantages. Although there is at present abundant evidence that supports IL, evaluation of long-term biological and mechanical stability outcomes of large patient populations could allow quality improvement and more accurate patient selection. The Departments of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery and the Department of Dentistry of the General Hospital Saint-John Bruges act as one of the pioneers of IL in Belgium, routinely performing the concept since 2001.
The investigators aim to evaluate the biological and mechanical short- and long-term outcome of IL in partially or completely edentulous patients. Moreover, the investigators aim to detect potential influencing risk factors predicting undesirable prosthetic outcome.

The purpose of this study is to investigate to what extent IOs improve the functionality of edentulous patients and changes in quality of life and overall patient satisfaction following tr...
Multicenter study evaluating ANKYLOS C/X 6.6 mm short implants in the edentulous maxilla.
Osseointegrated root form implants have been applied successfully in treating fully and partially edentulous patients and patients with single tooth missing. However, the success rate of o...
Until now, only a few studies have compared the ability of different intraoral scanners (IOS) to capture high-quality impressions in patients with dental implants. Hence, the aim of this study was to ...
Edentulous patients benefit significantly from implant-supported overdenture prostheses. The purpose of this systematic review was to evaluate the cost-effectiveness of implant-supported overdentures ...
Telescopic crown attachments have been successfully used in completely and partially edentulous patients. This type of attachment provides retention, support, and stability with optimal hygiene for th...
This study aims to analyze the salivary peptidome/proteome of edentulous subject with respect to dentate control subjects.
The knowledge of the exact location of the mental foramen (MF) in dentate and edentulous mandibles is clinically important when constructing complete dentures, performing anaesthetic block of the lowe...
The total absence of teeth from either the mandible or the maxilla, but not both. Total absence of teeth from both is MOUTH, EDENTULOUS. Partial absence of teeth in either is JAW, EDENTULOUS, PARTIALLY.
Absence of teeth from a portion of the mandible and/or maxilla.
Total lack of teeth through disease or extraction.
