Prospective, single cohort, multi-center study evaluating the TREFOIL concept for the treatment of edentulous or patients with failing mandibular dentition over 5 years. 90 patients (15 per centre) will be included. The subject population is at least 18 years old, in need of an implant restored full prosthesis providing sufficient bone in the interforaminal where a fixed restoration on three implants is regarded as an appropriate treatment solution. The components are TREFOIL treatment concept (implants and framework).
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment, Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Treatment

Surgical and restorative procedures in the posterior region of both the mandible and the maxilla present a complex task. The posterior regions usually exhibit less favorable bone quality a...
This prospective randomized study will evaluate the integration success while supporting a prosthesis for short implants placed into maxillary sites having minimal bone height that would o...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate survival and success rates of dental implants placed with immediate loading protocol in extraction sockets. All patients were monitored for 1 year ...
The purpose of this study is to investigate the clinical efficacy of Osseospeed™ TX 6 mm implants in a Chinese population by evaluation of marginal bone level alteration, implant stabili...
Atrophic ridge augmentation utilizing guided bone regeneration (GBR) has become a major treatment option to provide optimal bone support for osseointegrated dental implants. GBR was initia...
There is paucity of the studies that assess the outcomes of short dental implants with a follow-up time higher than 10 years. This study aims to evaluate the long-term (15 years) survival and marginal...
Immediate dental implant loading has been investigated with favorable results. However, short implants have not been investigated in this treatment option. This study compared the clinical outcomes an...
The impact of osteoporosis on implant treatment is still a matter of debate in the scientific community, as it may possibly lead to higher failure rates. As long-term controlled trials are missing, th...
The rate of dental implant failures ranges from 3% to 8%, with that number increasing as the number of implants placed increases. When an implant fails, the survival rate drops significantly when a se...
To compare clinical and radiographic outcomes of dental implants with different neck characteristics.
The probability distribution associated with two mutually exclusive outcomes; used to model cumulative incidence rates and prevalence rates. The Bernoulli distribution is a special case of binomial distribution.
A 60 amino acid (6.5 kDa) trefoil factor that contains a single trefoil domain. It is expressed primarily by surface EPITHELIAL CELLS of the GASTRIC MUCOSA, where it associates with MUCIN 5AC.
A family of small peptides expressed primarily by MUCOUS MEMBRANE EPITHELIAL CELLS in vertebrates. Their structure is highly conserved and is defined by a three-leaved (trefoil) domain of 42 or 43 amino acids; it includes six cysteines that create the trefoil structure through disulfide bridges. Trefoil peptides may form dimers with each other, or associate with MUCINS and other factors. They are important for maintaining epithelial integrity and for protection from noxious agents.
A 59 amino acid (6.6 kDa) trefoil factor that contains a single trefoil domain. It is expressed in all tissues with MUCOUS MEMBRANES, including GOBLET CELLS of the SMALL INTESTINE and LARGE INTESTINE. It associates with MUCIN-2 in the small intestine and may regulate epithelial CELL MIGRATION and WOUND HEALING.
A 106 amino acid (12 kDa) trefoil factor that contains two trefoil domains and associates with MUCIN-6. It is expressed in the GASTROINTESTINAL TRACT by cells of BRUNNER GLANDS; PYLORIC GLANDS and mucous neck cells. It inhibits GASTROINTESTINAL MOTILITY and GASTRIC ACID secretion and may help maintain the structural integrity of gastric mucus.
Arthroplasty is a surgical procedure to restore the integrity and function of a joint. A joint can be restored by resurfacing the bones. An artificial joint (called a prosthesis) may also be used. Various types of arthritis may affect the joints. Osteo...
Osteoporosis is a disease in which the bones become extremely porous, are subject to fracture, and heal slowly, occurring especially in women following menopause and often leading to curvature of the spine from vertebral collapse. Follow and track&n...
