Effect of Placing the Implant Crown on the Implant on the Same Day as the Implant vs. 4 Weeks Later.

2020-03-27 03:25:31 | BioPortfolio


In this study, participants with one lower first molar that require removal and replacement using dental implants will be enrolled. The implant will be inserted 12-16 weeks after tooth extraction and restored either immediately with an artificial tooth (fixed implant crown) in 50% of the cases or 4 weeks later in the remainder 50%. Immediate and early loading will be compared and the investigators expect no difference in terms of implant success and health of the tissue around the implant.



Dental implants placed between 12 and 16 weeks after tooth loss are a well-documented treatment option. Placing the artificial tooth (implant crown) on the implant the same day (immediate loading) or approximately 4 weeks after implant placement (early loading) are also treatment options with good scientific documentation. Computer-assisted implant surgery (sCAIS) and modern implant materials/surfaces increase treatment predictability and success in this context.

Clinical relevance

The timing of implant placement post-extraction and subsequent implant loading cannot be separated in modern implant therapy any longer. At the "Sixth ITI Consensus Conference" in Amsterdam, it was concluded that the clinical evidence and documentation of early implant placement combined with immediate or early implant loading in partially edentulous patients is currently insufficiently documented. However, this treatment protocol seems to be widely applied in daily practice. The planned study is designed to provide evidence for the application of early implant placement with partial bone-healing and either an immediate or an early loading protocol.

Hypothesis/Specific aims

H0: "Early placed single tooth implants by means of static computer-assisted implant surgery (sCAIS) in mandibular first molar sites with immediately loaded provisionals, show a survival rate comparable to early placed implants with an early loading protocol." Secondary parameters to be evaluated will be the prosthetic survival/ success, patient-centered outcomes (PROs), clinical peri-implant conditions, bone-level changes, alteration of peri-implant soft-tissue dimensions and the accuracy of digital implant planning.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Endosseous dental implantation where implants are fitted with an abutment or where an implant with a transmucosal coronal portion is used immediately (within 1 week) after the initial extraction. Conventionally, the implantation is performed in two stages with more than two months in between the stages.


Techniques and routines designed to prevent or reverse unwanted effects of weightlessness experienced during actual and simulated space flight, including physiologic changes related to removal of gravitational loading. Specific measures include creation of artificial gravity, exercise, low-level lower body negative pressure, and use of anti-deconditioning devices.

The most posterior teeth on either side of the jaw, totaling eight in the deciduous dentition (2 on each side, upper and lower), and usually 12 in the permanent dentition (three on each side, upper and lower). They are grinding teeth, having large crowns and broad chewing surfaces. (Jablonski, Dictionary of Dentistry, 1992, p821)
