Osseointegrated Implants in the Treatment of Partially Edentulous Patients: A Preliminary Study on 876 Consecutively Placed Fixtures

Torsten Jemt, DDS, PhD/Ulf Lekholm, DDS, PhD/Ragnar Adell, DDS, PhD

PMID: 2700745

A total of 876 consecutively placed fixtures ad modum Brånemark was followed in 268 partially edentulous jaws of 244 patients treated between April 1968 and the end of December 1988. A total of 24 of 712 fixtures exposed at the abutment connection was lost (3%); the continuous prosthesis stability rate was 98.7%, as only four of 293 prostheses were removed. The results of the study indicate the possibility for the Brånemark osseointegration technique also to be used in the treatment of partial edentulism.
