This report describes one phase of a long-term comparative implant investigation involving 20 of 120 endosseous implants placed in 30 adult mongrel dogs. Fixed prostheses involving 16 of the 20 (4 control implants) two-stage ceramic endosseous implants have been provided using routine prosthodontic procedures and the limited prosthetic components available for the Bioceram Series II implant system. The prostheses have proven to be functional with minimal maintenance. To date, after 1 year of follow-up, 2 of the two-stage implants have exhibited problems caused by fracture of the hexagonal collar. None of the implants to date has been lost and none of the fixed prostheses has required re-cementation or any other type of maintenance other than normal hygiene. Clinical evaluation suggests continued implant and prosthesis serviceability after 1 year in function. (INT J ORAL MAXILLOFAC IMPLANTS 1992;7:508512.)

Key words: ceramic implant, endosseous implant, root-form implant
